On Trend: Cool Gray for 2019

Benjamin Moore names its color of the year

Cool, calm, collected – that’s what’s on the horizon according to Benjamin Moore. It’s quite a change from last year’s fiery red, but Benjamin Moore says 2019 is all about cool gray – specifically Metropolitan AF-690.

“Metropolitan AF-690 emanates nuance, harmony and extravagant ease, explained Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore’s Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. “Always adaptable, it softens to matte or shimmers with sheen. It’s neutral. It’s understated. It just is. This is color, off-duty.”

This soothing neutral instantly adds an element of relaxation to a room, and allows a designer to build with bolder patterns elsewhere. It’s the perfect base to layer with deep or bright hues and elevate an interior.

In the spirit of this exciting color trend, we browsed our expansive selection of fabric, wallcovering and trim. Check out these perfect coordinates to jump start your next design project!
