I've always had a fascination with Degiulio Kitchens because I used to work with them at my old/first job. They have amazing lighting, and are very grand and top of the line everything. Designer, Mick de Giulio used to work as a craftsman so everyone of his kitchens is different and amazingly constructed.
This kitchen could so easily feel heavy and bulky because it is quite large but instead of a solid island, De Giulio used one with legs to bring it off the floor. GORGEOUS: potrack, subway tile backsplash, window, and shelf next to window.
Does anybody have one of these "flexible sinks" in their kitchen? Are they functional or a mistake? They look amazingly handy, and everything on it looks so fresh!
He doesn't believe in trends really and thinks a kitchen should feel like a furnished room, just like the rest of the house. Which brings me to the refrigerator which is disguised behind a faux Gothic tracery cabinet. I usually am put off by when people hide refrigerators but I really like these!
De Giulio says he doesn't do such things as "Italian kitchens" or "country kitchens" but he takes the needs and desires of clients and works that into his design. HOW NOVEL.
I've visited their showroom in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago and it's so amazing. If you live in the area you should take a walk through. It's clean, fresh, and uplifting. What do you think of his kitchens? Take a look at the website and Decorati's article on him as well.
