Trending home colour palettes for 2023

Last year’s colour trends were all about muted, natural and earthy tones, but as we move full steam ahead into 2023, expect to see greige become a dominant force in home painting. Lets take a look at some of the hottest colour trends for 2023.

The colours that are trending for 2023

You’ll find these colours in home decorating magazines, on the runways and social media.


Greige is a colour that’s a mix of grey and beige, which makes it a neutral shade that can be used in any room of the house. It is considered a cool-toned hue, so if you want to create a modern look in your home’s interior, then greige might be the right choice for you.

Greige has been trending recently as it’s been seen on everything from clothing to furniture pieces and now even houses!


Two-tone colour schemes are becoming more popular, as they’re simple yet sophisticated. Two colours are used in equal quantities and either both shades or one shade of each colour is used throughout the room. Colour can be used on walls and furniture. The key here is balance – if you’re unsure about how much contrast will work in your home’s decor, start by choosing one strong accent piece like an area rug or utilising home painting services before deciding how many bold elements are best suited for its layout!


Lavender is a soft, delicate and feminine colour. It’s also used for interiors that require a calming atmosphere. Lavender can be used in bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms as it creates an air of tranquillity in the room.

The colour has been associated with royalty since ancient times; it was once the favourite shade of Queen Elizabeth I who wore lavender dresses on her trips outside London because she believed it would protect her from illness caused by the bad air quality in large cities. The royal connection continues today as many designers use this hue on their wedding dresses for brides looking for something different from traditional white gowns! While it hasn’t been a favourite for many years, expect to see it make a comeback this year.


Camel is a colour between yellow and orange. It’s a warm hue that’s popular in interior design right now, but it can also be used to create an inviting space for guests.

Camel is a neutral colour, meaning it will work well with any decorating style you choose – traditional or contemporary! It’s also great for kitchens and bathrooms because it doesn’t clash with white ceramic tiles (like other browns might). And if you want to add some warmth to your bedroom without making things too dark or heavy-looking, camel provides just enough colour without overwhelming the room with reds or purples like many other shades would do.


Turquoise is a calming colour that’s perfect for any room in your home. It can be used in living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, offices and more!

Turquoise has been around forever but it really came into its own when it became popular during the 1960s hippie movement. There are many shades of turquoise: light (leaning towards aqua), medium (leaning towards green) or dark (leaning towards blue).


Aubergine is a deep purple colour that’s often confused with eggplant. In interior design, this colour is usually used for statement pieces such as chairs or tables. It’s also great for moody spaces because it can make you feel like you’re surrounded by darkness.


You can use green-grey in all rooms of the house, from your entryway to your kitchen to your master bedroom. It’s a good choice if you’re looking for something modern or coastal.

The green-grey palette has cool tones that are perfect for winter, but warm enough not to feel cold on warmer days as well when paired with light wood furniture or white walls (or both).

Sunset pink

Sunset pink is a warm, light shade that’s different from magenta. It has more red in it than magenta does, which makes it more versatile and easy to use. Sunset pink is trending because it can go with other colours like grey and white or black accents and even complement metallic elements in your home decor.

If you’re looking for ways to incorporate sunset pink into your space, here are some ideas:

  • Paint one wall in an accent room with this colour (such as the dining room).
  • Add some pops of sunset pink pillows or throw blankets on top of your existing furniture pieces like sofas/couches; these additions will add some visual interest while also complementing other elements throughout your home space

Whites, greys and charcoals will continue to dominate home colour choices

While you’ll see the colours mentioned above more often throughout 2023, whites, greys and charcoals will continue to dominate home colour choices. These timeless neutrals are versatile, and calming and can be used in any space. They work well with other colours or as a base for a bolder colour scheme.

Whites are one of the most popular interior design colours because they’re so easy on the eye; they create an airy feeling in rooms that lack natural light or have lots of windows that let in lots of sunlight (like kitchens). Whites also make rooms look bigger than they actually are because white walls reflect light around them rather than absorbing it as other colours do.

Greys add depth without being too dark – perfect if you want to create a calm ambience without going overboard on colour! Greys work well with almost any other shade due to their neutral nature – think grey paint combinations such as charcoal/charcoal-black with gold accents – but go wild experimenting with different shades because there’s no right answer here!
