Welcoming Eat-In Kitchen

The big farmhouse table can easily seat a crowd, and comfy armchairs mean guests actually want to linger around the table when they're done eating. "Kids love coming over. Another mom told me it's because I'm the 'favorite mom,' but I think it's because the house is so inviting and easy to be in." Clearly the feeling is mutual. "I love having everyone around," says Kelly. "They're so full of life." Collaborating with her contractor, Bill Wennerberg, Kelly knocked out interior walls in the 18th-century cottage to open up the main floor, creating an expansive kitchen perfect for pizza parties, with plenty of room in the pantry for snacks.
