“Sleek, sophisticated, soft gray with cool undertones” describes Metropolitan (AF-690), Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year 2019 and wants to become your new neutral according to House Beautiful.
Applied as an accent to this striking kitchen designed by Mark Lee & Ed the beams and shelving have a calming effect on the overall feel of the space adding a graceful sophistication to this task oriented room.
Specifically, “it’s a color in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design. Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous gray creates a soothing, impactful common ground” according to Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore’s Director of Strategic Design Intelligence.
Metropolitan adds an air of sophistication to any room with its soft gray undertones by showing off decorative elements.
A soothing backdrop for your master bedroom, Metropolitan is here to “prove that neutrals can be totally sexy,” according to House Beautiful.

LOVE the counter stools….Where can I get them at bar height?
Hello Michelle, thanks for reaching out! The bar stools in this image is credited to “Live, Learn, Nona” from a kitchen posted in Architectural Digest. The source of the barstools was not mentioned; my apologies and I hope that you are able to find a similar look! All the best, Loretta
