Pantone Colours of the Year for 2021
“Illuminating”  and “Ultimate Gray”

Pantone has chosen not one, but two colours this year as the 2021 Colours of the Year. 2020 was a difficult year for many: being in lockdown and not able to move about of see friends and family, cancellation of weddings, living with or in fear of infection, and inability to visit friends in care facilities or even attend funerals of loved ones.  Ultimate Gray is a soothing colour of stability and represents a timeless neutral solid foundation. In contrast, Illuminating is a bright, happy, and hopeful yellow signifying that brighter days are ahead in 2021. The sun shines brightest after the storm.

Pantone’s executive director Leatrice Eiseman described Ultimate Gray as “emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation such as the colours of pebbles on the beach,” while Illuminating is “a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity”.

Pantone colours provide an excellent opportunity to work them into your 2021 home décor while supporting local business.
