Trying to stay on-trend can be oh-so-exhausting. But mixing Sherwin-Williams’ 2019 color of the year, Cavern Clay, into your home feels like Mother Nature is guiding your hand. Chosen by a global color forecasting team, the subtle desert hue borders on a terra cotta orange, complementing vibrant palettes or adding a pop of color when paired with neutral browns and grays, says Emily Kantz, an interior designer at Sherwin-Williams and a member of the forecasting team. That versatility means it suits design styles from rustic to modern chic. “This color is something we saw that was fresh and hadn’t been talked about in a while, but is also very classic and rich,” Kantz says. Here are five easy ways to bring Cavern Clay into your home design.
