Sherwin-Williams Names Coral Clay June 2020 Color of the Month

Every 30 days, Sherwin-Williams names a trending paint Color of the Month pick. The June 2020 hue is a dusty salmon shade.

This month, the paint brand is highlighting Coral Clay, SW 9005 (114-C4) as an emerging trend. Depending on your styling, the warm, neutral-toned red could work well as more of a summery salmon pink or beachy coral. It could just as easily bring out natural clay pot shades in your outdoor landscaping design.
