Life on the Lake Just Got Better with New 2023 Colors

February 13, 2023

The wonderful thing about constructing a custom home with Harcrest Homes is that you get to choose exactly where your house will be. Whether you dream of a home on the beautiful shores of Lake Lanier in Flowery Branch or a home on a wooded lot in Gwinnett, we can create a home that is beautiful and complements the local scenery. As trends divert to both bold and natural fashions, our custom homebuilding team has compiled a list of this year’s hottest new colors to transform life on the lake.

PANTONE – Viva Magenta

PANTONE unveiled Viva Magenta as its 2023 color selection. To help homeowners and designers select the perfect accompanying shades, the PANTONE Color Institute introduced the Magentaverse, a full lineup of natural tones to accompany this vivacious hue. The contrast between the natural tones and Viva Magenta perfectly completes any living space, bedroom or hobby nook with a bold mixture of red and pink providing a fantastic pop of color.

Following the announcement, Executive Director of the Eiseman Center for Color Leatrice Eiseman said, “Rooted in the primordial, Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.”

Sherwin-Williams – Redend Point

The official Sherwin-Williams selection of Redend Point presents an attractive, natural option for homeowners searching for warm tones to introduce into the house. Harcrest Homes on the lake or in the woods shine in this color selection thanks to the blush and beige undertones that showcase the natural environment. The flexible color choice will make homeowners and guests feel at ease in their custom homes.
