As we kick off 2023, paint companies are announcing their top color choices for the year.

From darker hues to bright pops of color, people are changing things at home, and paint companies believe color can create soothing and uplifting environments.

Take a look at 2023’s top picks from five major paint companies:

Benjamin Moore

A vivacious shade of coral tinged with pink, Benjamin Moore has named Raspberry Blush their color of the year. This shade enlivens the senses with an electric optimism. Never a backdrop, Raspberry Blush is the definition of charismatic color. This unapologetic shade of red was chosen for its distinct presence and personality.

Sherwin Williams

Described as minimal, calming, and intriguing, Sherwin Williams’s color of the year is Redend Point. Minimal yet cozy; this color creates a comforting backdrop for the everyday moments that matter.


Gliddens color of the year is Guacamole! This spirited yet soothing green brings organic energy to any space, which is needed because we all know you’ve probably killed at least three plants this year. Give your home office extra zen or to create that bedroom retreat you’ve always dreamed of.

HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams

Darkroom is HGTV Homes’ 2023 Color of the Year, which is a black paint with purple undertones. Dubbed a “new neutral” and meant to provide a classic-meets-modern-meets retro look, it’s part of the brand’s 2023 Color Collection of the Year, Vintage Homestead. Together, they offer an effortless look that reveals the importance of being hopeful to find stability and balance.


BEHR named Blank Canvas its 2023 Color of the Year, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a warm white. Blank Canvas effortlessly offers a clean and inviting blank slate that allows individuality and creativity to flow freely. This white easily harmonizes with a wide range of hues, including neutrals, earth tones, and pastels, for a charming and cozy appeal.
