Pantone Colors of the Year 2021 : Ultimate Gray & Illuminating
An unexpected yet gorgeous combination.
Pantone chose ultimate gray and illuminating as their colors of year. Though they might not seem like a popular mix, these two independent colors support one another. Illuminating is bright, cheerful and balanced by ultimate gray. As a solid, steadfast and composed color, gray allows the complimented color to shine. Together, Pantone’s colors of the year convey a message of strength and hopefulness, emanating energy and clarity. To illustrate this year’s ultimate gray and illuminating colors of the year, we have rolled out rugs in the winning shades.
