One of the highlights of a new year (for home DIY and décor enthusiasts at least) is always rounding up the top paint picks for a peek at where interior design is headed.

And after the year of greens that was 2022, a heatwave has seemingly hit the hues for 2023, with both warm neutrals and saturated shades of pink being selected by several leading brands as their “Color of the Year.”

Explore the trending colors below, and check out our favorite designer wall plate pairings, for some new year’s inspiration for your home.


Color of the Year: Blank Canvas (DC-003)

With a name like “Blank Canvas,” you just know this is going to be a paint pick that’s a perfect, fresh start for any style of décor. With a welcoming hint of warmth but enough true neutrality to fit every taste, there’s no limit to where this color can fit or what designs you can build around it. Try a balancing act by matching it with bolder textures or darker finishes, like those of our Macassar or Satin Black Wall Plates. Or keep warming things up with trending metallics like our Brushed Satin Brass, Matte Antique Copper or any of these fantastic Bronze options: Bronze, Hubbardton Forge Bronze, or Oil-Rubbed Bronze.
