If you’re like us, you may be a little mesmerized by the myriad colors in Le Creuset’s top-quality enamel cast iron cookware. The recent introduction of Artichaut, a brilliant, subtle bluish-green, might make it that much harder to choose your signature color. The good news is that you don’t have to pick just one. In fact, many of Le Creuset’s colorways might work even better when paired with others. Even if you’re the type of person who knows and loves their color, hear us out…

Since everyone’s taste is a little different, we created two looks in our studio kitchen: a Scandi-inspired motif using White and Oyster (that’s it above) and a vibrant, eclectic mix, including the new Artichaut.

In the first kitchen, White cookware, dishware, and containers — Le Creuset makes a lot more than just pots and pans! — pair beautifully with pieces in Oyster, a pearly gray with a little bit of movement. Black and white cups play up the contrast, while wood pieces add a little bit of warmth. 

In the second kitchen, newcomer Artichaut is the star of the show. Pairing it with the marine blue of Caribbean may be a little unexpected, but it really helps to bring out Artichaut’s bluish tones. An eclectic mix of glassware, plants, and wood pieces is great inspiration for easily adding warmth and texture to your existing kitchen.

Of course, not everyone has open shelving, and not everyone has the budget for a whole kitchen full of new cookware. But one or two pieces, perhaps on the stove or in a place of pride on the counter, can be a great way to add color and character to your kitchen. And if you’re loving the potential Artichaut may bring to your kitchen, you’ll also want to check out Nectar. It’s a cheery deep yellow that Le Creuset just introduced, and we gave it the same see-it-in-action treatment here.

Regardless of what color becomes your signature style, you know that with Le Creuset’s famous quality you’ll be enjoying it for a long, long time.
