The days of stark-white toilets, tubs, and sinks dominating bathrooms are over. To celebrate its 150th anniversary, Kohler, the Wisconsin-based manufacturer best known for its plumbing fixtures, is embracing the rainbow. The brand just announced its Heritage Colors campaign, which  invites consumers to vote on their favorite vintage colorways they want to see revived later this year

The six contenders—Spring Green, Lavender, Peachblow, Sunrise, Avocado, and Pink Champagne—were previously only produced between 1927 and 1979. Two winners will be announced by David Kohler and Sophie Donelson—following a panel discussion titled “In Celebration of Color” with Isabel Ladd, Jonathan Adler, and Justina Blakeney at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show on February 1—before making their comeback as part of a limited-edition release this summer. The exclusive launch will include these six best-sellers: Memoirs Two-Piece Concealed Toilet, Memoirs 24-Inch Pedestal Console Table, Artifacts Freestanding Bath, San Souci One-Piece Skirted Toilet, Vox Rectangular Vessel with Deck, and Farmstead Kitchen Sink

While we wait for the big reveal, we’ll be looking back fondly at a few of our favorite colorful bathroom moments inspired by these retro hues.

Think Pink

When it came to designing the kids’ bathroom in their London home, Charlotte and Angus Buchanan of Buchanan Studio doubled down on rosy features with a circa-1960s toilet and sink they scored from the Bold Bathroom Company. Their daughter naturally calls it her “princess bathroom.”

Salvage Your Vision

Going into her New Orleans reno, Breeze Braunschweig didn’t have a concept in mind, but between the Heath Ceramic wall tiles and the turquoise sink she scored from a junkyard, the finished space is a perfectly put-together mashup of old and new.

Soak in Cae-Sal Style

Inspired by her favorite dish of all time (a Caesar salad), chef Molly Baz turned her bathroom into a lettuce-colored oasis that suddenly has us craving veggies.

Make It Twice as Nice 

Within this primarily neutral bathroom palette, matching mirrors turn these sunny side-by-side sinks into twinning jewel boxes that are bound to kick off anyone’s day with a smile.
