Looking to add a little radiance and power to a space in your home? Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Color of the Year, Caliente (AF-290) will certainly do the trick! This vibrant red adds energy and commands attention.

“Caliente is the signature color of a modern architectural masterpiece; a lush carpet rolled out for a grand arrival; the assured backdrop for a book-lined library; a powerful first impression on a glossy front door,” explained Ellen O’Neill of Benjamin Moore & Co. “The eye can’t help but follow its bold strokes. Harness the vitality.”

Adding a powerful color like Caliente to any space requires a careful balancing act. Airy white trim and flooring allows the red to shine while preventing it from seeming to take over the space. Choosing accessories in warm, natural materials and muted tones will allow the confident Caliente to work its magic in your space.
