Fitting Colors of the Year?

Voiced by Amazon Polly


The Pantone colors for 2021 are “Illuminating”  and “Ultimate Gray”!  While Sherwin Williams selects “Urbane Bronze”.


In a year of firsts and the unexpected, I’m not surprised at “colors for 2021”.  

Sherwin Williams and Pantone are making a statement by selecting bold colors.  But buyer beware before you run out and redecorate your home with these colors.  Think about moderation.  Smaller rooms can be overwhelmed by 4 dark and/or darker walls.  Pantone’s “Illuminating” with “Ultimate Gray” may fit well in homes -once again use caution before embracing overuse of unique colors.  The gray family of colors has been quite popular for the last several years.  2021 colors have taken the trend several steps darker.

The easiest way to spruce up a house for sale is with a fresh coat of paint.  Before you select the color of the year check with your Realtor® to ensure you pick a neutral saleable color.
