I've added Anne Hathaway's kitchen to my long list of things she's done that are effortlessly cool. It's warm, inviting, and so on-trend.

I spotted the The Devil Wears Prada star's kitchen on Instagram and couldn't help but be dazzled by the rustic wood, the mint green cupboards, and the copper decor. I spoke to design pros to find out why they work so well and how to get the look in your home.

If you're looking for ways to bring this year's interior design trends into your home, Anne's place is a fine example of how to bring them in cleverly. 

Anne Hathaway's kitchen is wonderfully warm

Studio Shamshiri shared this gorgeous picture on Instagram of the kitchen it designed for Anne Hathaway. It’s so beautiful and is basically my dream kitchen.

“This stylishly rustic modern space captivates with its thoughtful design and serene ambiance, making it a perfect reflection of Anne’s elegant taste,” says Nina Lichtenstein, principal designer and founder of Nina’s Home Design. 

“Every element, from the choice of materials to the smallest decor details, has been meticulously curated to create a harmonious and inviting environment,” she continues.

“This continuity of material enhances the room's spaciousness and adds rustic charm,” Nina explains.

Along with this, the light mint green kitchen cabinets and shelves are chic without being too sugary-sweet. “This delicate hue adds a refreshing pop of color while maintaining a soothing, nature-inspired palette,” Nina adds.

These are also complemented beautifully by the eclectic plates and copper pans decorated on the shelves and walls. 

Nina says, “Every detail, from the choice of materials to the arrangement of decor, has been carefully considered.”

How to recreate the look

The attention to detail in Anne Hathaway’s kitchen is key to its appeal, from the use of color right up to the thoughtful decorations.

“My eyes were immediately drawn to the quirky plates and pans, which you could find your own versions of in secondhand furniture stores,” explains Emily Lambe, deputy editor of Real Homes.

“This will add a touch of vintage elegance that will contrast beautifully with modern appliances, matching the way Anne’s decor pairs with her standout oven,” she adds.

Can’t find plates you like in these? I love the Old Havana Plates from Anthropologie, which are a similar mint green to Anne’s kitchen cabinet colors and are handmade in Portugal.

You can also add two-tone kitchen contrast to your kitchen by changing up your counters with different shades.

“A black countertop with subtle white veining provides a sleek, sophisticated surface, while a darker wood countertop on the island introduces warmth,” Nina says.

If you aren’t sure how to do this in your own home, finding out how our editor Punteha van Terheyden found wrapping vs. painting countertops could come in useful.

As well as this, keeping in mind kitchen lighting ideas will help you create a breezy and open space like Anne’s.

Lighting plays a crucial role in bringing Anne’s kitchen to life,” Nina explains. “Apart from the natural light pouring in through the windows, small, striking metal pendant lights hang gracefully.”

“These pendant lights, along with strategically placed directed light sources on the ceiling, ensure the kitchen is well-lit and visually appealing,” she adds.

I like the idea of choosing LED lights, such as the Beams Lumen Ceiling Lights from Amazon that are weatherproof and have motion sensors.
