Color authority Pantone is always keeping us on our toes, and we certainly weren’t expecting them to usher us into 2021 with two colors of the year. Last year, they brought us calming Classic Blue (and we certainly needed it). This year, the Pantone team aims to send “a message of happiness supported by fortitude” with Ultimate Gray and Illuminating.
“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,” Pantone officials stated.
We agree that a little resilience and hope sounds like the perfect combination. With that in mind, here are a few ways to reinvigorate your space with this color combo.
