Every year, Jotun’s paint and color experts create a new color palette that encapsulates the trends and moods shaping our world. The Color Forecast 2023 By Jotun comes with 21 colors we’d love to present.
This year, they’ve introduced a collection of three themes celebrating creativity and authenticity. These aren’t fleeting fashion colors but timeless hues that reflect our evolving tastes and values.
When it comes to our homes, we often forget that they’re not just places to live and work but also vessels for our stories, aspirations, and dreams.
“Our homes tell many stories. The spaces we live in speak not only of how we live our lives, but also of why.”
Jotun’s global color card for 2023 celebrates this idea with a palette of expressive, hopeful shades that transcend the usual trends. These timeless hues are designed to inspire creative expression and invite us to tell our stories through the spaces we inhabit.
Introducing Jotun’s inspiring new color stories for 2023…
1// SERENE PRESENCE
Slow, soothing colors, soft pastels, and healing greens.
“The home should be a place of healing.”
Global Color Manager
There’s something deeply restorative about simplicity. In a chaotic world of constant busyness and distraction, people crave spaces that allow them to disconnect and be fully present. Pared-back minimalism brings us clarity and focus, encouraging us to find inner peace. The “Serene presence” theme embraces this quiet, composed mindset with a calm palette of soft, gentle pastels and healing greens. It’s a celebration of purity and simplicity, letting us disconnect from the outside world’s noise and reconnect in our inner retreat.

2// CURATED LIVING
Sophisticated reds, gallery-style naturals, blue accents.
“Our aim with this palette was to channel the comfort of nostalgia, without getting stuck in the past. ‘By mixing a vintage feel with a modern sensibility, we’ve created an artistic and sophisticated family of colors.”
Global Color Manager
The “Curated Living” palette taps into our need to create spaces that are uniquely ours, express our individuality, and reflect our personal style. The home is seen as a canvas, a place to showcase our creativity and vision. Combining nostalgic tones and contemporary hues, this palette becomes a harmonious blend of the past and the present, inviting us to craft our narratives through color and design. Nostalgia takes center stage here, providing a comforting embrace of the past while keeping us firmly rooted in the present. It’s an invitation to express ourselves through our living spaces, to create a home that truly reflects who we are – today.
3// NATURALLY GROUNDED
Warm earth tones, muted greens, soft yellows and oranges.
“Nature is an inherently calming influence”
Global colour manager
The “Naturally Grounded” palette is rooted in bringing nature’s colors and textures into the home. As society moves faster and faster, people yearn to return to simpler times. The “Naturally Grounded” color palette taps into this yearning, evoking the comforting familiarity of the natural world and the rustic charm of handmade pieces. This palette is more than just a set of colors; it’s a cultural trend that reflects a more profound shift in how people want to live. In a world of screens and busyness, this palette offers a respite, a way to slow down and reconnect with nature and the simple pleasures of life.
