An Inside Look

To take on the cool, airy feel Curtis Stone and his wife, actress Lindsay Price, were after, the house required a little revamping (they painted the walls white and poured concrete floors). Next came the fun part: With the help of stylist Kate Martindale, Curtis and Lindsay (OK, mostly Lindsay, he admits) filled the rooms with a mix of new and old finds. They searched flea markets and antiques shops for pieces to show off inside their massive vintage glass-front cabinets. Lindsay's grandmother's dishes are on display, as well as silver trinkets that Curtis has a habit of picking up. "That's what I want our home to be," he says, "a collection of things that reminds us of our past, present and future." 

Living Room

Curtis and Lindsay love traveling, and their living room shows it. Inspired by a trip to Morocco, the couple bought Berber throw pillows and an octagonal metal side table. The cabinets hold Vista Alegre porcelain from their honeymoon in Portugal, and the subway signs are a nod to Lindsay's time in New York City. 


Curtis' office is a bit of a man cave, by design: "I wanted it to feel more masculine than the rest of the house," he says. That meant navy walls, leather chairs and a wall of wine fridges (his favorite wine: Penfolds' Grange, a Shiraz from his native Australia). Curtis jokes that when Hudson stops in, "We do all sorts of wheelin' and dealin'. I'll make him a 'baby-cino,' which is just frothed milk with a dusting of chocolate on top."


"Why did the Realtor bring us here?" That was Curtis' initial reaction to the house. The walls were a muddy yellowish color that clashed with the dark brown ceilings, and the floors were coated in blue epoxy. But then he caught a glimpse of the backyard, with a pool, grilling area and room for a garden, plus a sweeping view of the Hollywood Hills — and he was sold. 

Outdoor Dining Area

The windows and doors leading to the backyard are almost never closed. "It's a good home for entertaining because we can just swing everything open," he says. The kitchen and living room both lead out back, so guests typically wander from the living room to the outdoor kitchen, the pool and — off in a corner of the yard — a dining area with a breathtaking view of the Hollywood Hills.
