Colour of the Year

Benjamin Moore has announced its Colour of the Year 2019 – Metropolitan AF-690, a stylish grey with cool undertones.

“Comforting, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Metropolitan AF-690 exudes beauty and balance,” says Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore director of strategic design intelligence. “It’s a colour in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design. Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous grey creates a soothing, impactful common ground.”

The company also unveiled its Colour Trends 2019, a corresponding palette of 15 harmonious hues that further amplify the cultured grace of Metropolitan AF-690. Ranging from ethereal neutrals to frothy pinks to rich blues and greens, the Benjamin Moore Colour Trends 2019 palette features:

  • Putnam Ivory HC-39
  • Balboa Mist OC-27
  • Kendall Charcoal HC-166
  • Smoke 2122-40
  • Black Pepper 2130-40
  • Soft Fern 2144-40
  • Cloud White OC-130
  • Beau Green 2054-20

  • Decorator’s White OC-149
  • Pashmina AF-100
  • Hunter Green 2041-10

Emphasizing the calming role grey plays in society, the Colour Trends 2019 colour card illustrates how to capture the coveted feeling of restorative quietude in any setting. Elements include the blending of heathered greys and soft linens to create an enveloping haze in a living room; utilizing reflective metallic accents and easygoing neutrals to add a comforting factor to a sleek kitchen; and creating a dose of modest allure to an elegant entryway by coating the walls, doors and trim in a bold navy blue.

The richness and nuance demonstrated through the Colour of the Year and Colour Trends 2019 palette can be achieved only with Benjamin Moore products.
