It’s that fun time of the year where us paint color geeks look forward to the paint manufacturers announcing their annual “Colors of the Year”. Most of the manufacturers have announced their colors in the last couple of weeks and today I’m excited to share the 2019 Colors of the Year with you from Sherwin Williams, BEHR, Ace’s Clark + Kensington, PPG and Dutch Boy. Check out the 2018 Colors of the Year if you missed that last year.
BEHR’s 2019 Color of the Year is a gorgeous color called “Blueprint”!
Blueprint is that dark rich complex color that ironically, is a hue that I have seen starting to pop up in design and the perfect color pick for 2019. While I don’t think we’ll be seeing whole rooms painted in this color because it is so rich and dark but I bet we’ll see lots of accent walls, cabinetry and front doors graced with Blueprint!
Here are some gorgeous ways to incorporated a deep rich color like BEHR Blueprint:
I love BEHR Blueprint on cabinetry or a kitchen island surrounded by lighter hues.
Deep colors like Blueprint really wow when surrounded by lighter colors or white.
If you guys remember last year, BEHR also nailed their 2018 Color of the Year pick called “In the Moment“! This blue, green gray hue is one of the most popular colors right with consumers.
I cannot tell you guys just how obsessed I am with In the Moment! I have been recommending it quite a bit to clients this last year and everyone has LOVED it in their home! Just look at this dreamy color!
You know a “Color of the Year” pick is a great one when everyone is still talking about it a year later!
PPG’s 2019 Color of the Year is another beautiful dark rich complex color called “Night Watch”
Again, these dark rich deep colors are what the paint manufacturers not only forecasted for 2019 but colors that we are really starting to see glimpses of in design. I have no doubt that these statement colors will continue to grow in popularity in 2019 an accent walls, cabinetry, small bathrooms and door colors.

PPG Night Watch is also a color we are really seeing in home decor accents and in fashion. I pulled together a design board to show you all the ways to incorporate pops of this deep rich green (affiliate source links directly below image):
Dutch Boy Paints
Dutch Boy Paints picked a beautiful rich green called “Garden Patch” for their 2019 Color of the Year.

I think this is another great color pick! I love this happy shade of green. It’s so pretty for a front door or as shown above for a colorful kitchen!

Last year’s Dutch Boy color of the year was Sandstone Tint and I’m still loving this beautiful neutral hue and I have been seeing it used quite a bit lately with home bloggers and designers.
Ace Hardware Clark + Kensington
Ace Hardware did something very cool for their 2019 Color of the Year pick! They held a contest and let consumers mix colors and submit to a panel of 25 judges and “Pineapple Granita” was the winner!
I love this happy creamy shade of yellow! Mixed with white in this kitchen, this color is really stunning!

Yesterday, Sherwin Williams announced their 2019 Color of the Year pick and it’s a color called “Cavern Clay”.
Let me just say that I did NOT see this color coming at all… I just KNEW Sherwin Williams was going to pick a dark rich complex color because I have been so blown away how much I am starting to see these colors lately, especially on cabinetry and accent walls that I shared here. I was convinced that was the direction SW was going to go with their pick.
I’m not sure how I feel about this pick. What do you guys think? Here are some examples Sherwin Williams shared incorporating their 2019 color pick.

This is such an interesting color choice and I have to be honest, I am not a fan of any shade of orange at all. However, I do warm up to the color a tad the way they mixed and balanced it in the spaces above with white. I am SO curious to hear your thoughts on this choice! Would you use this color in your own home?
Benjamin Moore just announced their 2019 Color of the Year and it’s a beautiful warm gray called Metropolitan!
I’m really excited about this choice because the warmth in the gray shows how we are moving into warmth more and also, it reminds us that gray is the new black and not going anywhere. Gray has become a staple color because it’s so calm and balancing.
Although Benjamin Moore veered from the rest of the paint manufacturers with their color pick this year, I did want to share a stunning dark moody Benjamin Moore color that I am loving right now and seeing quite a bit; Benjamin Moore Trout Gray.
I am loving Benjamin Moore Trout Gray so much right now. If you want to see more examples of this deep rich stunning color, check out my Color Spotlight on Trout Gray Here.
Ok friends, I am so curious to hear your thoughts on these 2019 Color of the Year picks! I think I know what most of you will say and which color is your favorite but please tell me your thoughts and favorite in the comment section below. Of course, my favorite pick is BEHR Blueprint! I think this color is a more realistic color that we would use in our home and I also think it best embodies where consumers are heading in color in 2019.
If you missed my 2019 color forecast and trend recap from the paint manufacturers, there is a lot more color inspiration and details about where we are heading in color that I shared in that post here.
Thanks for stopping by today friends!
