We’re obsessed with Benjamin Moore’s just-unveiled Color of the Year 2019: Metropolitan AF-690. A stylish gray with cool undertones, Metropolitan AF-690 is comforting, composed and effortlessly sophisticated. Let’s just say that if color was personified, it would be a laidback George Clooney sipping a signature tequila on a chaise lounge overlooking Lake Como. Sigh.
What we love most about Georg… uh, about the Color of the Year is that is exudes beauty and balance.
"It's a colour in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design,” said Ellen O'Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. “Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous grey creates a soothing, impactful common ground."
Along with announcing Metropolitan AF-690 as the 2019 COTY, Benjamin Moore also rolled out its Color Trends 2019, a corresponding palette of 15 harmonious hues ranging from ethereal neutrals to frothy pinks, rich blues and greens that create the feeling of restorative quietude in any setting. An Ocean’s 11-like entourage, the Color Trends 2019 palette further amplify Metropolitan AF-690’s cultured grace.
Stay tuned as we explore all the ways the dapper Metropolitan AF-690 and the Color Trends 2019 color card can be tailored for your home, capturing the coveted feeling of restorative quietude in any setting.
