Marc’s Bold Viva Magenta Living Room Design Board

Design by: Marc Atiyolil, Editor-in-Chief

While we often encourage people to embrace trendy colors in a cautious way, sometimes going bold is just a lot more fun! If you’d like to embrace a trendy color in a bold way without making a permanent commitment, look to your walls. For this space, I envision a room painted in Viva Magenta, Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year! Furnishings and décor in luxurious finishes and neutral colors give the space a high-end look without competing with the bold wall color. A few simple, inexpensive pops of color in the space help keep the feeling cohesive without overwhelming the eye. In the future, when you tire of the color, simply repaint the walls and you have a whole new look without having to redecorate the room!
