The New Living Room

The problem with the living room in Mark and Jeanette Jedele’s Plymouth home was that it wasn’t where they really lived.

It was just “wasted space,” says Jeanette, a human resources director at General Mills. Instead, the Jedeles’ daily lives revolve around their kitchen.

“It’s where everyone congregates, so we’d have eight people and it was tight,” says Mark.

That’s not an unusual complaint, says interior designer Christine Nelson, who helped the Jedeles rethink their living space. She points to a growing trend in the way American families are using their homes: “People are spending more and more time in their kitchens.”
