Kitchen Design Ideas With Pantone Spring 2020 Colors

As we stated in another recent article, the best thing about Pantone color trend reports is designing with them! With that in mind, why don’t we start taking a look at how the best kitchen designers in the world are drawing inspiration from the Pantone Spring 2020 fashion color trend report.

With 2020 Pantone Color of the Year Classic Blue leading the charge, Spring 2020 provides a refreshing and diverse array of Pantone colors. From the alluring heat of Flame Scarlet to the deep purple of Grape Compote, it’s hard to recall a more diverse color palette than Pantone’s Spring 2020 in recent memory.

That being said… we’re starting with the classics.

Classic Blue – a dependent, sturdy tone. Sunlight – a blushing yellow/tan that borders on neutral. Brilliant White – a radiant white with a blue undertone. Ash – a rock-solid medium gray. Lark – a versatile and warm tan neutral.

Let’s see what award-winning kitchen and bath design firm Peter Salerno Inc. can do with these fashionable Spring 2020 colors in mind.

Note: An original article on this gorgeous transitional kitchen design was posted here on September 9, 2019. Since then, the design has become a reality, with more and more reveals happening on Peter Salerno Inc.’s social media as the weeks pass. We wanted to keep you updated, and flash back to the original installation article – which has some amazing videos and photos! Enjoy!

— Original 9/19/2019 article content —

The team at Peter Salerno Inc. employed a massive boom to install a world-class luxury glass countertop in a high-rise kitchen overlooking Manhattan. The videos must be seen to be believed!

Peter Salerno Inc. is the most award-winning American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century, with awards from prestigious organizations like the NKBA, Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Signature Kitchens & Baths. For this particular kitchen design, the task was at once simple and complex. The simple part: installing a fabulous kitchen counter from Galaxy Glass & Stone.

The hard part? Getting that luxurious, hand-crafted counter to a high-rise apartment overlooking the gorgeous skyline of Manhattan.

Team members from Peter Salerno Inc. and Galaxy Glass & Stone decided to hoist the countertop using the assistance of a massive boom crane, delicately lifting the counter up the side of the luxury apartment building. From there, the crew carefully brought the counter inside the apartment, and completed the kitchen installation.

The result was well worth the effort. The clients now have a one-of-a-kind conversation piece as the centerpiece of their kitchen design!

The beautiful countertop is laced with metal, then topped with glass for an industrial, transitional look. The counter blends nicely with the custom range hood on the kitchen’s feature wall, and plays well against the rich brown cabinetry, drawers, and kitchen island base.

Peter Salerno’s personal trademarks abound in this kitchen design. From the recessed soffit above the kitchen island to the clean, neutral color scheme, this transitional kitchen provides eye-popping features and design elements that transcend simple trends. It’s important to have a kitchen design that takes current design trends and implements them in a way that becomes timeless.

Making a Luxury Kitchen Feel Personal With Custom Design

Making a Luxury Kitchen Feel Personal With Custom Design

There are so many ways to make kitchen design feel luxurious. But there are only a handful of ways to make luxury kitchen design feel personal to YOU. If your forever kitchen doesn’t feel like your forever kitchen, then what’s the point?

True luxury starts and ends with you. What you place value on is a question only you can answer – the same should hold true of your dream kitchen design. It’s why the truly elite kitchen design companies start their design process with questions, not suggestions. “Cookie cutter” high-end kitchen design is great for flipping houses or looking just like your neighbor down the street. But if you want a truly standout kitchen design that speaks to your life, your loves and your definition of luxury, then personalized custom design features are crucial to your kitchen.

Hiring a world-class custom kitchen and bath designer like Peter Salerno is a great way to ensure your home kitchen design is both elegant and personally distinctive. The “new” trend of personalizing luxury kitchen design is a staple of Peter Salerno Inc.’s vision since 1997. Peter’s own home kitchen is even adorned with hand-painted floral arrangements on each of his custom cabinets – one to signify the birth month of each of his family members.

In a recent luxury kitchen design feature on Instagram, Peter Salerno Inc. outlined a recent kitchen design project in which the homeowner worked hand-in-hand with Peter Salerno to create a truly unique, luxury masterpiece of a home kitchen.

The design started by incorporating furniture pieces, screens and vintage items to be converted into portions of the luxury kitchen design. (For example, look above to the beautiful mantle that became part of this one-of-a-kind custom range hood!) By centering the design around the clients, their desires, needs, and what they found to be aesthetically beautiful, Peter Salerno and his team were able to begin construction on a kitchen design that was both marvelous and guaranteed to be impossible to duplicate.

We are in love with the custom cabinetry in this kitchen design – especially considering they weren’t cabinets to begin with at all! The original blue screens featuring ornate elephant patterns were carefully crafted into front panels of new, high-end custom kitchen cabinets, creating a series of pieces throughout the kitchen that were both unique and personal to the homeowners.

“Making a kitchen completely personal is something Peter Salerno Inc. is known for,” Peter Salerno Inc.’s Instagram remarks – and the photos above are no exception. Peter envisioned a new use for a classic book shelf, transforming it into a beautiful server for this showstopping kitchen. Add in the incredible custom island sink, statement pendant lighting and dazzling turquoise soffit feature, and you have a custom, luxurious kitchen design that speaks directly to the heart of its owners.

Isn’t it your turn to transform your home’s kitchen into your forever kitchen, that’s both luxurious and personal to you? Talk to an expert.

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 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

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 Salerno family celebrates the new transitional kitchen showroom vignette.

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.
