We love stalking interior design sites and blogs for celebrity homes. True, we don’t necessarily have the renovation and decoration budgets of the A-List, but we can definitely get scores of decor ideas from their (not-so)humble homes.
Here are some of our favorite celebrity rooms, and the ideas you can steal from them:
We can totally imagine lounging and entertaining in the living room of actors Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. You need the key pieces to pull off this warm yet vibrant space: sofas, armchair, stools, end tables, graphic art pieces, a statement modern light fixture—and a fully stocked bar cart, of course.
What we love most about the kitchen of Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts is the fact that it’s cool yet functional. Kitchens and bathrooms are the most expensive to remodel/renovate in the home and if you can’t have all of the cool design elements in Liev and Naomi’s kitchen, then take the ones we love most: the patterned concrete-tile floor, beautiful cabinetry, and that homey eat-in nook.
There’s something very chic yet still very casual and comfy about Patrick Dempsey’s dining room. We love the mismatched chairs paired with the banquette. Dining chairs can be expensive especially when you have to purchase six and more of them, and using existing, mismatched (albeit complementary) chairs for your dining space is cost-efficient and unexpected.
We’re seriously crushing on Kourtney Kardahian’s new contemporary home, and her home office is one of our favorites. If you have the luxury of space and a high ceiling, then by all means be inspired by this highly sophisticated modern design for your own home office. But if you’re like us who have a box for a work space, then the graphic accent wall—featuring pieces that follow a strong theme—should do the trick.
Another Kardashian home we’re coveting? Khloe’s. While her entire Moroccan-inspired home showcases a lot of noteworthy decor ideas, her uber cozy-looking bedroom has one detail that we can all copy: that gigantic upholstered headboard.
Kourtney’s kids are distracting because they are too cute, but take a moment to also fall in love with her sister Khloe’s patio. You can get the look as well with just two identical daybeds, an outdoor coffee table, loads of fluffy color-coordinated throw pillows—and your own cutie kiddos.
Speaking of kiddos… Nate Berkus’s old nursery (the home has since been sold) for his daughter Poppy is the perfect mix of glam and pretty. Who says nurseries have to be pinks and yellows or greens and blues? Achieving this look is quite easy: beautiful wallpaper you would use in any room (read: not kiddie), art on walls, and a thoughtfully curated mix of decorative items—from throws to ottomans and those little knickknacks.
The other space we love about Nate’s old home is the play area that he set up in a room that could otherwise serve as the den or family room. We think it’s a smart use of existing space, and it’s something all of us mere mortals with very limited spaces in our homes can also do. Once the kids grow up, the old play room can go back to whatever it was before—with very minimal redecorating.
We gasped a little when we saw the bathroom of super-couple Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. We would love a 360-degree tour to see where the bathtub is (we’re pretty sure there’s one in this master bath and that it’s spectacular), but that walk-in shower is enough to make us wish we had a supermodel budget for a bathroom makeover. This is probably one room that’s dreamy but not so achievable by simple styling. But hey, if you’re building a new home or doing a complete bathroom reno, make sure to add this to your Pinterest board.
