Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year pairs well with several Cambria designs.

An annual celebration of color, the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year is the result of a yearlong exploration into design, art, fashion, cultural, and environmental influences around the globe. From its library of over 3,500 shades, Benjamin Moore carefully curates a Color Trends palette that balances modern-day relevance with long-lasting appeal. At the center is one special hue that defines the palette and the moment: The color of the year 2023—Raspberry Blush.

Last year, Benjamin Moore selected October Mist, a gently shaded sage green that quietly anchors a space while encouraging individual expression.

This year, the brand found itself gravitating toward a vivacious shade of coral tinged with pink. Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2023 Raspberry Blush enlivens the senses with an electric optimism. Never has it been clearer that the home is a place of comfort, restoration, revitalization, and rejuvenation, and the need to find simple moments of joy has become paramount.

According to the experts at Benjamin Moore, Raspberry Blush strikes the right chord, setting the stage for Color Trends 2023. Never a backdrop, Raspberry Blush is the definition of charismatic color. This unapologetic shade of red-orange had us thinking: bold, bolder, boldest. This sentiment flows through the rest of the palette as one envisions being immersed in hues that make a statement. Inspired by an artist’s desire to communicate through color, shape, and sound, Color Trends 2023 was built to envelop you in vivacious color.

Embrace more depth of color by pairing Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year 2023, Raspberry Blush, with Cambria’s Delamere. The charcoal/chocolatey background of this neutral quartz design has contrasting white veins. Combined, the pairing elevates a black-and-white aesthetic with punches of color and chrome that are simultaneously modern and classic.

Or you could lean more into tone-on-tone with Cambria’s Black Rock. Its charcoal veins form abstract shapes on a dense black background making it a solid foundation for pairing with either the bold or more neutral selections from Benjamin Moore.

Rose Bay is created with a white foundation infused with robust black marble veining, creating a striking abstract effect where opposites definitely attract—a stunning complement to several selections on this year’s Color Trends Palette.

As part of its Color Trends 2023 palette, Benjamin Moore curated 11 additional hues that push beyond traditional limits and offer inspiration and creativity like rich, warm Cinnamon, gentle pink Conch Shell, rich and balanced Savannah Green, radiant and romantic Starry Night Blue, and deep and soothing North Sea Green.
