As another year approaches, reflection on the one we just had is unavoidable. Was it everything you hoped it would be? But, after a bit of looking back at 2022, looking forward to 2023 comes next. The past is behind us and the future is looking bright—or at least we want it to! Here are colors to manifest a prosperous year ahead.

Note: All the colors below are part of the Boysen Color Palette fan deck. They are available for mixing at Boysen Mix and Match stations (list of locations here). Remember to take a look at the swatch of your chosen color in person before having it mixed.

Prosperity | BCP-0107

Boysen Colors for Manifesting a Prosperous Year Ahead | MyBoysen

As we’re hoping for a prosperous year ahead, of course, the paint color Prosperous has to be included in this list. To prosper is to thrive financially or succeed in material terms. And who wouldn’t want that for themselves, right?

But, to prosper also means to grow or flourish—and this can be applied to many other areas of life not just to wealth. You may wish for prosperity when it comes to your career or in developing more meaningful relationships. Wherever you need it, we wish you prosperity with this rich mauve hue.

Indulgence | BCP-0483

Boysen Colors for Manifesting a Prosperous Year Ahead | MyBoysen

Indulgence may have a negative connotation to it as it’s usually used in the context of things that may not be good for us. We indulge in sweets or junk food, for example. But maybe this year we can indulge in things that are good for us as well. Indulge in making time for yourself when you’re burnt out or in ridding your life of unnecessary stressors. Sounds good, right?

Scene Stealer | BCP-0833

Boysen Colors for Manifesting a Prosperous Year Ahead | MyBoysen

Maybe it’s time to stop shying away from the limelight this year. You deserve the attention! Reflect on your self-growth. With how far you’ve come and all you’ve accomplished, there’s reason to be proud.

Scene Stealer is a beautiful mellow yellow. It has a subtle but still noticeable glow to it—enough to uplift and brighten up a whole room. May Scene Stealer help you find the confidence to face whatever 2023 brings.

I Love to Boogie | BCP-0956

Boysen Colors for Manifesting a Prosperous Year Ahead | MyBoysen

There are many things in life to be sad about. It feels like every day one more thing comes into view that’s reason enough to just stay in bed for a good long while. With that said, there is still a great long list of reasons to celebrate life and being alive too.

The human brain is wired on what’s termed in psychology as a “negative bias.” We have a tendency to focus more on the negative than the positive—it’s just how it is. Now that you know about it though, maybe it can help get you up and out of bed on gloomy days. Add in a dash of I Love to Boogie for some sunshine.

Endless Possibilities | BCP-1081

Boysen Colors for Manifesting a Prosperous Year Ahead | MyBoysen

Endless Possibilities is a striking red color. I find its color name apt as red is a primary color and a starting point to achieving a whole spectrum of hues. The possibilities are, indeed, endless.

We carry our past with us but the future is still unwritten. Who knows, there may be wondrous things around the corner and 2023 might just be your year. Let Endless Possibilities be a reminder that you have what you need to set things in motion and make things happen.

Cheers to the new year!
