Color of the Month | Benjamin Moore Red

Happy December! It has been a fantastic year and as it comes to a close, we’re featuring Benjamin Moore Red (2000-10) as our color of the month! This bright and bold color is perfect for the festive month of December and when used correctly in interiors, can last many years. The Benjamin Moore Red paint color is great for bringing spaces to life with a bold statement! Pair this with neutral colors to create a feature wall, use in home accessories, or use with other equally bold colors to completely diversify a space.

Pairs Well With…

Benjamin Moore Calypso Orange (2015-30) and North Sea (CC-932).

We love how this lively Red color pairs with other vibrant colors. However, if you’re after the ever-popular fresh and crisp interior, then pair Benjamin Moore Red with crisp white paint colors or creams to create a calm atmosphere.

If you’re seeking a rich interior, then use Benjamin Moore North Sea (CC-932) to create a warm scheme. The two paint colors work effortlessly together so use accessories to bring them together. This works well for living rooms, dining rooms, and even bedrooms. The combination of the Red paint color and Benjamin Moore Calypso Orange (2015-30) brings warmth and energy to any space! These are both fun colors to work into sophisticated kids’ bedrooms!

How to use this color in your home…

Benjamin Moore Red is perfect for either feature walls or bold allover wall paint. This vibrant color will serve well as a fun feature working great as a bright pop in accessories to lead your eye around the space. This color works well in both light and dark rooms – watch the color come to life in sunny rooms while a more intimate interior can be achieved in naturally darker rooms.

Alternatively, it’s really easy to incorporate Benjamin Moore Red into your interiors through accessories, curtains, and rugs. As the color is such a vibrant one, it is fantastic to use as the main focal color to otherwise neutral spaces. Supplement this with the “pairs well with” colors above!

Benjamin Moore Red is of course a classic Christmas and festive color for use throughout the winter months. (No wonder we’re featuring it in December…) It is a great color to blend into your interiors throughout the year – it’s a classic red that will never go out of style!
