We Have A Winner… And It’s A Hot One

Recently, Design House Interiors asked for your help in choosing a new accent wall color.  We posted a vote on Facebook and Instagram with three very different colors and invited you to pick the one you liked best, with the winner to be featured in our showroom.  The colors presented were all part of the Benjamin Moore Candice Olsen palette, which is a beautifully curated palette of paint colors perfect for today’s modern interiors.

The Contenders

The three colors presented were a plumy gray (Tempest), a light fresh yellow-green (Mellowed Ivory) and a hot spicy red (Caliente). The vote was almost a tie, split down the middle between the tried and true gray of Tempest and warm spice of Caliente.

The Winner

In the end, the passion for red was clear and Caliente was our winner.  Most who voted just responded with the letter of their choice, however interestingly enough, those who voted for Caliente did so with all the passion you’d expect from a true fan of this rich tone.  So with a common rally cry of “GO BOLD,” we will do just that and paint our main focal wall this all-enveloping color.  We invite you to visit us and experience the warming power of Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Color of the Year, Caliente.


Make a statement with Red!  For an easy fix, add it to your existing blues and grays with pillows and throws, or try it on your front door for a seasonal refresh.  For the bravest, take inspiration from the photos below and go BIG, BOLD and BEAUTIFUL!
