This Northwest Austin kitchen remodel kept its original footprint, but features new Shaker-style white cabinets, a concrete tile backsplash, gray quartz countertops and loads of personality.

The white, black and gray concrete tile backsplash makes a modern statement, and feels friendly in this inviting kitchen redesign. We’re in love with the homeowner’s purple KitchenAid mixer–the perfect accessory for a fun space.

A narrow black bookcase is a functional filler between the cabinetry and the stainless steel dishwasher, and offers an opportunity to display cookbooks or store a little bit of wine.

Brushed brass pendant lights suspended over the sink and peninsula add a hip, quirky touch.

The adjoining dining room adds some mid-century flavor.

We turned a damaged Craigslist find into a funky showpiece by recommending a hot yellow paint for the damaged tabletop. Leaving the undamaged wood skirt and legs alone gives the piece some contrast. Striped carpet tiles create a kid and pet-friendly rug under the table, and the homeowner’s white buffet offers additional storage.

The mid-century-inspired three-tiered pendant light above the table finishes the look.
