The season’s unofficial color, you can never have too much blue – especially when it’s grounded in white and accented with warm browns. Bring the feeling of summer serenity to your home with a calming mix of shades ranging from navy to cobalt to sky. This year we will see blues with a softened mistiness that promotes a more serene energy. Discover the perfect combination of mixed materials, soft-washed textiles, coastal décor and candlelight.

It’s always exciting when a brand announces its Color of the Year, but it often leaves people uncertain about how to incorporate it into their own home design. With Behr Paint’s 2019 selection, ‘Blueprint’, it is remarkably easy. The color is available exclusively at The Home Depot.
“Blueprint is an honest, approachable color that conjures up the blueprints that builders rely on to bring architectural designs to life. Blueprint creates a space where you can build your own re-imaged life – where awareness of what we want to build for ourselves can transform into action. “ ~ Behr
Warmer than denim and softer than navy, Blueprint signifies optimism, authenticity and confidence. It is poised to be a classic for years to come. This calming hue is perfect for the bathroom, kitchen or living room walls. But if you’re more reserved, experiment with a much smaller project. “If you’re looking to re-imagine your space in a smaller way, try painting a piece of furniture like a coffee table or bookshelf in this classic blue.
Embracing a full range of blue, teal and gray is a key direction for 2019 Color Trends. Layer light and dark blues on walls, cabinets, furniture and décor items to create a strong impace. Brushes of metallic gold add a touch of luxe.
For the season glimmering on the horizon, Pottery Barn embraced all things color, from the shades of the ocean and sun-bleached tones to vibrant global prints. For a casually elegant design, take inspiration from both land and sea. Earthy woven pieces, a mix of iconic patterns and touches of East Coast chic do just that.
