Benjamin Moore’s color of the year 2018 is Caliente, a bold shade of red. The team of color experts at Benjamin Moore selected the color after extensive research and travel overseas, collecting items and inspiration from different places. Returning back to the studio, they collaborate to come to the final decision about the color.

Sharing findings each year with the design community helps to inspire people and bring them in a different color direction. In terms of what the color red signifies today, it’s an intriguing color that sparks different responses to it.  Red signals many keywords: confidence, desire, drama, strength.
