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.

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!
