Our Latest TV Addiction: HGTV's Kitchen Cousins

Irwin Weiner ASID - Having just accepted an offer on our wonderful farmhouse makeover weekend house in Pennsylvania, Jay and I know how powerful a draw it is for potential buyers to fall in love with a home that features an updated kitchen. That's what makes HGTV's Kitchen Cousins such a strong show in the crowded field of home makeover shows - we get to focus just on the kitchen and how a disaster becomes a professionally styled kitchen. The cousins, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, are attractive, knowledgeable professionals - one a contractor/builder and the other a designers - and their NJ-based company comes to the aid of homeowners while building a huge private business. TV does drive a business brand, after all. Watch this Season One summary video to see some of the situations you'll find the cousins tackling. We're addicted.
