We’re obsessed with Benjamin Moore’s just-unveiled Color of the Year 2019: Metropolitan AF-690. A stylish gray with cool undertones, Metropolitan AF-690is comforting, composed and effortlessly sophisticated. Let’s just say that if color was personified, it would be a laidback George Clooney sipping a signature tequila on a chaise lounge overlooking Lake Como. Sigh.
What we love most about Georg… uh, about the Color of the Year is that is exudes beauty and balance.
"It's a color in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design,” said Ellen O'Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. “Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous grey creates a soothing, impactful common ground."
Along with announcing Metropolitan AF-690 as the 2019 COTY, Benjamin Moore also rolled out its Color Trends 2019, a corresponding palette of 15 harmonious hues ranging from ethereal neutrals to frothy pinks, rich blues and greens that create the feeling of restorative quietude in any setting. An Ocean’s 11-like entourage, the Color Trends 2019 palette further amplify Metropolitan AF-690’s cultured grace.
Stay tuned as we explore all the ways the dapper Metropolitan AF-690 and the Color Trends 2019 colour card can be tailored for your home, capturing the coveted feeling of restorative quietude in any setting.

As it turns out, the powder room was where one went to refresh their powdered wig and nose or to make a quick retreat from boorish conversation (yawn!). Typically, the powder room was a water closet near the formal entertaining room, making it convenient for guests needing a moment to themselves.
