Benjamin Moore just revealed its paint color of the year for 2019, and they want to set the tone as neutral as possible.

The brand’s color of choice was a cool gray, dubbed Metropolitan AF-690. The selection is meant to emphasize the “calming role gray plays in society,” a company spokesperson tells PEOPLE in a statement.

“Comforting, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Metropolitan AF-690 exudes beauty and balance,” Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence, said. “It’s a color in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design. Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous gray creates a soothing, impactful common ground.”
