2019 Colors of the Year capture Hill Country beauty
We can’t help but think of the natural beauty of the Hill Country when we look at the 2019 Colors of the Year from several leading paint and design companies. We can expect to see these fresh colors on everything from interior walls to furniture and accessories everywhere, including in some of our newest model homes in Sweetwater.
Living Coral. Pantone describes Living Coral as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” This color represents the fusion of modern life, Pantone says, as a nurturing color that appears in natural surroundings and also displays a lively presence on social media. It “emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature.” This color reminds us of Indian Paintbrushes, one of the most popular wildflowers in Sweetwater, not to mention our community’s gorgeous sunsets.
Blueprint. We love Blueprint, Behr’s Color of the Year, because it speaks directly to the excitement and energy of starting a new chapter life in a brand-new home at Sweetwater. Blueprint is “an honest, approachable color that conjures up the blueprints builders rely on to bring architectural designs to life,” according to Behr. “Blueprint creates a space where you can build your own reimagined life—where awareness of what we want to build for ourselves can transform into action.”
Metropolitan. A sophisticated gray is always on trend, and Metropolitan, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year, is described as calm, composed and effortlessly sophisticated. “Metropolitan emanates nuance, harmony and extravagant ease,” the company states. “Always adaptable, it softens to matte or shimmers with sheen. It's neutral. It's understated. It just is. This is color, off-duty."
Cavern Clay. We all love nature, and Sherwin-Williams describes Cavern Clay as an easy way to bring the warmth of the outdoors in. “A warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots, Cavern Clay is a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together creates a desert modern aesthetic,” the company describes. “Envision beaches, canyons and deserts, and sun-washed late summer afternoons—all of this embodied in one color.” Does this color remind anyone of our hometown team, the Longhorns?
