Decorate Your Home with Pantone’s Colours of the Year for a Happier 2021


We’re not the only ones excited for 2021. Pantone has just released two colours of the year—Ultimate Gray and Illuminating—to usher in the new year. While both colours represent a different emotional aspect, grey being a supportive and solid foundation and yellow signifying hopefulness and optimism, the two shades complement each other beautifully to reflect our hopes for the year ahead. Here’s how you can decorate your home using Pantone’s colours of the year for a happy headstart into 2021!
