Every colour of the rainbow...

When it comes to colour preference, it's quite obvious that it is a very personal choice. One man's heaven is another man's hell, and while you might balk at the thought of a colour palette of yellow and grey, the Pantone Color Institute has chosen shades of these as the colours of the year for 2021.

The shades of 'Ultimate Gray' and 'Illuminating' have been chosen for their warmth and dependability.  They have been described as "practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic". Pantone's ability to forecast colour trends is a marketing force used by furniture, textile and fashion designers from season to season, so this may be the reason that this colour combination has been so widely used this past year.

Grey and yellow not your cup of tea? So how about this 'Classic Blue'? (Pantone's Colour of the Year 2020). 

It's easy to see how influential Pantone's choices are, as many more of us have included bolder colours such as this in colour schemes in our homes. Not everyone will be a fan, but for every hater there are many more who love it!

This December will be when Pantone unveil their choice for 2022 - any ideas what colour it will be? We'll soon see!
