2019 Color of the Year

If you are craving a color that exudes warmth, welcome, and a playful spirit, look no further than 2019’s color of the year: Cavern Clay (#SW7701). Sherwin Williams formulated this color to embody the soul of the Southwest, capture midcentury modern aesthetics, and deliver a casual yet refined finish.

Colors of the year should be versatile, and the terracotta-inspired Cavern Clay does not disappoint in this regard. Pair it with Moth or Dark Clove for an effortlessly sophisticated look or go retro with Distance (a denim blue tone) or Haven (an avocado color — why not make 2019 the year of bold!).

Cavern Clay is an excellent way to bring the outdoors in: create a beach or desert motif or bring sun-drenched summer afternoons into your home all year long. Even if the weather outside is frightful, your interior will be exquisitely delightful.

Smooth and sophisticated: Cavern Clay nails it!

Cavern Clay also masters a fun beachy vibe

Explore Sherwin Williams Color Personalities

Sherwin Williams collected 42 trend colors to create its 2019 master palette. To help you select colors that complement each other beautifully, they have organized these into six “color personalities.”


A visionary palette designed for those who value creativity, Shapeshifter is inspired by the rings of Saturn, spirituality, and healing energy. Its colors are both calming and bold, classic and forward-looking.


This palette is sunkissed, subtle, warm, and evocative of the endless horizon, it features earthy colors that are heavily influenced by the Southwest. If you love the look of worn leather, woven wool, handcrafted art and crafts, terracotta, and succulents, you’ll love the wandering spirit of the Wanderer collection.


Think leather-bound books that you can inhale deeply from as you read; classic tweeds; and cozy nooks into which you can escape. Aficionado is endlessly elegant; it speaks of tradition and refinement. Full of rich, deep copper, gold, merlot, and greys, this palette is the height of impeccable taste.


If you want an eclectic palette that reflects your passion for life (and style!), go for the bold Enthusiast family of colors. With the other palettes we’ve noted, less is more. Subtle is powerful. With Enthusiast, more is more! It’s bold. It’s vivid. It’s energetic. It’s designed for maximum impact.


Bring the outdoors in and immerse yourself in a garden of beauty and peace. The inspiration for sophisticated Naturalist came from the forest, terrariums, butterflies, and botanical prints. Earthtones, leafy greens, and dusky rose Delightful come to life with a pop of bold Eros Pink. The beauty of this palette is that it can be calm and sedate or vivid and energetic. It is entirely up to you!


From a thrilling safari through the Serengeti to a bustling spice market in Morocco, Raconteur spins yarns of adventure, intrigue, and, above all, beauty. This palette pays homage to the art of the story; with rich colors and endless versatility, Raconteur empowers you to tell your own tale.
