The 6 Most “Kitchen Design Friendly” PANTONE Colors of Autumn 2019

The PANTONE Autumn & Winter 2019-2020 Color Trend Report is out, and it’s certainly refreshing. PANTONE’s take on Fall 2019 is warmer than usual (we hope that reflects in the weather forecasts, too!), and the time is right to start looking at how these colors and trends reflect on home design – more specifically, design trends for your kitchen.

How can we best apply the PANTONE Autumn/Winter 2019-2020 collection to your kitchen design? Which colors are best suited to transition from the runway to your cabinetry, kitchen island, prep space and tile? What tones have the most potential to turn your kitchen design into a gorgeous space that lasts for years to come?

We’ve singled out 6 colors from this season’s PANTONE Color Trend Report for their visual appeal, versatility, and ability to turn your kitchen from ‘all right’ to ‘AMAZING’!

Do you agree with our color selections? Let us know in the comments below!

The 6 Best PANTONE Fall 2019 Colors for Kitchen Design

1. Bluestone

We’ve been saying for months that blue is the kitchen design color of 2019, and this blue-gray shade is our favorite color for design in the PANTONE Fall 2019 collection. Bluestone is sturdy and versatile, able to be utilized as a primary or complementary design color. We can envision Bluestone in a traditional “Dutch country” style kitchen, or a more transitional design with opulent Swarovski crystals and clean lines. Bluestone pairs brilliantly with any bright neutral, especially our next selection on this list.

2. Vanilla Custard

The PANTONE Autumn/Winter 2019-2020 collection brings the heat, and Vanilla Custard is the warm neutral that brings everything together. It’s hard to find a single color in this season’s collection that doesn’t pair well with Vanilla Custard. Its yellow undertones allow it to serve as a front-and-center neutral tone in a standout transitional kitchen design. If you’re looking for a neutral design color that’s more bold than staid, you can’t do much better than this one.

3. Peach Pink

If PANTONE signals Fall 2019 as a ‘warmer’ season than most autumn collections, we’d better take notice. Peach Pink is a lovely blush tone that doesn’t pull too much focus, and that’s important when using red and orange tones in a kitchen design. It’s a color to be used delicately, for sure, but it’s incredibly pleasing in proper doses. If you’re looking to brighten up your kitchen design, especially in a summer home or a more traditional space, Peach Pink could be a winner for you.

4. Hazel

Of the brown tones in the PANTONE Autumn 2019 collection, Hazel is the warmest and most appealing. Rocky Road and Sugar Almond have their place, for sure, but Hazel offers up the warmth needed to make your neutral and wood tones “pop” in the kitchen. If you’re looking for a color that plays well in transitional kitchen design and warms the space without dominating the landscape, Hazel is a strong option.

5. Paloma

Is Paloma the most aggressive choice? Absolutely not. But it serves an equally important purpose in your kitchen design – a backbone. This light, smoky gray isn’t so dark that it “pulls down” the space, but it’s saturated enough to offer balance and stability. Paloma is a gorgeous option to pair with tones like Bluestone and Vanilla Custard. Try it on your custom cabinets, kitchen island, or backsplash tile for a modern, clean aesthetic.

6. Guacamole

Want a more natural, leafy vibe in your kitchen? Guacamole is a tangy green tone that strays far enough away from conventional “kelly green” and “forest green” to create a conversation starter. As with Peach Pink, you’ll want a smart, experienced kitchen designer to execute Guacamole to its fullest potential in your kitchen, but the rewards far outweigh the cost with a color like this one.
