Are you tired of staring at the same four white walls of your home? It’s time to add some color, and Pantone has just announced their colors of the year: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. These two colors work together to bring new life to any part of your home.
Pantone chose two colors this year because more than ever we have realized the value of togetherness. Ultimate Gray represents fortitude and is solid and dependable like river rocks that have stood the test of time. The brightness of Illuminating brings positivity and happiness to any space. According to Pantone, “As people look for ways to fortify themselves with energy, clarity, and hope to overcome the continuing uncertainty, spirited and emboldening shades satisfy our quest for vitality.”
2021’s colors feel altogether fitting as we prepare to welcome a new year brimming with possibilities.
Whether you have a traditional style or prefer something more contemporary, you can find ways to incorporate these two colors into your design. This is a practical color combination that brings stability and simplicity to your space, but also brightens it and brings new vitality. Homebuyers are getting tired of seeing all-white kitchens, so adding color to your design is a smart move. You will also start seeing these colors in the stores and finding all sorts of ways to incorporate them into your space.
Time also pointed out that “2021’s colors feel altogether fitting as we prepare to welcome a new year brimming with possibilities: for a vaccine, for the world to open up again, for a return to some sense of normalcy—and the chance to connect.” These are all great reasons to bring these colors into your home in 2021.
