Every year, Pantone chooses a Color of the Year. For 2023, its choice was very fitting with the Viva Magenta, which presents a balance between warm and cool that’s symbolic of our existence in the physical and digital world. As we prepare for the new year, here are three ways to incorporate the COY into your space.
Looking to get creative with your space? DDD is an epicenter of the gallery scene in the DFW Metroplex and is home to many must-see works of art from French Impressionism paintings to contemporary installations. For the fine art lover, Laura Rathe Fine Art and Markowicz Fine Art both carry a variety of exquisite contemporary pieces featuring Viva Magenta from wall fragments to paintings on canvas. If photography is more to your taste, head over to the PDNB Gallery where you’ll find art photography and photo-based art that encompasses the COY. And, should you happen to be a fan of historical art, look no further than the Beaux Arts gallery. You’ll find antique prints and rare oil paintings that showcase the warmth and dependability these colors exude.
Fabric + Furnishings
Decorating with the COY makes for a great accent in your space. But, if you prefer to go a little bolder, or want a total makeover, consider incorporating Viva Magenta into the fabrics and furnishings that fill your space. Fortunately, DDD is a key piece of Dallas’ cultural fabric composed of namesake interior design showrooms. Knock out two birds with one stone at Kravet, where you can choose from hundreds of ready-made fabric designs (like the one pictured above) and furniture pieces. If you want more exclusive and/or custom-made fabrics and furniture, stop by Schumacher or Gracie. And, if you’re in the market for artisan textiles or carpets, make a trip to JAMES, which offers both Texas craftsmanship and international creations.
Accents + Accessories
Perhaps less is more to you, and you’re wanting to add subtle dashes of color to spread throughout your space. Luckily, the new Pantone COY selections look great in the form of an accent or accessory. Regardless of which you choose, DDD offers a variety of shops for you to browse for the perfect piece. For handmade rugs, lighting, or inspired designs you deserve, we suggest The Rug Company, Scout Design Studio, or Arteriors Home. If your space gives off more of a vintage feel, then check out Laura Lee Clark or Jan Showers. And, what better way to make for an enjoyable experience than with the help of our experts to guide you through one of our sensational showrooms as you seek to bring some creative color to your space?
Ready to add a dash of crimson red to your living space? All of us at DDD are excited and ready to help you cultivate your space of the year by incorporating Pantone’s Colors of the Year. Let the color of Viva Magenta represent a new signal of strength and optimism for the future to come. Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
