“Life is a combination of magic and pasta,” says Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini, and he’s not wrong. From Kaley Cuoco’s rococo Tarzana mansion to Andy Warhol’s infinitely cool waterfront beach house property on the eastern tip of Long Island, we’ve put together a curated gallery of celebrity kitchens showcasing interior design ideas. Whether you are looking for some design inspiration for your own kitchen project, or merely curious about a specific celebrity aesthetic, we’re sure you will find something to pique your interest from the list below.
1. Warhol’s Montauk Beach House Offers Dramatic Ocean Views
Andy Warhol bought his 5.7-acre Montauk estate on the eastern tip of Long Island, NY, in 1971 for $225,000. Visitors over the years included luminaries such as Jerry Hall, Cheryl Tiegs, Halston, Liza Minnelli, Liz Taylor, John Lennon, John Phillips, Mick Jagger, Jackie Kennedy and Lee Radziwill. The Rolling Stones rented the property in 1976 to work out songs for their “Black and Blue” album. For some history on the beach house and a photo of Keith Richards frying up some eggs on the stove for breakfast check out Attic Mag’s story here. A pro-style French range has replaced the stove Richards’ used but otherwise the kitchen has remained relatively unchanged with the same hardwood flooring and shiplap walls and ceiling. Sitting at the kitchen table gives you dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
