In a bold choice for the new year, 2018’s Benjamin Moore Color of the Year does not mince words: It’s strong, radiant, and full of energy. Caliente (AF-290) is a spicy, gorgeous shade of red that immediately catches the eye and is interpreted to represent aspects of change, strength, drama, happiness, intelligence, confidence, and desire. Despite its intensity, the color is still applicable throughout the home to energize kitchens, revitalize living rooms, and warm up bedrooms.

Windows and Walls in Benjamin Moore's

With such a bold choice, the color experts at Benjamin Moore have declared that it’s time for us all to embrace a little more passion in our lives and homes. Who can argue with that?

How to Add a Touch of Caliente to Your Home

There are dozens of ways you can incorporate Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Color of the Year into your home throughout the coming months. Take a look at just a few of the ways you can use window treatments, wallpaper, and more to create a spicier interior design:

  • Add bright, Caliente red curtains to windows in a light-colored neutral room, paired with light sheers for a balanced look.
  • Opt for a warm, all-over red wallpaper with an elegant, classy design to uphold Caliente’s aesthetic of confidence and strength.
  • If you don’t want a lot of bold color in a room, select a wallpaper with just a few splashes of the bright red here and there to create a bit of drama.
  • Coordinate a Caliente accent wall with red décor accents throughout the room (add contrasting white décor against the accent wall for an even stronger flavor).
  • Go half-and-half with Caliente paint and coordinating wallpaper for a classic split look, or add a bright red wallpaper border to an existing room for easy flair.
  • Give old, exhausted wood blinds a facelift with a few coats of Caliente paint for a refreshed, modern look.
