Private viewing is taking a seasonal swerve this week. As we prepare for the biggest cook-off of the year, Mad About The House is taking a look a some celebrity kitchens. The question is will you gasp in admiration, swoon in horror or seethe with jealousy?

Take a look:

This is Hank Azaria’s Bel Air kitchen and does actually look like a proper working space.

Or do you prefer the more farmhouse appeal of Angela Lansbury?

This colourful kitchen belongs in Diane Keaton’s Spanish Colonial Revival house in Bel Air.

Ellen de Generes and Portia Rossi have a fabulous kitchen in their Beverley Hills home. I love the glass storage box, which was custom-made by the way.

Can you guess who this one belongs to? No … try again … well ok I’ll tell you. It’s Elton John and David Furnish, although it was taken in 2009 and now that they have Zachary, things may have changed a little. I’m guess they won’t have a table devoted to coloured glass vases any more for instance.

This next kitchen is very beautiful (although the cornucopia of fruit and the “artlessly” flung hat is a little artificial) and I was going to say that I reckoned its owner wasn’t much of a chef, but then I discovered that he sponsors a charity cookbook every year comprised of recipes from his fans, so you never know.

Gerard Butler describes his loft, located in a converted manufacturing warehouse in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, as a “bohemian old-world rustic château with a taste of baroque”.

This is Sting and Trudie’s Styler’s London kitchen. The ground floor, which houses the kitchen, dining area, and family room, was extensively excavated in order to lower the floor and increase the ceiling height from seven to nine feet.

Well these were my favourites, which ones do you like?

    Lots of these kitchens make me smile – plenty of bling and character! But for me the simplicity of Sting’s kitchen, more akin to bulthaup, is good. Great thing about simplicity is that it looks good in large and small spaces!
