viva magenta


Ready to incorporate a bit of the Magentaverse into your outdoor living spaces? Meet Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year, Viva Magenta. Every year, the color authority selects a theme and hue, and this bold and empowering red is “rooted in nature.” 

Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative. It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying and boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement. Viva Magenta welcomes anyone and everyone with the same verve for life and rebellious spirit. It is a color that is audacious, full of wit and inclusive of all. 

At Land of ELITE, we are designers by nature — quite literally. We go into every project, no matter the size, with a mind to unlock your home’s potential and transform it into a space that is beyond expectations. Accomplishing this means our team is tuned into trends across industries and creatively considering how to incorporate the latest, yet lasting, impressions in our landscape installations

Pantone’s Color of the Year can enhance your outdoor experience in a number of ways. Here are a few ideas we find inspiring. 

Rosy Up Containers 

Invite magenta-toned flowering plants into container plantings for a bright upgrade. Proven Winners’ Supertunia in Royal Magenta continuously rebloom and are pretty spillers or fillers in pots. Across the board, there is a wide selection of magenta blooming plants, such as peonies and roses. Another way we work on-trend colors into the landscape is with the containers themselves. 

Move Magenta into Seating Spaces

Just like inside the home, we can infuse hints of magenta into outdoor living areas with some of the same design elements used to update a look in the living or dining room. Throw pillows designed for exterior use can introduce the color without a commitment, for example. Outdoor rugs that include splashes of magenta provide that true outdoor room feeling and leverage Pantone’s Color of the Year.

Add Viva Magenta Annuals to the Landscape

Annuals are a great way to introduce fresh colors and textures into landscape beds, and you can always decide to change it up the next season. In landscape areas that will include annuals, we like to layer plantings in a couple of different ways. First, we will build tiers with low-lying plants at the bottom, mid-sized varieties in the center, and tall selections in the back. We also consider the texture and include different shapes of blooms and foliage. Bloom time is also important, so in beds that will incorporate annuals, we assure that there is a dynamic backdrop of perennials and/or shrubs that keep the bed interesting.

As for complementary colors to include in a landscape bed with Viva Magenta accents, consider greens, blues, earthy browns, and other pinks and reds. You can see how easily Viva Magenta works into any landscape color palette.
