There is no denying that red has the strongest personality of any of the colours in the spectrum. Red signifies strength, power, danger and anger, yet it is also known as the colour of passion and love
 
In design and décor, red can be modern, rustic, contemporary or traditional – it has so much versatility. No matter the style, red is the first hue to turn to when you are looking for a jolt of drama!
“Strong, radiant, full of energy, Caliente is total confidence. It’s the signature colour of a modern architectural masterpiece; a lush carpet rolled out for a grand entrance; 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.” 
- Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Intelligence
>> Accent walls are a great way to bring dramatic colour to a space and define architectural details.
 
>> Don’t be afraid to go bold and paint red on all the walls! A dining room or eat-in kitchen is the perfect place for spicy Caliente.
 
>> Paired with natural, rustic stone and minimalist white furniture, Caliente brings warmth and a touch of whimsy to a modern space.
 
>> Painting the front door with a bold stroke of colour is a sure way to add curb appeal. But why not continue that same stroke of colour onto the inside of the door, too!?
 
>> Grey is still the most popular neutral, but try a deep, saturated grey as a backdrop to vibrant red accents in furnishings and accessories.
