In her forthcoming book, "The Perfect Kitchen" (Rizzoli),Barbara Sallick, co-founder and vice president of design for Waterworks, points out that you never see kitchens in books about Dorothy Draper and other early 20th- and midcentury American decorators, mainly because-as the domain of housekeepers, cooks and other "scullery maids"-they were never meant to be seen by the public. "Now, though, we're seeing the design of these rooms being deeply considered as part of a home," she explained."
