What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? The previous owners put their refrigerator in the entryway because it didn't fit anywhere else. It was a jarring first sight to be greeted with. When we renovated, we created an alcove so that there was an unobtrusive place for the fridge. It really helped open up the space.
Give Andrea a THUMBS UP if you think this kitchen belongs in the finals!

What's the story of your kitchen?
We wanted to create an open, modern and inviting space. My favorite part of the apartment is the peninsula, which allows for the living are and kitchen to flow together.
What is your favorite meal to cook here?
I love to make all kinds of pasta. My go-to: orecchiette with green peas, turkey sausage, pine nuts and pecorino.
