Color of the Year 2019

Color of the Year 2019

Opening our feed from Architectural Digest today, there was a cool take on the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2019. Immediately we saw this color to be a marked return to serene as opposed to  the color of the year selections from last year. So let’s chat about ”Metropolition”, from Benjamin Moore, as shown above from BM.

Ellen O’Neill, of the renowned paint manufacturer, was interviewed by Architectural Digest and said that the mood of global society had a great deal to do with this soft, neutral, color selection when she said: “I don’t know about any of you, but I need quietude. I need a pause. I need earplugs. I don’t even know what was going on at the time, but it was just like, stop the aggression, the crescendo of voices, the cacophony of tweets and breaking news. It’s so invasive. I said, I know this is totally uncharacteristic of me personally, but I have a feeling that we should look in this [neutral] spectrum of colors.”

Appraising the functionality of “Metropolitan”, you are quick to notice that it is highly suitable as a classic background color value.  In that same appraisal,  you may observe  hints of green that can be drawn out with other paired colors. In terms of coordinating colors, Architectural Digest offered us this: “Deep greens can dramatize the soft-spoken paint; while pale pinks and sages can layer in, to diaphanous effect.”

Where  is Country Floors in all this? Since 1964 we have been a part of a select  group of tile and stone vendors that have pursued the higher  calling of “style-setting.” Inherent in that approach, is the ability to suggest ceramic tile, glass and stone colors that play nicely with color values such as “Metropolitan.” Try is out and you will see!
