The Top 10 Most Fun & Vibrant Paint Color Trends For 2023

Today we are talking all about the top paint color trends for 2023. This year in the interior design world is about creating fun, vibrant, and colorful spaces.

People are getting away from that cookie-cutter, being-like-everyone-else, all-white-everything look. Based on that, I am sharing the top 10 home paint colors for 2023 today.

Galapagos Turquoise by Benjamin Moore

1. Galapagos Turquoise by Benjamin Moore

You'll notice many colors from this list are from a jewel-toned color theme, and that is true for the first paint color I'm going to share with you, which is Galapagos Turquoise. This dark teal perfect mix of blue and green, creates a really rich turquoise color, just as the name implies.

This color looks great on cabinets, maybe in the kitchen or laundry room, or you could even paint an entire bathroom, maybe like a small powder room, in this bright blue color to give it an elevated look. Benjamin Moore describes this color as a rich, attractive teal that mirrors the glistening depths of the ocean waters.

October Mist by Benjamin Moore

2. October Mist by Benjamin Moore

This was Benjamin Moore's color of the year for 2022 for a good reason. It is a pretty pale green color that gives a relaxing vibe; you can use it anywhere in your home. You could paint an entire room this color or use it as an accent wall or on kitchen or bathroom cabinets.

October Mist is still trending for 2023; as you'll see, a lot of greens are popular this year in the paint world. This one is a warm, welcoming, soft green color that is just beautiful.

Evergreen Fog by Sherwin-Williams

3. Evergreen Fog by Sherwin-Williams

As more people are moving away from the all-gray everything, green tones are coming in. So if you don't want to go too bold with one of the rich jewel-toned colors, try Evergreen Fog. It'll give you that warm, neutral gray color, but with a green undertone that is just really pretty.

Big Cypress by PPG Paints

4. Big Cypress by PPG Paints

This is such a warm and fun pink, almost coral, color. It brings in that 60s and 70s vibe that is trending. I love how PPG Paints describes this color as a warm, huggable room. How cute is that?

Urbane Bronze or by Sherwin-Williams

5. Urbane Bronze or by Sherwin-Williams

This dark warm charcoal color can sometimes look slightly brown in certain light. It's one of the darkest non-black colors you can find, with an LRV (Light Reflectance Value) of only 8. Incorporate this trending paint color on cabinets. Think kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room.

Sherwin-Williams describes this rich color as rooted in nature. This brownish-gray evokes down-to-earth tranquility and subtle sophistication that is hard to beat.

Cut the Mustard by Sherwin Williams

6. Cut the Mustard by Sherwin Williams

This fun color is a bold and vibrant yellow. Cut the Mustard would work best as a feature wall, but you might get away with painting all the walls in this bright yellow if it's a small powder room. It would also look really good on cabinets or furniture pieces. This deep amber hue instantly reminds me of the Topaz birthstone for November.

Canyon Dust by Behr

7. Canyon Dust by Behr

This soft, dusty, coral-pink color fits the trend of warm tones. Try this paint color in one of your kids' or laundry rooms. It would also be a pretty color as an accent wall, maybe in a bedroom or even a home office.

Aegean Teal by Benjamin Moore

8. Aegean Teal by Benjamin Moore

This is a pretty creamy blue-teal color, but it's got some gray undertones that bring it a little bit back down to earth. Aegean Teal is not bold or vibrant, but it still provides a great pop of color. This shade looks great on exterior doors, as an accent wall, or even on kitchen cabinets.

Deep Pine by Dunn-Edwards

9. Deep Pine by Dunn-Edwards

Green is a trending paint color, and this one has a deep, rich, almost emerald-green look. It's also extremely dark, with an LRV of only 5. I think it's going to look great in an office space or even a bedroom, somewhere that you can incorporate some warmer details like wood tones, which will make the color stand out in the space.

Carnelian by Sherwin-Williams

10. Carnelian by Sherwin-Williams

This beautiful burgundy is an excellent option if you're looking for something bold and dark in the red paint color family. Sherwin-Williams describes it as a deeply saturated violet with warm red undertones. It appears almost brown in some lights and exudes a dark luster, suggesting mystery and romance.

Carnelian would be good in a bedroom, and this color would also be pretty in a bathroom, especially a powder room or guest bath. It could be really fun on cabinets as well.

Grape Juice by Benjamin Moore

Bonus: Grape Juice by Benjamin Moore

OK, I have a bonus paint color for you. Grape Juice is not only delicious, but evokes nostalgic memories of being a kid, and grape juice is the best juice out there. Again, This is a bold, purple, burgundy color with more purple undertones as opposed to the red from the Carnelian I just shared.

This is a fun color to incorporate, especially if you want to go pretty trendy with some bold, bright jewel-tone colors this year. Benjamin Moore even says it brings to mind a lush, full-bodied wine. I love how it looks as an accent color but also on walls as well.

    I’ve done my whole house in jewel tones! I’m so over greys creams and taupe… I’m so excited to walk into my rooms, and actually see a color palette. My kitchen is Russian green, my Dining room is colonial blue, my family room is Desert clay and red brick is on my fireplace! My Office is done in the blue my bedroom is the green and red and my grandkids play and nap room is lavender! The main bathroom blue again! My house has a cabin feel, as we live in a spacious subdivision on the edge of woods. My house is a ranch at 1700 ft all lived in house. I have inherited way too much furniture and my hubby and I live happily in our retirement years. Y’all come visit…

      I want to come an visit your color wonderland. I want to paint me house similarily- different colors for each room. Do you unify the rooms with the same trim color?

    Husband's office is painted in Urbane Bronze. My office is painted in the canyon color. The living areas are painted SW Greek Villa white with Urbane Bronze trim/doors. The contrast is striking. Love to see color coming back. Like Jeannette, I am so over grey and beige. Colors of nature make us feel warm and cozy inside our nests.
