The Color of the Year 2021, According to Sherwin Williams

Recently, Pantone announced its choice for color of the year 2021, with the colors PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating.

This was kind of a controversy surrounding that decision since it doesn’t look like a traditional fashion couple. Pantone was wise enough to go beyond “the color” because it will lead to endless arguments. Grey may be disappointing to some, but it means the past, resilience, and looking backward, while yellow means future, hope, looking forward.

But for the classical type, Sherwin Williams, the giant paint company, has it’s Color of the year, too. This year the prize went to Urbane Bronze (SW7048).  This warm hue draws from nature for a feeling of relaxation and serenity. It also works well with other biophilic elements including, light-filled spaces and foliage.

For Sherwin Williams, Urbane Bronze is the new neutral color. Its certainly beautiful. Will it make it?
