Forbes recently reported that even among extremely wealthy homeowners who rarely cook, the kitchen is now a center of importance in the home design. With large pantries, high-end appliances and opulent furnishings, the trend is toward luxury entertaining in open-concept kitchen plans with hired chefs and caterers. Sweet!
Admit it – we’ve all fantasized about what our ultra-luxury dream kitchen would look like if money were no object. With the internet at our fingertips and sites like Pinterest and Houzz, dreaming up our fantasy kitchens has become even more fun. Let’s see what some of the rich and famous have dreamed up!
Celebrity Chef Giada De Laurentiis went state-of-the-art in her spacious Pacific Palisades kitchen. Of course, she needs plenty of work space and storage space, in case she wants to film a segment of her show in this camera-ready beauty by designer Kevin Fitzsimons.
Maybe you prefer a more homey feel. No problem! Homer and Laura Oatman, of Oatman Architects, created a comfortable atmosphere in this luxurious Mediterranean Villa they designed overlooking the Pacific ocean.
If you’re fabulously wealthy, why agonize between design themes? Get one of each! Jennifer Lopez has a charming, more traditional kitchen in her California home and a stunning contemporary kitchen in her Manhattan penthouse.
More opulence, please! Well, you simply must have the top of the line luxury appliances in your luxury dream kitchen. Italian refrigerator and freezer makers, Meneghini, have the perfect mix of state-of-the-art technology and eye-catching aesthetics. This three-door Meneghini La Cambusa even has a built-in coffee maker (naturally) and features a solid wood exterior, glass shelves, and brass handles and hinges.
