A-Listers at Home: Inside the Stunning Houses of Courteney Cox, Mindy Kaling, Sophia Bush and More Interiors-Obsessed Celebs
Peyton List's Starter Home
When Peyton List needed to decorate her new home, she asked her 11 million Instagram followers for help. The account of A 1000 Times Better designer, Kristen Blazek, was the perfect mix of bohemian and youthful for the former Disney star, 19. “I really loved the aesthetic,” List tells archdigest.com.

“It felt homey and that was super important,” List tells AD of the designer's eclectic, boho style. She was so inspired, in fact, that she gave Blazek’s team a blank slate. “I told them, ‘Go in. I trust you guys.’”

Faith Hill and Tim McGraw's 'Little Town'
They replaced the modest structure with a collection of eight “pavilions” that took until 2012 to complete. “We set out to build a house. We had no idea we had to build everything else,” Hill says. “We basically had to build a little town.”

Layering in inexpensive buys from stores like HomeGoods ensures Wilson can try out trends that she wouldn't normally risk. "Inside our home the color scheme is a little more muted and natural,” she said. ”But I like to keep it light and fun when we’re having people over.”
Amanda Stanton's Bright Dining Room
The Bachelor alum needed a fresh look for the dining room in the new home she shares with daughters Charlie and Kinsley. With a little help from decorating site Lulu & Georgia, the 27-year-old was able to “channel all the knowledge I picked up from watching HGTV" to create a relaxing retreat fit for her young family, she wrote on her blog.
Amanda Stanton's Chic Space
“An all-girl house meant nothing but girly-girl elements, too!” she said. Rattan chairs, a crisp, white color scheme and fluffy pillows gave the space just that.

“Most designers have really beautiful spaces, but sometimes it’s not inviting, and that’s the opposite of how I wanted this house to be," she said of her colorful abode.

Although the overhaul faced plenty of setbacks, the entertaining-friendly result was well worth their weeks of trial and error. “We might have screwed up a little bit,” Aaron said. “But you just have to enjoy the process.”
Jaime King's Long-Term Home
With a husband and two kids, the actress's family has certainly grown since she first bought her Los Angeles home as a single gal, but she isn't ready to move on from it just yet. “I haven’t found any other place that I love like this," she told Zillow.

Sean and Catherine Lowe's Family Home
The Bachelor couple Sean and Catherine Lowe recently launched their own line of "sophisti-comfortable" sofas, inspired by their favorite at-home hobby — cuddling up on the couch. "It’s just the three of us and we can all spread out on this massive six-piece sectional and leave the stresses of everyday life behind," Sea told Wayfair.

The living room, which Sean revealed they call "The Pit," boasts pops of color, a large sectional and a 120” projection screen, “which complements ‘The Pit’ and our lifestyle nicely,” Sean joked.

Although Boss said, "We’re not MasterChefs by any means,” the kitchen is surely fit for any pro cook. The family's favorite activity though, is board games. "We have a couple new games that look really dope. We don’t have them hidden away in a box somewhere, they actually add to the décor, which is really cool," said Boss.
Courteney Cox's Forever Home
Courteney Cox's Bright Extras
Cox's designer Trip Haenisch convinced the actress to incorporate pops of color, although she wasn't originally on board with the idea. “If it was up to me, everything would have been one color — monochromatic, very simple," she said.
Courteney Cox's Updated Look
Although she has no plans to give up the pretty pad, Cox is still okay with refreshing it as her tastes evolve. “Before I was kind of into organic with modern, and now I’m into really old mixed with cleaner stuff,” she said. “I’m not really changing everything, just a shift — because why not?”

Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell doesn't have your average guest house, but it wasn't her dream space.

However now it's all of that, thanks to the expert hand of Mat Sanders of Consort Design.
