Reese Witherspoon's kitchen is a masterclass in style and organization — and designers say it's easy to replicate

Design experts are swooning over how well-organized it is, as well as its chic use of color and texture

I have a small blue and white kitchen and I've been looking forever for ways to elevate its decor and organization. So, when I spotted Reese Witherspoon's cooking space on The Home Edit's YouTube channel, I knew I had to dive into how to style the look in mine.

While the Legally Blonde star might be known for Elle Woods pink, in her own space she actually favors a chic blue, white, and gold scheme like me. It's also beautifully organized. I asked interior designers why her place works so well and how to replicate it at home.

If you're looking for kitchen ideas that are pretty yet incredibly practical, taking a leaf out of Reese's book is well worth doing.

Why we love Reese Witherspoon's kitchen

The first element that really captures the eye in the actor’s kitchen is the contrasting color and texture.

“Reese Witherspoon’s home is a stunning example of how dark blue and exposed brick can create a harmonious and stylish living space,” explains Nina Lichtenstein, principal designer and founder of Nina’s Home Design.

“The combination of these elements results in a space that feels both grounded and sophisticated,” she says.

Moody hues have been one of the biggest interior color trends this year, which Reese has brought in while still keeping the space bright and airy.

“This rich, deep hue can evoke a sense of calm and serenity while also providing a bold statement that doesn’t overwhelm the space,” Nina continues, “It pairs well with a variety of materials and colors, offering a sophisticated yet approachable aesthetic.”

Reese also brought in Instagram-famous decluttering pros The Home Edit, who taught her how to organize a kitchen in a streamlined way.

“The kitchen is thoughtfully zoned for different functions, with a separate coffee bar and prep area maximizing workflow,” explains Nick Chatzigeorgakis, interior designer and founder of Intrabuild.

He continues, “Pull-out drawers, spice racks, and overhead storage keep tools and dry foods accessible yet hidden.”

Bringing in custom solutions that are tailored to the space is key to having a tidy kitchen that looks gorgeous and functions brilliantly.

How to recreate Reese Witherspoon's kitchen

To recreate the look, Nick suggests focusing on luxe-looking, contrasting materials and strategic kitchen storage solutions

“Creating specialized zones and hiding small appliances will make a kitchen feel stylish yet cozy,” he explains. “For a recent client, a kitchen island with hidden storage and seating helped define a casual dining space, much like Reese Witherspoon’s."

Reese also utilizes plenty of versatile plastic storage for her rainbow-ordered goods. The ClearSpace Clear Plastic Storage Bins from Amazon are similar to the ones she uses and are BPA-free and shatterproof.

Bringing in personal style is one of my favorite interior design trends this year, and Reese has brought this into her kitchen design as well as in her pantry.

“Details like the antique-inspired faucet and hardware nod to Reese Witherspoon’s traditional Southern style,” Nick adds.

As well as this, Nina suggests combining a variety of different materials, such as gold metal open shelves and wood flooring, to keep the space dynamic and visually interesting.

“These touches of warmth contrast beautifully with blue tones, adding a layer of elegance,” she adds.

I also like how Reese’s indoor plants balance out the richness of the space with natural touches. I have plenty of greenery in my rental kitchen and have a pothos plant similar to the Costa Farms Devil’s Ivy from Walmart that has grown big, leafy trails.

“These brings in a fresh element and enhance the overall feeling of being outdoors, as seen in Reese’s light-filled kitchen,” Nina adds.

No matter what size kitchen you’re working with, you can draw elements from Reese Witherspoon’s kitchen into your own place easily.

“By making mindful choices in terms of colors, organization, and layout, you can create an elegant yet comfortable kitchen,” Nick finishes by saying.
