Team Experts

Move over Classic Blue 2020 and say hello to an Illuminating 2021! The Pantone® Color Institute has revealed not one, but two new colors for the new year. Meet vibrant (PANTONE 13-0647) Illuminating and Ultimate Gray (PANTONE 17-5104). According to the experts, it's a marriage of color with a message of "strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting."

Pantone Colors of the Year are chosen to best reflect the year ahead. The combination of this year's colors speak of hope, resilience, strength, and positivity. The independent colors also should be viewed as one to signify solidarity in the coming year. The Pantone Colors of the Year are important since they reflect color trends in fashion, beauty, design décor and yes gardening!
