Marinoni Summer Mood

Summertime is the season of fresh colors and we’ve had fun in matching some Marinoni design creations with four palettes. We hope these mood boards will help you living a perfect pinkbluegreen or light blue summer day!

The first color is PINK. It can be more strong and turn red such as strawberries, or be lighter as a grapefruit is. You can live a pink summer day with the Marinoni pewter and alabaster-white glass cup, fresh fruit served in the alabaster-white glass dessert plate, and a tasty raspberry cake displayed on  the pewter and ceramic cake stand. Aren’t they perfect for a party?

BLUE is the color of the Ocean and of  the deep sea. Fish and a starfish, blue and white stripes, an octopus featured on a ceramic plate and the  Marinoni pewter plain charger. Can you feel the blue mood? In this mood board you also find the pickle forks, the Marinoni pewter goblet, and one of our pewter hurricanes, That’s the ideal combination for a dinner setting in your seaside house, isn’t it?

GREEN mood is both fresh and full of energy. Green is the color of nature and  natural motifs and accents are what you’ll see in this mood board. A lime icicle could refresh your day and improve your mood. In this mood board you find a salad set, a table knife and a fork belonging to the Marinoni pewter cutlery collection, one of our pewter and ceramic dinner plates, and the pewter and white ceramic round bowl with beaded rim. Are you ready for a picnic now? 

Azzurro is the Italian word for the LIGHT BLUE color and it is quite different from the one we use for the blue color. Indeed, the moods inspired by blue and light blue are very different from each other. Azzurro is the color of the sky in a summer afternoon. With the light blue palette we matched the Marinoni pewter watering can, the pewter and ceramic coffee pot, and a couple of pewter and glass storage jars. Light blue is a stress-reducing color, are you feeling lighthearted and relaxed?

Is your favorite color one of these? Do you want us to create a mood board for another summer color? Just ask and we'll do it! Have a nice summer with Marinoni.

EXPO 2015 - Food and Marinoni Tableware

EXPO is the 2015 italian event and it is about food. Our best seller category is tableware, so we tried to match some of our pewter creations to the special food creations of the most famous Chefs.

Let's start with Daniel Humn, Chef and co-owner of the Eleven Madison Park restaurant in New York. In this first board we associated his portrait and one of his recipes with the Marinoni pewter and alabaster-white glass dinner plate. Ingredients are Lobster, Fennel, Orange and Persimmon.

The second Chef is Éric FréchonMeilleur Ouvrier de France and three stars in the Michelin Guide. His rice in a egg is here served in the Marinoni pewter egg-cup. Éric Fréchon shares a weekly recipe on his website, why don't you try to replicate it?

In the third board you see the staff of the Piora Restaurant. The course in this picture has been pinned from here, and we associated it with the Marinoni pewter and ceramic charger. You should really take a look at the Tasting Menu of the Piora Restaurant... it looks delicious!

The "risotto" you see in the following board is made by Massimo Bottura at Osteria Francescana, in Modena, Italy. His restaurant has got 12 tables only, so you'd better book it in advance! We chose the black and white to associate the risotto with our classic pewter round large plate, but you can also see Bottura's colored recipes here.

Finally, the flower food by Thomas Herman, a danish Chef who was the first to start playing with traditional danish home cooking recipes, and turn them in to haute cuisine. This light and colored flower course has been associated with a delicately beaded rim Marinoni pewter and ceramic dinner plate.

We found many more Chefs and delicious recipes, you can find them in our Pinterest Board EXPO MILANO 2015. Buon appetito!
