Benjamin Moore just announced their pick for 2019’s Color of the Year, and it’s Metropolitan (AF-690), aka “a stylish gray with cool undertones, metropolitan reflects the modern sophistication of 21st century design.”
Sure, it’s not the most exciting color (#TBT to red-hot Caliente from 2018), but there’s something so calming, comforting and sophisticated about a cool gray that works well in any room in the house.
“It’s a color in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore’s director of strategic design intelligence, in a company statement. “Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous gray creates a soothing, impactful common ground.”
We never thought we’d say this, but we’re so excited about going gray.
