Advice abounds for how to apply Pantone’s 2020 color choices to fashion, personal style and the runway. It’s a bit trickier finding good advice as it pertains to Pantone color trends and your home – especially high-quality, luxury custom kitchen design.

From the official Pantone website, regarding the Pantone Spring/Summer 2020 Fashion Color Trend Report:

According to Pantone Color Institute color experts, colors for Spring/Summer 2020 New York express our desire for a sense of the familiar. Friendly and relatable, a palette of colors that conveys a sense of ease. At the same time, in this era of personalized self-expression, this palette of recognized favorites uses the familiar to take some unique twists and turns highlighting elements of humor, modernity and entertainment.

Those are lovely sentiments. Now it’s our job to apply them to the real world – specifically, your real world. How do we take the Pantone 2020 color palettes and bring them seamlessly into the heart of your home, your kitchen? More specifically, which of 2020’s trendiest colors are best suited to have a long-lasting, beautiful effect on your kitchen design?

We’ve selected 8 colors from the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Reports for Spring/Summer 2020 and Autumn/Winter 2020-2021. These 8 colors, in the right hands, will give you an excellent base to develop the color palette for the 2020 new kitchen design of your dreams.

8 PANTONE Colors For Your 2020 Kitchen Design

Classic Blue (PANTONE 19-4052 TCX)

Collection: Spring/Summer 2020 and Autumn/Winter 2020-2021

Pantone 2020 Color of the Year Classic Blue

Naturally, the anchor of this article is Classic Blue, the Pantone 2020 Color of the Year. Reassuring, relaxing and natural, Classic Blue is about as versatile a cool tone as you’re going to find. Check out some of our previous notes on how to apply Classic Blue in your designs.

Brilliant White (PANTONE 11-4001 TCX)

Collection: Spring/Summer 2020

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Brilliant White

The hint of blue undertone to Brilliant White makes it an amazing complementary color to Classic Blue (and most of the colors on this list). Brilliant White is a vibrant standout that feels custom-built for kitchen design in 2020 – fresh, sleek, clean and able to stand on its own in an all-white kitchen. Use with confidence!

Sandstone (PANTONE 16-1328 TCX)

Collection: Autumn/Winter 2020-2021

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Sandstone

Sandstone is a smart, sturdy neutral that reminds us of rich tan stone and lightly stained wood. A great option as a “backbone” in your kitchen design color palette, Sandstone can work just about anywhere – cabinetry, flooring, tile, paint or decor.

Samba (PANTONE 19-1662 TCX)

Collection: Autumn/Winter 2020-2021

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Samba

Looking to spice your 2020 kitchen design up a bit? Samba is a great choice, with its “kick” of deep chili pepper red. While certainly not an “all-over” color, Samba provides punch in the right doses and spaces – tile accents, decor, and more.

Saffron (PANTONE 14-1064 TCX)

Collection: Spring/Summer 2020

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Saffron

Perhaps the sunniest tone of Pantone’s 2020 color offerings, we love Saffron for its cheery disposition. Who wouldn’t love to walk into their kitchen in the morning and be greeted by the warmth of Saffron? From a bold backsplash to smartly-applied paint to dishware and decor, this is a really fun color to play with in your kitchen design!

Sunlight (PANTONE 13-0822 TCX)

Collection: Autumn/Winter 2020-2021

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Sunlight

If you like the warmth of Saffron without all the “pizzazz”, Sunlight may be more your style. A cozier blend of “tan neutral” and “yellow” notes, Sunlight is much more easily paired with some of the other offerings on this list. Applicable as a lead tone in a neutral kitchen or an accent in a bolder one, Sunlight is a pleasant surprise.

Mosaic Blue (PANTONE 18-4528 TCX)

Collection: Spring/Summer 2020

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Mosaic Blue

Mosaic Blue is a bit more specific in its usage as a kitchen design color, but it can pay major dividends in the right hands! This blue-green tone evokes natural themes of the sea and lush forests, and is a stand-apart choice for a beach or nautical-themed kitchen. Do you own a beach home or shore house? Think about Mosaic Blue!

Sleet (PANTONE 16-3916 TCX)

Collection: Autumn/Winter 2020-2021

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Sleet

Every great color design concept needs a sturdy base. We love Sleet for its calm, reliable gray – just dark enough to be supportive, just light enough not to dominate the palette. Sleet is one of those perfect colors for tile, island counter space and furniture. If clean, neutral and sophisticated is your goal, look at Sleet for your 2020 kitchen design.

When Peter Salerno Inc. teamed up with Stratta, the Tile Boutique to create a transitional bath design they called ‘Simple Tranquility’, Peter knew they were creating something special.

The beautiful transitional bathroom was awarded 2nd place nationally by Signature Kitchens and Baths magazine. It was quite an honor (in a season full of them) for Peter Salerno and his team, who also took home two national kitchen design awards from the NKBA during the 2015 KBIS convention in Las Vegas.

‘Simple Tranquility’ is a transitional bathroom in Bergen County, NJ. The cabinets are walnut with an espresso stain from Peter Salerno Inc’s coveted “Mastro Rosolino” (TM) line of cabinets.

