Happy New Year to all our readers!
2023 Is a very special year for our company, The Corsi Group, makers of Greenfield Cabinetry. We’re celebrating our 50th year in business. Since 1973, we’ve been devoted to our small business partners and enjoy delivering new products that are on-trend and a great fit for their clients. We did a survey of design trends for the New Year, and are sharing a sampling of what’s out there – we hope you find them as inspirational as we do, and who knows, we may see some of these trends emerge as inspiration for our new products in 2023!
Cheers to 50 years!

Benjamin Moore: Raspberry Blush

“Bright and cheery, Benjamin Moore’s pick for 2023 color of the year is a vibrant red-orange called Raspberry Blush. The saturated shade energizes a room for a lively look that’s anything but timid.”
Dunn-Edwards: Terra Rosa

“Terra Rosa by Dunn-Edwards blends brown and burgundy for a rosy pink that works as both a grounding neutral and a delicate accent.”
Pantone: Vivid Magenta

“Pantone selected Viva Magenta 18-1750, a bold pinkish red, as its 2023 color of the year, calling it “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time.” But this isn’t your Barbie pink.”
Sherwin Williams: Redend Point

“A blend of blush and beige, Redend Point by Sherwin-Williams features subtle pink undertones to warm up walls. The grounding shade feels especially on trend as homeowners turn toward earth tones to bring comfort and joy to their interior spaces.”
We think these 2023 colors of the year are all very happy, enthusiastic choices for sure. Are they appropriate for cabinets themselves? Perhaps, but more likely these colors will serve as inspiration for wall/tile colors, and influence complementary cabinet color choices this year.
(OK, we don’t really have a Greenfield kitchen that completely fits the ‘kitschy’ category, but some may feel this is a bit kitsch.

“There’s always a new kitchen trend ready to make its mark, but have you ever considered playing into a theme that ties it all together? The kitchen is the ideal space to really lean into kitsch because it’s a hub for creativity—and having a sense of humor feeds the soul. The heart of the home shouldn’t be so sterile.”
Quieter Interiors with a Subtle Touch of Intensity

“Before you get worked up, maximalism isn’t going anywhere—we’re just toning down the noise in favor of softer aesthetics that exclaim ‘Serenity now!’”
Authorized Corsi Group designer, Courtney Wilson of Captiva Design Build in Ft. Myers, Florida adds, “I think this is the new balance; with white shaker dominating most of our designs these days, I find that it falls on us the designers to bring a subtle element in that won’t overhaul the ‘clean’ white shaker lines/design. Whether it’s adding a different species/texture, or a splash of accent color to an island, or changing the flanking stove surround with a contrasting color to the countertop/backsplash, it gives us a chance to work in another texture/design element that makes it unique and allows us to add a little signature in the background that can still be seen in the forefront.”
Welcome to the (Modern) Farmhouse

“Whatever feelings you have about #cottagecore, there’s no denying the appeal of the modern farmhouse. Instead of fantasizing about a country chic lifestyle that you might never have, why not be more intentional about how you’re bringing those rustic elements into your space and make the aesthetic your own?”
