Color Inspiration: Illuminating Yellow & Ultimate Grey

The colors of the year for 2021 are simultaneously invigorating and soothing. While having 2 colors of the year took some getting used to, we find that the soothing qualities of Ultimate Grey pair nicely with the vibrant energy of Illuminating Yellow. The more we sit with the idea, the more we like how these colors are a perfect example of different elements coming together to support one another. Maybe Pantone has a greater message about unity for all of us in 2021.

If you’ve shopped with Woman Shops World before, you know how much we love using color to encourage and inspire a mood. Of course, color is beautiful and fun. But did you know that each color has its own vibrational energy that impacts your feelings, mood, and thoughts?

You might have read some of our other blogs about color, where we discuss the properties and powers of different colors.
Did you know the following about yellow and grey?

More about the Illuminating Yellow:

Yellow is the color of inspiration, pleasure, happiness, and the element of air. Wear and work with yellow when you need to get inspired, when you want to bring more pleasure and joy into your life, and when you want to manifest travel!
Pantone says that Illuminating Yellow is aspirational, and gives us hope (something that we could all probably use a bit of as we head into 2021!)

More about Ultimate Grey:

Grey is practical and implies a solid foundation. Energetically, it is tied to respect for wisdom, experience, and intelligence.  According to Pantone, 

"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."
