Calm, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year 2019, Metropolitan AF-690, is a stylish grey with cool undertones. It exudes glamour, beauty and balance.
“Metropolitan AF-690 emanates nuance, harmony and extravagant ease. Always adaptable, it softens to matte or shimmers with sheen. It’s neutral. It’s composed. It just is. This is colour, off-duty,” said 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 colour leader 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.
Emphasizing the calming role grey plays in society, the Colour Trends 2019 colour card (available in-store) 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.
