Ways to Incorporate 2021 Pantone Colours To Your Home
One of the fun and exciting things that everyone looks forward to at the beginning of the year is the announcement of Pantone’s annual colour. This year, Pantone has chosen not only one but two colours – Flint Gray and Radiant Sun. A soft, livable gray colour with a vibrant sunny yellow is meant to represent strength and positivity for the new year, giving us hope after a difficult year. These two colour combinations are great for interior design and you’ll see them in the latest trends from fashion, beauty and more! Try incorporating these gorgeous colours into your home this year for a pop of colour and to represent positivity throughout the year.
Add Colour Slowly
Don’t get too excited about adding colour to your new home as you want to ease yourself and slow down the process. You probably have a lot of colours going on at your home, so the best way to start is by adding in small accessories. Accessories that you could easily swap out and are inexpensive, such as pillows, rugs, throw blankets, bedding, lighting, and more. The options are endless! Consider a pop of brightness of vibrant yellow of a pillow or home decor accessory. This will definitely make your space more lively and give you a mini-makeover with the latest trends. Adding contrasting colours is a great way to add dimensions to space and you can definitely incorporate both colours without being overwhelming.
Upgrade Your Home Office
Many of us are spending more time in our home office than ever before, so why not transform your office? The two colours are great to use for a home office as the gray sets the mood for your office, and the yellow can play as an accent colour. Try incorporating vibrant yellow accessories like stationeries, fixtures, desktop accessories, or even a mug. You’ll be surprised how little accessories can change the overlook of the whole space. The two colour combo is a great way to refresh your home office for the new year and help you stay motivated. A great thing about gray and yellow is that they are not just one-year trendy colours. They have been commonly used for interior and home decor, so you don’t have to worry about an out-of-date look after a year.
Cozy Up With Layers
Did you know that gray is a soothing colour? This is why gray is commonly used in bedrooms and living spaces as you can apply soothing elements with just soft neutral colours. Apply the neutrals to large spaces such as walls, beddings and add a pop of colour with a throw blanket or a rug. Adding vibrant colours can help you wake up in the morning with more energy by adding extra brightness to your space. Adding yellow can act as the sun at times, which is necessary for the Vancouver winter season. Also, if you have any DIY projects you’re planning to tackle this year, try adding the two colours of the year for a trendy look.
Now that you’ve learned a few ways to incorporate the Pantone colours into your home, which one will you start? Remember, there are plenty of more ways to give yourself and your house a makeover, giving you a fresh start to the new year.
