Benjamin Moore thinks that this tart and confident hue will be a hit in the coming year. We can’t top their own description of this shade:
“A vivacious shade of coral tinged with pink, Raspberry Blush enlivens the senses with an electric optimism.”
It’s perfect for accent walls, to add some warmth to any size room, and yes, it exudes a happy vibe! We’ve selected some designs that will help you set this mood in your own rooms.
Vase of Beauty would look fantastic as a backsplash or as a piece of framed art. This glass mosaic wall art has a special glow.
Our Manhattan Bridge at Sunset Marble Mosaic is a fine focal point for any room. Handset tiles depict the Bridge with streetlight reflections on the river.
The unexpected look of the Oval Chain Border mosaic pattern is the perfect finish for any room. Leave it as a sole accent for a sophisticated touch in bathrooms and kitchens.

The deep mixed greens of our Emerald Shades border design will complete your color scheme. Use them liberally around fireplaces, in kitchens, and anywhere in the bathroom
Starry Night Blue
Benjamin Moore describes this 2023 paint color: “A radiant navy akin to the dark indigo of dusk, this inky hue breathes romance into any space. Depth and dimension define walls painted in Starry Night Blue, a captivating hue with just a touch of violet in its undertone.”
Reminiscent of the lapis lazuli semi-precious stones we use in our mosaic art, Starry Night Blue is a knockout. Consider bringing this shade into your home with a selection of our mosaic art. For example, our Patterned Circles Compass Medallion features neutral toned marble stones with a central pop of radiant indigo at the center.
Shams III is a compelling piece of mosaic art that would look amazing as a kitchen backsplash, where the marble tiles will stand up to kitchen dramas.

Our Wild Flowers wall art picks up the creamy neutrals of the Origin Palette, and infuses them with a carefree tangle of color and foliage.
Dialing the big energy down, Benjamin Moore’s Conch Shell is a perfect neutral when matched with intense shades. This dusty hue brings to mind thoughts of sunsets captured by a vintage film camera. Conch Shell may bring a blush to your space, but this hue is not shy, per the paint manufacturer.
Similar shades and serene mood show up in our Fascinating View of Venice Grand Canal Italy mosaic art. It’s a wonderful piece to add depth and interest to a windowless wall.
The soft terracotta tones of our Crimson Grapes 3D Mosaic Fruit art would mesh beautifully with the dusty shades of Conch Shell. The unique 3-dimensional look of this mosaic makes it a perfect accent.
