Briana uses decorative tin containers to keep many of her daily must-haves — from tea bags and sugar to toothpicks and salt — within arm's reach. By using these containers instead of assorted bottles and boxes, Briana benefits from a burst of color and graphic pattern that also keeps clutter at bay.
The remodeled dining area -- in warm wood tones, muted gray-greens and charcoal -- exemplifies the casual, comfortable vibe the Kitchen Cousins were going for with this renovation. To add historic character to the dining room, stamped-tin tiles were installed on the ceiling. The tiles are in varied patterns alternating between linear, medallion and floral designs. An impressive chandelier adds a touch of elegance to the space.
"Compositionally, I think this kitchen works very well," says designer Genevieve Gorder about this HGTV Design Star kitchen makeover. "The layout is open and inclusive to everyone and everything in the house, which is ideal for families and entertaining. I love the idea of Moorish accents running throughout the space and that there seems to be enough storage that was installed correctly in every corner of the kitchen." But she adds: "Where I think they missed — and missed hard — with this particular design was in the very concept. When I look at this space I'm confused with a folkie valance, a latticework design of Moorish descent on the bar and an almost Victorian/turn-of-the-century pressed-tin backsplash. Overall, I think the space lacks focus; it feels weighted down by too much color and busied by clashing patterns."
