It’s safe to say that striking colors have been all the rage when it comes to current home decor trends. We’ve seen vibrant pinks that have a distinctly millennial or Barbiecore essence, refreshing yellows that make rooms feel bright and even subtle greens that are reminiscent of nature (from Sherwin-Williams 2022 color of the year). But there’s just something timeless about a warm white shade of paint.
That’s why BEHR’s 2023 color of the year, Blank Canvas, feels so spot on.
A welcoming shade that is at once hopeful and refreshing, Blank Canvas is the perfect base for any room and the perfect contrast to some of the louder colors that have been popular during the last few years. We doubt that pops of color on front doors or accent walls will be going anywhere any time soon, but according to BEHR, there’s an “increased desire [among renters and homeowners alike] to move forward and embrace the future.” And since “white is the ultimate color of renewal and fresh starts,” it makes sense that Blank Canvas is the ideal breath of fresh air. It can help create the new start that so many people are craving in their homes.
