What a difference a year makes in the world of paint color! I’m loving Benjamin Moore 2019 Color of the Year Metropolitan AF-690 and their Color Trends palette selection. This year’s color choice is a soft neutral gray which is a stark contrast to last year’s pick of bold red Caliente. The neutral Metropolitan gray could be my new go to backdrop color with it’s complex mix of undertones that will coordinate well with greens, blues, blush, griege and so many other colors. It is a light to mid range toned color that seems to change with its surroundings. Gray continues to be a popular paint color going forward. Metropolitan gray is very versatile, and has harmonious, natural and serene, calming qualities. And in today’s society, we could all use more calm, right?
