New Colors for 2019

Every year the major paint manufacturers present their custom colors predicting how home owners and fashionistas will be using color in the coming year. It may not always be the fad that takes off, but it is interesting and a place to look if freshening up your home with paint is on the agenda. Offering a wide range this year are the following “Color of the Year” choices with the manufacturer’s description.

Benjamin Moore: Metropolitan (AF-690) a cool gray emanates nuance, harmony and extravagant ease. Always adaptable, it softens to matte or shimmers with sheen. It's neutral. It's understated. It just is. This is color, “off-duty."

Sherwin Williams: Cavern Clay (SW 7701) warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots. Cavern Clay is a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together creates a desert modern aesthetic.

Pantone: Living Coral (Pantone 16-1546) is an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.

Behr: Blueprint (S 470-5) an honest, approachable color that conjures up the blueprints builders rely on to bring architectural designs to life. Blueprint creates a space where you can build your own re-imagined life, where awareness of what we want to build for ourselves can transform into action.
