Kitchen Centric puts a new spin on the typical kitchen design book by offering readers a book that is part art book, part fantasy, and part field guide. Internationally known kitchen designer Mick De Giulio takes readers on a guided tour through eighteen of his favorite kitchen projects in urban lofts, suburban homes, manor houses, mountain retreats, and an early twentieth-century barn. Delicious photographs roll through these kitchens, one after the next, like short films. Words are few, but critical if a bit quirky, like excerpts from De Giulio's own designer's journal. He takes his audience behind the scenes, explaining his challenges, his thinking, his choices, his process, and ultimately, his belief that kitchens are more central to American homes than ever before.

From the Author:

When I look at the kitchens in this book, I see my clients before anything else. Clients design their own kitchen, whether they know it or not. People feed me clues, and they may be as tangible as a photograph or as vague as a word or feeling. One client told me she wanted her kitchen to be breezy and elegant, like the feeling she had at Villa D'Este on Lake Como in Italy, where men dress up for breakfast. Another client showed me a bowl she bought in Positano, Italy. She loved the colors and the feel of it.
 
With that data and some measurements, my design process begins, and it can be similarly amorphous. I do not believe in hard-and-fast rules (other than the law of function, because a kitchen has to work), just as I do not believe in following stylistic trends. The best kitchens defy labels and have their own personality and are beautiful no matter what the style.

What I do keep in my mind's eye are certain guiding principles - or tenets - of good design. Over the years, I have established seven of them, seven overriding ideas that I have found to be important to this process of creating something very special.

From the Back Cover:

"Mick De Giulio rethinks everything from the refrigerator door to the kitchen sink."
  - Lily Barberio and Chris Quinlan, Food & Wine

"Whether you cook or order in, you will want a de Giulio kitchen - locals boast about them the same way they do their collections of fine art."
  - Samantha Brooks, Robb Report

"De Giulio sees space a little differently than the rest of us do, which is why he's one of the country's leading innovators in kitchen design....equally fresh, classic, and inventive."
  - Amy Albert, Bon Appétit
