* from Homes & Gardens magazine, Dec. 2020
"Applying a new lick of paint to your walls is an excellent way to give your interiors a fresh-faced makeover. But which color sample pots should you be buying, and what are the biggest paint trends for 2021?
Global color authority, Pantone, announced their selection for Color of the Year 2021 and it's a combination of two: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating – a rock gray and a sunshine yellow, respectively.
This clever combination of colors brings the message of strength and reliability paired with the joy of sunshine filled days to come.
This is only the second time ever that Pantone has made the bold move of naming two Colors of the Year.
'Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope,' says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. 'We need to feel encouraged and uplifted: this is essential to the human spirit.'
Also: the Dulux Colour of the Year 2021, called Brave Gound is a warm neutral that feels both comforting and grounding. It’s not a ‘wow’ shade, but that’s the beauty of this neutral hue – it’s the understated allure which we are being inspired to draw upon.
Over at Benjamin Moore, the Colour of the Year 2021, called Aegean Teal, is a warm blue-green with gray undertones. It has a unique quality wherein it lends a fresh, crisp feel to a scheme, while simultaneously creating a relaxed and soothing atmosphere – exactly what we need in the current challenging climate.
Earlier this year, Sherwin-Williams announced its own 2021 Color of the Year: Urbane Bronze SW 7048.
A warm, sophisticated bronze, the color inspires all of us to find sanctuary in any space. Urbane Bronze is a rich anchor that grounds the mind in calm and stability with its ties to the natural world."
SW: No matter what colors you choose, make sure you have some unique and uncommon wall art from Saltwater Vintage & Uncommon Prints to complement your home decor.
