Red hot! Benjamin Moore has named ‘Caliente’ its Colour of the Year 2018


Warm and inviting, with a spicy and seductive undertone, Benjamin Moore has dubbed Caliente AF-290 its official Colour of the Year 2018. The leading North American paint brand announced the news in conjunction with the launch of 22 new warm and wonderful hues.

The choice of Caliente followed a year-long research journey taken by the Benjamin Moore Colour and Design team, studying the current and emerging trends in the art, design, architecture, pop culture, fashion and home furnishings sectors.

If you’re inspired by Benjamin Moore’s newest colour sensation, why not spice up your kitchen with these red-hot picks…

The Calvos-FS kitchen from Leicht balances traditional beauty with contemporary confidence; boasting in-frame doors in a Bordeaux red.

Corian’s renowned solid surface material is available in a Hot red hue. The perfect choice for a colourful countertop, the Hot red Corian will work well in contrast with neutral cabinetry, or even work it in a colour-block clash with other dramatic hues.

Aga Living’s Masterchef XL 110 induction range cooker is available in a Cranberry red, and, placed centre stage in the kitchen, will make a definite visual statement.

British Ceramic Tile’s Rouge gloss wall tile, from the company’s Brights collection, will give you the flexibility to create a subtle splashback or clad an entire wall in the dramatic colour.
