KItchen Aid "Blue Willow" color: have you seen it? Need opinions.

Hey! I'm hoping to upgrade, this month (rebate time) to a larger, more powerful mixer (my old kitchenaid is the 325 watt model) so I can make more bread at once without burning out the motor. I like the larger bowl, too.

I live in a rural area and don't have any way to see the models in person. I'm interested in the KitchenAid Professional 5 Plus Series and was going to go with the Empire red, which I have seen, as the "cobalt" looks rather drab, to me. THEN I clicked on the Amazon links and saw Blue Willow! Wow...on my computer, this appears to be much closer to what I think of as "cobalt"--probably incorrectly; my artist daughter would laugh--as a brighter, lighter, more cheery blue: close to Swedish blue, or even CNN political blue <g>....

My kitchen is primarily in old Fiestaware colors: sunny yellow, bright red, jadite green, BUT I don't really care for the dark, dark fiesta blue...and as a result I've got more pure royal blue.

Have you seen this in person? Is it a pure, clear blue....or muddy? Can you compare it to something? I'd be very grateful. Thanks.
