Product Description

About the Author

Born in Detroit in 1953, Mick De Giulio learned the craft of woodworking at his father's shop, where they built architectural elements such as cupolas and octagonal windows. At the age of 19, under the auspices of his father's shop, Mick built and installed his first kitchen. Some 39 years later, Mick De Giulio 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. De Giulio has been commissioned by Kohler to design a line of plumbing fixtures. His design for SieMatic Corp., a high-end German kitchen manufacturer, was used in the Blair House in Washington, D.C., home of the vice president. He lives in Chicago, Illinois.

Required Reading for Remodeling/Building a Kitchen! July 26 2010
By Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love this book!
I'm passionate about architecture and design, and for years have been collecting ideas for my "dream house". This book has sticky notes on more pages than I care to count. The concept of KItchen Centric is that today's kitchens are the hub of the home, the physical center of family life. That's certainly true for my family. To that end, DeGiulio showcases kitchens that are unique to the people that live in them. Admittedly these kitchens are very high end! And clearly beyond my budget. However I think many of the ideas could be interpreted at a price I can afford. But more importantly, I am totally jazzed about the way this book gets you to think about space and how you live in it. Furthermore, some of DeGiulio's "tenets" would apply to any area in your home, as he speaks about proportion, texture, light, function, etc. This book takes kitchen design to a whole new level! I can't imagine designing a kitchen, or a house, without it!

Great book for ideas or a coffee table July 16 2010
By Alain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am currently working on a new construction home and have purchased a ton of magazines looking for ideas. I had seen some of this author's kitchens in those magazines so I did a google search on him. I bought this book and I have found dozens of ideas in the photos. The first time through the book it is a bit overwhelming and all you see is the luxury. You have to look at the photos one kitchen at a time in order to get the ideas. That's when you start to see the design and detail. The magazines I bought were not long enough to get inspired. This book is not gonna change your life, but your family and friends may end up more spending more time with you in your new space. If you are remodeling a home or building from scratch this book will definitely give you some inspiration on building a comfortable meeting spot. I will definitely use this book as an inspiration guide throughout the build process.

Spectacular book Feb. 27 2011
By afshan ahmed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book with my interior decorator. Not a normal purchase for me as I tend to buy more home magazines and tear out ideas. Currently in the beginning stages of a kitchen remodel this book has so many fine details that add up to creating a one of a kinds spectacular kitchen. The pictures are stunning and each one has a story to really immerse you in the project. Gets your mind spinning with ideas for your own project. I would highly recommend and if your really curious go visit the showroom in Chicago. WOW!

Beautiful Book, Beautiful Kitchens Aug. 31 2010
By Julia Dennis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Its gorgeous and after receiving it, I couldn't wait to sit somewhere quiet and browse through it. The book is very well done with spectacular photography, and well written commentary on each kitchen design and how Mick De Giuilio brought his concepts to completion. It is full of great ideas for classy kitchen planning. Loved it.
