All-white bathrooms are so last year. Just ask Kohler, the manufacturer that became one of the first major companies to sell kitchen and bathroom appliances in a range of vibrant colors.

In celebration of the Wisconsin-based company’s 150th anniversary, Kohler has decided to revive two of their six pastel colors as part of its Heritage Colors campaign — and they want consumers to pick which ones.

The six contenders were previously produced between 1927 and 1979. You can learn more about each color by checking out their official descriptions below:

  • Pink Champagne “Our bubbly and festive Pink Champagne was released as a celebration of Kohler’s 100th anniversary in 1973.”
  • Peachblow — “An original pastel from 1934, Peachblow was a bold complement to common browns and taupes of the time.”
  • Spring Green — “Inspired by the blue-green waters of a cool northern spring, Spring Green was one of Kohler’s first colors.”
  • Avocado — “Described in a 1967 Kohler catalog as the ‘go-with-everything’ green, Avocado defined an entire era of colorful originals.”
  • Sunrise — ”Feel the glowing warmth of Sunrise from 1953, available at the time in kitchen and bathroom fixtures.”
  • Lavender — “In 1927, Kohler introduced the ‘charm of color’ with six original pastels, including this soothing shade of lavender.”

To cast your vote, simply visit this page and make your selections. The winners will be announced at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show on February 1, and will officially make their comeback in a limited-edition collection this summer.

The collection will include six popular Kohler products: Artifacts Freestanding Bath, Farmstead Kitchen Sink, Memoirs Two-Piece Concealed Toilet, Memoirs 24-Inch Pedastel Console Table, San Souci One-Piece Skirted Toilet, and Vox Rectangular Vessel with Deck.

That’s right — you could own an avocado-colored bath, a pink champagne-colored sink, or even a lavender toilet before the year is up. Dream big, friends!
