Christina Applegate Just Updated Her 30-Year-Old Kitchen — and the Results Are Gorgeous
If you've ever had to live through a kitchen reno, then you know how disruptive it is. That's why actress Christina Applegate put off updating her home's original 1985 kitchen for so long, living with what she described as a "godawful" space for years. Then her entire house flooded, and since she had to rip up all the floors anyway, she decided she might as well embrace the chaos and update the kitchen, too.
Christina called on Laurel & Wolf, an online platform that connects people looking to design their space with a marketplace of interior designers, to help. The Vacation and Anchorman actress partnered up with Laurel & Wolf designer Jessica Today to create a kitchen area that would meet the family demands on her, husband Martyn LeNoble, and their 4-year-old daughter, Sadie LeNoble.
The renovated space includes a convenient mudroom, dining area, and an airy kitchen. "It's so much nicer, so much more comfortable," Christina says. "It's a place now where we can celebrate as opposed to a place that we want to get out of as fast as possible — which is what it was like for me for the last 20 years of living in this house."
