Social Hours

Stylist Ed Gallagher brought his gentle touch to this story for Better Homes and Gardens. It's all about a kitchen makeover and how the updates to an old space brought a new spark to the homeowners' social life.  No one wants to invite friends over to a small dark kitchen, where the only thing you can cook is pigs in a blanket (that always come out burnt).  A light and fresh room is inviting to everyone - the photos by Lincoln Barbour tell the story of a happier couple who has a new lease of life.  Sometimes all you need is a little renovation.
