Simply gorgeous are the words that come to mind when we admire this kitchen designed by Decorist Elite designer Jason Martin. Anchored by a generously sized kitchen island, the space has square footage on its side—and two sinks! Jason's selection of a beautiful dusty gray hue for the cabinetry along with luxe brass hardware and lighting give the unfussy space real elegance.

On the contrary, this kitchen, designed by Decorist Celebrity designers Studio LIFE.STYLE for actress Hilary Duff, is far from simple. It is, in a word, statement-making. Of course, the kitchen's patterned cement tile steal the show, but cool marine blue cabinetry, a luxurious copper hood, and open brass shelving are also great touches. We especially love the mixed metal look and the kitchen's marble and butcher block countertops.
Actress Shay Mitchell's Los Angeles kitchen, designed by Decorist Celebrity designer Consort, is a great example of transitional design. While the kitchen island feels wholly transitional with its feminine detailing and beveled-edge Carrara marble top, brass and black leather stools and an artful fruit bowl and vase add a modern touch.
Meanwhile, this kitchen designed by Decorist Celebrity designer Celerie Kemble is traditional, preppy, and happy. Mint green cabinets, glass knobs, painted floors, patterned wallpaper, penny tiles, and a striped rug combine to create an upbeat space with a good-days-only vibe. You can always leave it to the Palm Beach–based designer to design you a pick-me-up.
Light and Bright
Los Angeles–based Decorist Celebrity designer Tamara Honey own LA kitchen is modern, edgy, and fresh. With scene-stealing windows and no upper cabinets, the room is breezy and bright. We love its simplicity—white cabinets and a marble island—as well as a few quirky moments like leather bikini–wrapped stools and Fornasetti artwork. You can never go wrong with a white kitchen.
Warm and Modern
With oak cabinetry and Silestone counters, this kitchen designed by Decorist Celebrity designer Chloe Warner and architect Charlie Barnett is current and cool. It's the kind of space that makes you want to renovate your own kitchen, no matter how recently it was updated. The trio of white and gold pendants offers sophisticated modernity and the cerused oak wishbone-style bar stools couldn't be more fitting. Plus, botanical artwork for the win!
Fine and Funky
Designed by Decorist designer Cecilia Casagrande, this Boston kitchen (the same one featured in the opener photo) is funky and stylish. The La Cornue range and hood are certainly attention-grabbers, as well as the kitchen's Lindsay Adelman smoked glass chandelier. But other details like the dark tile grout, the ferns topping the cabinetry, and the retro kitchen clock bring a lot of visual interested.
Actress Jamie Chung's Los Angeles kitchen, designed by Decorist Celebrity designer Will Wick, oozes retro charm. Wick worked around the kitchen's original stove, bringing in midcentury-inspired accents like the star-print floor tiles and floating wooden shelves but updated the look with sleek white cabinets and countertops. It's as cute as they come.
