Pantone selected two contrasting colors as its top choices for 2021, putting a shocking twist on the widely awaited color of the year launch. As we come to the end of a tough year, Ultimate Gray, a realistic and dependable neutral, Illuminating, and a bright yellow, combine to represent a sense of resilience and optimism. In a press release, Leatrice (executive director of the Pantone Color Institute) argues that the selection of two independent colors illustrates significantly better.
That indicates that how various elements come together to communicate a message of strength and hopefulness that is both lasting and uplifting, conveying the idea that it’s not about one color or one human, it’s about more than one. The combination of a long-lasting Ultimate Gray and a bright yellow Illuminating expresses a message of hope and fortitude.
Moreover, Ultimate Gray is a timeless neutral that offers a grounding base in interiors, whether painted walls or upholstered furniture. When used on accent furniture, wall art, accessories like pillows and throws, or even a front door, Illuminating provides a splash of light and positivity. The high-contrast combination is energizing, but warm undertones bring the two colors together. It is the perfect balance as we look forward to warmer weather.
