“Metropolitan” is New Color Trend

When someone says a color is “neutral” do you immediately think of a white or a nondescript beige? Neutral does not have to mean plain. Jay Adams of Blue Jay Paints & Blinds in Lake Zurich says Benjamin Moore’s color of the year is called Metropolitan AF-690.While many neutral colors wash out in bright light, Metropolitan is strong enough to maintain its presence even in well-lit rooms, but not so dark as to close in smaller spaces. Look for more on Metropolitan in the May issue of SW Lake Lifestyle.
