A Pop of Pantone with 2021's Colors

A Pop of Pantone – 6 Ways to Decorate with 2021’s Colors of the Year

After the roller coaster that was 2020, we could all use a little change, especially in our everyday surroundings. So here are 6 fun and easy ways to update your home’s decor by incorporating both of Pantone’s 2021 Colors of the Year – Ultimate Grey and Illuminating.

Get Artsy

Mindesign Crafts, West Elm and Perigold

Small, artsy accents are a budget-friendly way to incorporate new hues without making a big commitment. Think sculptures, paintings and knick-knacks to breathe fresh air into your home.

Splash it with Color

Jakub Komrska, Kelly Nut Design and Fireclay Tile

Add flair and life to any space with a fresh coat of paint. From bold front doors and colorful cabinetry to soothing tones on furniture and everything in between, the design choices are only limited by your imagination.

Furnish a Statement

Shelterness, Arch Daily and Michelle Burwick Design

Think simple and affordable like reupholstering furniture or updating pillows and draperies. From a simple throw on the bed and new curtain to an entire statement piece like a sofa or headboard, it’s easy to add as much or as little of this inspiring color palette as desired.

Wall Interest

Shelterness, Murals Wallpaper and Michelle Berwick Design

Don’t stare at a blank canvas day-in and day-out. Boost your wall appeal and put those Pantone hues to use through wallpaper, murals, texture and paint!

Get Floored

QuickStep, West Elm and Domaine Home

Add a touch of grey or yellow with a dash of cozy by adding plush area rugs, or make it fun with a vibrant tile pattern. Whatever you decide, make people want to look down!

Light It Up

Lamp Plus, LitFad and Graeme Boyle

A brighter future calls for a little illumination, right? So take some extra time to consider the chandeliers in the dining room, table lamps in the living space and fun pendant lighting in the kitchen. In the end, just make sure it inspires as well as illuminates.
