Color lovers understand that even the hue of your appliances can make a big difference in your space. And if you're a maximalist when it comes to your kitchen, we've got good news for you.


KitchenAid unveiled its 2021 color of the year, Honey — and it is bright, saturated, and bold. "A warm and rich hue with a golden-orange undertone, the new color radiates positivity and warmth," the company said in a press release. It's a seriously cheery option if you love a dash of color in your kitchen.

The company says that Honey is also designed to highlight "the kitchen as the place to come together with others to collaborate, create and share food and community." It's all about taking a break from your screen and getting together for some IRL connection. Time to explore some new baking recipes.
