Anyone who has been tasked with decorating a home knows that things can get costly very quickly, especially when you factor in designer furniture and original artwork. Fittingly, interior design has become a passion for many wealthy celebrities. Here’s a look at 10 design-obsessed bold-faced names to inspire your next project.

Brad Pitt

The actor is so obsessed with interior design that he launched his own furniture collection, telling Architectural Digest, “I’m drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale. When I received my first paycheck from my now known day job, I spent it on a period Craftsman chair and a Frank Lloyd Wright–wannabe lamp.”

Courteney Cox

The actress wanted to be an architect way before she ever found herself in Hollywood. In fact, she even took college classes in the field. Now with plenty of money in the bank, she’s been able to put her passion to good use by renovating and flipping houses that have been featured in countless glossies over the years. Most recently, Courteney renovated her new Malibu home.

Kelly Wearstler

Kelly may be best known to the general public as a judge on Bravo’s Top Design and as a fashion/accessories designer, but her background — and the bread and butter of her business — is interior design. Her uniquely quirky aesthetic is the perfect inspiration for anyone looking for ideas on how to add personality to their home space.

Rachel Zoe bookRachel Zoe

It was hard to watch her reality show and not have total design envy. She has parlayed her enviable style into a new book, Living in Style, and a slew of articles on her lifestyle site.

Diane Keaton

The actress is such a design enthusiast that she’s contributed articles on a number of occasions to Remodelista

Gwyneth Paltrow

The Goop founder, known for covering luxe living, has made her passion for home decor known via a number of posts on her site.

Tory Burch

Not only has the designer called a sprawling apartment in The Pierre hotel home, but she revamped a classic 25-room Southampton mansion, designed for formal entertaining, into a beautiful yet homey place for her and her children.

Adam Levine

He may not be a bachelor, but Adam did the ultimate bachelor move when he reconfigured his Hollywood Hills home. He converted his four-bedroom space into a huge, one-bedroom home. He then worked with 20th century design collector and co-owner of vintage clothing boutique Resurrection, Mark Haddawy, to outfit the space with a mix of items ranging from a black and white portrait of Tupac Shakur to a Philippe Starck lamp.

Jessica Alba

It’s quickly apparent when checking out her Pinterest board (aptly titled “Dream House Landscape and Architecture“) that the actress is completely design obsessed.


An interesting article ran in the mogul’s print publication that took her readers inside her own home makeover. In it, Oprah details how she has become enamored with various home trends over the years, but found that it resulted in somewhat of an impersonal environment. It took years before she realized that “where you live should reflect who you really are.”
