This week, in honor of Valentine’s day, we shared tips and ideas on how to decorate with Benjamin Moore’s reds. Benjamin Moore offers over 30 different shades of red, ranging from deep and muted burgundies (Country Redwood, HC-183) to bright and glorious barn reds (Neon Red, 2087-10). The color red is definitely at the top of Benjamin Moore’s list with Caliente (AF-290) being selected as the 2018 Benjamin Moore color of the year. The color displayed in the chip below is Benjamin Moore Neon Red (2087-10). Like most vibrant colors, this color will look gorgeous framing large windows, built-in bookshelves or behind frames and other wall accents. Try it for yourself!

Caliente (AF-290), 2018 color of the year
"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." Source
Curious about the process behind selecting one single color out of the 3500 colors in the Benjamin Moore portfolio? We did a little digging and here’s what we found.
First of all, the process of researching and identifying a color is a year long process. Benjamin Moore has a team of seven Color & Design experts who travel extensively and attend shows in dozens of countries to identify emerging color trends.
At the end of 2017, the committee selected Caliente because “Their collective findings demonstrated an emergence of red hues, embodying the change, strength, confidence and vitality that permeates cultural movements around the world.” Source

Muted colors appear darker because they contain black tint. While red is often used as an accent color and to make bold design statements, muted reds such as Cascabel Chile (CSP-445) can be used to convey elegance and tranquillity.
