Sherwin-Williams has announced their 2019 Color of the Year! 

It’s never too early to start planning ahead if you are building or just redecorating in 2019. Sherwin-Williams has announced their Color of the Year for 2019 as Cavern Clay (SW7701). It’s perfect timing, as this hue is also a great fall color. If you’re not ready commit to a new paint color or even an accent wall, you can still draw inspiration from this earthy shade in your home decor. Cacti and succulents are a huge trend in home decor right now and just planting a few in terracotta pots is a great and subtle way to introduce this warm shade into your home.
