A Cooks Life

So i love fashion, cooking, design, and all the fabulous things in life .. and well doesn't Giada de Laurentiis (chef on the Food Network) encompass all of that? - well take a look at her home she shares with her family in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles, CA. -- Architecture by Peter Cohen, AIA/Interior Design by Kevin Fitzsimons and Bonesteel Trout Hall
She's lived here for 14 years now ..
The living/dining area features a mixed-media work by Lisa Bartleson .. Lamp from Flos .. red Poliform seating.

“The kitchen is the whole reason we tore our old house down and rebuilt,” Thompson says. The couple worked with designer Kevin Fitzsimons to create a room that was organized and modern. Varenna cabinetry by Poliform. Viking appliances, Kohler faucet and sink, and Sharp television, at Abt.com.
In her office, “Giada burns the midnight oil writing recipes,” reveals Thompson. Her cookbook covers decorate the walls. “I became a chef to be in the background,” De Laurentiis says. “To make people happy but sort of live in my own world.” Ligne Roset chairs and desk.
The master bedroom has “the best view in the house,” notes Thompson. Artemide lamps. Linens and pillows from Armani/Casa. Ligne Roset sofa and dresser.
“The roof deck is placed well back from the front of the house so you can’t see it from the street,” he explains. Restoration Hardware chairs, table and umbrella.
