With all of the noise and information we are faced with daily in our technological age, sometimes it’s nice to retreat to a place of calm and space. Enter Benjamin Moore’s 2019 Colour of the Year, the subtle and sophisticated Metropolitan AF-690.

Why Metropolitan AF-690?

Each year, Benjamin Moore’s Colour and Design Team travels the globe in search of inspiration for the next Colour of the Year. Ideas can be found everywhere, whether it’s through architecture, textiles or fashion. In 2019 the panel was taken by the quiet intensity of greys with Metropolitan AF-690.

While grey has been prominent in furnishings for quite some time, the hue has less commonly been used as a paint colour. If you want to bring calm, quiet, grace, beauty and glamour into your home, look no further than this understated yet confident tone.

Metropolitan AF-690 is adaptable to nearly any style and colour palette. The noticeable sophistication provides a more mature alternative to those who have become bored with traditional greys and other neutral colours. At once elegant and sophisticated, Metropolitan AF-690 is a bolder neutral that can help décor experts and novices alike make a beautiful statement.

The colour is best paired with Benjamin Moore’s Colour Trends 2019 palette of 15 hues which includes Benjamin Moore’s iconic Cloud White, Head Over Heels, a soft blush pink, as well as Hunter Green, and Kona, a rich coffee hue.
