Incorporate Pantone's Color of the Year Into Your Life With These Great Pieces

In case you missed it, we're officially in a new year.

While that doesn't mean a whole lot (other than having to hear about all your friends' failed resolutions), it does mean that Pantone has blessed us with a new color of the year—and this one is good.

For those who don't know, Pantone is essentially the language of color. The Pantone Color System is used as a standard to match colors (kind of like how we all used seconds, minutes and hours to refer to time), but Pantone is also a company that puts their genius to good use every year by gifting us with a fresh hue that gets to be the "it" color of the time. This year's color? Viva Magenta. This vivid pink hails from the red family and is a shade that Pantone describes as "vibrating with vim and vigor" and "expressive of a new signal of strength." Now doesn't that sound like something we could all use more of in 2023?

But how exactly do you incorporate such an intense shade into your everyday life? Whether you're a fan of bold colors like this already or not, we've got some ideas that are sure to turn you into a believer:
