The Pantone Institute made a bold, exciting choice when it named Viva Magenta its 2023 Color of the Year. This lively shade — Viva Magenta 18-750, to be exact — encourages living in the moment and adds a sense of vitality and richness to any space. But how, exactly, can you incorporate it into your Singh home? Read on to find out!
Create a lively accent wall
Giving one wall in your home a vibrant magenta hue will make it the room’s focal point. This accent wall featured on DigsDigs.com shows the power of this color to add character to any room. And you don’t have to stop once you’re done painting. Capitalize on the attention this wall will naturally attract and add your boldest piece of art for you and your guests to enjoy. Or, create a gallery wall of photos, giving your loved ones a rich, engaging backdrop.
Get creative with wallpaper
One trend predicted to grow in 2023 is wallpaper, particularly wallpaper with botanical patterns. Wallpaper adds texture to a space, and its repeating patterns can invoke a sense of calm. Babson Peel & Stick Floral Wallpaper, available on Wayfair.com, for instance, could be used on the wall behind the headboard in your Singh bedroom, as a full-room backdrop of a child or teenager’s room, or even a fun addition to a corner filled with house plants. The possibilities are endless!
Add a warm pop to a neutral space
Because magenta pops in backdrops of whites, creams, and grays, it can add a tremendous amount of character to an otherwise neutral-colored room. Pick out a few key pieces in this bold hue or add a few embellishments to items you own – the complimentary bold and subtle colors will provide a sense of lively harmony. Magenta curtains, for instance, like those from SpoonflowerHome on Etsy, will create a lovely focal point in an otherwise neutral living room.
Stay warm with a cozy rug
A good rug can tie a whole room together, which goes double for color as rich as magenta. In the winter, a rug with this hue will warm the space visually and keep your feet toasty. This magenta area rug from Modern Rugs and Decor works perfectly under a desk, beneath a dresser, or in front of a window in your bedroom. Are you looking to cover a larger area? Get a larger cut and place it beneath your couch or coffee table in your living room for maximum comfort and color!
Pantone’s Viva Magenta celebrates the current moment in style, fashion, and home decor. But since you aren’t constantly redecorating, make sure to choose pieces that have staying power in your Singh home! Whether you go with bold statement pieces or accent items full of character, Viva Magenta’s incorporation in your home will ultimately reflect personal taste and a style that’s uniquely yours.
