Pantone unveiled the much anticipated Viva Magenta as their colour of the year for 2023 and we’re already starting to see this stunning shade infiltrate the home décor scene. Sitting within the red family, Viva Magenta carries many of the same connotations in terms of colour psychology. Yes, the colour red arouses emotions like passion, ambition and romance but it also boasts connotations of luxury and regality.
Viva Magenta is a bold, brave and beautiful colour but it is undeniably a dominating hue that isn’t for everyone. Here are our top tips for making pink, purple and deep red shades work in every room of your home.
A Brave and Bold Shade that Brightens Every Space

Pantone describes this year’s colour as an “unconventional shade for an unconventional time” and one that encourages others to write a new narrative. It’s a reminder that darker times can be left in the past as we surge towards brighter days. As we leave one year and enter another, there’s never been a better time to leave the past behind and write a fresh positive chapter. Of course, refreshing your décor is another way to embrace new beginnings and we think that a pop of colour could be just the thing to breathe new life into a tired space.
Viva Magenta is a shade that most aligns with pink, purple and red shades and we adore the vivid shades that our Pink Rose Jungle wall mural combines together and the floral design adds a softness to the finished look. This mural would totally transform a tiny guest bathroom or add a splash of colour to a living area.
Tranquil Scenes that Harp Back to Nature

While this year’s Pantone shade certainly packs a punch, this mural that uses muted pinks, purples and magentas to create a moody sunset shows that embracing this colour trend doesn’t have to be harsh or overpowering. These powerful hues can be paired with grey or monochrome colour pallets to create a softer aesthetic. The Elegant Flight wall mural mixes deep pinks and purples with flashes of metallic that catch the light and add a contemporary feel to any interior.
We love the dream-like quality this mural possesses and it’s ideal to transform a teen’s room or an adult’s room alike. This mural would add a touch of style and interest to any bedroom without making the space feel cluttered or messy.

Are bold florals not your go-to? If you like to stay up to date with the latest colour trends but prefer to stay in your comfort zone, our Pink Panels wall mural is the perfect way to press the reset button. Wood paneling for walls was one of the hottest décor trends of 2022 and we don’t see it falling far from the trend radar any time soon. The beauty of wall paneling is that it blends with both modern and classic décor schemes and our panel wall murals allow you to get the look saving you time and money in the process. What better way to add a luxurious touch to your home?
Botanical Prints but Make it Boujie

Pick out the deep pinks in this mural and tie them into the rest of the room décor with a plush velvet couch or a cosy love chair.
