Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2018

The color choices can at times seem infinite and - let's face it - overwhelming. Maybe you want to do something bold and daring, but don't want it to be too much.  Maybe you want something timeless and chic but not boring.  Where do you even begin?

Well, sometimes just simply learning how to use color differently is a great place to start. You can achieve that bold pop of color without committing to painting your entire living room in it. Maybe that means an accent wall, maybe that means just some new throw pillows - but whatever it means for you, you first need to start with inspiration.

Our friends at Benjamin Moore put together this awesome (and short!) video about how they selected their 2018 Color of the Year - Caliente AF-290.


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. The eye can’t help but follow its bold strokes. Harness the vitality.
