Design Ideas from Celebrity Kitchens

There are plenty of things we don’t envy about the lives of celebrities—constantly being stalked by photographers and having no sense of privacy, for instance. However, we do find ourselves feeling a little green when it comes to their kitchens. After all, one of the perks of being rich and famous is that you can afford to create your dream kitchen, decked out with beautiful decor and top-of-the-line appliances.

While a full-on renovation might not be in the budget for many of us, you can definitely steal a few design ideas from the kitchens of your favorite stars. Here are some celebrity kitchens we’re obsessed with and tips on how to recreate the look in your own home.


8 Things to Know Before You Remodel Your Kitchen by Amanda Sims


1. Ina Garten’s Hanging Pots and Pans

There’s really no easy way to store pots and pans in your kitchen cabinets. They all end up in a jumble, making it a chore to get the one you need, which is why we love Ina Garten’s storage strategy.

Instead of tucking all of her pots and pans away in a cupboard, she hangs some of them all right above her stove, keeping everything neat and within reach. The best part is that you simply need a wall-mounted kitchen bar to bring this storage solution into your own kitchen. (And can we please just take a minute to admire her new Lacanche French range? SWOON)

2. Chrissy Teigen’s Open Shelves

You’ll probably be distracted by Chrissy Teigen’s adorable picture of her daughter at first glance, but we recommend you watch this video clip again and check out the amazing open shelves behind the model-slash-cookbook-author.

The simple shelves match the kitchen counters for a cohesive look, and Teigen uses them to store plates, bowls, glasses and cookbooks—all the essentials you need to have within reach when you’re cooking.

3. Khloé Kardashian’s Uber-Organized Pantry

Khloé Kardashian might not be the first person who pops into your head when you think of celebrity chefs, but her pantry is awe-inspiring, especially if you like things to be neat and tidy.

In this “Khlo-C-D” video, the reality TV star shows off her impressively polished pantry, where everything is in matching containers and arranged with purpose. Kardashian suggests checking out yard sales for pantry-organizing supplies, such as containers, baskets, and labels.

4. Brooke Shields’ Over-the-Stove Shelf

Supermodel Brooke Shields has a genius solution for storing all the extraneous odds and ends that gather on kitchen counters. She has a thin shelf installed above her stove where she leaves salt, pepper, oil, and other cooking essentials. This way, they’re always within reach and you can have the clean counters you crave.

5. Jennifer Garner’s Baking Station

Setting up is half the battle when it comes to baking. It’s certainly a hassle if you have to fetch supplies from the pantry once you get going, so why not take a cue from Instagram cooking show host Jennifer Garner and lay everything out to make the process as smooth as possible?

Garner leaves her mixer right on the counter alongside baking essentials like flour and sugar, so everything is ready and waiting when it comes time to create. We can’t wait to see what she whips up next on her Pretend Cooking Show!

6. Blake Lively’s Copper Theme (Modeled by Salma Hayek)

While it may be Salma Hayek hard at work in this photo, it’s actually Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ home (and baby) you’re seeing. Instead of decking out their kitchen in stainless steel appliances, these A-listers opted for a copper color scheme, which makes the space that much more warm and welcoming.

7. Lady Gaga’s Rustic Cabinets

We were a little surprised to see that Lady Gaga’s kitchen has a distinctly rustic vibe, including distressed cabinets and countertops—an easy look to recreate in your own home. The bright tableware in the cabinets adds a nice pop of color to the otherwise muted space.

8. Jessica Alba’s Bright Color Scheme


So many celebrities (and people in general) opt for white kitchen decor these days, including white walls, white cabinets, white backsplashes, and more. While we love the look of a pristine white kitchen, there’s something incredibly relatable and welcoming about the cheery yellow walls in Jessica Alba’s kitchen. Maybe it’s time to brighten up our own spaces with a pop of color!

9. Mariah Carey’s Second Sink

In the middle of this adorable at-home music video featuring Mariah Carey’s son Roc, you’ll get a glimpse at the singer’s impressive kitchen island, complete with a built-in sink. We love the idea of having a second kitchen for prep work (we can dream, can't we?)—it would definitely come in handy when there’s more than one person working in the kitchen.

10. Oprah’s Wall Decor

If you can tear your eyes away from the amazing Moroccan-inspired cuisine being prepared in this video, you’ll get a glimpse of the walls in Oprah’s kitchen. We love the aesthetic of the bird-themed decor against the plain white walls.

11. Reese Witherspoon’s Classic Aesthetic

Everything about Reese Witherspoon is polished and proper, so it should come as no surprise that her kitchen is near immaculate, too. Check out those perfectly organized cabinets, clear counters, and spotless backsplash. This might be the motivation we need to tidy up a bit.

12. Gwyneth Paltrow’s Metal Backsplash

Most kitchens have a tile backsplash behind the stove, but Gwyneth Paltrow's has a super-modern stainless backdrop instead. Not to mention, she has an envy-inducing double range—perfect for having cook-offs with friends.

13. Taylor Swift’s Coffee Station

In this video interview with pop star Taylor Swift, we’re treated to a mini tour of her home. If you fast forward to 1:40, you can peep her amazing kitchen, complete with a full-on coffee station. On a side counter, she has coffee and espresso machines arranged under a cabinet full of mugs. This is an easy look to replicate in your own home. Though, you might not be able to decorate your coffee station with a VMA award.

14. David Beckham's Black-on-Black

David Beckham's savory chicken and leek pie (an ode to Gordon Ramsey!) looks picture-perfect, but we can't stop staring at the all-black lower cabinet scheme in his kitchen. Black fronts and black pulls make a stylish statement while still maintaining the warmth of the kitchen.

15. Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Adorable Decals

Okay, so technically this isn’t Sarah Michelle Gellar’s kitchen—it’s the headquarters for her company Foodstirs. However, we’re totally crushing on the kitchen-themed decals (scroll through the pictures to see!).

The cute sayings are bright, colorful and quirky, and we think they’d make an awesome addition to just about any kitchen. Oh, and the chalkboard doors aren’t too shabby either!
