Easy Entertaining

The hardworking kitchen is equipped for a big family or lots of guests and the cottage's open floor plan allows hosts to participate in the party. "I love the way the kitchen is integrated into the living area," Linda says, noting the cook's ability to pass samples over the island.

Plump tomatoes ripen on a window ledge above the kitchen sink, with water views beyond. Open shelving brings an airy feel to the room. One wall displays a white pitcher collection, while cookbooks below are within easy reach. The cream-colored cupboards echo living room tones.

Appliances: Whirpool. Cabinets: Home Depot. Cookware: Anolon.
