For over 20 years, every December Pantone has been releasing the Color of the Year that will define the coming 365 days. Since this year has been full of surprises, Pantone decided to give us one more, but this one is a good one guys, don’t worry! Instead of them choosing just one color for the year, they chose TWO! “Illuminating” yellow, bright and cheerful, and “Ultimate Gray”, saturated gray, a classic solid foundation.
Their reason for choosing two colors: “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.”
Here is a little fun fact: this is only the second time in 22 years that Pantone selected two colors. The last time was 2016′ colors of the year—the first being when “Rose Quartz” and “Serenity,” a pink and a blue shade, respectively,”
So excited to have not one but two color options to play with this year. All across the board from the Fashion World, wedding planning, home decor – these two shades will give you plenty of inspiration.
