"Good design should electrify all the senses...especially in the kitchen. When you enter a room, you should be inspired visually, transcended by aromas and tastes, jazzed by the sound and comforted by textures," says Architectural Designer Kim Lewis. Lewis' work ranges from designs for celebrities' homes to pro bono assignments for Touch A Life Foundation in West Africa, to lead designer for the popular TV Show, ABC's " Extreme Makeover: Home Edition".
A fan of tactile visuals, Lewis designed a hammered copper back splash for singer/songwriter Jewel's kitchen – this texture perfectly complemented the 'Homestead Hip' vibe of the ranch. For a rustic, cozy look, Lewis also loves the BlueStar " Exterior Copper Vein" texture for a kitchen range or for a more subtle dimension, Lewis suggests the new " River" Texture.
Perfect Blend of Design and Performance
"Families are cooking more at home and my residential clients are looking for kitchen products that are more professional chef grade yet are designed to make an impact in the room. House floor plans are keeping the kitchen more open to the living spaces, so quality and style count more for appliances now," says Lewis.BlueStar boasts a 130-year-heritage of marrying form and function.
