I almost forgot Pantone’s Color of the Year
I’m about a month late, I think, in writing about Pantone’s Color(s) of the Year selection for 2021. Perhaps that’s because I’m not crazy about their combination of yellow and gray. Don’t get me wrong. I like a nice sunny yellow in appropriate places. I don’t wear yellow, for example, but yellow flowers are spectacular, sunsets need yellow, etc. And grays have long been my favorite neutral. But this Pantone combo … no thanks.
Still, I grant you, these colors may work briefly for our passage from a gray (if not black) 2020 into a sunny, hopeful 2021. Fingers crossed.
