Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year

What color do you think of first when the Southwest is mentioned?  Terra Cotta!  With the tile roofs, Mexican tile interiors and patios, chimeneas, pots and sunsets, we are already there for Sherwin Williams new color for 2019 – Cavern Clay!  Maybe it was a natural reaction to warm up the ongoing gray trend!  Over the years many clients have preferred this color base in rugs for an inviting interior.  Mexican tile patios have always been a favorite of mine as I can find pots to coordinate in all sizes and shapes.  Although this is a departure from our current modern, mid-century trend those of us in the Southwest know our influences from Mexico and Spain will always be classic. 


If you have changed to a more contemporary look, warming up those grays with textiles, rugs and wall hangings in this warm color palette will add the color and coziness you are looking for!  Cavern Clay on the walls with white cabinetry is a fresh look. But right now – on with red (my fave) for the holidays!
