2021 Color of the Year announcements are always interesting! Because these colors will influence the marketplace in the coming year. So, make no mistake these are serious colors. Each color choice has been researched and selected for numerous reasons by each company. Although you may think it is just a color prediction, these colors will influence everything from automobiles, food packaging, clothing, home decor, and everything in-between.

My takeaway, 2021 Color of the Year
Overall, I feel like the 4, 2021 Color of the Year listed here on their own, on the surface could not be further apart. However, the underlying main theme for the color selections is one of harmony, calming influences, and uplifting spirits. Then, when you dive a little deeper into the color palettes, these hues can work beautifully together. From an energizing yellow, basic neutral gray, subtle soothing teal, and a bold dark gray. And that is the point for me. Each of us as individuals, decorating our home with our unique vision and what comfort means to us. And the colors we choose to surround ourselves with, reflect our personality.
That being said, and as much as I like gray & yellow, Pantone colors of the year, pairing Ultimate Gray + Illuminating is not a new color palette. As a time-tested, safe, known color palette this choice seems to be an affirmation that Gray will continue to be in the forefront.
So, it will be interesting to see how the marketplace will embrace these colors. And, of course, how these colors are incorporated into the home.
be happy + be comfortable in your home!
