Ways to Use Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year Cavern Clay

As a Certified Color Strategist, I love color and exploring the latest color trends and how you might use them in your own home. Cavern Clay is a warm, earthy and inviting terra cotta color which is the Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year. An interesting choice!

When I first saw it, it reminded me of the red rock country of Arizona. It brought back memories of Southwestern Indian tribe colors from their rugs and art, terra cotta pots from Mexico and Indian ruins of New Mexico. Sherwin Williams calls it “Ancient, yet fully alive, and Bohemian, yet totally refined”.  I could sense the ancient aspect.  It reminded me of the colors of a Hopi village where I once attended a ceremony that felt like it could have taken place a thousand years ago. Sherwin Williams says that it goes great with natural furnishings, including exposed floors, wood furniture, leather upholstery and worldly textiles.

I was working on a design for a Turkish inspired living room, and I noticed how much this color is used in Turkish rugs, pillows, textiles and art. No surprise as Turkey is a place where the land has inspired much of their art and culture, is a place with ancient roots, and Turkish elements are often used in Bohemian inspired design.  Turkish style is a global style that is warm, inviting, earthy and exotic.

In the design below, I used Cavern Clay on the walls and mixed traditional rugs, pillows and accents with modern furniture and art.
