Spicy Red

Inspired by this lampshade from Anthropologie...

Comes my favorite color of the year—Habanero Pepper from Benjamin Moore (also known as Habanero Chile from Sherwin Williams). This spicy hue packs a lot of heat but has enough restraint that it's easy on the eyes.

I have such a crush on this color and am finding little excuses to use it all over the place—from reviving estate sale finds to painting the inside of closets, I can't seem to get enough. Just look how nicely it works as an accent!

These doors are amazing—Just a little bit goes a long way. 

It's funny, too. When I googled this color, I found the following description from Real Simple:

"Best Red for a Flea-Market Find?" Yeah...that sounds about right :)
