KitchenAid's classic stand mixers are as enviable as they are beautiful. The popular appliance is already available in over 86 colors, with an assortment of drool-worthy finishes and clever attachments. Now, the brand is adding four new colors in their increasingly popular matte finish line. Avocado Cream and Milkshake will join other food-inspired colors like Hot Sauce and Green Apple. Two additional matte colors, Black Violet and Ink Blue, offer a softer alternative to the insanely-popular all-black stand mixer which was released last month for a limited time.

I have arrived. @kitchenaidusa booth is the very definition of Heaven.

Green is a popular color in 2017 for appliances and kitchen gadgets, but Avocado Cream is more contemporary than the avocado green of our grandmothers' kitchens. The shade is a silky green color that's more earthy than minty. Still, it's neutral enough to work beautifully in a modern kitchen filled with white tiles and stainless steel appliances.The Avocado Green will be the latest option for KitchenAid's Artisan Mini stand mixer line ($400) and will be available to purchase in July.

 

Joining the Artisan Series are Black Violet and Ink Blue. Both shades are so deeply pigmented they almost appear black . The deep hues are highly indulgent and offer an alternative to folks who can't imagine Ocean Drive in their kitchen but still want a hint of personality on their countertops. Both Black Violet and Ink Blue, which is inspired by classic ink blue glaze on white bone china, are available in the Artisan Series 5 Quart stand mixer ($430). Ink Blue will be available in July, and Black Violet will follow shortly after in September.

A second food-inspired color, Milkshake, is an off-white shade that's warmer than the iconic White but still clean enough for a permanent place on your countertop. Milkshake will be available in both the Artisan Series 5 Quart ($430) and Pro 600 Series 6 Quart stand mixer ($570) beginning in July.

"The kitchen is a key place for cooks to play and experiment with favorite new and trending colors," said Jessica McConnell, Senior Manager of Color, Finish, and Material Design for KitchenAid in a statement. "Our ever-expanding small appliance color and finish offerings provides consumers even more freedom to curate and enliven kitchen countertops."
