Calm, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year 2019, Metropolitan AF-690, exudes glamour, beauty and balance.
“Comforting, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Metropolitan AF-690 exudes beauty and balance,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. “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.”
“Metropolitan AF-690 emanates nuance, harmony and extravagant ease. Always adaptable, it softens to matte or shimmers with sheen. It’s neutral. It’s understated. It just is. This is color, off-duty.”
And Benjamin Moore didn’t stop with the introduction of Metropolitan. The brand has also released its Color Trends 2019, a palette of hues, ranging from neutrals to rich blues and greens, that all complement Metropolitan.
Whether you choose to go bold in an entryway by pairing Metropolitan with navy or use the gray shade with a mix of other neutrals in a living room, the curated palette is sure to spark paint ideas.
