Painting Colors: Sherwin-Williams reveals its 2019 Color of the Year - Cavern Clay

Sherwin-Williams has revealed an earthy hue, Cavern Clay SW 7701, as its 2019 Color of the Year. The company describes Cavern Clay as a "warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots". They explain that it's a "nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest which together create the desert modern aesthetic." Ideal for both homes and commercial spaces, the rich color, which brings to mind the beauty of nature (think beaches, canyons and deserts) works beautifully with neutrals. A warm gray or deep brown like the company's Moth Wing and Dark Clove are ideal pairings. If you're a bit more adventurous with your decor choices, Sherwin-Williams' Distance, a dusty denim blue and Haven, a soft shade of green, are ideal choices.
“We believe 2019 will be a renaissance of the 1970s - with a twist. In the coming year, we will embrace our pioneering spirits and artisan ingenuity,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing, Sherwin-Williams. “Our 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay, embodies renewal, simplicity and free-spirited, bohemian flair.” Be Inspired ......
