Like shiny red sports cars turn heads and stunning red dresses at weddings upstage brides, Benjamin Moore’s charismatic Color of the Year 2023 is a scene stealer that exudes confidence and demands attention. Every. Time.
Raspberry Blush 2008-30, a richly saturated red-orange that enlivens our surroundings and awakens our senses, is unapologetic in its bravado while making a bold statement. This color is no backdrop. It’s a center stage, big-name-on-the-marquee kind of showshopper ready for its close up. It makes color the star.
“People are ready to bring color back into the home, taking a step outside their color comfort zones,” said Andrea Magno, Color Marketing & Development Director at Benjamin Moore.
“Raspberry Blush 2008-30 and the Color Trends 2023 palette empower the use of statement colors that deliver delight and personality, while transforming rooms for incredible results.”
Breaking free of the trend toward muted, softer paint colors that may have been reflective of a mood, but didn’t make a particular statement or take a stand, this year’s Color Trends choices are changing the conversation.
Led by vivacious Raspberry Blush, this complementary palette celebrates color to influence dramatic transformations. Together or separately, they can revitalize a living room, revive a dining room or rouse sleepy architectural details. Quite simply, they add “rawr” to wherever they go, from feature walls to front doors.

As it turns out, the powder room was where one went to refresh their powdered wig and nose or to make a quick retreat from boorish conversation (yawn!). Typically, the powder room was a water closet near the formal entertaining room, making it convenient for guests needing a moment to themselves.
