Whether you are deep into the process of remodeling your kitchen or are just looking for inspiration, here are some gorgeous kitchens belonging to some of the hottest celebrities to provide you with some eye candy (thanks, Architectural Digest):
When designing Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne’s home in the gated community of Hidden Hills, California, Martyn Lawrence Bullard set aside the Moorish influences he’s so fond of and created a refined yet comfortable country-house feel. “Sharon rules the roost when it comes to decor,” said Lawrence Bullard, who incorporated pieces from her Americana collection around the kitchen, including a vintage cash register and animal weather vanes. The well-worn red chairs surrounding the marble-topped island add a pop of color to the serene space.
Actor Hank Azaria’s Bel Air residence—which he shares with his partner, Katie Wright, and their son, Hal—celebrates comfort over flash. Decorator Trip Haenisch, who gave the house what he described as a much-needed organic overhaul, installed French-oak floors in the kitchen and created the island using reclaimed wood topped by Carrara marble. The industrial pot rack and light fixtures—like the stainless-steel Viking range and hood, and Sub-Zero refrigerators—complement the counters and backsplash of dark-gray Basaltina stone.
Asian and Middle Eastern influences inform the interiors Martyn Lawrence Bullard conceived for Cher’s Los Angeles duplex. Although the singer and actress insisted on a neutral palette, the designer used intricate detailing and bold accent pieces to enliven the home. In the open kitchen, hand-carved screens cover the cabinets and conceal state-of-the-art appliances, while Chinese hanging lanterns add to the exotic atmosphere.
