2023 Paint Color Ideas: What’s Trending for the New Year?

 2023 Paint Color Ideas: What’s Trending for the New Year?

Ahhh, the new year is underway and it’s time to rethink your home’s style. Plus, with the holidays in the rearview mirror, you likely have a little extra wear and tear from all those guests to take care of. This is an awesome time for interior painting!

To help inspire you and get you pointed in the right direction, we thought we’d offer a quick recap of some of 2023’s most popular interior paint colors. Don’t feel stuck with these options, but use them as a springboard for your own creativity. Your paint job should reflect you, your personality, and the colors you love, not just what’s trendy.

With that said, let’s dig in.

The colors of 2023

Cool neutrals like white and gray dominated the scene for quite a while, but 2023 is all about natural colors, ranging from subdued to bold and eye-catching.

Softer neutrals like creams, light taupes, and beiges are a popular choice, creating a calming atmosphere, or you can make a bolder statement with rich berry tones. Greens, browns, and yellows are also a great way to develop a warm and inviting vibe. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, pink, orange, and yellow are perfect for adding a playful touch.

And remember, if you aren’t ready to commit to painting the whole space with a vibrant color you can use these options for an accent wall too.

Would you like some concrete examples?

Redend Point, Sherwin-Williams

Sherwin-Williams has predicted that bright, saturated colors will be in demand. As their answer to the call, they’re promoting Redend Point, a bright, cheerful shade of orangey red that will definitely brighten up any room.

Other top picks include Cascading Clouds, a light, airy gray with subtle purple undertones, and Rushing River, a bold teal color that really makes a statement. Other popular colors to look out for include Dusk Dune, a deep, moody gray, and True Turquoise, an eye-catching teal.

Raspberry Blush, Benjamin Moore

This is a really unique color, blending pink, peach, and coral hues. It stands alone, or pairs well with a variety of colors for a classic, yet modern, look.

Terra Rosa, Dunn-Edwards

Warm and earthy, Terra Rosa delivers a cheery vibe directly inspired by terra-cotta. If you like neutrals like brown or burgundy but want something new, this is an awesome pick.

Customer Reviews

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”

— Jo

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.
Livermore, CA

“I love the article in the paper on your company. Thank you for supporting our community by painting at the Claremont Middle School. Thanks!”

— Carla Banks

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”
