Sherwin Williams Names Color of the Year 2019

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

We enjoy the announcements  of  "color of the year" by major paint companies and always find them interesting....and different from each other.  This year Sherwin Williams has chosen a warm rust they have dubbed Cavern Clay.  This is quite the contrast when compared to the other major paint company choices. You may see our blog for examples from Behr of Blueprint S 470-5 a foggy but definitive blue with a touch of teal and Benjamin Moore's "quieter" choice of a neutral gray they are calling Metropolitan AF-690.

   Cavern ClayCavern Clay is a bold choice. The company's press release says it is "a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together create the desert modern aesthetic.”

     The colors and depths of them vary considerably this will see their infuence spread throughout the choices offered in furniture and other furnishings in the new year.

    This has been a colorful post brought to you by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with EXP Realty, honored to be of service for all things real estate in southeastern Wisconsin.

Good morning, Sally... I'm on the same page as Barbara Todaro. And rust is also not one of my preferred shades.

Good morning Sally K. & David L. Hanson,

I always enjoy seeing what the powers at be have to say about the color of the year. There will be some running off to introduce the latest colors in their home to keep up with the latest. I hope Sherwin Williams choice doesnt' make it to many households as I think it will be out before really in. I love the quieter Benjamin Moore selection.

Good morning Sally and David.  Thanks for the information.  I am not very good at picking colors, but at least I'll know the color of the year.

Good morning Sally and David, I'm a fan of Benjamin Moore, the quality is something I've found to be worth every penny. The rust tone in Sherwin Williams color of the year isn't something that will make it to my walls but, as we all know paint can be very personal!

Sally/David, Like the others before me, rust is not going to be seen in my home. Gray's are the colors we see in new construction.

I had a clay color in a dining room and bath room about 10 years ago. Reminded me of red rock. I liked it for a while, but it didn't wear well.

Good afternoon Sally and David - very different colors.  So if you are selling your home what is the color of the year for buyers?

This is an interesting selection but I do not think we will be using it at our home.

Hi Sally and David- I love seeing what colors are chosen for the color of the year. This would not be one that I would run out and paint on my walls though.
