Balcony Press Kitchen Centric Design Book - DEGIULIOBK
KITCHEN CENTRIC puts a new spin on the kitchen design book offering readers
an art book, a fantasy book and even a bit of a field guide. Internationally
known kitchen designer Mick De Giulio takes readers on a guided tour through
18 of his favorite kitchen projects in urban lofts, suburban homes, manor houses,
mountain retreats, and an early 20th-century barn.
The tour of delicious photographs (shot specifically for the book by Hedrich
Blessing Photographers) rolls through these kitchens, one after the next, like
short films. Words are few, but critical and a bit quirky like an excerpt out
of 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 becoming more central to American
homes and home life than ever before.
Mick De Giulio learned the craft of wood-working at his father’s shop.
Some 39 years later, he is now recognized internationally. His clients include
CEOs, celebrities, and the otherwise well-to-do. De Giulio’s widely-published
work has been featured on HGTV, and CNN. His design for Siematic is in the house
of the vice president in Washington DC.
