Think Pink to Boost Your Winter Mood

With rising popularity in home design, pinkish hues add a pop of color to brighten homes during the colder months.

Paint firms are honing in on earthy shades of pink as their choices for 2023 Color of the Year, and with “Barbiecore” design trending, it’s good timing for pink to take center stage.

Sherwin-Williams chose “Redend Point,” a blush-and-beige color with pink undertones, as its 2023 Color of the Year. "People have been drawn to nature-inspired and earthy tones the past couple years, and this is something that will continue into 2023 and beyond," says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. 

The paint firm Dunn-Edwards chose Terra Rosa, a rosy blend of brown and burgundy. “This translates to design through lush, sophisticated touches with equal parts prettiness and drama," says Sara McLean, a color expert for Dunn-Edwards.
