Every year Pantone predicts the future of design, fashion and home décor with its announcement of its bi-annual color report and annual Color of the Year. This year, the international color authority has done something new; it announcedtwo Colors of the Year and we are ready for them!
As a leading manufacturer of premium, vintage-styled kitchen appliances, we have the ability for our retro-inspired products to be custom colored to match Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. Respectively, the nude pink and purple-blue hues were chosen to symbolize balance and tranquility.
Our Northstar collection is well-known for its curves and chrome representing “true-to-era” 1950s design characteristics. In order to parallel the new 2016 Colors of the Year, we use color-matching technology to provide corresponding shades to the sweet, sensible Rose Quartz and cool, subdued Serenity. According to the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eisenman, the two colors reveal the natural harmony between warm, intimate rose and delicate, paradisiacal blue.
“These colors will bring subtle, calming energy to kitchen spaces, whether incorporated into larger appliances such as a range and refrigerator, or as an accent color in a microwave,” says our vice-president of sales and marketing, Tony Dowling. “The custom RAL colors of Light Pink (RAL 3015) and Brilliant Blue (RAL 5007) align with the Pantone colors and are complementary to one another, while also blending well with other, varied palettes.”
In addition to the colors tailored to match the Colors of the Year, the Northstar collection can be customized to suit the other eight hues selected forPantone’s Spring 2016 Color Report, as well as more than 200 other custom color options.
