“Comforting, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Metropolitan AF-690 exudes beauty and balance,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. “It’s a color in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design. Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous gray creates a soothing, impactful common ground.”

The color leader also unveiled its Color Trends 2019, a corresponding palette of 15 harmonious hues that further amplify the cultured grace of Metropolitan AF-690. Ranging from ethereal neutrals to frothy pinks to rich blues and greens, the Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2019 palette features:

Putnam Ivory HC-39 Balboa Mist OC-27 Kendall Charcoal HC-166 Smoke 2122-40 Black Pepper 2130-40 Soft Fern 2144-40 Cloud White OC-130 Beau Green 2054-20 Metropolitan AF-690 Hale Navy HC-154 Head Over Heels AF-250 Kona AF-165 Decorator’s White OC-149 Pashmina AF-100 Hunter Green 2041-10

Emphasizing the calming role gray plays in society, the Color Trends 2019 color card illustrates how to capture the coveted feeling of restorative quietude in any setting. Elements include the blending of heathered grays and soft linens to create an enveloping haze in a living room; utilizing reflective metallic accents and easygoing neutrals to add a comforting factor to a sleek kitchen; and creating a dose of modest allure to an elegant entryway by coating the walls, doors and trim in a bold navy blue.
