Cool Color Trends for 2021 starting from Pantone 2020 Classic Blue

|| 2020 UPDATE ||

PANTONE 2021 is 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + 13-0647 Illuminating

This color match represents a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.

Ultimate Gray is the color of resilience, of strength, which assures and encourages feelings of composure and steadiness. We also decided to end this 2020 with grey as our color of the month, because of its associations with strength, with history and also with solid natural elements such as rocks.

Illuminating is the color of optimism: bright and sunny, it encapsulates those deep feelings of positivity that we all need in this special moment.

 PANTONE 2020 is Classic Blue 19-4052.

 Classic Blue is a timeless hue, elegant in its simplicity. This color is the response to our research for peace and tranquility for the next decade.

We predicted this in our color boards in 2018, starting from an analysis I did of the Pantone of the last year. This year I am doing the same, by disclosing the hottest color trends for 2021 starting from an analysis on Pantone 2020 Classic Blue color matches. But, before let’s see a bit more about the Pantone color of the year 2020 and how to use it in interiors.




Color Trends for 2021 starting from Pantone 2020 Classic Blue

We are now exploring some new color trends for interiors besides Pantone 2020, by starting from it. The idea is to create some new color matches that, starting from Pantone Classic Blue, can identity some other interesting and less predicted colors.

What’s for sure is that we are going towards years of more saturated and bold colors, after many years when pastels and neutral hues were protagonist in the design.

Let’s see together some of them. You will find the complete report, together with many other color inspirations and trends for 2020 and 2021, in our new Trendbook “Color Trends 2020/2021” available by subscribing to our Trend Membership here.
