2021 Pantone Colors of the Year

Pantone Colors of the Year 2021 are “Ultimate Gray” and “Illuminating”—Let Them Inspire You

Last Updated on January 19, 2021

Color can set the tone—literally—for virtually anything. Whether it’s a mood, state of mind, or even a memory, color can spark emotion at a glance. As we welcome 2021 with hope and promise, it could not be more fitting for Pantone to announce not one, but two independent colors that marry perfectly to best express the tone for the new year—“Ultimate Gray” (No. 17-5104) and “Illuminating” (No. 13-0647).

This month, Granite and TREND Transformations would like to share with you our exquisite mosaic tile and showstopping etherium® By E-Stone countertops that reflect the beauty of this year’s Pantone Colors of the Year. The shades of gray and yellow that are included in this selection of countertops and mosaic tiles can transform your kitchen or bath into a space of tranquility and elegance.

Getting reacquainted with Pantone

Did you ever notice with each passing year there’s a specific color (or colors) that stands out on the runways for home décor and even furniture? Your observation is not a coincidence. Pantone is the driving force and iconic color authority behind those color trends, as it sets the standard for more than 10 million designers and producers throughout the world. As the global authority and provider of color systems, Pantone has been influencing product development and purchasing decisions for over 20 years.

Why “Ultimate Gray” and “Illuminating”?

Pantone describes their choices of colors as a message of strength and hopefulness. “Ultimate Gray” and “Illuminating” are hues that are both enduring and uplifting—elements that are certainly meant to nurture the optimism for 2021. This dynamic duo supports each other in a practical and fundamental sense while bringing warmth and a sense of positivity that can stand the test of time. This idea opens a palette of shades to incorporate into your home décor, wardrobe, or wherever the colors might inspire you. Both will be part of the design trends to look for this year.
