|Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2019|
The day before Benjamin Moore released their 2019 Color of the Year, I pondered with excitement.
Funny, my wild guess was a neutral like Balboa Mist or Cumulus Cloud. With all the saturated color in the design world today, a neutral wall color is often optimal. Especially if you want to add lots of personality through wall art or wall decor.
I've been specifying mostly neutral wall paint colors for a while now. Neutrals act as a wonderful foil for color through art, furnishings, and accessories.
So I was thrilled when Benjamin Moore chose a gray for 2019 with Metropolitan.
(And Balboa Mist made the cut for the other fourteen 2019 trend colors!)
Metropolitan is a sophisticated gray. Leans towards green, but color is all about context and lighting. I've seen paint color do crazy, unexpected things, lol. Always test the color before committing.
What I love about Metropolitan is how it sets the stage for a visual performance. And how versatile it is.
Metropolitan has enough substance and integrity to hold its own in visual weight. Can add lots of white & black with pops of bright or bold colors for an edgy, modern vibe.
And Metropolitan is a gray that looks great with woods, and other neutrals for a classic and timeless style.
Or a rustic farmhouse look with tons of texture and contrast.
Yet Metropolitan is quiet enough to feel serene with lighter and softer palettes for a harmonious or spa-like ambiance.
With Metropolitan, if I may use the phrase, the world is your oyster.
