Pantones colour of the year for 2021 is officially here!  However, not 1 but 2 colours have been announced.

Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Grey and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating.

But these 2 colours are not “stand alone” colours or a choice of your favourite colour. They are meant to be a unified pair.  “Two extremely independent colours highlight how different elements come together to express this message of strength and hopefulness.” Says Laurie Pressman, Vice President of Pantone Colour Institute.

Ultimate Grey represents the practical resilient mindset demanded by the pandemic, while its counterpart expresses optimism for the future. – ADPro

In a statement to ADPro, Pantone says “Ultimate Grey and Illuminating are a great combination to set the mood in any room in the home adding a dose of sunshine and positivity…”

Personally, I am loving this fresh, happy and strong combination.  Let’s wrap our heads around these colours and bring strength and happiness into our homes in 2021.
