Star-Studded Bathrooms: Celebrity-Inspired Tile Makeovers

Layla Sawyer

Our favourite stars are a go-to source of inspo for all things decor. These people have access to the world’s best designers, brands and architects — so why shouldn’t we turn to them for ideas on how to decorate our homes? While we might not have the budget to recreate a Saint Tropez mansion, there is one highly attainable area of celebrity homes we can emulate — the bathroom. 

From Instagram and Pinterest through to the hallowed digital pages of Architectural Digest and Vogue, being able to have a sticky-beak at your favourite celebrity’s bathroom is a unique 21st-century privilege. There are so many features to admire, from jaw-dropping tiles to custom spas and showers that look big enough to live in. We’ve done the digging for you and picked out some of the most beautiful star-studded spaces to inspire your bathroom transformation.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen

This Hollywood power couple has opted for rich, dark tiles nicely offset with wooden-look accents. The colour scheme works well for a family with young kids, as maintaining a crisp white aesthetic can be tricky with little ones running around. The two mirrors and darker colours make the space feel like it goes on for miles.

Will Ferrell

Sticking with cool tones and neutrals is an easy way to create a soothing, dreamy vibe in your bathroom, as evidenced by Will Ferrell’s slick Manhattan space. The textured subway-style tiles in the shower play nicely with the traditional marble flooring, then everything is anchored by the white vanity and splashback. It’s fresh and modern but also timeless — a tricky feat to achieve for designers.

Naomi Watts and Liev Shreiber

The beauty and drama of Naomi Watts and Liev Shreiber’s New York City digs is distilled in this outstanding bathroom. The Ralph Lauren light fixture and freestanding bathtub steal the show, but the black honeycomb tiles with contrasting grout add an extra layer of excitement. The gilded chair and mirror really tie the whole thing together, creating an old-world charm reminiscent of the Roaring ‘20s.

Khloé Kardashian

 Love them or not, reality TV’s first family are among the top tastemakers when it comes to interior design. Khloé Kardashian’s Calabasas stunner was put together as part of a build by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, featuring tiles from the inimitable Ann Sacks. The striated marble is a true sensation — the neutral tones keep it easy to work with, while the gorgeous pattern creates a visually dynamic vibe.

Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale

Going for a bold floor colour with a neutral wall is an easy way to add visual interest without going overboard — just take notes from Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale’s darling abode. This is also proof that you don’t have to stick with large-format tiles for your bathroom — the smaller square style creates a classic, somewhat retro look which is bolstered by the varying shades used. 

Paloma Faith

There’s something to be said for clashing prints and bold lines — just look at how striking songstress Paloma Faith’s bathroom is! Paloma decorated her London home by herself, taking cues from her personal eclectic style and scouring the internet for vintage pieces. Steal this look by embracing geometric-patterned tiles for the floor and some eye-popping wallpaper.

Serena Williams

White and gold really are a classic combination when it comes to bathroom decor, as evidenced by Serena Williams’ grand-slam design choices here. The combination of marble and mosaic tiles adds a subtle break between areas as well as some visual interest, but the similar colours keep things beautifully cohesive. The tapware and fixtures have been perfectly paired to accent but not overpower the space — a masterclass in design.

Sheryl Crow

Another monochrome moment that plays on classic themes — we love to see it! Sheryl Crow’s gorgeous bathroom sticks to black tiles and white grout offset with a gorgeous checkerboard-style trim but breaks it up with a stunning rug. It might seem intimidating or impractical to commit to a bathroom rug, but with the right space (and ample ventilation) it can absolutely work.

Ariana Grande

If you live a busy life akin to a pop star, why not take some soothing design inspiration from Ariana Grande? This chart-topper Los Angeles mansion is characterised by minimalist, ambient tones throughout — and this is perfectly encapsulated in the crisp, bright bathroom. The richly veined marble takes things from simple to stunning in an instant, creating a luxurious feel without being too over the top. 

Neil Patrick Harris

The Art Deco inspiration is clear here — the monochrome with rich wooden accents, not to mention those exquisite mirrors, totally give the game away. Dark honeycomb tiles bordered by black marble tiles to match the fixtures create a rich, otherworldly glamour akin to a 1920s Hollywood powder room — perfect if you want to feel like the main character every day while you’re getting ready.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

Classic creamy tones and marble reign supreme in this A-list couple’s Hamptons-style bathroom. A free-standing bathtub sets the scene as the centrepiece, which ties in perfectly with the classic white vanity (with a matching marble benchtop, of course). Opting for lighter colours can create the illusion of a more spacious bathroom — something to consider if you don’t have Hollywood levels of cash. 

Gwyneth Paltrow

While we can’t all necessarily afford a sunken built-in bath (not everyone has Goop levels of wealth), we can take design inspiration from Gwyn’s otherworldly oasis. The mixture of matte and glossy textures in this seriously soothing pale green shade creates calm and visual interest, which is further enhanced by old-school copper fixtures. The live greenery is also a superb touch. 

Forge your own path

When all is said and done, your bathroom should be a reflection of your own personal style and taste. Taking inspiration from celebrity spaces is a great starting point, but feel free to do things your way — after all, you’re the one that gets to spend time in that bathroom every day.
