The Perfect Pink Colors for Your 2017 Baby Girl’s Nursery

The Perfect Pink Colors for Your 2017 Baby Girl’s Nursery

Welcome to the world (and our family), Olivia Katherine!

Olivia is the beautiful first child to Peter Salerno Inc. design team member Nadya and her husband Yury. At just over one month old, this precious baby girl is already showing a ton of personality – and a real talent of posing for the camera. See for yourself!

Of course, the birth of any child is reason enough to celebrate. But here at Design Your Lifestyle, we’re taking the opportunity to tie in Fall 2017 design to this magical moment. After all, there are some perfect colors in the Pantone Fall 2017 color collection for a baby girl’s nursery!

Of course, the rulebook is out the window when it comes to gender and color design. But if you’re expecting a baby girl and want to take the traditional approach, then soft pink hues are the way to go! And luckily for us, Pantone’s two Fall 2017 color palettes (New York and London) each have a practically perfect pink for your nursery design.

We’ve highlighted each shade of pink in the Pantone Fall 2017 collection below, as well as one warm, cozy neutral to help you balance your design.

Again, congratulations to Nadya and Yury on the birth of beautiful Olivia Katherine – and we hope that you and your own little girl fall in love with these chic and cozy design colors for a girl’s nursery in 2017!

2017’s Perfect Pantone Pinks for a Baby Girl’s Nursery

Primrose Pink
Primrose Pink is a “barely there” shade of pink that may appear off-white from a distance. Upon closer inspection, viewers and designers will find a delicate, faint hue that is inviting without ever being overwhelming. Primrose Pink is a beautiful touch to accents, full wall paint, and furniture.

Primrose Pink (Pantone 12-2904 TCX).

Ballet Slipper
Ballet Slipper is slightly warmer than Primrose Pink, and the name absolutely matches the color. Perfect for full wall paint, an accent wall, or half wall paint (over a chair rail or wainscoting), this blushing pink reminds us of rose quartz.
Ballet Slipper (Pantone 13-2808 TCX):

The Perfectly Paired Neutral: Butterum
Butterum is just warm enough to be the perfect neutral accompaniment to Fall 2017’s delicate Pantone pinks. A bit brighter than other Fall 2017 brown neutrals (like Toast and Otter), Butterum is a great choice for light wood-toned accents, chair rails and wainscoting, and decor accessories.
Pair Butterum (Pantone 16-1341) with any light pink!

July 23rd is National Parents’ Day, and that’s starting to mean more and more in our office as the years go by.

After all, there are now FOUR generations of Salernos involved in the life of our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc. – the most award-winning North American kitchen and bath design firm of this century.

It all started with the “Maestro” himself, Rosolino Salerno (Peter’s father). Rosolino worked tirelessly to become a master cabinetmaker and craftsman in Sicily before coming to the United States to start his family. Rosolino’s son Peter grew up in his father’s workshop and soon developed a love for woodwork, fine craftsmanship and world-class design.

After Peter Salerno’s tour of duty as an ensign in the United States Navy, he came home to begin a design career of his own – and did he ever.

Since 2002, no custom kitchen and bath design firm has been more awarded or lauded than Peter Salerno Inc. Peter and his wife Tracy have created a legacy of kitchen and bath design that has made Peter’s father proud. All the while, Rosolino has kept a watchful, expert eye over his son’s business, and his knowledge and expertise has been invaluable to Peter’s business.

To the delight of Peter and the Peter Salerno Inc. family, both of his children (Anthony and Gabrielle) became part of the family business, as a third generation of Salernos entered the custom kitchen and bath design industry.

Gabrielle has become an invaluable part of the daily business at Peter Salerno Inc., managing clients, orders, and presenting a warm, friendly face to everyone who enters their showroom. Anthony has become a craftsman and knife designer (EDGES custom cutlery), and was recently named to the prestigious NKBA 25 Under 25 list.

In a continuation of family blessings, both Anthony and Gabrielle have welcomed baby girls into the family! Anthony and his wife Eve brought Jesse Caren Salerno into the world, and Jesse was soon followed by Brielle Nova Mayer, daughter of Gabrielle and her husband Brian Mayer.

Professional success is wonderful, but nothing will ever be more important than the bonds, traditions and love of family. Peter Salerno is overjoyed to be surrounded by family in both his personal and professional lives, and takes special pride in this year’s Parents’ Day – as it is an opportunity to celebrate his parents, his children, his wife, and his two grandchildren.

Welcome Baby Brielle to Our Design Family!

Last week, our design family got a bit bigger!

Peter Salerno Inc. (our parent company) is an award-winning custom kitchen and bath design company, proud to span three generations of the Salerno family. On June 29, 2017, the newest member of theĀ fourth generation came into the world.

Peter and Tracy Salerno’s daughter Gabrielle and her husband Brian welcomed baby Brielle Nova Mayer to the family at 1:09 a.m. on June 29th. Brielle was 18.5 inches long and weighed 6 pounds, 5 ounces. Gabrielle’s labor reportedly took less than an hour, so we know that Brielle was incredibly anxious to be a part of the world!

Brian and Gabrielle Mayer are first-time parents who are overjoyed with Brielle’s arrival. This marks the second granddaughter for Peter and Tracy Salerno; the beautiful Jesse Caren Salerno was born to Anthony and Eve Salerno just under 2 years ago.

Baby Brielle is healthy and resting at home with her mommy and daddy, and early pictures highlight her big smile.

We couldn’t be happier with our early July 4th “present” here at Design Your Lifestyle, and are proud to share the first pictures of the newest baby girl to our extended family!
