Designer Mick De Giulio is the Picasso of kitchen design. He's famed for being one of the kitchen industry's leading innovators—and for good reason. His work ranges from 54-foot square kitchens in Manhattan, to an old horse stable-turned-rustic kitchen, to the 1,000-square-foot training kitchen at appliance giant Sub-Zero's headquarters in Wisconsin. Here, De Giulio gets personal—sharing with Cultivate why kitchens, his own and others, have a special place in his heart. And why they should have a special place in yours too.
