Pantone’s Colours of the Year for 2021

Pantone has announced not just one, but two colours of the year for 2021 – Ultimate Grey and Illuminating. It’s only the second time in two decades that they’ve opted for two colours and, given 2020, that’s not too surprising.

Picture from Pantone

As the above shows, Ultimate Grey is quite a standard grey whereas Illuminating is a happy, sunshine yellow tone. Pantone wanted the message of these two colours to be ‘strength and hopefulness’, with Illuminating being a colour to symbolise uplifting and Ultimate Grey being one to symbolise enduring.

It’s a great message on the whole and we love how well these two colours compliment each other.

In The Garden With Lucy

One of the positives to have come out of the current situation is that those of us lucky enough to have a garden or access to a green space are really appreciating the benefits of a bit of “nature therapy”. It has a very calming effect on me and makes me smile to see the flowers still blooming and the new shoots of Spring continuing to come through. In the garden with Lucy is inspired by some of the little gems that Mother Nature is sharing with us, with a little Christy magic along the way.​

I’m not bad at growing things and Heather our Senior Designer is brilliant at painting things, so together we are bringing you the best of what is blooming in my garden this week. ​​

The beautiful Pasque flower
The beautiful Pasque flower

This amazing chap is the Pasque flower, so named because it flowers around Easter, ‘pasque’ comes from the word ‘paschal’ meaning ‘of Easter’. This year it was bang on time! Its stunning rich purple petals and bright yellow centre make it a joy to see, especially when bathed in the glorious sunshine we’ve been having. Heather has picked up on its exuberant colours and its beautiful feathery foliage.​​
