Benjamin Moore today announced its highly anticipated Colour of the Year 2019 – Metropolitan AF-690, a stylish grey with cool undertones. The Benjamin Moore Colour of the Year 2019 was unveiled last night to leading interior designers, architects, painting contractors and influencers at an exclusive event held at The Grill & The Pool at the Seagram Building in New York.
"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 colour in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design. Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous grey creates a soothing, impactful common ground."
