Spruce up your home with our edits of furniture and home accessories in feel-good colours.
As we usher in a new year confronted by continuing challenges – a global energy crisis, surging fuel prices, inflation, and pandemic uncertainty – we are all in need of a dopamine rush for a happier and brighter 2023. That’s why feel-good colours will reign in the interior world this year as a catalyst to delight your eyes and uplift your mood.
Command your home with softer shades of bright colours that radiate warmth, such as mustard yellow and blush pink, and pair them with jewel-toned accents to channel an energising vibe to your home.
One of the jewel-inspired must-haves is Viva Magenta, a nuanced crimson tone named by Pantone as the “Colour of the Year 2023”. Described by the colour authority as a “power colour that celebrates life”, Viva Magenta signals bravery, optimism, and fun with a tasteful balance of softness and grace.
This echoes Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year 2023 of Raspberry Blush, a vibrant shade of coral tinged with pink that evokes an upbeat tone. Match the lively shades of red with sapphire blue or emerald to add drama and life to your living space.
Bolder patterns are also on the rise, even when they appear mostly on accessories such as cushions and plates. Patterns and motifs inspired by nature and wildlife are having a moment as we look to move on from the pandemic-ridden past few years and add some fun and dimensions in our homes that underscore our personality.
We’ve rounded out a selection of happiness-inducing furniture and accessories ranging from seating solutions, lighting and carpets to tableware and fabrics to help you pull together a fresh new look for a better 2023.
