Fall 2017: 201 Magazine Features Gorgeous Kitchen Design Photos

Once again, (201) Magazine sets the bar extraordinarily high with a stunning kitchen design layout.

The latest Home Issue of (201) Magazine (for Fall 2017) features an article titled “For a Rising Culinary Creator”. The photography in the article is courtesy of Peter Rymwid Architectural Photography, and the kitchen was designed by Peter Salerno Inc. of Wyckoff, New Jersey.

The kitchen contractor is Anthony Vero of DiVero Electric and Remodeling in Mahwah, New Jersey.

We love the exposed beams and stone work leading into the kitchen (the photo on the right), with gorgeous archway moulding framing your view into the modern kitchen design. Peter Rymwid’s expert photography of the Peter Salerno Inc. design perfectly captures the custom range hood fixture over the kitchen island that serves as the focal point of the kitchen design.

Once inside the kitchen, the “wishbone” design of the island seating really captures the imagination. As with much 2017 transitional design, neutrals and whites act as the featured color palette of the design. The crisp white of the chairs and custom Maestro Rosolino cabinetry.

We also love the oversized exposed spice rack on the wall, and the beautiful La Cornue rotisserie wall feature that’s mounted several feet from it.

Other featured appliances come from Wolf, Sub-Zero, Miele, and U-Line (the wine refrigerators).

“The best part of the project was the collaboration with the owners,” Peter Salerno told (201) Magazine in the article. “They are artistic, and were not afraid to go with something edgy.”

The flow from the backsplash to the base of the kitchen island to the flooring really ties this beautiful kitchen design together.

The Cooler Colors of Fall 2017, According to Pantone

Pantone Fall 2017 Color Collections Include These Cooler Shades

Beautiful blues and purples. The cooler shades of the color spectrum aren’t necessarily the dominant ones in Pantone’s dual Fall 2017 color collections. (That distinction belongs to the neutral palette.)

But the set of cool colors in the Pantone Fall 2017 New York and London color collections are engaging nonetheless. We’ve discussed the versatility of Navy Peony (which anchors both collections) at length in previous articles, but that’s just the beginning. Two airy shades of blue, a mysterious blue-green and a regal shade of purple make this season’s “cool tones” attention-worthy.

The blues and purples in Pantone’s Fall 2017 color collections lack a bit of cohesion, so don’t expect them all to work in the same design palette. (The reds and pinks are much better for that.) But with a wide variety of cooler tones comes the ability to play and expand your options.

From Shaded Spruce to Blue Bell, Marina to Royal Lilac, these five colors in Pantone Fall 2017 New York and London collections each present their own strengths and opportunities.

How will you choose to design with them? At the bottom of this article, VOTE on your favorite blue/purple shade from the Pantone Fall 2017 color collections!

6 Alluring Neutrals That Define 2017 Home Design

The 6 Pantone Neutral Colors That Dominate 2017 Design

Greenery might be the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year, and warm natural tones of pink and blue may stretch across the year in design. But in the story of the design year that is 2017, the main characters are all neutrals, and they’re playing for keeps.

Neutral tones have long been thought of as complementary colors – especially in home design palettes. 2017 has proven that taupes, browns, grays and off-whites can be the stars of your color design.

This trend doesn’t just apply to solid and conventional colors. Wood, tile, appliance, and muted metallic elements of your home design can also work within the “neutral” palette to great effect. Rather than dominant accent walls with loud colors, 2017 has let the neutral shades do the talking, leaving the brighter tones “pop” in accessories and decor.

With so many neutrals to choose from, which are the right choices for your next home design project? Obviously, we’d suggest turning to a world-renowned custom kitchen design and bath design team for assistance. But if you want a jumping off point, this is the article for you!

Below, you will find a list of the six core neutrals listed by Pantone in their Spring 2017 and Fall 2017 color reports. While great shades like Navy Peony could technically qualify, we’re opting to stay within the traditional definition of neutral colors.

