Color Trends 2018


Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year, Caliente AF-290, is strong, radiant and full of energy.

"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.
