At J. Wright building company, we choose the best-of-the-best for our custom homes and that begins with the exterior and interior paint choices. Painting is an investment we make for our homebuyers – in time, money and labor. A high-quality coating starts with ingredients that allow paint to apply more easily, look better and last longer. When it comes to selecting paint, quality does matter and that’s why we choose to work with Sherwin-Williams.

Each year, top paint manufacturers name a Color of the Year that they feel will best represent the upcoming year. For 2019, Sherwin-Williams unveiled Cavern Clay (SW 7701) as the color of choice. The warm, earthy terracotta shade that’s “a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest,” according to the company, sets the tone for a desert modern aesthetic, and has ancient, elemental roots.

“We believe 2019 will be a renaissance of the 1970s, with a twist,” states Sue Wadden, Director of Color Marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “In the coming year, we will embrace our pioneering spirits and artisan ingenuity. Our 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay, embodies renewal, simplicity and free-spirited, bohemian flair.” The color is a part of the Wanderer Color Journal that was announced earlier this year in Sherwin-Williams’s 2019 Colormix® Color Forecast.

Sherwin-Williams suggests pairing Cavern Clay with neutrals Moth Wing (SW 9174) or Dark Clove (SW 9183) for a carefree yet sophisticated look. To embrace popular 70s color palettes with a refreshed approach, try a dusty denim blue or even an avocado color. Sherwin-Williams also says that the earthy hue can be both casual and refined, such as when making it the backdrop of a dining room or kitchen and pairing it with bright tiles, warm stone and sculptural greenery. While not your typical Southern farmhouse colors, these color combinations can be a fun way to add color into a room in your home, such as in a powder bath, the laundry room, or a sunroom or solarium.

In terms of interior house painting, we use Sherwin-Williams’ Cashmere paint. Cashmere is a unique, ultra-smooth, high-hiding interior latex paint that offers a non-sticky application and provides a silky, high-end finish in flat enamel or low to medium luster. What sets Cashmere apart from the competition is its rich finish, great durability and room-enhancing sheen. Cashmere does not have the same sheens as other paint lines and even when paired with glossier sheens, it produces a smooth, flawless finish.

Resilience offers the best hide of any paint on the market which makes it the most durable and easy to apply. The smooth finish not only makes it great for the general exterior of a home, but it is also perfect to use on architectural details like decorative moldings, columns and doors.
