Bold, red accessories are potent ingredients in this living room painted in Wolf Gray.

2018 interiors to be packed with personality and confidence

by Helen Shaw, Marketing Director Benjamin Moore UK

In October we announced our 2018 Colour of the Year, Caliente AF-290, reflecting a predicted shift to more confident and dramatic interiors in 2018.

Alongside our Colour of the Year 2018 sits a beautiful collection of 23 hues from the red family, from hints of blush to deep oxbloods, as well as a carefully curated range of bold complementary shades and cool neutrals that can all stand alone or come together in endless combinations.

Whether you're inspired to use one of the more vibrant shades to bring depth and energy to your space, or whether you're looking to incorporate this year's "on-trend" colours as accents to give a cheerful pop of colour, our 2018 Colour Trends palette is versatile enough to create statement spaces that are warm, enveloping and full of personality.

So this month we are featuring ideas for bedrooms, living spaces and bathrooms that bring our 2018 Colour Trends palette to life and will inspire you to inject strength, confidence and vitality into your scheme.
