An easy and cost effective way to prepare your Evergreen home to sell well is to update the paint throughout.

Every year, designers around the world look forward to the reveal of Pantone’s new Color of the Year. Similarly, interior designers await the rollout of new color palettes from major paint companies.

These rollouts require color stylists to carefully analyze global and societal trends from the runway, varying lifestyles, and demographics.
Consumer Reports recently predicted the hottest interior paint colors of 2019, and we picked our favorites here.

We also included how and where to incorporate these colors into your home.

Benjamin Moore: Metropolitan AF-690

Why it's hot: neutral tones create a calming ambiance

Where to use: living room, sleek kitchen, sophisticated bedroom

Where to buy: select paint and hardware stores

Bob's opinion: I'll refer to this one as "REALTOR gray" since it is neutral, clean and doesn't make too bold of a statement.,

Clark+Kensington: Stainless Steel 37B-4

Why it's hot: this almost-periwinkle-blue is refreshing and can revive any dull space that needs some light!

Where to use: accent wall, living room, or on furniture

Where to buy: local Ace Hardware

Bob's comment: Meh.  This might be a little too much in the mountains.  I'm always cautious of the brighter colors.
