Grounded Elements, Down to Earth

It is time to wrap up the fall feels and say ‘see you later’ to November. We also have to take a moment to say hello to Canyon Clay SW 6054 for this month’s Color in Review. Autumn energy is not complete without some earthy fall tones. This month, Sherwin Williams gave us just that. Sherwin William’s color of the month for November is Canyon Clay SW 6054.

Canyon Clay SW 6054

Sherwin Williams announced Canyon Clay SW 6054 for November’s Color of the Month. Canyon Clay is part of Sherwin William’s 2020 Color Forecast and it is a part of the Alive collection. I’ve been crushing over earthy terracottas for a while. I’m so glad to feature some earth tones up in here! Canyon Clay is a rich terracotta color with deep blush pinky-red undertones. I dare you to find a better way to describe it. This color pairs with warm grays, sandy neutrals, and deep bronzes. The color also pairs with other earthy tones, like deep olives, and navy blues. This color is great for gathering and dining spaces.

The Canyon Clay color evokes warmth, energy, and connection. A great application example is this restaurant. The interior features soft natural wood tones, taupes, and creamy whites. These elements complement the Canyon Clay paint color. Furthermore, they tie this look together by creating a balanced composition.

Inspiration – Canyon Clay

Nature-inspired and very admired! The design industry has been trending clays for days and I am here for it. This picturesque image of Horseshoe Bend inspired a color-coordinated color palette. Here are some colors that coordinate with Canyon Clay. The deep clay color pairs nicely with blush tans, mauve, coral-clays, and deep blues.

The colors were sourced from the image and then paired with a Sherwin Williams color shown below. Check out more info in Sherwin Williams November 2020 color of the month featured here.
