Hipstoric home trend

“In 2023, people will embrace the Hipstoric home trend and find new ways to honour beloved stuff in their homes by combining vintage—often inherited—pieces with their modern styles. To bring this trend to life, people should try to mix modern and antique furniture and look for new ways to keep cherished pieces. From repurposing antique windows or furniture to upcycling beloved furniture, this trend is all about making the old new again with a modern twist.”

Viva Magenta

Exuding vim and vigour, Pantone’s colour of the year is Viva Magenta (18-1750), a bold shade from the red family symbolizing joy and strength. When incorporating this shade into your lifestyle, think of pops of magenta in a statement piece of furniture or throw pillows, an oversized sweater or a swipe of magenta on the lips à la ‘90s style.

“In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real. Pantone Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known. Rooted in the primordial, Viva Magenta reconnects us to the original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, it galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.”

– Leatrice Eiseman, executive director, Pantone Color Institute.
