Pantone Color of the Year 2021




โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฝThis year there are two Pantone colors. The addition of one more color honors the struggles that the pandemic and other events have brought on to most us. It signifies hope โญ๏ธ and endurance ๐ŸŒ‘, and I know I need it now more than ever.

For others, it could mean grief and new beginnings. Grief of the loss of loved one, the loss of a job, postponed weddings, canceled prom, and the unraveling of the political climate. Iโ€™ve felt depressed, angry and exhausted on so many levels. ๐Ÿ˜“

But on the flip side, so many have discovered new hobbies. I cook and do yoga more than ever before and itโ€™s given me time and space to enjoy and know myself. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ Now, cooking is actually my happy place that I look forward to. It nourishes my soul AND my tummy. ๐Ÿ‘

The addition of one more color honors the struggles that the pandemic and other events have brought on to most us.


๐ŸŽจComing back to color, itโ€™s interesting that they are both cool-toned. ๐Ÿ˜Ž



๐ŸŒˆ Illuminating, the yellow color, fits perfectly into the Dark Winter color palette. Itโ€™s a neutral cool color that is powerful but is not the brightest. It would make a nice shirtdress! ๐Ÿ‘—



๐ŸŒˆ Ultimate Gray is a very cool gray. I wondered if it fit better with True Summer or True Winter. I decided to go with True Summer because it just fit a little more seamlessly with the rest of the colors as a neutral. For me, gray will always mean a nice, warm cardigan. ๐Ÿ˜‰
