2019 Top Paint Colors of the Year

Several of the largest paint companies have selected their choices for the top paint color of 2019. The selected shades tend to influence design in the coming year, from home design to clothing choices. Here are their selections:

Behr – Blueprint (S470-5)


Blueprint is a mid-tone blue described as “warmer than denim and softer than navy”. The color pairs perfectly with this year’s four unique trend palettes – a monochromatic option in various shades of blue; an earth tones palette that incorporates browns and clay tones; the pastel palette, comprised of soft grey, purple and sand; and a jewel tones grouping that features greens, golds and purples.

Sherwin-Williams – Cavern Clay (SW 7701 290-C6)

This warm terracotta shade is a “nod to mid-century modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest”. This sun-washed hue works perfectly with complementary materials that include leather, simple woodgrains and indigenous cacti in contemporary, sleek planters. Sherwin-Williams recommends pairing the color with other neutrals, such as warm gray or deep brown. Or, choose to go with a refreshed version of ‘70s earth tones by incorporating the color with a “dusty, denim blue” or a “fresh avocado”.

PPG – Night Watch (PPG1145-7)


A rich and luxurious yet classic shade of green. Chosen because of its ability to “emulate the feeling of lush greenery and the healing power of nature”. PPG recommends using Night Watch as a focal accent wall, especially in places without any view or tie to the outdoors. It’s also a trendy and gorgeous alternative to the typical black or dark blues used on exteriors. Or, incorporate a touch of the color outside by using it just for doors and shutters.
