This Pink Kitchen Is Major Renovation Inspiration

Location: Though the address is technically on the bustling Brixton Road, the house is set back as a refuge from the action. “When you come off the street, which is really busy and hectic and polluted, and there’s this very quiet, high-walled, green garden out the back, it really does feel like a little oasis,” Rosie says.

The before: Prior to the renovation, the kitchen and living room were combined in a cramped, gloomy box. With just a single barred window, the area was so dark that Rosie needed to keep all the lights on during the day. The finishes were also rather cheap.

The inspiration: “The building itself is Victorian, but because it’s a basement flat, there are no original features—no cornicing, no historical fireplaces. If I had had those things, I probably would’ve gone for a more classical look, but I thought it would be quite nice to go for something that had echoes of modernism. I wanted it to have a slight midcentury feel, but also be quite contemporary.”

Square footage: 4 square meters (approximately 43 square feet)

Budget: £70,000 (approximately $89,700)

A smattering of artwork hangs above Rosie’s dining table. She isn’t embarrassed to confess that the California image is just the picture that came in the IKEA frame.

Main ingredients

Cabinetry: Pluck Custom Birch Plywood Cabinets with Ruskin Blossom Laminate and London Plane Veneer Fronts and Pill-Shaped Recessed Handles. “I went for the pink, which is obviously an incredible millennial cliché, but it is really lovely, soft, and easy to live with,” Rosie admits. “The wooden-fronted ones are London Plane, which is a native tree that’s found all over the city. They have a very beautiful lace grain.”

Countertops: White Corian. “I was obsessed with having really bright things because my last kitchen

Reese Witherspoon, Pink, and More Stars Convert Their Homes Into Classrooms

The shift to remote learning poses new challenges for parents everywhere. In addition to keeping a squirmy seven-year-old’s attention or learning math again, creating a school in one’s home is now part of the to-do list. Transforming a living space into an effective learning space is a feat in redesigning and repurposing. But based on what they’ve shared on Instagram, famous parents like Busy Philipps, Neil Patrick Harris, and more have managed to set their kids up for success. So if you haven’t quite nailed the home school aesthetic, read on for some inspiration.

Melissa Joan Hart

Sometimes the best way to create a hybrid space is to add one key piece of furniture. The Melissa & Joey star set up her son at an antique-style school desk, and he appears to be in the zone as he works on his numerical penmanship.

Busy Philipps

The podcast host went the dining room table route for her daughter’s remote learning base. While the space uses dark tones, the playful prints on her wallpaper and the chevron rug lend a sense of whimsy and fun that is at least somewhat appropriate for a second-grade classroom.

Casey Wilson

The Black Monday star has managed to find the animal chairs of our childhood dreams. A perfect balance between kitsch and style, this simple addition makes her house feel like a classroom. Also of note is the tray full of mini water bottles she has ready for her kindergartener son. Hydration is key to a successful year!

Jenna Fischer

Even celebrities fall victim to cluttered spaces. However, when you look past the clutter it is hard not to note how the warm woods, natural light, and perfectly worn-in table makes the Office star’s dining room perfect to transition from classroom to family dinners. She also