The tops are marble from Stone Surfaces in East Rutherford, NJ. The backsplash is glass and porcelain, and the floor is marble tile by Stratta – The Tile Boutique , Wyckoff, NJ. The hardware is polished stainless from Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ. All the fixtures and fittings also came from Hardware Designs, while the sconces and chandelier came from Capitol Lighting in Paramus, NJ.

This gorgeous transitional bath design was truly a team effort, and Peter Salerno certainly shares this award with all parties involved – Stratta, Stone Surfaces, Hardware Designs, Capitol Lighting, and his own team at Peter Salerno Inc.

When PANTONE draws inspiration from food to name a color, it likely belongs in a kitchen design. PANTONE’s renowned Color Matching System is the gold standard of color design schemes for home designers, textile designers, industrial designers, fabric designers & clothiers. the ability to transition a PANTONE color across media (cloth to paper to online to plastic & more) is unparalleled.

With endless color possibilities in the ever-expanding PANTONE universe, where do you even begin to find the perfect colors for your updated kitchen design? We love taking cues from the names PANTONE gives to its colors. When a PANTONE shade’s name reflects something found in your kitchen or pantry, our “spidey senses” go off!

Maybe it’s a simple case of the power of suggestion, but we know the team at PANTONE as a group which acts with purpose. So if we have a choice for a neutral color for our kitchen… well, we’re going to consider Sugar Almond a bit more strongly than Warm Sand.

(Sorry, Warm Sand – you just don’t sound quite as delicious!)

There’s an abundance if trending PANTONE colors with food-inspired names lately, so why don’t we draw a bit of kitchen design inspiration?

Here’s our selection of 8 trendy PANTONE colors with names foodies will love. See if you get inspired to use one (or more) of them in your kitchen!

This World-Class Miele Transitional Kitchen Display Still Turns Heads

This World-Class Miele Transitional Kitchen Display Still Turns Heads

It’s been 4 years since Peter Salerno Inc. & Miele USA teamed up to create a game-changing transitional kitchen design, and it still turns heads.

On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, Peter Salerno Inc. proudly held a debut celebration for its new transitional kitchen showroom display at its gorgeous Wyckoff, NJ showroom. The event was attended by a “who’s who” of the kitchen design, appliance and custom design world.

The transitional kitchen vignette is not only a showcase of Peter Salerno Inc.’s award-winning transitional kitchen design efforts, but of the new, state-of-the-art Miele kitchen appliance line. It is with great pride and excitement that Peter Salerno Inc. and Miele USA share exclusive design photos and information with you!

Peter Salerno Inc. and Miele Transitional Kitchen Design

The Island

The centerpiece of the new transitional kitchen display is a stunning kitchen island, topped with a beautiful counter designed by Galaxy Glass. The thick glass slab is embedded with stainless steel mesh for a gorgeous, clean transitional design feel, and allows the user to opt between a soft white light or color wheel display option.

The kitchen island affords comfortable seating for three on one side and is adorned by statement globe lighting which hangs from the recessed ceiling. The recessed ceiling itself is a beautiful 9-panel design painstakingly decorated with silver leaf, and features seamless custom edge moulding.

The base of the island is an ivory white custom piece by Peter Salerno Inc., featuring the astounding Knock2Open Miele Dishwasher. Simply knock, and the dishwasher automatically opens for you – no fussy latches or slamming doors! The base also includes custom cabinetry work from Peter Salerno Inc.’s Maestro Rosolino line.

The Flooring

The flooring is a beautiful, durable faux-wood concrete which was voted on by you, the readers of Peter Salerno Inc.’s official blog. Wonderful job!

The Backsplash

The backsplash, provided by the world-class artists at Stratta, the Tile Boutique, was also voted on by readers of this blog. A seamless design that appears to be one solid pre-fab piece, it is actually comprised of over 250 meticulously set tiles.

The Feature Wall

In front of the backsplash, 4 glass shelves are mounted in front of LED lighting, which presents the illusion of pure white light streaming from within the shelves. A bold stainless steel range hood design was custom-designed by Peter Salerno Inc. and crafted especially for this transitional kitchen display by the artisans at Rangecraft.

The custom ivory white Maestro Rosolino cabinetry features over a dozen drawers. 6 drawers are push-to-open (to complement the Knock2Open Miele Dishwasher), with 2 more “hidden drawers” which border the Miele range in the form of moulding columns.

The Miele 48″ range and cooktop itself is a wonder of modern technology. It features a conventional range, warming drawer and storage unit, as well as a 6-burner cooktop. The range features a wireless roast probe which communicates directly with the oven. For example, if you want to cook a tenderloin to an internal temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit, simply turn on the oven and set the roast probe to 135. When the internal temperature of the tenderloin reaches the desired temperature, the oven will automatically shut off and alert the user that the roast is ready!

From bread to roasts, sear to bake, the Miele oven features hundreds of customizable settings to suit the needs of every chef, from amateur to professional. The 48″ Miele range also features a built-in speed oven which eliminates the need for a microwave.

