Good choices, Shroomgirl, except for one. My Dad lives in a house Sheila Lukins designed. The most poorly done part of the house? Amazingly enough, it was the kitchen. Not enough counter space or storage and poorly laid out. Jut making a simple meal in it gave you that "one step forward, two steps back" feeling. Thankfully, it's been redone. Of course, now that it's got the dream kitchen (we're talking Wolf 8-eye w/flat-top and two moderate ovens, two convection ovens, separate baking area, etc.), he's selling the house.
If you want to see it, it was featured in the Wall Street Journal on 10/20/2000.
