When the Kitchen Cousins tore down the wall that separated the kitchen from the dining room, it gave the Pasquella family an open area that feels twice the size. What was once a home office, is now a large dining room area that sits directly across from a new kitchen and center island. By taking down that wall, the family can cook and entertain without feeling separated. By removing the wall, the kitchen now has twice as much light. The new dining room table was custom made by John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino from old wood and steel.
The new living room at the Pasquella home is filled with color and life. The walls that separated the kitchen from the dining room and living room are gone. The old carpet is replaced by wood floors. A new couch by CB2, and a new rug by Genevieve Gorder fill the center of the room that once had no furniture at all. Brightly colored flowers and pillows add that extra burst of color and contrast to bring the room to life, while large bay windows help to bring the space to life. As seen on HGTV's Kitchen Cousins.
In the new kitchen of the Pasquella home, what was once a dark, old room, with barely enough room for a refrigerator, kitchen table and small countertops, now has more than enough room to cook and entertain. By removing the wall that separated the kitchen from the dining room, it allowed the Kitchen Cousins to add a center island for cooking and preparing food, as well as adding another eating area. With a different cabinet design, they were also able leave space for an oversize refrigerator. In addition to the room feeling larger without the wall, there is twice as much light that fills the room from the dining room area.
