Be Inspired By The Pantone Colours Of The Year 2021

For 2021, Pantone have announced two shades as their ‘colour of the year’ revealing a grey and yellow shade labelled as PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. The merging of these colours signify strength and hope in an uplifting way - something we are all in need of after experiencing the events of 2020.
 
Why not have a fresh outlook on the year and kickstart with a new home project? Whether you are looking to renovate a room or redecorate, we’ve got you covered.
 
Today we’re sharing how you can incorporate these beautiful shades into your home, whether it’s through our gorgeous blinds and curtains, or through other accessories and home furnishings.

 

Use The Colours Separately

 
We understand that yellow or grey may not be everyone's cup of tea, but separately the colours work just as well and connote a similar vibe, if executed correctly.

 

Ultimate Grey

This gorgeous grey shade is a great base for your home. Incorporating this shade within solid furnishings or as an overall wall colour will prove its longevity and versatility. Whether you decide on a grey sofa, rug or feature wall, the colour is guaranteed to last years and always remain classic.
 
You could also accessorise with the hue through our grey roman blinds and grey roller blinds. Available in several shades of grey, there will be something to suit the room and aura you are looking for.
 
Our favourites include the Oslo Blackout Rock Roller Blind, Vitra Blackout Vapour Grey Roller Blind, Santiago Cotton Steel Grey Roman Blind and Faux Suede Deluxe New Grey Roman Blind.

 

Illuminating

This fun yellow shade is perfect for brightening up any room. Whether you add small touches through vases, pillows or throws or go big and cover an entire wall - it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone's face. Connoting happiness, yellow is also psychologically proven to bring warmth and joy. Who wouldn’t want that in their home?
 
We of course have a great selection of yellow roman blinds and yellow roller blinds that will help invoke the same feelings through your window coverings. Our favourites include the Azurite Chenille Honey Yellow Roman Blind, Santiago Cotton Sunshine Yellow Roman Blind, Stockholm Mellow Yellow Roller Blind and Oslo Blackout Solar Yellow Roller Blind.

 

How To Combine Both Shades
