Behr Color of the Year 2019

Behr Paint just announced its Color of the Year 2019.

Meet Blueprint (S470-5), a mid-tone blue that can be described as “warmer then denim, softer than navy.”

Blueprint anchors Behr’s annual Color Trend Report, which encompasses a palette of 15 supporting colors, that is forecasted to influence design in the coming year.

The 2019 Color trend palette is divided into 4 color stories: Color Binge, Down to Earth, Soft Focus and Inspired Curation.

At first glance, Blueprint might look a bit familiar. That’s because Denim Drift was Akzo Nobel’s Color of the Year 2017. While similar, Denim Drift is a bit more pale and dusky.

While Behr is still a newcomer to the Color of the Year (COTY) predictions, it appears Blueprint will be as well received as their very first
COTY choice from last year- In the Moment.

Blueprint Inspiration

Behr’s Color of the Year is an approachable color that conjures up vintage blueprints builders used to rely on to bring architectural designs to life. For Behr, Blueprint lays the foundation for new beginning- a reimagination of our lives expressed through color and design.
