We look forward to new design trends as each year begins, and in 2021 we need something to focus on as we edge closer to a full year of pandemic living. Who else has been staring at their home’s walls, furnishings, and decor day after day? Perhaps all that staring has pushed you to rethink some of your interior design choices. If this is the case, we recommend that you look to Pantone’s Color of the Year for inspiration, or to be more accurate, Pantone’s Colors of the Year: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating (a vibrant yellow).
Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says of this combination: “The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow Illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit.”
Supportive and hopeful sound pretty good to us.
