AJ and I are in LOVE with the concept of having a Keeping Room off of the kitchen. Dating back to Colonial times, it provided a warm spot on a cold night where the family could gather. While our ancestors were toasty around the kitchen stove, modern design often incorporates a fireplace as the focal point. The idea of migrating to the keeping room after mealtime to be together and/or a place to contain the kids while I'm preparing dinner is extremely appealing and so pretty to look at.
