Renodots article - Pantone Colour of 2021 For Your Home

What is in store in your 2021 One of those things is the ability to introduce new colours into your home! Might we interest you to incorporate Pantone Colour of 2021? Head of Pantone, Leatrice Eiseman, has identified PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Grey and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating (a shade of yellow) as the selected colour of this year! Pantone is a company known for their PMS (Pantone Matching System), widely used in home design and other related industries.

Let’s look at how you can incorporate Illuminating into your home.

Most people cringe at the thought of introducing yellow into the home. It is bright and sometimes borderline glaring. However, Illuminating can be considered “subtle” compared to the other shades of yellow. It is less vibrant, and it seems to mimic the colour of sunshine.

Illuminating is perfect if you want to highlight an area of the house. The magic of this shade of yellow is that it does not overpower the rest of the house, but still enough for it to stand out on its own.

Like the image above, just one pillar coloured yellow already sparks joy. That is because yellow is often tied to optimism. Ahh, the perfect encouragement we need as we embark on another year of uncertainty.

We recommended pairing furniture identical to this colour in rooms, such as the dining room or study room where activities are abuzz.

Pantone Colour 2021 – The Art of Balance

Maybe the prospect of having a big change in your housing may not be something you are looking for, try going for small changes!

Painting just one side of your wall can change the whole atmosphere of the room.

Just like the bedroom above, the grey wall makes the space ultra-chic and modern. Because the tone is neutral, you can practically throw in any colour and it will blend seamlessly.

But there is one colour that is considered a match made in heaven when it comes to Ultimate Grey… and that is yellow!

Check out the two pillows on the bed. Though it may be insignificant, the pillows create a focal point in the room as it is the brightest part of the area. The pillow is a simple addition to the room but it balances the neutral tones.

You may have seen many shades of grey in most homes, but “Ultimate grey” brings just enough neutral tone without overcompensating. Gray is often used as a background colour serving to project another object apart from itself.

Though this colour is often used for the study, it can be used in living rooms too!

Ultimate grey is not too dark to not elicit a feeling of glumness. Additionally, it provides a sense of composure and accentuates subtle elegance.

Here’s another way to add Ultimate Grey into your home. Always have a colour palette before filling your space with items. The majority of this living space is coloured Ultimate Grey, but you can see off-whites, dark greys and browns complementing the base colour.

The neutral tones paired with backlighting and sconces bring focus towards the television console.

Pantone Colour 2021 – Tile it right

Add some texture to the shower room by introducing the Ogee Drop!

Wait? What is an Ogee Drop?

It is also known as a fish scale, mermaid or scallop tile.

But what makes this bathroom stand out from the rest is the usage of both the Pantone colours with hues within the same spectrum. These colours bring together a perfect blend of composure and optimism.  

The year 2021 may be uncertain, but it doesn’t mean that your house has to depict it. With these colour themes, your home will be reinvigorated with a new look and new optimism.
