With the stroke of midnight on December 31st turning the clocks to 2021, the sighs of many who hope for a better, brighter year echoed throughout the world. Many people are optimistic that this new year will hopefully bring an end to a year that no one will forget. When it came time for the trendsetters to predict the coming year's fashion, design, color palettes, and trends for the new year, they agreed that uplifting, yet soothing themes would be the right balance for this year.
The 2021 paint colors of the year reflect that trend of tranquil relaxation for the home where everyone is spending more time, turning our homes into a haven. In combination with that trend is the need for energizing and refreshing spaces that rejuvenate the homeowner as they enter the new year with fresh hopes and dreams.
This year’s color palettes do not disappoint.
Pantone’s color of the year is actually two colors- Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. They wanted the combination to echo the soothing, yet invigorating vibe to bring a new perception for 2021. We are loving this combo together! It brings just a touch of energy without going over the top!
