Blake Lively Dishes on Designing Her Dream Kitchen

When the oh-so-stylish Blake Lively and hubby Ryan Reynolds moved into their $2 million home in Bedford, N.Y., visions of a decadent walk-in closet filled with her fab fashions danced through our heads!

But it looks like Reynolds' ladylove is more excited about a slightly more practical room in her new abode—the kitchen.  We were a bit surprised to learn Lively's a bit of a domestic diva, but it turns out she plans on spending a lot of time in the room.

"My kitchen is the most important part of my home," the blond beauty told Elle Décor. "It's really the family room."

What's less surprising is the fact that the former Gossip Girl star plans on creating a kitchen with as much style as any of her red carpet outfits.

"Design, whether it's on your body or in your home is the same thing," she mused. "It's mixing different colors, different textures, and unexpected patterns—elements that you wouldn't often put together in an interesting way. That's also why I look for things that you don't see everywhere, things that are elegant. And I'm always looking for pieces that make a statement."

And Lively already has a colorful centerpiece for her kitchen: a custom blue La Cornue range.

"At first I thought a fuchsia or oxblood, but the blue seems like a bold color that's still grounded, because it has a little bit of a grey undertone," she explained to the magazine. "It's a jewel tone with a little storminess."

Pretty chic for an oven. But how many cooks will be in the Lively-Reynolds kitchen? While Lively won't face much competition from her hubby, she expects her mom will want to get in on the cooking action on her fancy new range.

"But I'll have to fight my mom for it," she revealed. "She is an amazing chef."

Looks like Reynolds can look forward to plenty of yummy meals from the Lively ladies!

Do you love spending as much time in the kitchen as Blake does?
