Be Inspired by the 2021 Pantone Color of the Year

If you are looking for color advice for a new trendy look in your garden this season, see the Pantone Color(s) of the year for 2021.

Two colors -- a lovely gray and a winning yellow are the colors for 2021. “Ultimate Gray” (PANTONE 17-5104) evokes “colors of pebbles on the beach and natural elements whose weathered appearance highlights an ability to stand the test of time,” according to Pantone. The company says “Illuminating” (PANTONE 13-0647) is “a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power.”

The color experts at Pantone base their yearly color selections on trends in “fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design,” according to their website.