From a myriad of brown and tan shades to one beautifully versatile gray, chances are you’ll find inspiration (and solutions) for your next design project within the six neutral colors on the list. As always, Pantone is an internationally recognized color matching system, so finding these colors virtually anywhere won’t be an issue!

Leave a comment and let us know which neutral tone you love the most!

6 Alluring Neutrals That Define 2017 Home Design (Pantone)

1. Hazelnut (Pantone 14-1315)

2. Butterum (Pantone 16-1341)

3. Neutral Gray (Pantone 17-4402)

4. Otter (Pantone 18-1018)

5. Autumn Maple (Pantone 17-1145)

6. Toast (Pantone 16-1331)

Pantone London Fall 2017 Color Combinations That Sizzle

Pantone London Fall 2017 Color Combinations That Sizzle

As the summer of 2017 winds down, we’ve been taking a look at Pantone’s Fall 2017 color reports. This year, Pantone divided its autumn color reports into London and New York, signifying slight variations in runway and home design trends on each side of the Atlantic Ocean.

You’ve seen the full collection of New York colors for Fall 2017. Now, let’s take a deeper look into the London color report from Pantone for the Fall of 2017.

Which colors are the most versatile? Which are the hardest to potentially work with? And which color combinations – both classic and bold – could be winners in your personal style and/or home design?

Pantone London Fall 2017: The MVP

Navy Peony

What can you say about the only color to appear on BOTH of Pantone’s Fall 2017 color reports (for New York and London)? The most versatile blue we’ve seen in years on Pantone reports, Navy Peony (Pantone 19-4029) can do anything it’s asked.

Need a stabilizing neutral? What about a feature tone in home design, or an anchor shade in your wardrobe? Navy Peony can truly cover it all.

Pantone London Fall 2017: The Wild Cards

Copper Tan

We like to think of Copper Tan as less of a “real color” and more of a nod to metallics as a real option in home design. Copper and brass fixtures, appliances, and decor are brilliant additions to your 2017 home design strategy, and Copper Tan (Pantone 16-1338) is Pantone’s nod to that trend.

Pantone Copper Tan: Fall 2017 London

Lemon Curry

Lemon Curry (Pantone 15-0751) is a head-scratcher at first. Staid, conservative designers will instantly avoid the mustard tone as garish or “too unusual”. But Lemon Curry is for the bold, and if properly utilized with a few color combinations (see below), can deliver dramatic results.

Pantone Lemon Curry: Fall 2017 London

Pantone London Fall 2017 Color Combinations: The Classic

Blue Bell and Toast

One of the most versatile color combinations available in Pantone’s London Fall 2017 color palette, the airiness of Blue Bell and the warm sturdiness of Toast combine for brilliant effect in home design, wardrobe, and basically anywhere. Think “blue skies and warm sand” – this color combination will keep your mind “on the beach” as the months get cooler.

Primrose Pink and Otter

A dark brown neutral and a faint blushing pink equal a beautiful blend of colors. Primrose Pink and Otter work brilliantly in fashion and in decor, especially if you’re trying to create an inviting, youthful vibe.

Lemon Curry and Navy Peony

Let this somewhat nautical blend grow on you, and you’ll realize how naturally Lemon Curry and Navy Peony flow together. Perhaps more a wardrobe play than a home design scheme, a mustard-yellow top and classic denim pants make for a head-turning fall 2017 look.

Pantone London Fall 2017 Color Combinations: The Daring

Golden Olive and Royal Lilac

A muted green and a vibrant purple provide a “natural” feel to autumn 2017 design. Golden Olive keeps the trend of “natural greens in 2017” fresh, while Royal Lilac evokes a field of fresh flowers.

Copper Tan and Navy Peony

Don’t think of Copper Tan and Navy Peony as the “only two colors” in a home design. Plant a very muted neutral between these two and watch the possibilities unfold. Utilize the copper tone of brass kitchen fixtures, a custom range hood or copper appliances alongside a steady navy color in cookware, range/oven, and furniture.

