How to Make Your Home Exude Confidence with Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year

When someone walks into your home, you want them to feel like they’ve entered a dimension that channels your personality. Whether that means calming and refined, eclectic and modern or something in between, it’s important that you are coming through. And you know what? That’s confidence, baby! If you’re looking to kick up your home’s individuality even further, Benjamin Moore’s 2023 Color of the Year is exactly what your space is craving.

So, tell me! What’s the Color of the Year?

It’s Raspberry Blush 2008-30, a vivacious shade of coral tinged with pink. Raspberry Blush is bright, bold and unapologetic, and it’s all about enlivening your surroundings. The saturated shade is the definition of a charismatic color and makes for the perfect addition to any room in your home.

To celebrate this year’s color, Benjamin Moore partnered with electro-funk duo Chromeo to underscore the upbeat and optimistic tone of the entire palette (more on that later), and they even curated eight Spotify playlists to get those creative juices flowing.

How do I use Raspberry Blush in my home?

Glad you asked. At first glance, Raspberry Blush is a very vibrant color that some might find intimidating, but hear us out. It’s great way to push out of your color comfort zone, and it’s more versatile than you might think. Give your traditional red dining room a modern update, or try it in the entryway to welcome guests with a splash of color. You can even dial it back and paint an arch or accent wall in Raspberry Blush and pair it with a complementing neutral. Bottom line: No matter how or what you choose to paint, your home will exude confidence.

What about the overall color trends for 2023?

Benjamin Moore’s 2023 palette is bold, vibrant and sumptuous. Each color was chosen for its distinct presence, personality and inspiring boundary-pushing.
