2019 Paint Colors of the Year

Each year the makers of all paint brands will come up with Paint Colors of the year.  I have researched all of them and put together a list of them with pictures of them in use so you can see how that color looks in a home.

 Some of the paint brands also have paint color trends for the year that I am sharing with you as well.

I have paint on my mind right now.  I am getting ready to paint the interior of my home and have been thinking a lot about colors.  Which brought me to these paint colors of the year.

How to know which paint color to choose.

If you are interested in a new paint color and don’t know which one is right for you give Samplize a try. They will send you a 12×12 square of the paint color of your choice that sticks to the wall. When you are done it easily peels off. You can check out their website here.

Pantone – Living Coral

Pantone describes Living Coral as “an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone”.  Obviously, you can gather from the name that the color is based on the color coral but with a feeling of life and movement.

This is an amazing color that can add a major pop of color to your home.  I personally would use this color in accessories.  

It might be too much on the wall or an upholstered piece of furniture.  Something fun would be to use it in an accent piece of furniture, like a side table or buffet.

Behr – Blueprint S470-5

Blueprint is based on the color from architectural blueprints.  It is a beautiful blue-gray that is a little muted.  

I love this color and can’t wait to find somewhere in my home to use it.  I think this would look amazing on a piece of furniture, cabinets, or front door.

Behr paint is available at your local Home Depot.

PPG – Night Watch (PPG 1145-7)

Night Watch is all about bringing the calming color of nature into your home.

The exact color of green is dark and cool which makes it very calming.   I love using nature as color cues to decorate my home.

PPG has paint stores all over the country but it is also available at various local hardware stores.  You can go here to see where a store is located near you.

Dutch Boy – Garden Patch 326-5DB

Garden Patch is another green but not the dark moody green of Night Watch.  It’s more mossy, subtle and warmer.  

The goal of Garden Patch is to create a feeling of rejuvenation and calm to your home.

Dutch Boy can be purchased at Menards and other local stores.  Here is a link to find one in your area.

ACE (Clark and Kensington)- Pineapple Cream Granita

Pineapple Cream Granita reminds me of a beigey yellow color.  It’s a beige that pulls yellow.  I had a color similar to this in my second house.  

I think this would make an amazing pop of color for a door or piece of furniture.  Not to mention in pillows and accessories.

Clark and Kensington can be purchased at ACE Hardware stores.

Sherwin Williams – Cavern Clay

Cavern Clay is a warm terracotta color that is just stunning!  It really reminds me of the Southwest part of the United States, which is of course what they were going for.  

This color would pair great with leather furniture, dark hardwood floors, and lush greenery.

Sherwin Williams Cavern Clay paint color of the year 2019, a redish brown color.

Sherwin Williams has put together a color palette which pairs well with Cavern Clay.  Here it is.

Benjamin Moore – Metropolitan AF-690

Metropolitan is a cool gray which is funny because I think the trend has been really going towards the warm grays.  For example, the greige trend has been hot lately,  maybe they see that trend changing.

It is a beautiful color, you can use it anywhere!  I love this color for walls first because it creates a beautiful backdrop for your pops of color.

Benjamin Moore also has a paint color trends palette and shows some great options to pair Metropolitan with.

Dunn Edwards – Spice of Life

Spice of Life is a dark browned, fire brick red with orange undertones.  

This color reminds me a lot of Cavern Clay from Sherwin Williams but it’s a bit richer.  A little more red in it than Cavern Clay.  It’s a stunning color!

Unfortunately, Dunn Edwards stores are only available in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, and Utah.

Hi. I live at the beach and am painting my house. I want to make it look current and thought white trim would look good with SW Agreeable Gray but it is too washed out. What are your thoughts on SW blueprint with the agreeable gray?


Tuesday 22nd of October 2019

Gina I absolutely love Blueprint! It's no wonder that was their color of the year in 2019. I think that they would look amazing together. Since you already have the trim painted try putting a swatch of the blueprint next to it and see if you like it before committing to painting a whole wall or room. Oh how I wish I could live at the beach too! Enjoy!

Hi Wendy! I came across your site and fell in love with the Blueprint color for my front door. It looks amazing. I was wondering if you remembered where the front door mat came from. I love that combo.

Thank you!