Lemon Curry and Flame Scarlet

Not for the faint of heart, Lemon Curry and Flame Scarlet is a color combination reserved for head-turners only! If you want a “va-voom” factor in your fall wardrobe, why not go for broke with this “scarlet and gold” approach? If your sitting room is a basic white or off-white, adding pops of these two colors in your decor will add a bold flare of color.

Top 5 ‘London’ Shades from Pantone Fall 2017 Color Report

Top 5 ‘London’ Shades from Pantone Fall 2017 Color Report

The Pantone Fall 2017 Color Report is split into 2 series: the New York Collection, which we profiled in an earlier column, and the London Collection. With 19 colors (one repeat between the 2 collections) between the New York and London Pantone series, there is a wide variety of options from which to draw design inspiration in the upcoming season.

The reason for the 2 separate collections is the “individuality” noted by Pantone experts in the New York and London Fashion Week color palettes, respectively. As Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, notes on their website:

“[I]ndividuality is evident and we are seeing a distinct difference between the shows in the two cities in the way these same colors are being combined.”

So what sets the London Color Report apart from New York? Pantone notes a distinct blend of “strong classics” and “unpredictable shades” in their Fall 2017 London collection.

Some of the London shades closely mirror those in the New York collection (compare Flame Scarlet and Grenadine, Toast and Butterum, and Primrose Pink and Ballet Slipper), while others step apart entirely. As with the New York series, we enjoy the Pantone Fall 2017 London Color Report for its reliance on some great brown-based neutrals and a handful of strong warm tones.

The London collection sits a bit closer to overall 2017 color trends, including natural greens and a pretty intriguing metallic tone (more on that later). There’s also one strong tone that appears in both the London and New York Pantone collections.

Out of the 10 colors featured in the Pantone Fall 2017 London Color Report, we’ve narrowed the field to our 5 favorite shades. Our selections are based on colors which exhibit versatility and lend themselves well to home design, particularly kitchen and bath design.

Pantone Fall 2017 London Color Report: Our 5 Favorites

1. Navy Peony

How could we not lead with the most popular, sturdy and versatile color of Fall 2017? Navy Peony is an anchor shade in both the New York and London Pantone color reports for the autumn of 2017. Navy Peony has the ability to operate as a featured color and a neutral, offering a great option if you’re tired of browns, whites and off-whites in your design arsenal.

2. Otter

We’re really into Otter Brown, a grayish-brown neutral with a ton of possibilities. Otter is a great secondary color design option to offset a bright shade in your design, or an intriguing woodsy option for flooring, counter space, or even an accent wall in a natural-themed room.

3. Copper Tan

Copper is one of our favorite feature metallic shades in 2017 design trends, and Copper Tan stood out to us immediately as an intriguing way to present a “metallic tone” in pure color. This warm, brassy reddish-brown is lighter than most tones in its family and can be used to great effect as a featured color – either in accessories or main design elements.

4. Royal Lilac

A stately and timeless shade of purple, Royal Lilac is perfect for Fall 2017 designers who want a touch of reliability in their design scheme. From accent walls to tile, decor to furniture, Royal Lilac is a great color that manages to beautifully bridge the gap between eye-popping and relaxing.

Pantone Royal Lilac: Fall 2017 London

5. Lemon Curry

Easily our most audacious choice from the Pantone Fall 2017 London Color Series, Lemon Curry is a take-no-prisoners hue that borrows from the “natural” trend in 2017 color design. Unlike Greenery or Golden Lime, however, Lemon Curry is an unyielding mustard color that draws the eye without being overly garish. Try it as a secondary color in your kitchen design!

4 Great Pantone Fall 2017 Colors for Home Design

4 Great Pantone Fall 2017 Colors for Home Design

It’s no surprise that 3 of our 4 top picks for home design in the Pantone Fall 2017 collection are neutral tones. 

