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!

Welcome baby girl Olivia Katherine to our design family!

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.

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!

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!

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!
