Viva Magenta Is the Pantone Color of the Year
Viva Magenta is the 2023 Pantone Color of the Year that the New York Times describes as “a hue with a lust for life. Not the aggressive synthetic of Barbie, not the intense luxury of Valentino couture, not the tired millennial salmon, but a saturated shade honking on the threshold of fuchsia, definitely not organic but not quite electric.”
Pantone describes Viva Magenta as “a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying and a boundary-less shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement.”
How will Viva Magenta find its way into the new dream kitchens created by Alaska homeowners in 2023? Viva Magenta makes a bold statement in their new kitchens or baths. While not a color that we would recommend for kitchen cabinets, the choice of such a bold, bright color is becoming more popular. White will frequently remain the color of choice for many homeowners in Anchorage, yet we find an equal number of those renovating their homes to gravitate toward colorful palettes ranging from bold and earthy tones such as burgundy, dusty blue, deep fuchsia, and khaki green to a new appreciation for neutral colors.
The desire for earth tones in a new dream kitchen is the desire to bring a sense of warmth to the kitchen. We’ve seen increased demand for gold tones, blues and green shades. Homeowners in Alaska have discovered multiple ways to incorporate color into their new kitchens even when opting for white cabinetry. Brightly colored accent walls, gold-toned finished cabinet and appliance hardware and plumbing fixtures, art work, chair and bar stool fabrics, backsplashes and glassware provide numerous options to make a bold, colorful and distinct design statement that bring personality and warmth to any space.

Homeowners in Alaska continue to dream and look for inspiration to make their homes the envy of the neighborhood. With many Anchorage homeowners continuing to work partially from home, the role of the kitchen has been transformed into serving as multifunctional spaces.
One of the most frequent regrets among Alaska homeowners who renovated their kitchens in the past several years is not paying more attention to organizational tools and storage needs. We almost always propose a storage plan that addresses how often they cook, entertain and hold family gatherings.
The role of the kitchen has been transformed during the global pandemic for homeowners in Alaska. While the kitchen has always been considered the epicenter of the home, kitchens have evolved into multifunctional spaces that serve as offices, libraries, studies, classrooms, conference rooms, cafes, and hobby centers among numerous other roles.
