Solar power

After a year of anxiety, a sunny splash of colour will make you happy. Global colour authority Pantone chose Illuminating yellow as one of their colours of the year for 2021 as a way for the pandemic-weary to inject a little energy into their lives and help us overcome the continuing uncertainty we have all experienced. Perhaps yellow also represents the light at the end of the tunnel. We can hope!
