6 Homes For Sale in Sacramento That Incorporate the 2019 Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year
Did you hear? Sherwin-Williams announced their 2019 Color of the Year! The color is… (drumroll, please!) Cavern Clay.
This warm terracotta color is a nod to mid-century modern style with the soul of the American Southwest. It creates an earthy desert feel that goes beyond trends and timelines, while remaining modern and updated.
“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.” (From the Sherwin-Williams website)
Let’s take a look at a handful of homes for sale in Sacramento that incorporate this color to some level. Some use terracotta-colored tiling, while others have an entire wall — or in one case, the entire exterior — covered with this inviting hue. Get some inspiration for ways to incorporate this delightful color into your own home!
