From the Publisher
"With even the smallest tasks, Carter has the same approach to homeowners that I do with cooks in the kitchen. His advice and designs are creative, helpful, attainable, and inspiring, AND he even calls the kitchen the hub of the house. That's my kind of guy! . . . It is so important to feel at home in your own home. With Carter's thoughtful tips featured throughout and his Million Dollar Perspective, readers will have the tools to transform their home into their own space. You know you'll find me in the kitchen!" --From the Foreword by Rachael Ray
