Sherwin-Williams presents its 2019 Color of the Year- Cavern Clay

Cavern Clay

While we still have to wait a few more months until the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year is revealed, Sherwin-Williams went ahead and presented their new and exciting 2019 Color of the Year – Cavern Clay SW 7701.

A nod to mid-century design set on the future, Cavern Clay comes as a warmer color option after Sherwin-Williams’ 2018 color of the year, Oceanside. The perfect tone to create cozy and comfortable settings for both residential and commercial projects, the 2019 Color of the Year by Sherwin-Williams has already won our hearts over.

A warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots, [a] nod to mid-century modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together create the desert modern aesthetic.

A rich color that, alone, has the power to create a true statement, Cavern Clay will work best when paired with neutrals, bringing in a warm feeling that will transport us to gorgeous canyons, beaches, and deserts on the American continent. The paint company offers designers, architects, and interior decor lovers four optimal options to pair this color with:

Origami White SW 7636 – White & Pastel Paint Color – Sherwin-Williams

Distance SW 6243 – Blue Paint Color – Sherwin-Williams

Moth Wing SW 9174 – Neutral Paint Color – Sherwin-Williams

Dark Clove SW 9183 – Timeless Color Paint Color – Sherwin-Williams

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.

The mid-century color palette inspiration is clear in this earthy tone, which Sherwin-Williams made sure to darken, as a way to make it up to date with contemporary times and give it a fresh twist. However, this comes as great news for mid-century enthusiasts, which throughout the last year have come to think the mid-century renaissence movement was on its last legs.

Cavern Clay comes as a fresh, new alternative for us to keep on loving mid-century design with a contemporary twist, much to the style of your favorite mid-century brand, Essential Home.
