In The Art of Kitchen Design, leading kitchen architect Johnny Grey sounds a rousing note of liberation for the kitchen and shows, fascinatingly, that a kitchen can be efficient and contemporary yet at the same time offer traditional comforts and style as an elegant living space.
Johnny Grey find his inspiration from many sources, including the traditional country kitchens of rural Scandinavia, the American Arts and Crafts Movement and the farmhouse kitchens of Britain which evolved naturally as family rooms providing warmth, comfort and company as well as hearty meals for healthy country appetites. In his approach to kitchen design, he demonstrates that timeless freestanding dressers and cupboards can do as good or better a job than lookalike commercial kits, while being more responsive to the individual space concerned.
Lavishly illustrated throughout with over 150 super colour photographs, the book shows 'unfitted' kitchen solutions working in every type of kitchen space -- from large and lofty to small and awkward. As well as presenting case studies, it is full of intriguing new ideas that will interest not only anyone planning a new kitchen but also designers, architects, decorators and craft enthusiasts. Beautifully designed and produced, The Art of Kitchen Design combines tradition and contemporary designs in ways that will help every reader make their kitchen a joy to be in.
