Who lives in a house like this?

When it comes to choosing a theme for the interior of your home, you may find yourself stumped. Many people are scared to use bright colours for fear of offending others, and in turn, copy everyone else and keep things neutral. The danger of this however, is that, while attractive from a buyer’s perspective, it can make your home look a little bland and samey – just like everyone else’s. In your home, you make the rules, so if you want to glam up your house, feel free to.

Today we’re taking a look at some celebrity homes – you’ll find plenty of design ideas to recreate in your own property.

Oprah Winfrey
Upon first glance, this kitchen looks rather modest and plain to belong to a big personality like Oprah Winfrey. However, if you look again, there are a few tell-tale signs, such as the solid marble worktop, the chandelier and the ornate stone feature above the oven. According to frontdoor.com, this property is one of several that the star owns, and reportedly also contains a solarium and wine room – jealous, us?




Robin Williams
Villa Sorriso stands between Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Hookedonhouses.net reports that Robin Williams’ home is not just your average property – in addition to the standard rooms, there’s also a library, art and wine cellars, a theatre, an elevator and even a viewing tower that overlooks the valley – pretty impressive huh? We just love this muted yellow shade in the entrance hall; it’s really welcoming and gives it a tranquil, calm feel. The planet lighting is pretty cool too. Using a simple and pale colour palette really opens up a room – soft lighting gives it a warm glow and contrasts wonderfully with the stone steps.



Kanye West
From the outside (top left pic), Kanye West’s home looks, well, dull. Inside however is a different story completely. Look how lavish his bedroom is – surely all of those cushions are Kim’s influence? Check out the size of that television screen – it’s like having your own personal cinema! A comfortable squashy sofa, warm rug and low coffee table add the perfect finishing touches. Nydailynews.com also tells us that he has a built in computer in every room – there’d be no squabbling over whose turn it is in that house.

While each celeb has chosen a completely different approach to their home décor, one thing they all have in common is space, and huge amounts of it. If you’re lacking space in your home, you may wish to consider having a loft conversion.
