What To Do With Space Between Living Room & Kitchen?

Q: My home was designed with a very narrow dining space between the living room and kitchen. At 9ft by 9ft and it is simply too narrow for our dining room table. We have moved the table to the much larger family room around the corner and enjoy using the "dining space" for an office/library. Any suggestions for how to make it an attractive, comfortable and functional extension of the living room?

And while we're at it, any advice on the very open kitchen? Rug suggestions? Should I paint the cabinets white?
