To celebrate the latest trending shade, the LiLi Tile Team shares our list of the top 8 tiles to match 2023’s Pantone Color of the Year. So get ready to add a splash of color to your home and your life! 


What is the 2023 Pantone Color of the Year? 

Drum roll, please! The 2023 Pantone Color of the Year is Viva Magenta. This year, Pantone invites us all to enter the “Magentaverse” and dive into this powerful hue inspired by vibrant flower blooms, cochineal dye, and magnificent desert sunsets. Viva Magenta is anything but muted and shy. Instead, this pulsating red is meant to spark joy, optimism, and celebration. At LiLi Tile, we believe in living a colorful and rich life, and we think Viva Magenta is the perfect shade to set the tone. 


Choose Your Viva Magenta Color Palette

When working with a bold color, it’s best to decide on your color palette early to ensure all of your shades work together. Here are three palette options to consider for Viva Magenta. 


Neutral But Make It Pop

Pantone recommends pairing the 2023 Color of the Year with soft neutrals to allow the shade to pop. Their color pairings include Viva Magenta alongside hues like Gray Sand, Gray Lilac, and Pale Khaki. As you can see, Viva Magenta’s impact can go a long way with just a few strong accents.    


Bejeweled Tones 

If you want to make your whole place shimmer, consider embracing a jewel-tone color palette. Pair Viva Magenta alongside other rich tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, and amethyst purple.  


Tropical Escape

Inspired by nature, Viva Magenta references the colors of bright tropical blooms. Create your own paradise retreat by pairing the color with deep greens, warm yellows, and seaside blues.  


8 Tiles to Match 2023’s Pantone Color of the Year

Whether you’re looking for tiles to coordinate with or bring in Viva Magenta to your home, LiLi Tile has you covered with 8 unique cement tile options. 


1. Solid Magenta Arabesque Tile

Our Arabesque 8001 cement tile pairs the enchanting silhouettes of Morocco with 2023’s trendiest reddish-purple hue. These solid magenta arabesque tiles create a bold accent, whether you’re tiling the floor or an accent wall. Add these tiles to update your bathroom, kitchen, or outdoor space. 


2. Retro Magenta Terrazzo Tile

If you’re looking to blend 2023’s Color of the Year with mid-century style, our Confetti 3 terrazzo tile is a groovy choice. This white tile features flecks of red aggregate in confetti-burst patterns that channel the spirit of celebration just like Viva Magenta! Bring the party home. 


3. Neutral Pattern with a Magenta Pop Tile

Pantone recommends pairing their bold Viva Magenta with neutrals, and our Stellina 6 cement tile does just that. These mini 6x6 tiles feature a neutral star pattern with bright magenta corners forming little diamonds. Add a pop of color to your backsplash, stair risers, or powder room. 



4. Muted Pink and Gray Tile 

If you’re not ready for a bold magenta, try a muted blush. Our Bali 5 cement tile features a tropical, resort-inspired pattern in blush, gray, and mahogany. This tile brings in the Viva Magenta spirit with a subtler take on the vibrant color. Plus, it looks great alongside bright magenta decor. 


5. Bold Complementary Emerald Tile

If you’re painting Viva Magenta on the walls, consider adding a complementary jewel tone to the floors. Our Solid Emerald Green cement tile is the perfect color to complete your jewel-box design. This tile is available in 8x8 square, 4x8 rectangle, and 2x8 baguette shapes, perfect for any room in your home. 


6. Nature-inspired Tile with a Magenta Accent 

Viva Magenta was inspired by bright floral blooms out in nature. So, why not incorporate the color with a nature-inspired tile pattern? Our Flora 6 cement tile pattern represents springtime blooms with a bright, energizing magenta pop. 


7. Hexagon Tile with a Muted Pink Flower 

If you’re looking for a more neutral take on magenta blossoms, our Fiori 7 hexagon cement tile features a light gray background dotted with sweet origami blooms with soft pink centers. Achieve a zen feel while still bringing the joyful spark of Viva Magenta to your space.  


8. Pastel Elongated Hex Tile  

Let your bright Viva Magenta furniture and decor stand out on top of a neutral-colored floor. You know us, though. Just because it’s neutral, doesn’t mean it can’t have some pattern! Our warm Tiffany 4 elongated hex tile features a chic jewel design in a muted green. This neutral color will perfectly complement any magenta accent.
