“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.
I love this nuanced color.
I have decided to use Benjamin Moore’s Color selection for 2019 Metropolitan for our Classic Style Reward Giveaway Wall Panel. The popularity of this Decorator Supply iconic broiserie wall panel on Pinterest birthed the Giveaway. The wall panel finish looks like an aged Metropolitan. As previously outlined Decorators Supply has created the panel as a stand alone piece of wall decor. I will publish the finished panel and Giveaway Instructions January 15th.

“Right now, I am loving deep, rich jewel tones with an edge. Bold indigo, hunter and emerald green, and dark teal all feel ready to have a moment outside of the kitchen. We’re layering living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms with paints, fabrics, accessories, and rugs in these colors to create drama against a backdrop of white architectural elements.” — Jeff Andrews of Jeff Andrews Design

Black and White – remains a classic combination. As in fashion, this high-contrast combination creates drama in any space. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn transformed this contractor-grade bathroom into an elegant, classic space with white subway tile walls, black porcelain tile floors and an aged iron chandelier.
“Blush is the new neutral. It pairs with greys and naturals for a calming palette. It can be combined with bold colors like navy, forest green, or citrine, and it allows the bold color to be the hero.” — Rob Royer, CEO of Interior Define
Beautiful combination with Metropolitan.

“We expect the Art Deco influence to become more prominent in the coming year, inspiring both textile design and furniture silhouettes. From a color perspective, pink continues to be very strong in furniture. Given that, we expect colors that complement the blush hue to do very well—specifically, olive green, oxblood, and navy.”

In: Mixed Metal Accents
“An ensemble of metal accents (no more than a mix of two to three different metal accents) used throughout a room is in, and will always be a timeless and tasteful way to create balance and definition in an environment. For example, brass, gold or nickel accents mix well with either oil-rubbed bronze or aged iron accents. Metals like silver and pewter can mix well with bronze and black brown metals. It’s all about moderation and context.” — Keita Turner of Keita Turner Design
“The spa-inspired bathroom trend has officially returned–back to the spa, that is. These days it’s all about bold, dark, sultry bathroom designs that evoke an indulgent high-end experience.” — Kesha Franklin of Halden Interiors

In shades of birch, beachy white and light oak, these floors reflect more light, and can transition from casual to luxurious, without sacrificing comfort.”— Kesha Franklin of Halden Interiors
