Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Color of the Year

Each year Benjamin Moore, a leading paint brand, chooses one color that they think will trend in the next coming year.  Additionally they spotlight several other paint colors that they predict will be popular to use in homes and commercial spaces.

Benjamin Moore recently announced the 2018 Benjamin Moore Color of the Year is a paint color they coined ‘Caliente’.  To learn more about Caliente and why Benjamin Moore chose this color view the video below.


Here are 7 ideas of how to incorporate Caliente into your home in 2018.


1.  For me Caliente would be too overbearing on all four walls of a room.  But as an accent wall it could work well especially if the other walls were some form of white or off-white.


2.  I love how a red island looks in an all-white kitchen!

3.  Another idea is to paint one piece of furniture in a room Caliente.

4.  This beautiful room featured in House Beautiful has a lot of ideas.  You could use it on built-in cabinetry, on doors, and it pairs beautifully with medium and dark blues.

5.  For a bold, high contrast curb appeal you could use it on your home exterior paired with white trim and dark lighting.

6.  Another idea is to use Caliente on the back of your white open shelving to give them more of a pop.

7.  And of course you can bring in Caliente in even smaller doses with your decor accessories such as decorative pillow, rugs, lighting, and decor items.
