    Say Hello to Minion Yellow, Pantone’s Newest (and Happiest) Color

    What do singer Pharrell Williams, the movie franchise Despicable Me and global color authority Pantone have in common? Well, if you’ve seen the first two films in the series, then you probably know that Williams wrote and sang several tracks for the popular animated flicks (including the toe-tapping, Grammy Award–winning song “Happy” from Despicable Me 2).

    But how does Pantone fit into the picture, you ask? Look to the launch of Pantone’s newest color, Minion Yellow, a sunny shade inspired by and named after the lovable, kooky creatures from the series, who will return to the silver screen later this year in a Despicable Me spin-off movie, Minions...more

    Pantone Picks an Uplifting Combo for Its Color of the Year 2021

    For only the second time since its first Color of the Year announcement 20 years ago, the color standards management company Pantone Color Institute has unveiled not one but two colors. Illuminating, a bright sunshine yellow, joins forces with neutral, grounding Ultimate Gray as Pantone’s dual selections for 2021 Color of the Year.

    Leatrice Eiseman, the institute’s executive director, says Pantone selected these colors to “highlight how different elements come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting, conveying the idea that it’s not about one color or one person, it’s about more than one.” ... more

    The Case for Simplifying Christmas Decorations

    “After I sort through things, you and Torey [my sister] and the kids may take whatever you want. I’m donating the rest,” she said.
    “That’s great,” I said, not needing to think about it even for a moment. Still, I was curious. “What prompted this?” She sighed. “Taking it all down about did me in last year, and I realized even the fun part, the decorating, had become a chore.” ... more

    Artfully Minimalist Fireplaces

    When it comes to fireboxes, homeowners seem to be gravitating to fire ribbons — gas flames that are wide but shallow, appearing literally as ribbons of fire. The look is contemporary but minimalist, with no faux logs. Instead flames rise from rock, sand or glass. The idea isn’t to provide the illusion of a wood-burning fireplace, just to add the warmth and beauty of a flickering flame...more

    Living Rooms That Rethink the Fireplace Wall

    “Typically we layer windows with window treatments,” Mackie says. “On this project we all agreed that the raw natural light drenching the space made such an impact on the experience of the room.
