pantone has Revealed its 2021 Color of the Year and they’ve actually chosen two colors for us — Ultimate Gray and Illuminating yellow. a beautiful pairing, indeed, but today we’re focusing on all gray, all the time. for me, the mood that comes to mind when one decorates with gray is ‘serenity now’.  a sophisticated, stylish gray is one of my very personal hues, so i was pretty excited to see this new color trend announced. whether you’re painting an entire room gray, or adding a touch of gray in your accessories, art and accents here’s a look at how you might like to bring it to life no matter what your favorite shade of gray may be. gray for days!

  1. Something very soothing about all the greys shown here! Never a dull or depressing colour for me. There seems to be a shade of grey for every accent colour and every style one chooses.

  2. la verdad es que es de mis colores favoritos. en todas sus gamas…lo encuentro elegante,relajante y un aliado perfecto para combinaciones. me alegro que pantone lo haya hecho aliado con el amarillo que tambien es muy versatil. nunca lo comento porque la gente le cuesta entender que te guste el gris. un abrazo.
