The past few years have made us all want to rethink our living spaces, particularly our kitchens. Our inner voices are saying, “You spend a lot of time in this room. Shouldn’t it feel more like you?”

Now it can. In Uncommon Kitchens, Sophie Donelson, the former editor in chief of House Beautiful, revolutionizes traditional kitchen design with a bevy of inventive ideas for makeovers both large and small. The kitchen is designed unlike any other room in the house, but that doesn’t mean you have to be hemmed in by tradition. Donelson takes a rule-breaking approach, mixing and layering styles, colors, furnishings, and layouts to make even well-trodden kitchens vividly fresh. Drawing on advice and up-to-the-minute projects from designers such as Frances Merrill, Jaqui Seerman, Victoria Sass, and many more, each personality-filled chapter is packed with liberating designs that will change your thinking about the tried-and-true kitchen.