We’ve been touting neutrals as “the new dominant tones” in home design for the better part of 2017, and this fall’s collection is no exception. In recent articles, we’ve surveyed the entire Pantone Fall 2017 color palette (for “New York”), and given you five great color combinations to inspire your autumn designs.

When it comes to home design, we have the luxury of leaning on our parent company Peter Salerno Inc. for advice and direction. Since 2002, Peter Salerno Inc. is the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design firm. Their blend of “old-world” craftsmanship and innovative state-of-the-art design, as well as their ability to create traditional and transitional award-winning designs, has made Peter Salerno Inc. a must-watch design firm for over 20 years.

As we perused recent kitchen and bath design photos from Peter Salerno Inc. projects, we came across a theme we loved. Like any great designer, Peter Salerno does not mimic trends – rather, he is inspired by them. As such, you won’t see a Peter Salerno Inc. design “coated” with the colors of the season. Instead, the Pantone Fall 2017 collection serves as inspiration for a holistic design approach.

Notes of Neutral Gray, Marina, Butterum and Autumn Maple weave their way through the design photos below, serving as parts of each design but never the whole.

We absolutely adore Neutral Gray for its versatility and its lack of “gray drabness”. It’s an eye-popping neutral tone that works beautifully in appliances, backsplash tile, flooring, wall paint, and decor accessories alike. The same holds true for the brown neutrals Butterum and Autumn Maple.

For a pop of color, we leaned on Marina (Pantone 17-4041), a bright oceanic blue that sits in line with other recent blue Pantone selections like Riverside and Niagara – albeit much warmer than both of those color options.

Enjoy our picks (and accompanying design photos from Peter Salerno Inc.) for the best Pantone Fall 2017 colors for home design!

Pantone Fall 2017 New York Color Series: VOTE on 5 Great Pairings

Pantone Fall 2017 New York Color Series: 5 Great Pairings

In our previous article, we previewed the “New York” set of colors in the Pantone Fall 2017 series.

Themes of individuality, warmth and classic shades permeate the collection. Bold colors like Grenadine and Marina jump out between bright neutrals Butterum and Autumn Maple, while the gorgeous Navy Peony begs to work with intriguing shades like Ballet Slipper and Golden Lime.

For those who missed it, here is the full list of 10 colors in the Pantone Fall 2017 New York series:

  • PANTONE 17-1558 Grenadine
  • PANTONE 19-1725 Tawny Port
  • PANTONE 13-2808 Ballet Slipper
  • PANTONE 16-1341 Butterum
  • PANTONE 19-4029 Navy Peony
  • PANTONE 17-4402 Neutral Gray
  • PANTONE 19-4524 Shaded Spruce
  • PANTONE 16-0543 Golden Lime
  • PANTONE 17-4041 Marina
  • PANTONE 17-1145 Autumn Maple

It’s a balanced yet unconventional mix of 3 reds, three blues, a green and 3 neutral/gray tones. The balance provided by Neutral Gray and the brown neutrals give design enthusiasts plenty of color combinations to play with, and the rich deeper tones like Tawny Port and Shaded Spruce hearken back to the jewel tones that spiced up Pantone’s Fall 2016 color palette.

But which color combinations did we immediately fall in love with for the fall of 2017? We’ve pored over the possibilities and come up with a list of 5 color tandems that we think will liven up your autumn design.

We played a bit of a game with the color combinations to make it more interesting: we had to use all 10 colors in the Fall 2017 New York palette, and each color could only be used once. So we ended up with 5 unique color combinations that showcased the entire color collection.

Of course, some design choices (especially home design, kitchen and bath design) are much more difficult choices than others – so make sure you consult an award-winning expert before you jump into those decisions!

Here is our list of 5 favorite color combinations from the Pantone Fall 2017 New York Series.
