Pantone Colour of the Year

Every year, the design world and decoristas everywhere await the announcement from Pantone declaring the Colour of the Year. Pantone’s astute colour selection influences product development and design decisions from fashion to home furnishings.

For 2021, Pantone has chosen not one but two colours to encapsulate the new year: The calming shade of Ultimate Gray 175104 and the vibrant yellow colour Illuminating 13064. These two colours could not be more opposite, and that is precisely the point. “The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray with vibrant yellow illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Practical and rocksolid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit.”

Whether you plan to incorporate both colours or just one, here are some simple ways to infuse the hues into your lifestyle.
