Pantone Color of the Year 2021


A sunny color story with the promise of something profound and uplifting.

The PANTONE Colors of this year are 13-0647 Illuminating and 17-5104 Ultimate Gray. This bold combination is rock solid as gray but at the same time playful and uplifting as yellow. As people look for hope to overcome the continuing uncertainty these spirited shades satisfy our quest for steadiness and vitality.

The traditional style dining room above is encapsulated in the gray hues of weathered beach pebbles while the golden chairs draw our eyes like sunlight. The artwork explodes behind the scenes like the dawn of a new day. These feelings can also be captured if you want to decorate with a more modern mood. Either way this classic color combo wants to be noticed. It inspires regeneration, pressing us forward toward the next horizon.
