Kitchens in every home can reveal a lot about the people who work and play in them. It comes as no surprise that celebrity dwellings are amazing and beautiful, and their kitchens are often the icing on the cake. From the smallest details to the ambiance as a whole, the celebrity kitchens that we have featured are truly inspirational.
These stars have the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in interior design when it comes to decking out their homes. If they’re looking for a dramatic remodel with a distinctive look, they turn to celebrity decorators like Martyn Lawrence Bullard (his client list includes everyone from Eva Mendes to Kid Rock), who became a household name through his Bravo TV show, Million Dollar Decorators. Others opt to work with highbrow design firms like Roman and Williams, as Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin did for their New York City penthouse. And some Los Angeles homes have a long history of celebrity owners, and go through dramatic remodels to align designs with the buyer’s aesthetic. One home on our list boasts an iconic kitchen thanks to an MTV reality show that featured a very eclectic family, and the design was also featured in Architectural Digest. The same house was sold to a high-profile musician, who then remodeled it to suit her unique and artistic taste.
The design of these kitchens vary in style, inspiration points, and grandeur — and some push designs in directions both wonderful and questionable. Some celebrities' homes, like Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s Manhattan penthouse and kitchen, are ultramodern, while other homes were created with history in mind, like Gerard Butler’s New York City medieval-themed kitchen.
Regardless of whether or not these celebrities cook for themselves or enjoy the culinary creations of the finest personal chefs, the kitchens in their homes can certainly inspire us all. Take away some design tips from these spaces, like how to rev up a kitchen island or how to use different colors to liven up the walls and create an open-air feeling.
