Introducing JC Licht's December color of the month, Carriage Red CW-250! This rich, robust, red carries all of the warmth, magic, and elegance of the season! But who says red can't be enjoyed all year long?

Be As Bold As You Want To Be

This historical oxblood-toned red lets you be as bold as you want to be. Please don’t believe that you must tiptoe around it. Red attracts attention for a reason, and if you choose to use it in your decor, you’ll want to decorate as vibrant as the color itself. This Benjamin Moore paint color looks best in glamorous spaces, such as ones with ornate mirrors and large art pieces. 

Shake Up The Shades

Anyone who chooses red for a room is looking for excitement and intrigue, so shake things up a little by using various shades of the same tone. Using more than one shade of red will maintain visual interest and keep guests from getting bored or overstimulated by a single hue. Dark colors, likeCarriage Red CW-250 or other rich, deep shades of red, absorb light, bringing walls inward and making a room feel cozy and welcoming.

Spice Up Your Kitchen

Carriage Red CW-250 pairs well with gold accents and dark wood, making it an excellent choice for cabinets, islands, or walls in luxurious kitchens. Create a seamless transition to an adjacent dining room using Bruton White CW-710 on the trim in both rooms. Another popular color from the 18th century, Bruton White, features a touch of black to create a chalky white that perfectly contrasts Carriage Red.

Carriage Red For Rooms of All Sizes

Bold shades of red aren’t a good choice for smaller rooms, right? That’s not always the case. If you’re using a bright red, you may want to reserve it for larger rooms or as an accent color, but richer shades are ideal for rooms of all sizes. Lighten up the ambiance by painting the trim with Atrium White OC-145. This fresh shade of white has the slightest hint of pink that warms it up to make it an ideal complement to Carriage Red. 

First Impressions Matter

Homeowners in the 18th century embraced this shade of red because of its elegance and dramatic appeal. If going for an all-red exterior isn’t your style, consider painting your front door with Benjamin Moore Carriage Red. This Benjamin Moore paint color can provide striking contrast against a neutral background and elevate your home’s curb appeal. A satin or semi-gloss finish offers durable coverage that withstands daily wear and tear.Carriage Red CW-250also makes a great choice for hallways because it won’t show scuff marks as quickly as lighter colors.
