About

“A master of innovation, Mick De Giulio mixes 45 years of kitchen design experience, well-honed intuition, and visits to near-and-far locales with every kitchen he creates.”

Ann Wilson, Elegant Homes

“Fostering creativity and beauty amid structure, (Mick De Giulio) helped form the philosophy that homes – particularly kitchens – are not only where family is defined, but also the place where we determine the future of our larger community.”

Christopher G. Kennedy, Foreword to Kitchen Centric

“De Giulio’s sensitivity to the lives of his clients and the architectural style of their homes, his choice and mix of materials, and his ingenious solutions to problems inspire readers and editors alike.”
