Looking for a fresh neutral that will work well with your grays, beige and browns?:
No, it is not a greige or white.
Hello Ben Moore Metropolitan AF-690:
Does the name sound familiar? It was Ben Moore’s color of the year 2019!
Surprised? I was. When announced last year, I looked at it and thought it was pretty, but not a color I love. I think it is funny it took a year for me to really notice it. Metropolitan is a silvery gray that adapts to its surroundings:
With an LRV of 51.19 it is an almost perfect medium color. Not too dark or too light. A very restful and soothing color, don’t you agree?:
Look at how well the Metropolitan works with browns and pinky beige:
Looks great with the wood desk also. I would definitely give this color a try in a room with stained trim and also a try in the kitchen with oak cabinets. (And absolutely in a kitchen with white cabinets.) Pretty versatile color.
It appears to be a cool color, but is actually a green/yellow color hued color, If you would like to read even more interesting information on Metropolitan AF-690, read here :
Lori is a color genius!
Now that is almost time Benjamin Moore will be announcing the color of the year 2020, what do you think of last years winner, Metropolitan AF-690? I like it very much! Feels new and fresh and works well with all the natural elements in the room. Take a look and let me what you think.
Have a great weekend everyone!
