We’re loving the 2019 Benjamin Moore Color of the Year! Metropolitan AF-690 is a stylish, neutral gray with cool undertones.

“Metropolitan AF-690 emanates nuance, harmony and extravagant ease.
Always adaptable, it softens to matte or shimmers with sheen.
It’s neutral. It’s understated. It just is.
This is color, off-duty.”
—Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore & Co.


On Trend

Metropolitan radiates beauty and glamor. It’s serene, soothing and effortlessly sophisticated.

Metropolitan AF-690 is supported by Color Trends 2019, a coordinating palette of 15 harmonious hues.
