This past year, Big Chill has been fortunate to work with designer Kim Lewis, who is known as an architect, stylist, and lead designer on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Kim was tapped by Big Chill founder Orion Creamer to create a smart and distinctive color palette for the contemporary Pro Series. To select the bold, bright, distinguished colors for the collection, Lewis drew on inspirations from nature and travel. Included are standout shades for any kitchen reminiscence of vibrant garden vegetables, cabernet grapes, stone in the English Cotswold’s and the breezy feel of the French countryside. “People can relate to colors found in nature and landscapes,” Lewis explains. She especially loves the Basil, Cabernet and Sunflower additions, which open a whole new door in the appliance world. “Basil could fit in so many different moods. It’s an easy green to get along with. Cabernet is so unique and never seen before. Sunflower Yellow is just boldly happy,” she says. “With the trends of white kitchens, offering appliances in different colors is a unique way to break out of the mold, and create character in the kitchen,” she adds. “The Pro series is more for a consumer with a modern taste. This line is bold, sleek and sexy and so are these 12 colors.”
