Pantone Colors 2017 ~ Ballet Slipper & Butterum

August 15, 2017

By Tab Byrum

Today we continue looking at the 10 colors Pantone pegged as being the ones to watch for Fall 2017, today we are looking at Ballet Slipper and Butterum. First up is pink but not just any pink, this Fall it’s Ballet Slipper which Pantone describes as, “Descended from the Red family but with a softer touch, Ballet Slipper is always flattering and reminiscent of the rosy glow of health.” Ballet Slipper is a beautiful soft pink that will make anyone glow who’s wearing it and looks beautiful in our homes, whether it’s as an accent color or an entire room. I just left a client’s home, she is expecting a new baby girl any minute and the nursery is top to bottom beautiful pink. The second color today is Butterum, a warm welcoming color that’s described as “This snug, warming, and toasty shade is evocative of drinking a glass of Butterrum by a roaring fire on a cool autumn evening.” Both of these colors make a statement on their own or look gorgeous paired with other colors like black, navy, and white. Check out the images I’m sharing today and try a little Ballet Slipper or Butterum. Enjoy!!! (above via & via)

Ballet Slipper


Sofas done in a strong color like Ballet Slipper are always fun and make a statement. (via)

A color like Ballet Slipper is also a great accent color in a rug, adds that little something extra without going over the top. (via)

Ballet Slipper can be a very feminine color as seen in this Victorian chair done in a pink fabric with a Damask pattern. (via)

I love the idea of using Ballet Slipper as the color for a front door, it looks great on white and would look amazing on a gray house. (via)

What a great use of color in a bathroom, also notice the blue grout in the floor tiles and the rustic ladder reflected in the mirror. (via)



I always say you can’t go wrong with a neutral colored sofa and Butterum is a great color to go with. Look how gorgeous this Mid-Century sofa is in Butterum leather. (via)

This rug gives you a good look at how a color like Butterum pairs beautifully with white, adds color to a room but also keeps it light. (via)

Of course, Butterum is a great color for accessories. Whether the accessories are in your home or on your arm, you can’t go wrong with a strong neutral piece. (via)

Butterum is a very rich looking color, especially when you layer the same color on in different ways. Here we see it in actress Julianne Moore’s home on the wall, on the chair, on the side table and echoed in the art on the wall. (via)

A color like Butterum can come in many different forms here we see it in the leather of the chair and the wood of the fireplace mantel and coffee table. (via & via)

I hope you’ve found some inspiration in Ballet Slipper and Butterum today, check back with us tomorrow as we look at two more colors and an update to a much-loved ride from the 1960’s. Have a great day!!!

Words are my own.
