(PDFs are color managed for best printed results possible)On August 23, 2018 Behr announced Blueprint S470-5 as their color of the year for 2019. I’ve seen a few comments out there on blogosphere that Blueprint has a “hint of green”. I don’t think it does. If you look at the color wheel, you can see that Blueprint *lives* over near the end of the Blue Hue Family close to the Purple-Blue Hue Family. It’s not anywhere near green. I think part of the problem is the digital color swatch on the Behr website is weird – it does look blueish-greenish. Combine a bad sRGB value with the fact that everyone’s devices/monitors displays color differently and you get a hot mess of people thinking Blueprint is inherently greenish. Again, it’s not. But it could shift from its hue family notation and appear green in certain qualities of light.
