With September fast approaching, tastemakers are already over 2018 and looking toward next year. To kick things off, Behr just unveiled its Color of the Year for 2019, and you're about to see it everywhere. It's called Blueprint, and it's a deep, rich shade of blue described as "warmer than denim and softer than navy," in a press release.
If you're looking to give your home a refresh in time for 2019, consider introducing this bold color or a similar dark blue hue into your home or even on its exterior. Evocative of "authenticity, confidence, and timelessness," according to the press release, it's a color that makes a statement while feeling warm and inviting. "This universally appealing hue provides a steady stream of positivity and is poised to be an instant classic for years to come," says Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr.
Along with its Color of the Year, Behr also revealed four accompanying 2019 trending color palettes to help décor savvy individuals bring the look to life in their homes. These include Color Binge, a range of blue, teal, and gray shades; Inspired Curation, a series of jewel tones like mauve, dark green, and gold; Down to Earth, comprised of taupe and terracotta hues; and Soft Focus, featuring powder blues, blush peaches, and lilacs primed to be the "new neutrals."
