Five Awe-Inspiring Celebrity Kitchens

We’ve all got celebrities on our mind after the epic Academy Awards, which got me thinking about using celebrities’ homes for inspiration. One of the most elaborate places of the house can be the kitchen, so I dug up six fantastic kitchens that we can all be inspired by!

Hillary Duff’s kitchen is a cross between medieval and industrial. The massive refrigerator/freezer and center island mixed with the rustic lighting and the earthen ceiling make this kitchen a trip to many new worlds. It  makes me wonder what those cookbooks are!

Gwyneth Paltrow’s kitchen is absolutely fantastic. I love the fancy chandelier – that’s something you don’t often see in a kitchen. The dark cabinetry really contrasts with the center island and the light floor and walls. There can never be too many cooks in a kitchen like this!


Gerard Butler’s kitchen is absolutely magical. It’s rustic, it’s eclectic, it has pieces from all different times, and it’s all around gorgeous. Plus, it’s not a kitchen if you can’t cook in it, and this looks like a great place to be inspired while cooking.

I really like the lighting in Meg Ryan’s kitchen. Imagine waking up to make breakfast while looking outside at a sunshiny morning. Her center island is big enough for making homemade pasta or cookies, but it doesn’t overcrowd the space. I’d love to cook (or eat) a meal in this lovely kitchen.

And I thought Gerard Butler’s kitchen was eclectic … look at Christina Aguilera’s! The red coloring pops against the predominately black and white kitchen. These bold statements, like the lighting above the sink, really personalize her kitchen. I’d love to see what the rest of her house looks like.

Of the six kitchens I’m sharing with you to be awed by, Ashton Kutcher’s is by far the biggest. Could you imagine entertaining in here? There’s room for everyone! The windows bring in so much beautiful natural light, plus the greenery outside brightens up the monotone kitchen. I also love the reflections in the hanging bulbs; it’s a nice, subtle way to add some art to the cooking room. We may not all have the means to make kitchens like Gerard Butler’s or Hillary Duff’s, but we can certainly be inspired by their creativity!
