Colour Your World! Hues for your Home!


The Benjamin Moore Design team annually forecasts colour trends and their selection for 2018 is ‘Caliente’, a warm, enveloping hue that is also a charismatic shade of red. It is a pleasing, passionate colour with a spirited personality whether used on one or four walls.

If you are planning on selling or updating your home, you may want to check out the latest colour trends. To complement ‘Caliente’, the 135 year old paint company unveiled a curated palette of 23 influential hues that will add depth and energy to any room. It offers a full spectrum of reds, from hints of blush to deeper tones, while ensuring seamless pairings with neutrals and bolder colours.

Caliente has been described as the “signature colour of a modern architectural masterpiece; a lush carpet rolled out for a grand arrival; the assured backdrop for a book-lined library and a powerful first impression on a glossy front door.” This colour can warm up weathered woods, accent the crisp geometry of a modern home and add a jolt of drama to small and large spaces alike.

Chatelaine magazine recently published an article on the hottest décor trends for 2018. Bold colours, Herringbone hardwood floors, vibrant accessories and light fixtures that double as wall or ceiling art all made the coveted hot list!

In 2018, enliven your home with the trending colours!
