Pantone Color of the Year 2021

21 Jan

For products featured, see below.

If you haven’t already heard, the Pantone colors of the year for 2021 are Ultimate Gray and Illuminating (yellow).  We are absolutely in love with this inspiring combination that reflects a bright future and a sense of strength.

“As people look for ways to fortify themselves with energy, clarity, and hope to overcome the continuing uncertainty, spirited and emboldening shades satisfy our quest for vitality. PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power. PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation. The colors of pebbles on the beach and natural elements whose weathered appearance highlights an ability to stand the test of time, Ultimate Gray quietly assures, encouraging feelings of composure, steadiness and resilience,” according to the Pantone.com website.

This energized color combination can be incorporated into home decor, fashion and more for a much needed pick-me-up.  You can add a colorful notepad to your desk, maybe a yellow planter or a gray and yellow throw to brighten up your space!  You can always find  inspiration on our Pinterest boards as well.

How do you see these colors in your life in 2021?

2020 Holiday Photo Card Ideas during COVID

16 Nov

2020 Holiday Photo Card Ideas

It’s that time of year when we start planning holiday cards.  2020 hasn’t proven to be very photo-worthy between trips being canceled and so many special events being postponed.  If you are planning on sending a holiday photo card, we have a few ideas that may help inspire you design your own.

 

Since we all have to wear masks, why not make it part of your holiday card?  It’s a fun way to capture the feeling of the year as well as a great way to remember 2020.  Card shown:  Let It Snow Flat Holiday Photo Card.

 

From Zoom meetings to online classrooms, you can capture the year with snapshots of your everyday life.  Card shown: Zoom Call Flat Holiday Photo Card.

 

With everyone being told to stay at home, a beautiful photo outside in nature speaks volumes this year.  A simple, sweet picture has more meaning as we’ve slowed down to appreciate the quieter moments.  Card shown: Merry Everything Vertical Holiday Photo Card.

 

If this year really threw you for a loop (and honestly – that would include everyone!), have some fun with a silly picture that can find the humor this holiday season.  Card shown: Foil Happy Holidays Flat Photo Cards.

 

Speaking of humor, have a LOT of fun like our Tastemaker Trae Bodge did with her holiday card.  She kept the mood light and fun this year.  Card shown: Colorful Bordered Holiday Photo Card.

What kind of holiday card do you plan on doing this year?

XO,
