Color of the Month: Hot and Spicy

by Quinn Larson

December is the time to celebrate the season with family and friends, sharing favorite foods, warm spiced drinks and a generous serving of holiday cheer. A spirited red from our 2017 Trend palette, Hot and Spicy T17-18, evokes an excited, joyful energy that enlivens any environment, making it the perfect choice for our Color of the Month.

Create a bold statement for guests the moment they walk through the door by greeting them with a Hot and Spicy hallway.  Bring balance to the space with a few achromatic accents, such as a white console table and chairs, and a black-framed art piece.

Incorporate this spicy, orange-touched, red into any room to bring in a warm, inviting energy. This color works wonders on kitchen walls, enhancing the appetite and making the room feel even more cozy. Hot and Spicy pairs well with natural elements such as light wood furnishings and stone flooring.

On dining room walls, this chili-pepper red hue primes the mind for interaction and conversation, making it the perfect color selection for those who entertain frequently. If painting the entire room may seem a bit much, consider Hot and Spicy for an accent wall.  Decorate the rest of the space with a few gold accent pieces such as vases or flowers. Create a striking contrast to the golds and reds in the room with a few chocolate patterned throw pillows on the sofa.

Hot and Spicy accents warm a cool-colored room much the same way a few chili peppers spice up a bland meal. Incorporate red colored decor to jazz up a space decked out in dark, cool tones, such as this living room with dark blue walls. Sprinkle Hot and Spicy sparingly throughout the room in the form of throw pillows, an accent color on a patterned area rug, or as a feature furniture piece.
