2018 is coming to a close and many are already wondering what 2019 might bring. Of course, as homeowners we all want to know what the newest trends are going to be. The Jeff Brand Team is curious too, and we recently saw that the top paint companies have all made their predictions for the best 2019 paint colors. Ready to hear their thoughts? Read on –
Pantone: Living Coral
Pantone chose Pantone 16-1546, AKA Living Coral, as its choice for the 2019 Color of the Year. The color is warm and vibrant, but probably best used in moderation when decorating your home. If you choose to use Living Coral in your home, make it pop in an accent wall or with lots of neutrals surrounding it.
Benjamin Moore: Metropolitan
Benjamin Moore is staying on the gray train and predicts Metropolitan as its best 2019 paint color. If you like cooler greys – and many homeowners do – then this one has that going for it, plus it has the ability to shift colors between green, blue, and greige depending on the light. If you’re comfortable with a grey that adds dimension, this is a great choice.
Sherwin Williams: Cavern Clay
Cavern Clay by Sherwin Williams is an interesting choice, as it’s similar to the Pantone Color Living Coral, yet more brown. Think adobe Southwest meets modern desert design. It’s a tricky color for home design and one we’d recommend using only if you enjoy modern contemporary design and are using a palette of whites, soft greys, and blacks to balance the strong color as an accent.
Behr’s prediction for best 2019 paint color is Blueprint, a soft navy or chambray color that pairs well with greys and warm woods. It can add depth and warmth to offices, bedrooms, and dining rooms. Steer clear of strong blue walls in the kitchen.
Kelly-Moore: Peacock Blue
Also on the blue trend, Kelly-Moore chose a rich, dark blue called Peacock Blue. Lovely as an accent, it could replace blacks and dark greys throughout the home on accent walls and cabinets.
