Who is ready for bright sunny days? After researching Pantone’s 2021 Color of the Year, I believe they are too. Actually, they chose two this year – Ultimate Gray and Illuminating.
A quote from their website says these two colors are “a marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.” They went on to describe the colors as “two independent colors [highlighting] how different colors come together to support one another.”
Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating is a bright sunny yellow that signifies strength and positivity. “It is a story of color that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.” Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray is “practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic.”

Pantone has been forecasting color trends for over two decades. Their yearly color selections have helped shape furniture, textile, fashion, accessory, technology, and the like.
Just this past weekend, I drove past the cutest grey siding house with a yellow front door. It looked so welcoming and inviting. Colors do have a way of evoking feelings within us. Personally, I like their color combination selection this year. I love using a timeless, solid color like gray for the base such as a house siding and adding a pop of the yellow to the front door. Adding this little bit of color can add such charm and character to you home without costing a fortune. Re-painting a front door is an easy and inexpensive fix.
