According to Benjamin Moore, the future is looking refreshingly neutral, unveiling “Metropolitan AF-690"—a subdued dove gray—as its 2019 Color of the Year.
Benjamin Moore’s creative director Ellen O’Neill described the shade as “color, off duty.”
“It’s a color in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design,” she said in a statement. “Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous gray creates a soothing, impactful common ground.”
Industry insiders found the choice to be unexpected - more often than not, Color of the Year choices are bold, but not a tone most people would integrate into their spaces. The perfectly neutral gray of "Metropolitan," however, is right at home in any environment.
