Introducing This Year’s Pantone Colors

In 1963 Pantone created their Pantone Matching System initially for the printing industry. But for the past 58 years they have worked diligently to become the recognized leader of consistent color systems. Today the Pantone color tool is used as the standard in all fields from industrial design to cosmetic beauty products. In 2000 Pantone launched their Pantone Color of the Year. Met with moderate success it wasn’t until 2007 that the Pantone Color of the Year really came into its own. Now both color conscious individuals and businesses around the world look forward to the first week of December when Pantone introduces the upcoming year’s most innovative color. 

2021 Pantone Color of the Year

After all the uncertainly and chaos of 2020 Pantone decided 2021 was ripe for bringing together two independent colors which highlight “how different elements come together to support one another…”  The marriage of Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and Pantone13-0647 Illuminating, a bright and cheerful yellow, merges one color which is “practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic…” while the other color is “one of strength and positivity. It is a story of color that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.” 

Perfect With Your Current Décor

Shades of gray have been a very popular design trend for the past couple of years. And with Pantone selecting Ultimate Gray which meshes perfectly with Illuminating they have created a scenario that can easily complement your present color scheme. These are colors that are timeless, with the natural elements of both shades solid and reliable. These are colors that you inherently know aren’t fickle trendy fads, here today, gone tomorrow colors that immediately look and feel like last year’s big thing. Ultimate Gray and Illuminating pulse with an undercurrent of dependability. Keep the gray walls. Don’t change the gray sofa. Leave the gray window coverings. Simply work with what you already have by incorporating the 2021 colors into your current décor. For example: 

  • New yellow accent pillows and cozy soft throws will easily jazz up that gray sectional.
  • Need additional seating? Add in a pair of yellow accent chairs. 
  • Nothing says “welcome home” more than a bright cheery Illuminating front door
  • Already have a yellow bathroom? Include gray towels, a gray shower curtain, bath rugs and accessories. 
  • Paint an accent wall in Illuminating or another sunny yellow shade.
