Blake Lively Dishes on her Dream Kitchen in ELLE Decor April 2013

Taking a break from her hectic Hollywood lifestyle, Blake Lively talked about her and hubby Ryan Reynolds” new home in the April 2013 issue of ELLE Decor.

The “Gossip Girl” vet rocked a lepord print skirt for the Joe Schildhorn-shot spread while visiting the La Cornue showroom in the Architect and Designer Building of New York City in search of the perfect appliances for the couple”s first house.

“The location is great. And we loved the kitchen. It”s really the family room,” the 25-year-old actress dished about what drew her to their new digs.

When discussing her own personal style and how it influenced her home decor, Miss Lively says, “Design, whether it”s on your body or in your home is the same thing. It”s mixing different colors, different textures, and unexpected patterns – elements that you wouldn”t have often put together in an interesting way.”

“That”s also why I look for things that you don”t seen everywhere, things that are elegant. And I”m always looking for pieces that make a statement,” she adds.

In regards to her favorite room of the house, Blake admits the kitchen is ranked number one. “Since my kitchen is the most important part of my home, I want to be creative and innovative, not only in it”s aesthetic, but also in tools that I”m using to cook.”
