Season 5, Episode 12

Midcentury Not So Modern

Midcentury not so modern is how Allison and Rustin describe their modified rambler just five minutes outside the city. They bought the house because of its location, but four years later they're still stuck with an out-of-date brown and beige kitchen with appliances that don't even work! Licensed Contractor James Young will help them better utilize the space by opening up a small wall between the kitchen and dining room. The cabinets will be painted white with stainless steel accents and countertops, giving it a contemporary feel. A mother of pearl backsplash will make an elegant statement, and a red range will add a splash of color.
