Furniture Colour Schemes - Pantone Colour of the Year 2021

If there was ever a year where we needed a strong positive colour in our lives, this would be it, so it was very welcome news indeed to hear that yellow has been chosen as one of the two pantone colours for 2021. The second chosen colour is grey, a neutral which provides the perfect contrast to the more vibrant yellow. This is only the second time in 22 years that two colours have been chosen by Pantone to represent a year.

Grey is described as a dependable and practical colour, whilst yellow inspires feelings of happiness, optimism and positivity. Both of these choices look to be an excellent reflection of the attributes that we will all need to draw on as we start to navigate the challenges of this new year.

Many of us have already been embracing the sophisticated grey and monochrome palette which has been an overriding interior trend of the last decade. Grey is the perfect neutral which can be easily incorporated into your luxury home interior design scheme. As well as becoming a hugely popular trend for walls and floors, grey toned statement pieces can create a chic addition to all spaces within your home and they also make the perfect partnership with a myriad of other colours including the bolder blues and greens both of which are currently proving to be favourable decor choices.

Kent Bedside Table | Frato

Grey is synonymous with calm and is often chosen for bedroom furniture, a perfect marriage with crisp white linen bed sheets. These Kent bedside tables are minimal and sophisticated yet full of subtle details. The box and drawers are crafted with a high gloss wood veneer and lined with gorgeous soft suede. 

Whilst the grey palette is one that many of us already feel confident in adopting, yellow can feel like much more of a daunting colour to try and incorporate into your home. If you are hesitant to make a bolder statement on walls or with larger pieces of furniture, especially when looking towards luxury furniture brands, we would suggest that accent colour accessory pieces will equip you with the perfect answer. 

Accent colour throws and cushions can create a strong visual statement in both living spaces and bedrooms. Adding mustard tones to both traditional and modern luxury furniture will ensure you keep that high end feel.
