Natalie, in the TODAY kitchen that inspired her New Jersey home.

People magazine interviewed Natalie for this week's issue in a story called "Hollywood at Home." They caught up with the TODAY co-anchor in her Hoboken, NJ kitchen, where she told the mag she "often makes pancakes or banana bread for sons Josh, 7, and Luke, 3, and her husband Joe.

"It's the heart of the home," she told the magazine, while revealing why it might look a smidge like another kitchen you may be familiar with.

When she was renovating the brownstone in 2008, she drew inspiration from the TODAY set.

"I brought my architect in to the TODAY show kitchen and said, 'I want this in my house!'" 

Bringing work home never looked so good.
