This year Pantone did something a little different, they picked two colors! Serving up a contrasting color combo that conveys a message of happiness, strength, and hope. Thus, as we enter into the first months of 2021, we can pull inspiration from these hues. Ultimate Gray encourages us with strength, calmness, and a solid foundation. While its counterpart, Illuminating invigorates us with the hope of new beginnings, health, and warmth.

After this past year, (more than ever) our homes should make us feel safe and comfortable.

Intermixing a few of these fresh, calming hues into your home is a great way to surround yourself with a little sense of security. Something we are all craving in this new year.
