Color Crush: Metropolitan

We all know about the Pantone Color of the Year, but did you know about the other color’s of the year? Benjamin Moore announced theirs earlier this year and it is right up my alley!

Calm, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year 2019, Metropolitan AF-690, exudes glamour, beauty and balance.

“Metropolitan AF-690 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.”

—Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore & Co.
