As House Beautiful's Editor-in-Chief Newell Turner notes in the introduction to "Kitchens," "we've come a long way since avocado." In this artistic, inspiring tome, Lisa Cregan takes readers on a tour of more than 100 kitchens from bold to balanced, modern to vintage, proving that kitchen design today defies fixed formulae.

"House Beautiful Kitchens" brims with both gorgeous photos and advice on how to build a functional and fabulous cooking space. Cregan includes all the information we need to mix and match salvaged materials with the latest in appliances, flooring, and more. She adds interviews with designers, architects and homeowners as well as a "Stalking the Look" page for each kitchen, making it easy to envision the kitchen of your dreams.
