As featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, before John and Anthony redesigned this home, the spaces felt closed in and separate, but when the Kitchen Cousins revamped the home's common spaces, they took out half of the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room and living room. This connected all three spaces physically and visually.
Featured on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens, both the kitchen and dining room areas were small and closed off, so designers John and Anthony took out part of the kitchen wall, creating a bar area that opens both spaces making them feel larger.
To give this Midcentury Modern living room personality and depth, designers added funky pattern, unique accents and cool textures to the space. A leopard print chair and blue patterned couch soften the space, making it feel intimate, while the modern furnishings, such as the end table and lamp, continue the modern design. Along the back wall, stone has been carried halfway up the wall. This stone conceals the television and also serves as a display for some of the modern art in the space, while the large giraffe statue draws the eye to this part of the space.
To keep the bold, hand-painted pattern of this dining room's walls and curtains from overwhelming the space, the designers used crisp, white wainscoting on the room's lower half and kept the chairs, table and rug muted.
The simple styling of this dining room allows the oversized pattern on the wall and the artwork to be the main attractions. Turquoise blue dining chairs pick up the painting's hues and pull the room together.
This dining room features an open floor plan with brilliant blue walls and white built-ins. Metal pendant lamps hang over an industrial style table. Leather dining chairs and a wooden bench provide seating.
Asian influences in this vibrant dining room mingle with a trendy leopard-print bench and wicker chairs tucked under a pale dining table. Floral curtains, brightly colored plates, artwork and a brass light fixture accentuate the green walls, conjuring a tropical feel.
To create an indoor-outdoor feel in the dining room and kitchen, designers used ten foot high stacking glass panel doors. This wall showcases the aged, white French Oak floors and custom table in the dining room, creating a seamless entertaining space for the homeowners.
A mix of light and dark wood tones highlights the linear designs of this contemporary, open-plan dining room. Floating shelves pop against an illuminated accent wall, adding to the modern feel of the space.
This contemporary dining room features an all-over white wall color coupled with a gray grasscloth wallpaper that acts as an accent wall. Gray velvet chairs line a rectangular glass dining table, allowing plenty of room for entertaining guests.
