Planning a kitchen remodel (Or just dreaming of one)? Look to famous moms like Tori Spelling, Christina Aguilera and Penelope Cruz for ideas.

No matter your style, everyone has a soft spot for their mom’s kitchen. Maybe it’s the food, maybe it’s the fact that every creaky floorboard or nicked tile holds a memory, or maybe it’s because you inherited your design sense from your dear mom (I certainly have a heightened appreciation for blue and white thanks to my mom’s kitchen).

So in honor of Mother’s Day, we’re spotlighting our favorite celebrity mom’s kitchens and pointing out some takeaways that you can try at home. Here comes the motherly advice…


The best part about Tori Spelling‘s chic black and white kitchen? The fact that the look is warmed up by rich wood flooring. If you feel like you’ve gone overboard in making your kitchen look too cool, add in some wood pieces (even small items, like bowls and accessories) to balance the look.

You’d think that diva Christina Aguilera‘s kitchen would be a toy-free-zone. But instead of fighting the inevitable, she cleverly made sure that her son’s toys are cute and color-coordinated. We’re not advising that the kid-free bring in a toy zebra but if you have children, only let the most adorable toys into your kitchen.


Oh hey, Sharon Osbourne. Way to take stainless steel beyond the appliances! If you want your cabinets to look this sleek, try grabbing some stainless steel paint and turning your plain cabinets into modern wonders.


When most people think kitchen makeovers, they think white. Ashlee Simpson proves that when you want to make a serious impact, black is the way to go. Note how her light countertops and white tiles in the backsplash keep things from getting too dark.


I’ll be honest — I’m not crazy about Penelope Cruzs kitchen. But the best kitchen makeover I can think of involves bringing Javier Bardem into the room. Maybe he’s a fan of the monotone look?