The feature wall also includes a new Miele coffee maker that must be experienced to be believed! Below the coffee maker is a combination steam oven which allows user to stack cooking programs and save cooking recipes beforehand, where the user can seamlessly go in and out of cooking and steam functions or even use those functions in conjunction with each other. The combination steam oven also allows user to control the percentage of steam from 0-100% which is unique to Miele.

Each of the Miele appliances showcased in this transitional kitchen design vignette is constructed with the same look and feel- from the construction and materials to the display and functionality. Every detail is methodically crafted to provide a seamless user experience.

We invite you to come see this stunning transitional kitchen design display for yourself at the Peter Salerno Inc. showroom, located at 511 Goffle Road, Wyckoff, New Jersey.

Amazing Home Bar Design: ‘The Eclectic Pub’ Photos + Specs

Amazing Home Bar Design: ‘The Eclectic Pub’ Photos + Specs

Stone. Reclaimed tin. Gorgeous wood. Statement lighting. Spiral staircase. Hold on tight; this home bar design is a jaw-dropper.

‘The Eclectic Pub’ is a world-class custom home bar design from Peter Salerno Inc. – the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century. Complete with custom stonework, one-of-a-kind tin panels and feature shelving you must see to believe, this home bar is the stuff of which dreams are made.

It all starts with the woodwork. Beautifully rich and finished to a radiant ‘nutty’ glow, the wood elements of this home pub are the foundation and backbone of the design. From the flooring to the door trim, the cabinetry to the ceiling to the perimeter of the glass feature wall component, wood provides the feeling of being ‘at home’ that every great bar (even the most luxurious ones) exudes.

And let’s talk about the feature wall. Recessed lighting radiates out from behind an opaque pane of glass, drawing your focus to the glass shelving suspended between the ceiling and counter. It’s a stunning set of glass design elements that seem to hang in mid-air away from the structure of the bar’s wood features. If the wood and stone of this home bar are the skeleton and body, then the feature wall is certainly the jewelry.

A recurring theme in some of Peter Salerno’s best kitchen and bar designs is the used of reclaimed tin. From former bars and speakeasy joints to Route 66 gas stations, Peter sources tin from some of America’s most unique locations for use in his award-winning designs. In this case, reclaimed tin is treated and used in the center panels of the bar and cabinetry elements. Shades of brown, green and gold blend delicately against the woodwork and cabinet handles and finishing hardware.

As if the home bar design itself wasn’t enough, the stonework puts this pub over the top. With recessed sections that act as shelving for premier bottles of wine and liquor, this well-lit stone area also acts as a stairwell for a descending spiral metal staircase.

Cap all these stunning elements off with sturdy brown counters and smart lighting fixtures, and you have a winning ‘Eclectic Pub’ design indeed.

2020 Kitchen Design Trend | Custom White Cabinets

2020 Kitchen Design Trend | Custom White Cabinets

Simple, elegant and timeless – Custom white cabinets are a must-have kitchen design element heading into 2020. With their clean lines and “blank canvas” of color, white cabinets are the perfect backbone for your modern kitchen design. Whether you wish to keep your kitchen design simple or play with bolder elements, white cabinetry provides a reliable anchor for the rest of your kitchen.

We turned to the official Instagram of Peter Salerno Inc. for kitchen cabinet design inspiration. Since 2001, no North American custom kitchen design company has won more awards than Peter Salerno Inc. – for their ingenuity, their personal touches, and their expert craftsmanship. Peter Salerno and his team are renowned for their Maestro Rosolino line of custom cabinetry, and their Instagram features some elegant white cabinet design work.

Peter Salerno Inc.’s white cabinetry designs teach us that simplicity doesn’t have to be simple-minded. Clean lines and an expertly applied layer of white paint provide a delicate canvas upon which to make subtle, effective design choices. We love the interlocking mullions on the glass cabinet doors above – they create an eye-pleasing design while still allowing plenty of sight into the cabinets’ contents.

Obviously, white is a great option when playing with natural light and light fixtures. Adding recessed lighting into white, glass-door cabinets creates an elegant tone, as well as a glow that radiates throughout your kitchen. In a kitchen with plenty of windows and natural light, white cabinetry reflects sunlight (instead of absorbing it and dulling its effects).

Creative mullion design on white, glass-door cabinets is key to exceptional kitchen design in 2020. The flowers carved into the mullions above reflect the birth month of their owner, adding a personal touch to the cabinet design.

The floral white kitchen cabinets shown above sit on either side of a statement range and backsplash. The cabinets are backed by a gray & white subway tile design. As a result, the gray and metallic silver elements of the range, backsplash and subway tile are allowed to shine and ‘pop’, turning a simple color scheme into a dazzling kitchen feature wall.

White doors aren’t restricted to cabinets or glass in today’s modern luxury kitchen designs. Custom molded tin panels are flanked with white on the French doors of the refrigerator shown above, turning a simple appliance into a luxurious statement piece.

That is the beauty of designing kitchen cabinets and storage space with white doors and features – the rest of your design can go virtually anywhere!

Are you in love with white cabinets for 2020 kitchen design? How would you utilize them in your kitchen? We’d love to hear from you in the comments!
