How to Incorporate Pantone’s Color Of The Year 2023 With a Stencil Trend!
Welcome back to the Cutting Edge Stencils Blog! 2023 is here and Pantone has released the color of the year! This year’s color is called Viva Magenta and we are here to break down the full stencil trend report. Viva Magenta is quoted as being “brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.” We hope this blog post inspires you to find the perfect stencils for your 2023 home improvement project!
Why did Pantone Choose Viva Magenta as the 2023 Color of the Year?
As always, Pantone’s goal is to embody cultural movements through color, and this year is all about empowerment. This confident color is rooted in nature, undeniably bold and expressive.
Leatrice Eisman, VP of the Pantone Color Institute says of this confident hue, “In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known.
Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.”
Let’s Stencil with Viva Magenta…
When it comes to interior design, Pantone describes this color as one that “invokes the spirit of nature, a carmine red that does not boldly dominate but instead creates a beguiling presence, whether introduced through a painted wall, accent furniture or home decor, or acting as a bold accent in a pattern”. Of course, we could not help but notice that this color is made for our wall stencils!
Our Vintage Rose & Lily wall stencil by William Morris and Pantone’s Viva Magenta were simply made for one another. We cannot get over the dimension and luxury this crimson hue evokes when stenciled on an accent wall.
Steal the High-End Look with Stencils…
Our mission at Cutting Edge Stencils has always been to bring designer quality stencil patterns to our customers that are not only user-friendly, but also super affordable. Layering pattern and texture has been on the rise when it comes to home decor trends. As expected, wallpaper has seen a bit of revival in this space; but it can become so costly for the average homeowner.
Let’s take a look at how you can achieve this stencil trend look for less!
Our Floral Medley Wall Stencil is a great way to transform a room in a few hours and bring a garden inside without a green thumb. The best part? This stencil only costs $39.95! That’s a huge savings when compared with a nearly identical wallpaper from Spoonflower that will cost $119 / roll!
Want something more modern?
Take a look at our Flying Cranes Stencil in this brilliant tone. This avian wall stencil pattern was designed to fill your space with a sense of luxury and freshness. Perfect for expressing your creative style in any living room, dining room, bedroom and more!
Again, this gorgeous stencil comes in at nearly a third of the cost of this Spoonflower wallpaper.
Stencil the nursery!
Nursery accent walls are probably the top space we see most DIYers incorporating a stencil trend into their home. Preparing for a baby can be expensive. Stencils are an affordable alternative that don’t force you to sacrifice the style and aesthetic you are dreaming of.
This reusable Tanglewood Forest Stencil rings up at $46.95. That is a HUGE savings when compared to this similar wallpaper pattern. So yes, you heard that right, you can get the look for the ENTIRE room for way less.
Stencils for the win!
The great thing about our wall stencils is that they are reusable and completely customizable. Due to the high quality and durability of our stencils, one stencil can be purchased and used over and over again. Unlike wallpaper that you have to purchase by the roll and is often a one-time-use product.
Stencils are also great for color trends like Pantone’s color of the year! You can emulate your inner Viva Magenta and express yourself in a bold, allover pattern, or you can add subtle touches by selecting portions of the stencil where you want a pop of color. Either way, you are in control of the color palette with our stencils!
