Pantone, the leading color expert, recently announced the “Color of the Year” for 2021…and, it’s quite fitting that it’s actually two colors, instead of one this year! Because like everything else, the colors are unpredictable. The colors, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, seek to create a balance between strength and optimism, characteristics we could all use as we reconcile with the trials and tribulations of this past year and look ahead to a new beginning.

“A message of happiness supported by fortitude, the combination of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is aspirational and gives us hope. We need to feel that everything is going to get brighter – this is essential to the human spirit,” say the experts at Pantone. 

If you’re looking for a few options for the trend-loving, design inspired person on your holiday list, these gifts are the perfect fit.
