Sound the Palettes...Benjamin Moore Color of 2019 IS....

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

. You depend us on every year to tell you the "Colors of the Year" chosen by authoritative industry sources.....We do not disappoint...sooooo from Benjamin Moore in the new year,....the choice is the shade they call Metropolitan AF-690.  We applaud this cool choice of neutral, so "not beige"....(those were the days !) . It is being called "effortlessly sophisticated and soft." We easily "cuddles up" to a variety of accent colors that can be used on walls, floors, furniture, pillows and other accessories. 

    Every year, major paint manufacturers and of course, Pantone, the "original" reference to all things color select their choices for color of the year and we report on each of them.  Stay tuned to this blog for the next color choice. The hues are rarely similar and you are bound to find one that you will find to be your own version of "eye candy."

    This has been a decor post brought to you by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates, EXP Realty honored to be serving southeasternWisconsin in all things real estate.

Nice color, pretty much a continutation of the greys we've been seeing for a few years now. One day, beige will be back... everything cycles!

I am in awe of the words "effortlessly soft".  These words sound good, but what the heck does it mean?  We are not grey or beige fans.  I prefer neutrals that have a hint of warm colors as part of their color profile.  A
