The Big Chill

Last weekend we had alot of fun in Boulder, Colorado.   Let’s just say if I didn’t live in Austin or somewhere by the beach, I’d be moving to Boulder or Denver.  If you haven’t visited either or haven’t been in awhile I highly recommend visiting again.  Always so much to do in the beautiful outdoors , great restaurants , shopping, etc..
While there I was thrilled to finally tour the very cool Big Chill Appliance headquarters.
If you aren’t familiar with this company, then you need to check out their website for loads of eye candy.
The staff was super kind and generous, taking my family on a fun tour of the factory.

I first fell in love with their appliances when visiting someone’s beach house in Port Aransas, Texas a few years ago.
I knew one day I wanted to either own one or use on a design project!  First of all the style is retro but the colors are so fun.  I had thought the colors above were about the few that you could order.  However, when touring the factory, we found out there’s tons of color options and you can even customize your color!  Designers or clients can send them a swatch of fabric or a paint sample , and they will color match it!

They do have a few styles of appliances.  One that I love is the PRO series, such as this stove:

And so in love with the larger 48″ stove!:
Or the Retropolitan series in a fun pattern or a solid:
And you can order the top in one color, the bottom another.  Pretty cool for a gameroom right?
Another fun size for a gameroom is this smaller mid size.  Definitely larger than a dorm room size fridge with plenty of statement style.

Look at all the pretties lined up , ready to be shipped.  Yes, they ship anywhere!

Here’s the many options of colors you can order for  these cuties:

I did gather a bunch of  metal samples and will have them at the studio if you’d like to see a swatch in person.
Or you can always contact them, and they’ll ship one to you.
In other news, we’re still trying to finalize a contract on the sale of our home. 
 However, always taking back ups!  If you’re looking to buy a new home in the Austin, Texas area, check out our  listing here.
Make it a great weekend!
