The tradition continues again. Pantone surprises us by choosing a duo for 2021. Neutral gray (17-5104 Ultimate Gray) and bright yellow (13-0647 Illuminating) will be in the spotlight this year. Find out how to incorporate them into your decor.

 

What’s the Pantone color of the year?

Founded in 1963, the Pantone principle was created to solve the more complex color analogy problem in printing. Soon after, the Pantone Matching System (PMS) became the easiest way to list colors using their catalog and classification method. For more than 55 years now, Pantone has been the world's most important color matching system.

Every December since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute has unveiled the color of the coming year. The selection process for this innovative concept is the result of the influence and analysis of several important contemporary sociological sources and factors.

It's no surprise that the Pantone Color of the Year is eagerly awaited with so much excitement and anticipation for all creative spheres as a whole.

 

Why neutral gray and bright yellow?  

The Pantone Colors of the Year reflect the color trends in fashion, beauty, design, and home decor for the coming months. Regarding 2021, Pantone wanted to convey a message of joy and serenity due to the past year which has been more than trying worldwide.

The shade of gray is meant to soothe, reassure and wrap ourselves in a true haven of peace, while the bright yellow hue is meant to instill hope and spread benevolence in order to stimulate meaningful vitality.

 

How to incorporate yellow and gray into your interior design 

Even if you think yellow is a lovely color, you might not know how to match it in your home. Many people do not use this shade to decorate an entire room, but rather use it as a color accent sparingly.

A touch of yellow can liven up a space and bring some style to the more subtle gray. Yellow can bring warmth and character with a simple touch of paint or in accessories dotted around the room. Here are some pretty spaces that show how these two colors can work together in the most wonderful way.

 

The Livingroom
