Cavern Clay (SW7701), Sherwin Williams Color of the Year 2019 reminds me of colors hues rooted in the 70’s and 80’s with its warm, earthy tones. This terracotta color was birthed from our “elemental roots” and is a “nod to mid-century modern style, but with a soul of the American Southwest, which together creates the desert modern aesthetic,” according to Sherwin Williams.

But what about the application and transitioning Cavern Clay into your home? It has been suggested that this warm and earthy hue is an ideal color for “flattering and design-forward aesthetics” according to Sue Wadden. It can be used as a backdrop accent in a dining room or kitchen when complemented with other design elements.
