The Pantone Color of the year 2021 pairs two unique and individualistic colours, Ultimate Grey and Illuminating Yellow, symbolising our newfound understanding of our interdependence as a global community. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, the union is one of strength and positivity. It encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly, aptly representing the somber yet hopeful mood of all of us as we step into 2021.
Illuminating with Ultimate Grey is a bold combination, and can easily be brought into the interiors with upholstery and home accessories like rugs and cushions, infusing vitality and liveliness. A grey textured interior finish, with yellow pop accents as colored door and windows, crockery, furniture, and wall art convey a warm and welcoming message. For a more dramatic interior, the yellow can be used as wall and floor finishes, highlighted by grey furnishings, further layered with indoor planters, rich jewel tones and other tonal colors.

With every unlock we are seeing green shoots of recovery and strongly believe that this will lead to resurgence in 2021.
With safety restrictions in place couples will continue to opt for smaller and intimate weddings and choose to have smaller functions like mehendi, haldi and sangeet at home. Hygiene and sanitisation stations will be seen as a must-have at every corner of the venue possibly with some added elements like customised masks and sanitisers. Another noticeable change with shrunken guest lists will be exotic short haul destination weddings at an increased price per pax finding its place as a part of the consideration deck of to-be-weds, with hills or palaces emerging as most preferred options. Consumers will use this as an opportunity to get away from the hustle bustle of city life and bond with their inner circle to make their D-Day memorable.
