Celebrating Pantone’s Colors of the Year

Hello December – time for holiday preparation and cheer (and lots of cooking on our BlueStar ranges and ovens) plus of course the excitement of anticipation as we await the announcement about the Color of the Year for 2016.

Well, the wait is over!!  On Thursday, the color experts at Pantone have surprised us again with the announcement that not 1 but 2 colors will take the spotlight.  We are thrilled with their selection of these very livable, warm colors: A hearty hello to:

Rose Quartz

“Warmer embracing rose tone”

Plus, Serenity

“Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us”

According to Pantone, joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace, according to Pantone.

We love both of these hues both separately and as a pair and even showcased variations of these colors in our booth at last year’s Architectural Digest Home Design Show.

As a leader in color and customization in appliances, we offer our products in over 750+ “standard” colors and finishes plus the ability to order custom colors.  This year’s Colors of the Year will be available as custom colors.  Build your dream range with our interactive Build Your Own BlueStar tool.

Check out our range decked out in Serenity:

If you would instead like to use a standard RAL, we recommend going with Light Pink (RAL 3015) for the Rose Quartz hue and Pigeon Blue (RAL 5014) for the blue shade.

Afraid to commit to a trendy color for the body of the range or oven?  Consider going with colored knobs, which of course can be changed easily.

At the upcoming Kitchen and Bath Show / International Builder’s Show in Las Vegas, we will be showcasing a custom range that features both of these colors – the range doors and body will be in Serenity with knobs in Rose Quartz.  Please stop by booth C2615 and see us there!
