Muy Caliente

Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year brings the heat.

Red is controversial. Ask most interior designers, and they will caution bringing this passionate color into your abode. But in a world of white and neutrals, we’re ready for a bold dose of color.

According to Ellen O’Neill of Benjamin Moore & Co., “Caliente is the signature color of a modern architectural masterpiece; a lush carpet rolled out for a grand arrival; the assured backdrop for a book-lined library; a powerful first impression on a glossy front door. The eye can’t help but follow its bold strokes. Harness the vitality.”

If you’re still uncertain about how to bring this spicy color into your home, here are a few complementary colors to consider bringing along. You can find all of these colors at Benjamin Moore Catalina Paints in Redondo Beach,
