Instead of selecting one color, Dunn-Edwards creates four stunning color palettes that capture the color trends for 2023.

Look for innovative materials and organic shapes that blend the natural and artificial”, and Life in Poetry, which “is equivalent to a vacation that lasts all year long. It embraces a relaxed summertime lifestyle and cherishes imperfections, DIY, and bric-a-brac craftwork to create a cheerful, nostalgic retreat.”
