11 Chic Living Rooms From Our Favorite Celebrities
When it comes to celebrity homes, we all get a little voyeuristic. With access to the most talented interior designers and the finances to buy the coolest furniture, celebrity homes keep our intrigue levels on high alert. The space we’re always most interested to see is the living room. Why? Well, it's akin to a designer showcase—everything the owner wants to say about his style and home accumulates in this one room; it truly evokes their unique personality. There's always something we can take away from a living room and implement in our own homes too. From Naomi Watts's elevated family oasis to Derek Lam's easygoing, elegant apartment, we rounded up some of our favorite celebrity living rooms along with the top items to steal. Scroll down to see our picks.
The Celeb: Derek Lam, fashion designer
The Look: Easygoing elegance
Item to Steal: Poul Kjærholm PK91 Folding Stool
There's something so effortless and welcoming about this designer living room. This "airy treehouse" apartment features warm wood paneling and envy-inducing views of Gramercy Park, the über-private Manhattan square. We could sit here and read for hours without a care in the world. "Gramercy Park is charm personified," Lam told Architectural Digest. "It feels like a hidden oasis in the city."
The Celeb: Isaac Mizrahi, fashion designer
The Look: Refined glamour
Item to Steal: Ole Wanscher Colonial Armchair
This stunning space is everything you’d expect from the celebrated designer. His signature flair, love of color, and clean lines cross over seamlessly from his fashion designs to this airy living room. The unique artwork alongside interesting antiques makes for a cool contemporary-classic mix.
The Celeb: Naomi Watts, actor and Liev Schreiber, actor and producer
The Look: Elevated family oasis
Item to Steal: Garza Marfa Saddle Leather Round Chair
If there's one thing we've come to expect from the Aussies, it's their impeccable interior design taste. They have style in droves and this living room from Naomi Watts and her partner, Liev Schreiber, is no exception. The Oscar nominee told Architectural Digest they "wanted space for the kids to grow—and for all of us,” and it certainly has a beautiful family vibe in the most elegant way possible.
The Celeb: Erin Wasson, model and designer
The Look: Eclectic chic
Item to Steal: Vintage 1970s Brown Leather Sofa
Erin Wasson's personal style is a huge inspiration for her interior design. This "flea market makeshift" look is quintessential to the model's aesthetic across her fashion and design projects. We love this chic eclectic collector's feel with serious boho vibes.
The Celeb: Kelly Klein, photographer
The Look: Modern beach house
Item to Steal: Ashlee Sisal rug
Located on the stunning Palm Beach coastline, Kelly Klein was adamant her home reflected that breezy, beachy feel. "Everything in the house is very natural—natural colors, natural woods," she told One Kings Lane. "Nothing is shiny. It’s all in its natural state.” This home is a beautiful fusion of modern clean lines with an easy coastal feel that's tranquil and inviting.
The Celeb: Lauren Santo Domingo, Vogue contributing editor and co-founder of Moda Operandi
The Look: Traditional twist
Item to Steal: Warren Platner for Knoll High Back Lounge Chair
There is something so incredibly romantic about having an apartment in Paris. Lauren Santo Domingo is living the dream with her airy space in the city of love. "The architecture was beautiful; I didn’t want to change that," she told Vogue. "But instead of gilt everywhere, I wanted to purify the space, so I used a gray patina throughout." The result is a grand mix of classic and contemporary with a bohemian sensibility. We're in love.
The Celeb: Ellen DeGeneres, comedian, actress, writer and producer; Portia de Rossi, actress
The Look: Sophisticated country
Item to Steal: Antique 1880 French Tufted Chaise
When Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi set about decorating their ranch in the Santa Monica mountains, the couple wanted something that "had a feeling of country and yet a relaxed sophistication." The result is a rustic yet highly edited living room with 20th-century designs, industrial furnishings, and French antiques. Ellen's passion for design is obvious in this beautiful living room.
The Celeb: Diane Keaton, actress
The Look: Rustic industrial
Item to Steal: Plymore Glass Display Case
While we're all familiar with her Oscar-winning films, Diane Keaton is also a design aficionado with impeccable taste. The actress loves architecture and design, which compels her to move often. "One thing I really can’t stand is thinking that anything is set in stone," she told C Home. "I don’t ever want to live like that." From this living room, it's clear she prefers monochrome homes to colorful ones. "People [should be] the color in a home,” she adds. "People coming and going really do punch [things] up."
The Celeb: Jennifer Aniston, actress
The Look: Zen-like glamour
Item to Steal: Dior coffee table book
This project was long in the making for Jennifer Aniston, but the Zen-like space overlooking Beverly Hills "vibrates with the love that created it." This living room is a lesson in rich indulgence, bursting with vibrant colors and rich textures that are exciting yet comforting, too. We just want to cuddle up on those velvet armchairs and sip red wine with the star all evening.
The Celeb: Chrissy Teigen, model; John Legend, singer-songwriter
The Look: Moody romantic
Item to Steal: Arne Norell Ilona easy chairs pair
While most clients push for more natural light in their homes, designer Don Stewart said Chrissy Teigen and John Legend both wanted a dark and moody vibe for their Manhattan apartment. This dramatic living room allows a subtle hint of dewy light peeking from behind the heavy blue curtains that are shadowed slightly by the inky leather armchairs and rich velvet sofa. It's downright dreamy and intimate.

The Celeb: Calvin Klein, designer
The Look: Sleek minimalist
Item to Steal: Lampe Gras Model 215L Floor Lamp
This Miami home is the ultimate beach house. Minimal, modern, sleek, and totally cool—everything you'd expect from the designer who spearheaded minimal fashion: Calvin Klein. The stunning home was even photographed by famed snapper Bruce Weber in 2008 for Vanity Fair. This whitewashed living room is accented with warm wood notes and a stylish black lamp. The natural light courtesy of the floor to ceiling windows is everything.
