Family members and guest can enjoy the company of the home cook while in this Dallas, Texas, home's kitchen, which opens up to the adjacent family room. Contrasts is created through the use of cement counters on the island and green marble counters along the wall, and an oven hood trimmed in the same hardwood as the cabinets anchors the open space.
