Benjamin Moore goes with stylish gray for 2019 Color of the Year
Benjamin Moore has announced its highly anticipated Color of the Year 2019 – Metropolitan AF-690, a stylish gray with cool undertones. “Comforting, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Metropolitan AF-690 exudes beauty and balance,” said Ellen O’Neill, director of Strategic Design Intelligence in a press release. “It’s a color in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design. Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous gray creates a soothing, impactful common ground.” The company also unveiled its Color Trends 2019, a corresponding palette of 15 harmonious hues to Metropolitan AF-690, ranging from ethereal neutrals to frothy pinks and rich blues and greens.
