For dicor that s nurturing, select traditional butcher-block countertops, display cookware and utensils, and grow herbs on the windowsill. Highlight its sophisticated side by discreetly hiding the cook s tools and focusing on wine racks, faux-finished walls, and granite countertops. Look through these magnificent photos of basic ingredients from appliances to lighting, cabinetry to tiling, and you will find a kitchen that excites and embraces you.

Mee (Design Is in the Details) has compiled photographs of kitchens to give both amateur and professional designers a variety of styles and ideas for designing this central room of the home. Concentrating on the style of kitchen design, rather than functionality, he points out the details that will create a particular look. Ranging from cabinetry to lighting to tiling, the book is not a how-to but an idea book. For large interior design collections. Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.

    After looking at design book after design book after design book, kitchens, baths, living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, sitting rooms and on and on, (You get the idea) I hit the jackpot with this book. This book is not merely about kitchens. Nearly every kitchen, including the details, represented the aesthetic that I am seeking for my kitchen remodeling project. I kept turning the pages, somewhat in disbelief that I loved them all, especially the larger architecture encompassing the kitchens and sometimes the beautiful views. I couldn't understand why this design book finally hit on what I was looking for. Then I read the back cover about Mr. Mee, being from Phoenix. That was my ah ha moment - these pictures were taken from the beautiful homes of Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona. Communities in which the natural beauty of the Sonoran desert and architectural beauty honoring the spirit of the old Southwest converge to createa place on this earth that has captured my imagination and continuously calls to my soul. Right now I'm working on a kitchen in a 200 year old historic colonial home in Virginia where I plan to incorporate the details from Mr. Mee's book. And then sometime in the future I hope to do the same thing all over again in a new home in the breathtaking Arizona desert.

    This is a great book with gorgeous photos. As a budding designer I found these designs sophisticated and a greate source of inspiration. Therefore, I would have to disagree with the other reviewer. Personally, I dont care for Chris Madden designs. I guess it is all about personal taste. Overall, this book is worht taking a look at.

    I find the Kitchens in this book to be so overdone that its painful! I'm an Interior Designer and was looking for ideas and inspiration. Neither were supplied by the content of this book. The details actually become overwhelming rather than working as an integral part of beautifully pioneered spaces!I would recommend Kitchens by Chris Casson Madden. Might be a little dated now but still helpful.
