Introducing ‘Green With Envy’ – BlueStar’s 2022 Color of the Year. Deeply inspired by nature, this timeless tone represents prosperity, power, and harmony. For this year’s color we have collaborated with interior designer Alison Victoria, the star of HGTV’s “Windy City Rehab”, “Kitchen Crashers” and “Rock the Block”, who is known for infusing color and timeless designs into her projects.
While varying shades of soft green have been cited as the “it” color for 2022, the appeal our selection, “Green With Envy” (RAL 6007), is its versatility. It is essentially a new neutral that pairs well with wood tones, crisp or creamy whites or bolder tones like deep blues, creating an optimistic, fresh space. The color can be used across many different materials and can be added to any BlueStar® cooking, refrigeration or ventilation products as a statement piece or as a pop of color on knobs.
Victoria has designed over 300 kitchens, and one of her top design tips is to keep major pieces, like appliances, neutral. “Your kitchen should be timeless. Rather than be dated by a Color of the Year classification, ‘Green with Envy’, especially when paired with antique or brushed brass trim, will still look great 10 or 20 years from now,” she says.
“Appliances are the hardscape of the kitchen and not something you want to change out frequently, so they need to be layerable,” she says. “They are a big investment — you don’t want to get sick of them after 10 years.” Victoria recommends directing creativity into more affordable and easier to replace areas, like a backsplash or faucet, cabinet hardware or mixing in trends with paint, accessories, area rugs or artwork. “With BlueStar’s endless customization options, you also can easily change the color of the knobs with each season if you like!”
Alison has been a long-time fan of BlueStar® customization options, choosing it for both her personal home and her clients. As a leader in bespoke, handcrafted kitchen appliances, BlueStar® offers professional-style products in over 1,000 colors and finishes, as well as custom colors and 10 metal trims. Color and customization are two important parts of BlueStar’s proud 140+ year history of U.S. manufacturing.
