NEW YORK-In line with the announcement of Pantone’s Colors of the Year for 2016, both Keurig Green Mountain and KitchenAid have launched products sporting the two colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Keurig’s 2.0 K250 brewer and exclusively designed Travel Mug are now available in both colors. In addition, KitchenAid has debuted two new stand mixers, one in guava glaze, a warm pink tone that parallels Rose Quartz, and the other in cornflower blue, which parallels Serenity. The cornflower blue stand mixer is available currently, while the guava glaze product will be on the market next July.

A Keurig statement noted that the company has partnered with Pantone for the past five years, incorporating the color institute’s latest trend colors into its line of hot brewing systems. “The Keurig and Pantone Color Institute partnership is a way for us to connect with our consumers on a level beyond offering all of the beverages they love,” said Ranjan Damodar, vice president of Keurig hot systems.

Color has also been a part of the “huge success story” behind the KitchenAid stand mixer line, said Beth Robinson, senior manager of brand experience for KitchenAid. “As a brand committed to combining high performance with eye-catching design, we’re constantly refreshing both our engineering and our color palette to stay ahead of the curve,” Robinson said.
