Last week, Pantone announced their highly-anticipated color of the year for 2021, or should we say COLORS! … ‘Illuminating‘, a bright and cheery yellow and ‘Ultimate Gray‘, a cool and calming gray.

Pantone describe the hues as “two independent colors that highlight how different elements come together to support one another“.  Further adding, that the combination “is a story of color that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly”. A beautiful pair, really!
