Cook up a fabulous kitchen design

It is no surprise that the word "hearth" has the word "heart" in it. The hearth was once the center of a home, providing warmth and nourishment to its inhabitants.

If you want to recreate a time rather than a place, perhaps art deco, vintage or contemporary kitchen accessories are perfect for you.

An art deco kitchen recalls the fun and frivolity of the Roaring '20s. Square and rectangular fixtures (such as sinks and stoves) are set off by ornate, curvy accents (faucets and knobs), while neutral hues like white, black and gray are interrupted by punches of color, especially red.

Borrowing heavily from the art deco period but with a slightly straighter edge, modern design also features the same basic palette, with a few less curves and a bit more shine. Reminiscent of the 1950s, a modern kitchen is ...
