Colours to embrace and uplift 2023

In 2023, rich and harmonious colours will be essential in products and interiors that relieve, reassure and revitalize us. Across all sectors and markets, consumers will be yearning for colour that brings calm and joy. Nature and technology are the leading influences. Here are the key colours for 2023.

THYME GREEN - NCS: Nordic Mystique 6508-G39Y
MUSHROOM - NCS: Muscatnut 4806-Y38R

THYME GREEN is inspired by the deep forests with ancient trees and mossy ground. Thyme green is a colour that encourages contemplation and connection with nature. MUSHROOM is a earthy, rich and natural brown that provides grounding and reassurance. Mushroom and Dark Mushroom are versatile colours that works well alongside both metal and oak. TEAL BLUE (NCS: Coastel blue 5411-B02G) gives associations to the ocean and is a great alternative for long term investments. Its rich, dark blues are balanced by the slight green hue, inspired by the ocean and fjords.

BREEZY BLUE / NCS: Nordic Breeze 2107-B01G

SMOKED OAK wood tint is chosen to balance perfectly with Mushroom and Thyme Green, but will also be a sophisticated companion to a wealth of other textile and leather colours. Earthy, rich and natural are the keywords. BREEZY BLUE signals air and glaciers and is a colour that lines up with our search for inner peace. This elegant, balanced pastel exudes an air of lightness and harmony. PLATINUM GREY (NCS: Tåkedis S3000N) is a rocky colour which is complex enough to stand out on its own, but also versatile enough to sit alongside almost any other hue, lending warmth and balance.
