Drum roll please. Benjamin Moore has surprised us again. Introducing Caliente AF-290, color of the year 2018.


Last year, Benjamin Moore shocked us when they broke away from the neutral color trend and picked “Shadow” a dark, amethyst hue. This year, many of the other paint giants have followed suit, choosing cool hues in blue and shades of black. But Caliente is a far cry from cool. The vibrant red with a hint of orange is sizzling!

“Strong, radiant and full of energy, Caliente AF-290 is total confidence. It is pleasing, passionate and makes people feel special, like ‘red carpet treatment’,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. “Whether used as one note or on four walls, the spirited personality of red turns heads signaling surprise and adventure. The eye can’t help but follow its bold strokes.”

Caliente is part of the Affinity Color Collection, known for having colors that are deeper and more complex than ‘everyday paint”. While the palette incorporates the full red spectrum (from Deep Poinsettia to Pleasant Pink), it also features a wide range of whites, neutrals and complementary bold yet cool tones, such as Stone, Wolf Gray and Black Beauty.
