Noah Marion's Austin home is a lesson in how to do dark wood well in the kitchen. The rich, bold espresso cabinets, softened by the surrounding lighter wood tones, vintage accessories, and a little bit of greenery, make the kitchen feel very warm and welcoming.

The large piece of artwork hanging between the two cabinets also brings out the purplish undertones in the woodwork, helping to tie the space together.

Mismatched vintage chairs and an easy throw rug from IKEA complete the look. It's not fancy, but so well-done.
