This sentiment flows through the rest of the palette as we immerse ourselves in hues that make a statement," says Benjamin Moore about its 2023 Color of the Year and the coordinating palette. "Inspired by an artist’s desire to communicate through color, shape, and sound, Color Trends 2023 was built to envelop you in vivacious color."
