Every year the Sherwin-Williams color and design team travels the world to find most fashionable design trends, and discover how colors influence the way we feel in our homes.

“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.”

Who wouldn’t want to feel more free-spirited? The other good news is that this warm, terra cotta color brings out the best in both contemporary and mid-century modern furnishings, making it a welcoming color choice for dining rooms and living rooms alike. Decorating with Cavern Clay’s terra cotta color is a great way to bring the warmth of the sun indoors, making every room it touches feel cozy and inviting, while evoking an energizing, modern vibe.

Try pairing it with other modern neutrals – think avocado, clove and crisp white, to create a clean, modern look. Use it to warm up your whole room or as a bold accent color. Pair a cloudy-grey couch against a backdrop of a Cavern Clay feature wall. Add stylish terra cotta cushions such as the Sunkiss Pillow. Relax on a terra-cotta patterned ottoman and throw in an abstract or bohemian area rug with terra cotta accents, such as the Granada or Starck Area Rug to make your living or family room feel both snug and sophisticated.

Spice up the kitchen

Step up your style with a Loto W Too Stool in Smoke to pick up a Cavern Clay accent wall, or add a copper pendant light to give your kitchen more pizazz.

This terra cotta shade is so versatile, it can add earthy elegance to any space it brushes with warm, enticing color.
