As always, please read through to the end :). Not sure why there seems to be a “meh” response to the Pantone Colors of the Year 2021. I love the yellow and the gray — individually and together. You can see in the image below that I already own both colors and had the eureka moment of putting it all together. Thank you, Pantone. You can read the philosophy and psychology behind these colors, if you care to: Pantone 2021.
I went on a Pinterest binge to find the yellow-gray combination and found plenty of images for my Pinterest Board: Gray and Yellow Color Combo . Below are a few of the pins. I love to see where the image came from, so if you go to the board, do click on the link for the source of these images. Although, the original source of most images on Pinterest is really a moot point.
Pinned images: are you getting inspired yet? Come on, go look at your closet, fabric stash and home decor. Where can you have fun with these two colors?
Here’s a link to a Houston Chronicle article about fabulous, local street art. Local Artistic Endeavors. Just so happened that artist Francesca Fuchs decided that illuminating yellow was a good combo with the gray concrete of highway underpass columns. Thanks to the Chronicle, the artist and the staff photographer for this image — they have no idea I’m using it in a sewing column.
Guys, I keep finding the gray/yellow combo! What can I say, on a recent Lucille Ball sitcom binge on Hulu, here’s what she wore on an episode — vintage inspiration from the 1960s.
Whew! At the end of a doozy of a year, I am looking forward to a happier 2021. Friends, I am wishing you health and happiness. My heartfelt condolences to families of approximately 333,000 departed Americans lost to the virus in 2020. I still cannot get my head wrapped around that catastrophic number.
Take care of yourself and yours. Go sew up a storm.
