Bringing depth and energy to a space, Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Colour of the Year and accompanying Colour Trends palette demonstrate how to bring a minimalist scheme to life.

Adorning the walls of a stunning mid-century modern home, the revitalising red tone that embodies Benjamin Moore’s colour of the year, Caliente, injects a confidence and playful feel into this pared back property. Complemented by a colourful yet neutral palette, the pure lines and crisp geometry of the contemporary interior are accentuated by the combination of uplifting shades.
Just a little bit of red can go a long way. Whether set against warm wood grains or statement exposed brick fireplaces, the way a red is paired with other colours and surroundings prevent the colour looking dated and instead ensure it looks energetic and modern. Incorporating a full spectrum of reds, from hints of blush to deep oxbloods, the 2018 palette offers beautiful colour pairings with a carefully curated range of colour neutrals, complementary bold hues and pale shades.
Underpinning all of the fantastic Benjamin Moore product lines is the proprietary Gennex® Waterborne colourant technology. All Benjamin Moore paints are custom mixed, giving customers access to an unrivalled palette of colours. Gennex® colourants fortify the paint to enhance colour durability for a long lasting and resilient finish.
