Le Creuset lovers - have you seen "Coastal Blue?"

Molly James | Feb 18, 2011 06:52 AM

I took a stroll through the Bloomingdale's home store yesterday afternoon and saw they have a new color line in Le Creuset - "Coastal Blue." I was struck by how (IMO) awfully dull the coloration was. To me, it looks like the pots were spray painted with a grayish primer and then the light blue applied for the graduating color effect. The contrast was too great and it just reminded me of an unfinished painted project. The good news is another introduction with the stainless steel knob.

I couldn't find anything on the LC or Bloomie's website about the color, but was able to find several UK shops that carry it. Here's a link if you're interested I think this photo shows the pot color in an attractive fashion, however, it's not what I saw in person.

I'm not looking to add another pot, but it's interesting that LC seems to be adding muted/dull colors instead of brighter colors or glossy finishes. I'm only speaking for myself, but bright colors and glossy enamel provide a pick me up, whereas muted colors have a less than positive effect on my mood.

Since I know that there are many here that look with interest to the introduction of new colors, I thought I'd pass along the information.
