Celebrity Homes We Love

Celebrity Homes We Love

We're here to share our favorite celebrity homes AKA our dream homes with you. From Mindy Kaling's sophisticated yet playful New York City apartment to Doris Duke's Shangri La abode.

Mindy Kaling

Combining the right amount of color and sophistication in her New York apartment. Designed with the help of designer Sally Gotfredson and the One Kings Lane team, the home overall keeps a neutral palette but adds pops of color and texture through the choice of textiles. And we're here for it!

Minnie Driver

Designed by Peter Dunham, Driver's home plays on eccentricity. The use of color and patterned fabrics ranging from paisleys to tribal motifs are found throughout the home. Truly testing the limit of "how much is too much" in terms of patterns and prints, and coming to the conclusion that if you do it right, the limit does not exist!

Anderson Cooper

I think we can all agree that Cooper's Brazil home is the best of the best. Wilbert Das built this estate for Cooper with the local aesthetic in mind and we are obsessed. Its dreamy use of indigo textiles and natural driftwood esque furniture makes it the ideal getaway for a Manhattan-based CNN news anchor.

Brooklyn Decker

The Hollywood actress plays on rustic antiques and reclaimed wood in her families North Carolina home. Barnlike features give the home a cozy cabin feel while the use of playful shapes and subtle minimalism make it feel somewhat Nordic inspired.

Doris Duke

We do pick favorites over here, and we saved the best for last. Duke's historic Shangri La abode. Built from the ground up, filled with her own collection of art and antiques, Duke's inspiration must have stemmed from her trips to North Africa, the Middle East, and India. From a Taj Mahal inspired master bedroom to a luxurious pavilion with pillow covered swing beds. "There is nothing more luxurious than lounging on pillows outdoors" - Pia, Founder
