Overview

As society has evolved, so has the kitchen, and today, it is very much the center of the home.

Kitchen Living takes a fresh look at the heart of the home, infusing it with innovative ideas for storage, decoration, furniture, table settings, and more. Whether your style is Tuscan Farmhouse or Laboratory Chic, Elizabeth Hilliard provides you with a wealth of practical and aesthetic choices for color, lighting, and flooring. With more than 150 stylish color photos, this is an outstanding guide to enhancing the way we live—in the kitchen.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rather than a kitchen planning book, of which Joanne Kellar Bouknight's The Kitchen Idea Book (LJ 1/99) and Jan Weimer's Kitchen Redos, Revamps, Remodels, and Replacements (LJ 9/15/97) remain the best, Hilliard gives lots of ideas for using the kitchen for everyday living and entertaining. Consideration is given to designing a kitchen, choosing tableware and linens, dining outdoors, and setting a table. Purchase where there is interest in kitchen design.
