HOPE AND STRENGTH: THIS IS WHAT THE WINNING DUO STANDS FOR
There can only be one. Actually. But sometimes two shades share the winners' podium when the renowned Pantone color institute chooses the color of the year . This is also the case this year, in which a permanent gray and a bright yellow named “Ultimate Gray” and “Illuminating” won .
The fact that it hit these two tones is of course anything but a coincidence.

We can use so much positive vibe in our own four walls. After all, the home will continue to play a major role and remain our central place of well-being.
Here are our color favorites for the sunshine and tips on how to combine them with the colors of the year at home:
# 1 LIKE LIFE IN BLOOM:
Colorful and cheerful: we simply cannot get enough of floral shades in the coming sunny season. They are a reminder in the truest sense of the word of pulsating life and gardens that bloom in spring . Marsala, henna, ash rose or orange: These tones exude cheerfulness, freshness and confidence and thus contribute to a positive attitude towards life.
In addition, they go perfectly with the radiant winning tone "Illuminating". But other shades of yellow such as honey gold and ocher can also be combined well with the colorful flower tones. Together they are bursting with good humor and liveliness and give hope for better times.
# 2 ALL SHADES OF PLANTS:
For some time now, green plants have been an absolute must-have for everyone who wants to bring in their home liveliness and freshness. No wonder that the Pantone range of top colors also includes various shades of green. Whether Rosemary or Cactus - these colors go well with the popular “ Natural Living ” lifestyle , which is about setting up a home that is as close to nature as possible.
# 3 ANYTHING BUT BORING:
As a contrast to the natural green tones and floral flower tones, restrained colors are also coming out big this year. In addition to the winning gray, these are also beige and black. They all act as neutral classics that have a calming effect and can be easily combined with more colorful nuances .
