This year’s Pantone Colour of the Year has been announced and it’s a game of two halves, writes Amy Norbury
Not one but two colours have been chosen for 2021 – Ultimate Grey to reflect on the year 2020 and Illuminating Yellow to express hope for the future.
“The selection of two independent colours highlights how different colours come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting,” explained Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
“Practical and rock-solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and hope.”
The pairing of grey and yellow has long been an interiors favourite, with the bold colour pop bringing a playful vibe to the more solid neutral base.
