Design and Decorate
KitchensBook - 2007
Creating the perfect kitchen is like cooking a special meal: you have to pore through the recipes, consider the ingredients, and imagine how everything will finally come together. And that's exactly what House Beautiful 's new guide allows home decorators to do. First, the "Design" section helps you identify your style, decide on an effective layout, figure out infrastructure (lighting, electrics, fittings, and appliances) and establish storage needs. Then, in the "Decorate" section, sumptuous photos provide decorating inspiration for color schemes, window dressings, finishing touches, and more. Best of all, there's no need to follow one plan from start to finish: pick and choose the elements that seem most practical and appealing to you from the many different options. The result: a kitchen that's made to order!
