behr-livingroom-blueprint-1535033256

It’s official: 2019 is all about the color blue — Blueprint, to be exact — at least according to Behr. The paint company revealed Blueprint S740-5, a warm, soft hue, as the brand’s 2019 Color Of The Year, describing the shade as “a mid-tone blue that charts a course for people to reimagine the colors and design of their home.” The paint company says it’s meant to signify authenticity, confidence, and timelessness. As far as blues go, this one’s pretty stunning — it feels cozy and inviting, but not overpowering.

Erika Woelfel, Behr’s vice president of color and creative services, called the shade an “instant classic,” adding that, “Much like the sketches builders rely on to bring an architectural design to life, Blueprint S470-5 lays a foundation for consumers to make their unique vision a reality.” Continue Reading >>>
