Start With Small Bursts of Color

For those eager to experiment with color in the kitchen, but not quite ready for a major makeover, there are plenty of bold and beautiful small kitchen appliances on the market in hues designed to inspire any home chef, like bright reds and pastel greens. SMEG sells a variety of cheery, retro-inspired small appliances that liven up kitchen countertops, like toasters, citrus juicers, tea kettles and blenders. Read on to see how to incorporate this new breed of appliances in shades like robin’s egg blue, citron yellow and persimmon into your space.

Get Inspired by Seasonal Hues

There’s something very fun about waking up to orange appliances that just pop when you walk into the kitchen, like the ranges and refrigerators from BlueStar, which believe it or not are available in more than 750 colors. The company recently debuted seasonal palettes, adding even more color choices, like the four new hues introduced as part of the Autumn Abundance palette. Among the new colors are persimmon (yes, orange), bluefish, spelt and turmeric.

Buttercup Yellow Is Far From Mellow

In case you missed it, this year’s Emmy Awards were all about yellow, so you’ll be decidedly fashion-forward when you freshen up your kitchen with Northstar’s retro-inspired appliances, including ranges, refrigerators and dishwashers in buttercup yellow. This soft and cheerful color is both elegant and inviting. The hue pairs perfectly with pure white cabinets and a brightly-colored backsplash that adds an extra zing to your kitchen.

Celebrate 100 Years of a Classic Kitchen Icon

It’s hard to believe that KitchenAid has been in our homes for nearly 100 years. To celebrate their anniversary in 2019, the company recently debuted a brand-new color, Misty Blue. Inspired by KitchenAid’s century-old heritage, the classic, soft blue color is evocative of one of the first stand mixers they ever introduced. The limited edition stand mixer in Misty Blue is now available for purchase. A freestanding range in the same color will be introduced later in the fall.

What's Old is New Again

Olive green is so much of a throwback color that it’s once again popular (back in the '70s, this color that we all remember was called fresh avocado). SMEG has brought back this color in its vibrant, new collection of Portofino ranges and hoods designed to brighten up kitchen spaces. The color blends harmoniously with both stainless steel fixtures and verdant houseplants set on countertops. Soft kitchen lighting further adds to the natural appeal of the green appliances.

Freshen Up With a Classic Robin's Egg Blue

If you’ve been on a quest to find the perfect robin’s egg blue for your kitchen, look no further than the fun, retro-styled appliances, including fridges and ranges, even microwaves, from Northstar in this truly swoon-worthy color. Paired with classic white cabinets and a cheery backsplash in a variety of blue hues, it’s hard not be happy in this delightful kitchen. Now this is the perfect way to start the day.

Let Small Appliances Brighten Your Morning

Technivorm’s Moccamaster has been widely applauded and considered by some to be the coffee maker you shouldn’t even consider living without (despite the $300+ price tag). The Moccamaster needs six minutes to brew a full carafe, just right for those who need their coffee as soon as possible (like, right now). The coffee maker comes in more than a dozen wake-you-up colors, like red metallic, grape and turquoise, each practically guaranteed to brighten your day.

Pastels Evoke Feelings of Calm, Relaxation

Colorful appliances designed to brighten up a space don’t necessarily need to be in bold, jewel tones. They can also be soft and muted, evoking calm and relaxation, like this dual-fuel or gas range from ILVE in pastel green. Home chefs can choose appliances in more than 200 colors thanks to ILVE’s custom color program, which includes a wide range of shades from lemon yellow to cobalt blue to tomato red.

Be On Trend With Citron Yellow

Adding a pop of citron yellow to your kitchen is very on trend. It’s also an easy way to liven up a space that’s used more often than any other room in the house. This bright yellow (and adorably retro) fridge from SMEG is a bold and welcome addition to any kitchen. Deep blue walls and cabinets make this stunning hue the center of attention from the moment you walk in the room.

Liven Up an All-White Kitchen With a Sophisticated Hue

An all-white kitchen is simply begging for a splash of sophisticated color, like navy or burgundy, and sometimes a pop from a light fixture or coffee maker just won’t do. Fortunately, the sleek double oven range from Verona is up to the task, providing a lively focal point for your kitchen, and a stylish one that guests can’t help but admire.
