In a bit of color-filled news, designer Jonathan Adler has teamed with Kohler to create a collection of bath and kitchen sinks in four of his trademark happy-hues. I saw them over the weekend at ICFF; six cast-iron basins are enameled in two shades of blue, a grassy green and a yellow that indeed brightened our still-abysmal weather. An insider tip: This is a limited edition, and will only be available for a year, so if you've got a white kitchen or bath that needs a boost, act fast. us.kohler.com
