There's nothing quite like the transformational impact of interior paint. You can choose a paint color based on your design taste, the lighting circumstances of a room, or the mood you want to create and discover how the perfect color can make all the difference in your home. But, if you're looking for some paint color inspiration for your next project, we asked some design experts from throughout the country to reveal the top paint color trends for 2023.

Their most popular paint color selections will appeal to a wide range of design enthusiasts and complement current interior design trends. For minimalists, we can still expect to see tried-and-true white, striking black tones, and relaxing grays. Yet, there is also an opportunity for far more brilliant colors, ranging from citrus bursts to elegant blues. And don't forget about the 2023 Colors of the Year. To name a few, there's Benjamin Moore's Raspberry Blush, Behr's Blank Canvas, and Sherwin-Williams' Redend Point.

So, grab your paint brush and use this list as an encouragement to reinvent your home inside with a wonderful paint color. It's the perfect way to kick off the new year in style!


Small shots of large citrus add excitement to a room without creating a visual overload. It's similar to a brightly colored throw pillow for the wall. When utilized in a specific section of a wall, it defines a space and complements everything. Even the color beige.


Blush had its day in 2022, but rust may be on the rise. It has a less feminine air and fits within an earthy modern color pallet, making it a lovely complement to Dijon yellows, teals, and greens.

Monochromatic Looks

Utilizing the same color and finish on the walls, trim, and ceiling allows you to maintain traditional details like crown molding while providing an instant modern update. Going all out makes spaces feel dramatic, warm, and inviting all at the same time. This method works well with a satin finish. It's not as shiny as semi-gloss, but it has a sheen without being gleaming.


My favorite black is as much about the sheen as it is about the color: Fine Paints of Europe's HollandLac in black are the ultimate for glossy black doors. I've utilized it in the majority of my own residences (and a few clients). It takes a skilled application, but the results are beautiful; glossy to the point of reflection, this paint has the finish of black glass.

Soft Blush

Pink combined with other colors is a popular trend. It's an interesting accent to mix with everything from deep blues to light neutrals, ranging from subtle mild blushes to screaming magenta. Take the time to do thorough research before hiring a contractor for your home renovation. Consider at least three contractors, ask for their references, and check out their portfolios of previous works. Never hire a contractor without seeing proof of their capabilities and always get estimates and plans in writing before they begin work on the property.


Plum is becoming the new neutral. Richer tones are used to blend nicely with neutral rooms to create a warm, inviting, and luxury atmosphere.

Ultramarine Blue

The hue ultramarine blue will be popular in the future year. It's a vibrant, rich, and beautiful color.

Redend Point

Renovations can be extremely stressful when you’re doing it as a family and even more so when you’re going through it solo. Build a strong support system that you can rely on when the going gets too tough and complicated.

Blank Canvas

Blank Canvas simply provides a clean and inviting blank canvas that encourages uniqueness and creativity. This white goes well with a variety of colors, including neutrals, earth tones, and pastels, for a lovely and warm look. Blank Canvas also pairs wonderfully with black for a dramatic impact, and with vibrant accents like green or cobalt blue to instantly improve your mood.

Raspberry Blush

People are eager to bring color back into their homes, stepping outside of their color comfort zones. Raspberry Blush 2008-30 and the Color Trends 2023 palette enable the employment of bold colors that delight and charm while transforming interiors for amazing outcomes.
