Blueprint S470-5 was named the color of the year by Behr. That is a great color mixture of blue and grey. It looks like we are not moving completely away from the grey palette of the previous years but slowly drifting towards more solid colors. Last year Benjamin Moore tried to break this grey line with solid red, naming Caliente AF-290 a color of 2018.

Blueprint creates a space where you can build your own reimagined life — where awareness of what we want to build for ourselves can transform into action, says Behr. According to the paint manufacturer, the new Blueprint color is "an honest, approachable color that conjures up the blueprints builders rely on to bring architectural designs to life".

The color could be found in many natural settings and definitely a good fit for any project. There are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to complementary colors. 

So we bought a can of Behr's paint of the year and painted some stuff with it. The paint is drying right now so come back a little later to check out the results.

Sherwin Williams also introduced the color of the year. For 2019 it is Cavern Clay SW 7701. 

Sherwin Williams says that Cavern Clay brings new life to any living space. "It’s right at home with natural furnishings, including exposed floors, wood furniture, leather upholstery and worldly textiles". And here are some colors that go with Cavern Clay. I'm finishing painting a bedroom with that color so you can see it in action.
