“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.”
Bohemians rejoice! Cavern Clay is right at home with natural furnishings; including exposed floors, wood furniture, leather upholstery and worldly textiles.
Exposed brick isn’t just for trendy loft interiors. Brick gives dimension to a room without the need to over decorate.

This canyon-cool terracotta hue might be the answer for all of us who want a desert oasis to call our own,
Cavern Clay evokes a carefree yet sophisticated aesthetic. This bedroom for the adventurous child is one part cowboy and one part Scandinavian style.
