Color of the Year Picks | Metropolitan

Welcome to the first chapter of Design Trends For 2019. Pantone’s winning color for 2019 is trending in every home and fashion magazine. But I’m not focusing in on this winning color, Living Coral. Although, this color can enliven and energize any space, it wouldn’t be a first choice for let’s say, painting walls. So, I’d like to introduce a complimentary color that will create a relaxed and calm backdrop to any room with vibrant accents. As an Interior Designer, paint color is very important and my paint vendor of choice is Benjamin Moore. They get it right every time with their range of paint collections, finishes and mastery in color depth technology. BM’s Color Trends of the Year has been widely accepted across the design industry, which brings us to the 2019 report, announcing AF-690 Metropolitan as the color of the year.

Calm, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year 2019, Metropolitan AF-690, exudes glamour, beauty and balance.
