Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year is...

Cavern Clay? We need to discuss this. 

None of these seating options look terribly comfortable.

None of these seating options look terribly comfortable.

Am I missing something here? How completely underwhelming.

Cavern Clay is a lovely color. If you want your house to look like someone rubbed a turd on the walls. 1,500+ colors to pick from and Cavern Clay is where it is at? I love Sherwin-Williams but I don't understand why we couldn't have gone with something prettier? Like a nice pink or green or black or anything that doesn't so closely resemble the poop emoji. 

I feel like a lighter brown could have been a sexy hot chocolate Princess Elsa type thing or a darker brown could have been really leathery and masculine like Sam Elliott.

From SW - "Cavern Clay is a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together creates a desert modern aesthetic."

So this is Southwestern Midcentury Modern? Please help me out here with this math... Southwestern Midcentury Modern is the new Shiplap?

What is your favorite color of M&M's? Oh, just the brown ones for me, thanks.

Cavern Clay

The name "Cavern Clay" really sounds like someone just used a Thesaurus to find new words for a mud hole. They were all “This paint kind of looks like… mud. But mud doesn’t sound terribly sexy. What about clay? Cave… Hole… Cavern Clay?” I want that job. I’d be all “We are calling this Poop Emoji Party!”

Maybe this is one of those colors that looks better in person? It may actually be fabulous. It sounds like it would go flawlessly on a diaper changing station or in a mud room.

In all seriousness, I’m excited to see where the new brown trend leads. Is this the death of the gray and white everything of the last five years? I love me some 1970s so I’m all for bringing back the brown and gold. I’ve got a disco ball and loose morals.

Perhaps I'll try Cavern Clay in the parlor with our fabulous Norma Costa sofa! I still love you Sherwin-Williams! #SWCOLORLOVE
