Pantone’s Color of the Year has long predicted and influenced interior design trends—2016’s Rose Quartz is almost certainly to thank for the explosion of all things Millennial pink. This year, Pantone knew we needed a little something extra after surviving 2020 and announced two colors as their 2021 picks: the steely Ultimate Gray and the sunshine hued Illuminating.

“Practical and rock solid but at the same time warm and optimistic, the union of Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating is one of strength and positivity,” read the announcement. “It is a story of color that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.”

If you could use that feeling of a silver lining around a cloud in your home, here are a few ways to incorporate Pantone’s Colors of the Year 2021.

1) Weeping Flower Shower Curtain
