Caliente – Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Color of the Year
When it comes to color, Benjamin Moore® doesn’t mess around. A passionate team of color experts spends all year looking around the world for what is new, exciting, and bold. This year is a fiery and passionate addition to the color of the year family: 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.”
—Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore & Co.
Caliente is about making a statement, being bold, and drawing the eye. Its passionate look commands attention, but not in a way that would make it an eyesore. Instead, it manages to use the powerful, bold red to paint a canvas that not only compliments but enhances the proper palette when used with the full Color of the Year line. Check out the full palette:

Here’s what Benjamin Moore’s color experts have to say about this year’s Color Trends Palette:
“THE POWER of red revs up warm weathered woods and mistry ocean greys and greens of a seaside retreat.”
NOSTALGIA gives way to fresh, energetic hues and eye-catching silhouettes, a classic farmhouse gets a jolt of drama.
THE PURE LINES and crisp geometry of a modern home find their playful side in lighthearted reds and pinks that bring minimalism to life.
“RED ENLIVENS, bringing depth and energy to a space and spiking deep grays with life.”
