That’s the kitchen, right? At our house, party guests always end up standing around in the kitchen (no matter how hard I try to steer people into the living room to sit down). My dream kitchen would be open to the living room to avoid this problem, and it would include a substantial island with seating. The kitchens below all have this design in common (and strangely, also have white cabinets…never knew I was such a fan of the white).
