The dreary colors of winter have been surrounding us for the past few months; Gray skies and falling snow may have you craving something bright, vibrant, warm and maybe even…spicy. Enter Benjamin Moore’s 2018 color of the year, Caliente AF-290. The color of a deep summer sunset, an overripe watermelon, a classic car cruising with the top down, Caliente AF-209 is an exuberant burst of color that can bring life to any space. The past few years have shown a trend of cooler colors- In 2016 Benjamin Moore named their color of the year as “Simply White” and in 2017 the choice was “Shadow”, a deep purple color. This year, in a stark contrast, Caliente AF-290 is bringing a heartbeat back to home decor. From the perfect, eye-catching accent wall color to a front door that makes a statement, the application options are endless. This stunning color of the year has an even more beautiful complimentary palette, with shades such as “Stone”, “Smoked Oyster”, “Moonshine” and “Cherry Wine”. See the color palette below, as well as more info on Caliente AF-290.
