“We knew what we wanted. A great big kitchen that would be the heart of the house.”
That is exactly what celebrity Chef Rachel achieved. She built this warm wooden family kitchen in her new home with husband Isaac, on land that they got as a wedding present from Isaac’s father. This truly is a chef’s kitchen with a wall of ovens, deep farm sink and Aga stove for a touch of the traditional. The hob is housed on the center island.
The layout of the enormous kitchen allows for guests to sit, stand and have a chat while watching Rachel and Isaac create magic with their meals.

The lovely parquet flooring echoes the wood in the rest of the kitchen and creates a masculine and inviting room.
4. Brooke Shields
This much loved actress, author, wife and mother decorated her Long Island cottage single-handedly. She clearly has a passion and talent for interior decorating!
“A little colour goes a long way”, she reveals as her decorating philosophy and it works beautifully here in her kitchen that has a clean white palette, energized with sparsely applied splashes of colour. This creates a kitchen that has a wholesome family quality to it, instead of an over-decorated one.
