Color of the year 2019 announcements are beginning to roll out, and Behr is among the first to announce its pick for the go-to color of the coming year: Blueprint.

This mid-tone blue (full name: Blueprint S470-5) and the 14 other shades of Behr’s 2019 Color Trends are the result of a year’s worth of research in design trends and other areas. Blueprint is dynamic enough to blend with cooler and warmer colors alike, which is good news for homeowners (and handy renters): Incorporating the Behr Color of the Year 2019 into your home doesn’t mean you have to throw everything out and start over.

Blueprint is a bold color choice, but not overwhelmingly so—it’s still soft enough to fit into homes full of neutrals and pastels. And, as the IKEA Catalog 2019 predicted, rich colors are going to be big next year, so adding Blueprint to your home now will put you squarely ahead of the curve. Whether you’re looking to do a complete overhaul or just updating a few features, you can use Blueprint in your home—here’s a little design inspo to get you started.
