I can sometimes feel uneasy when writing about colour – other than grey! – possibly because the list of colours that I wouldn’t personally use at home is considerably longer than the list of hues I would. Anything pink, blue (except navy), red… indeed anything bright, if I’m being honest. Other than a really rich orange, which is my exception to the rule. I gravitate towards texture rather than colour.
But it’s good to be challenged on this when you come across an interior where colour has been used really well. Take this midcentury home that showcases Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Colour of the Year, Caliente, a vibrant red that’s been described by Benjamin Moore’s Director of Strategic Design Intelligence Ellen O’Neill as “strong, radiant and full of energy.”
