As a fan of red myself, I’m always excited to see it getting a little attention. As Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore director of strategic design intelligence, noted in an interview with Architectural Digest, red has figured prominently in much of the last year. For inspiration, she cites the striking color palette of the Hulu original show The Handmaid’s Tale.
So get ahead of the trend and splash some hearty red across your kitchens, your wardrobe, your walls, even your meals. I’ve rounded up some of the most Caliente items our site has to offer to make the quest that much easier.
