Take one look at the 2019 Colors of the Year and you should know that anything goes!

 
The calming blues and greens selected by Behr, Kelly-Moore, Cloverdale, Diamond Vogel, Dutch Boy, and Glidden/PPG range from gently saturated to intense, but are tried and true. 
 
Benjamin Moore stands firm with a soft gray - an industry standard and the choice of most new construction and homeowners planning to update with paint. 
 
Pantone gives us a rich coral seen all spring and summer in fashions and fabrics. 
 
Akzonoble, maker of Dulux Paint, choose Spiced Honey - a medium-golden neutral shade safe to use just about anywhere, and which makes me almost smell the spices and honey! 
 
Pratt & Lambert’s Earthen Trail is a version of the fleshy beige-pink that’s trying to make a big comeback from the 60s. Some dated properties still display this color in wall-to-wall carpeting and paint. Do you dare? 
 
Sherwin Williams’ dark Cavern Clay and Dunn Edwards’ darker Spice of Life are best in small doses, in rooms where there are a lot of windows and natural light.

Valspar’s 2019 selection of a dozen colors ranging from the tried-and-true neutral to pastels and jewel tones gives you a pallet to complement and contrast. 

In all things paint - remember that light has a great effect on the color you’ll see. Avoid mistakes by consulting a design professional before making your color selection.
