Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams have made their selections for the Color of the Year for 2019. Both colors have companion pallets that work as either a standalone or in conjunction with the chosen colors. Check out what the companies had to say about their picks below.
SHERWIM WILLIAMS- CAVERN CLAY SW7701
A warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots, Cavern Clay SW 7701, is our 2019 Color of the Year. Cavern Clay is a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together creates a desert modern aesthetic. This warm, earthy hue is both casual and refined. It can be the backdrop of a playful, welcoming dining room or kitchen when paired with bright tiles, warm stone and sculptural greenery. Complementary materials include leather, simple woodgrains and indigenous cacti in contemporary, sleek gardening planters. Cavern Clay is an easy way to bring the warmth of the outdoors in. Envision beaches, canyons and deserts, and sun-washed late summer afternoons—all of this embodied in one color.
Cavern Clay pairs well with other casual, balanced neutrals such as a warm gray or deep brown. Combined with Moth Wing SW 9174 or Dark Clove SW 9183, Cavern Clay evokes a carefree yet sophisticated aesthetic. Alternatively, consider a refreshed version of the popular ‘70s earth tone combinations by pairing Cavern Clay with a dusty denim blue, such as Distance SW 6243 or even a fresh avocado, such as Haven SW 6437. Even when paired with an Origami White SW 7636, Cavern Clay is decidedly fresh.
BENJAMIN MOORE- METROPOLITAN AF-690
Calm, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year 2019, Metropolitan AF-690, exudes glamour, beauty and balance, while setting a neutral tone. This cool gray is meant to emphasize the calming role grays play in society. Metropolitan AF-690 is supported by Color Trends 2019, a coordinating palette of 15 harmonious hues.
