9. The Red Color of the TWA Hotel was the Benjamin Moore Paint Color of the Year Last Year
When restoration was commencing in the first phase, the Beyer Blinder Belle team were able to get samples of the carpet that had been covered quite early on and had therefore not degraded, as the color red often does because of its instability. This is one way the team was able to match the original red color. Says Southwick, Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Color of the Year was “Caliente Red” the exact shade of the red from the TWA Hotel.
You can find this fabulous red color all over the hotel – the carpets, in the tubes, the furniture, signage, luggage tags and more.
