This Kitchen Makeover Makes the Case for Bold Color Blocking

AFTER: The mint green wall balances the deep tones of the teal cabinets and the yellow shine of the brass backsplash and hardware.

So Camille and Carole set about reorganizing the space, focusing on relocating elements and circulation so that their client’s living-dining-cooking spaces flowed better and centered around an unexpected multifunctional feature: “two back-to-back benches, one for the dining table and the other for the living room,” says Camille. By placing the bench so that it serves both the kitchen/dining and living rooms, it also acts as a de facto divider between the two spaces.

60-Minute Makeover star John Amabile on how home and design has been his haven during lockdown

HE became a household name through hit TV series 60-minute Makeover when he brought families’ dreams come true with home transformations.

And as people spent more time at time at home during lockdown, interior designer John Amabile was able to give a little back to his followers and fans. He set up a facebook forum which has become an inspiring and supportive community for budding interior designers and a place to share tips, advice, laugh at disasters and help people try to avoid them.

“Going into lockdown I think, like many people, I wondered how we were going to get through this,” said Amabile. “I am lucky I had my garden and studio to retreat to rather than just stare at four walls. I wanted to do a project to keep me sane and I think people saw their house and home and wondered what they could do themselves. Changing

Before and After Gray Kitchen – DIY Kitchen Makeover Gray Cabinets

Sometimes you love your significant other more than you love their home—and that’s OK! Marrying two different design styles when you move in together is something most every couple has to navigate. But sometimes moving in together shines a light on existing problems with the design and function of a space that might have gone unnoticed with just one person in the home.

That was the case for Sheridan Ferrara, whose now-husband Matt already owned his home when they started dating. “When we first started dating, he warned me of the state of the kitchen,” Sheridan says.

“The cupboards had film of at least two decades of finger and food grease,” Sheridan says, “and the floor was permanently yellow no matter what
