I drink a lot of coffee and as a result I own a lot of Bodum products (it’s a disease, I swear) and I LOVE the color of this tea kettle! The color is in no way related to any of the colors in any part of my apartment, and I’d have to make sure that it doesn’t clash with my hypothetical future collection of bright yellow Le Creuset, but it is just so happy and cheerful. It’s a remake of Bodum’s 1986 tea kettle, designed by Ettore Sottass.

I was electronically flipping through Real Simple’s kitchen organization tips when I cam across this picture and almost died.
First of all, who actually has that much Le Creuset??? Second of all, I want that much Le Creuset. Which of course immediately led to an internal monologue about what color I should start collecting. It went something like: “Red is so classic, but then everyone does red Le Creuset and do I really want to decorate my entire kitchen around red pots and pans? Because I’m not sure that I want red to feature prominently in my future kitchen’s color palette but then committing to another color seems like such a risk because I’ll have to live with it for the rest of my life and I don’t want to change colors in fifteen years and then have a random rainbow of Le Creuset products…” You get the idea.
In any case, I decided to consult the Le Creuset website and discovered that they have the cutest color profiles. After much debate I think I’m going to go with yellow. It’s cheerful and bright and it reminds me of my childhood bedroom walls.
