The Quest for Relaxation and Comfort Is the Influence for Pratt & Lambert Paints’ 2021 Color of the Year

CLEVELAND –January 6, 2021 – As change and uncertainty continue to color the lives of consumers, Pratt & Lambert® Paints is delivering the relaxation and comfort they crave with its 2021 Color Trends and Color of the Year. The brand is bringing calming sophistication into the home with its selection of the shadowed, floral green called “Contemplative” as its 2021 Color of the Year.

An industry leader known for exceptional products and uncompromising colors, Pratt & Lambert’s entire 2021 Color Trends Collection is a nod to the increasing desire for relaxing and comfortable spaces for working, learning, dining and unwinding from daily pressures. The brand continuously observes global lifestyle trends from culture, media, fashion, design, food and technology to curate a palette of forward-thinking colors and a single distinguished color of the year.

“Our consumers are seeking style, sophistication, practicality and comfort as they look to transform their spaces for their new daily needs,” said Ashley Banbury, NCIDQ, senior color designer for Pratt & Lambert Paints. “This year, we have curated a palette that is refined, relaxing and stylistically eclectic, giving us a much-needed sense of coziness and sanctuary.”

In its collection of 20 colors that will define the year to come, Contemplative (420F) stands out as the pinnacle of relaxed sophistication. Inspired by the desire to bring greenery into the home, this moody green shade is both striking to the eye and reflective of the healing powers of nature. Whether it’s used as an immersive, all-over color on interiors or exteriors or as a subtle yet dramatic accent on furnishings, cabinetry or trim, Contemplative brings a neutral tone to a space in an unexpected way.

The entire 2021 Color Trends Collection speaks to the ever-evolving home. Shades are comfortable and calming while remaining sophisticated and flexible to create mood-boosting spaces. The unique mix-and-match approach invites the do-it-for-me consumer and the professional painter to discover more beautiful options than ever. To get them started, the Pratt & Lambert brand’s 2021 Color Trends brochure provides three on-trend sample color combinations that elevate the spaces that are the focal points of today’s home. They include:

• Colors to Relocate Your Office and craft a home office space where you feel productive, with the Pratt & Lambert brand’s Moody Indigo (309E), Mineral Blue (211G) and Whitewisp (422A). Accent the trio with Midnight (409G) and Sandalwood (327B).

• Colors to Reconnect with Heart by rethinking the heart of the home and the traditional gathering spot―the kitchen. Choose the Pratt & Lambert grouping of Bleached Pebble (424A), North Hampton (318E), Cedar Mill (420B) and Whitewisp (422A).

“Today’s home has become the hub for all things: our office, gym, restaurant, entertainment and social space,” said Cindy Mansfield, brand manager for Pratt & Lambert Paints. “All 20 colors we’ve selected for the coming year follow the ‘Colors that Relax and Comfort’ theme, inspiring consumers in their pursuit to find at-home spaces for so many of the activities they enjoy, where they can reconnect, reflect and rediscover a contemplative state of mind.”
