There are plenty of reasons people admire celebrities—their tv shows, their cars, their hair—but this Thanksgiving, it's their kitchens that are really worth coveting. From celebrity chefs, to a few of our favorite designers, we're taking a peek into the star-studded kitchens we wish we were prepping our Thanksgiving dinners in.

Martha Stewart's perfectly-appointed kitchen in Bedford, New York, comes fully stocked with everything we'd need to make the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner. Dozens of pots and pans in every size imaginable hang overhead, while the cubbies below are no doubt filled with millions of prep bowls. And in the servery next to the kitchen? Warming trays to keep our mashed potatoes warm while the turkey gets golden in the oven.
According to Food Network magazine, Ina Garten may humbly refer to her spacious, sun-filled kitchen in East Hampton as "the barn," but to us, it looks like the most luxurious Thanksgiving prep spot we've ever seen. We're imagining our guests sitting in the bar stools on the far side of the counter so we'll never feel left out of the action while we're busy cooking.
If Ina's place isn't available, we can head over to Bobby Flay's just 5 minutes away in Amagansett. Before the celeb chef's divorce from Stephanie March last spring, Elle Decor toured their home, including the vibrant teal-colored kitchen. The bright color, combined with woven chairs, will give our Thanksgiving dinner a laid-back, beachy vibe.
We'd not only love to cook Thanksgiving dinner in Emily Henderson's home, but after checking out the living room, dining room and bedroom, we're ready to move in. In the kitchen, a mix of rich green tones, brass and modern detailing sets a luxe yet comfortable scene.
There's a reason we can't get enough of Joanna Gaines' style on HGTV's "Fixer Upper", and her own kitchen, found on Magnolia Market, epitomizes the look (the lead image of this post is also Jo's kitchen, via Today.com). A mix of whitewashed and raw wood, dark metal and pristine white tile has the kind of modern yet rustic appeal that makes you feel immediately at home.
We can easily envision all of our pals gathering in Vanessa Carlton's eclectic Soho kitchen for Friendsgiving this year. And good news—Architectural Digest reports that, as of this spring, it's available for rent for a mere $15,500 per month.
Unlike every other NYC apartment kitchen we've ever seen, Nate Berkus' old pad (he no longer lives here), photographed by AD, boasts a remarkable amount of counter space.
When Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo's kitchen was spotlighted in Good Housekeeping magazine this September, we couldn't help drooling over her marble countertops and impressive collection of copper cookware. We have no doubt that her space is equipped with everything we'd need to whip up a multi-course feast.
While Amy Schumer is better know for her jokes than her bœuf bourguignon, her NYC kitchen featured in Architectural Digest is one of the most inspiring rooms in the house.
