Though it might seem like summer just began – colour season is here. Glidden paint by PPG has just announced their predicted Colour of the Year for 2023. And boy are we are here for it.
“Vining Ivy” is a refreshing “bluish-greenish-something-in-betweenish” tone that is versatile, contemporary, and a total conversation starter. To choose the colour, a team of 35 colour stylists with dynamic world views came together to identify colour trends and forecast the colours they believe we will see everywhere.
If you’re used to debating which colour swatch is which at your local hardware store, this colour invites you to agree to disagree and get the best of both worlds! After a year dominated by decisive greens, this captivating not-quite-blue, pairs beautifully with brass and gold accents for a surprisingly calming touch. Its versatility continues outdoors too. Even as an exterior paint, it can add a pop of colourful, modern intrigue without clashing with more old-fashioned architectural styles or design sensibilities.
If you’re a lover of neutrals—don’t fret! This is a great colour to consider introducing to your bedroom. This restful and calming, balanced organic colour works exceptionally well as an accent wall, especially if you have a lot of light in your bedroom, creating grounded, peaceful mornings.
Glidden also chose a palette of ten colours that work with the 2023 hue flawlessly. You’ll find a cool terracotta clay or a deep spicy mustard shade, each promoting a cozy and earthy feel. For consumers eager to see this colour ASAP, colour experts recommend using this blue-green shade as a wall colour paired with deeper-toned woods and off-white trim. For those looking for a more luxurious feel, Vining Ivy can easily go glam when accessorized with golden accents and bright white trim.
“Even the most modest spaces can benefit from the teal treatment.” Says Glidden Colour Expert, Ashley McCollum, “For those short on square footage but big on style, we recommend using this rich hue as a bold contrast to a neutral palette, making a petite room feel plush
