Overview

A beautiful, large-format follow-up to House Beautiful's Home Book.
 
Kitchens big and small, old fashioned and coolly modern, stylish and inviting: House Beautiful presents the ultimate designs for the most loved and used room in the house. Some of the country's finest designers usher you through the kitchens they created--often their own--explaining how they arrived at their decorating choices and showcasing eye-catching options. The styles range from “Farm Nouveau” to quintessential Scandinavian to a bold, bright “Rhapsody in Blue.” “Stalking the Look” sections help you source everything from lamps to unique appliances, and breakout sessions focus on special issues, such as planning, color consults, and energy efficiency.
 
Includes kitchens designed for Jonathan Adler; Jeff Lewis (star of Bravo's Flipping Out); Carole Lalli, designer and former editor-in-chief of Food & Wine magazine; James Radin, who consulted on Diane Keaton's envy-inducing kitchen in the film Something's Gotta Give; and Food Network host and “The Barefoot Contessa” cookbook author Ina Garten.
