Blake Lively may stay mostly quiet when it comes to her romantic business (kudos to her! We’d be gushing if Ryan Reynolds was our main squeeze!), but she’s happy to share other, more style-oriented details of her domestic bliss.
The 25 year-old Gossip Girl star is featured in the latest issue of Elle Decor, in the kitchen she designed in her Bedford, NY home with Ryan. She dishes on what she thinks a home should be and how her interior design sensibilities kicked into gear.
Blake says that she and Ryan picked the house because they loved the location. Bedford is a town in Westchester County that boasts high class charm. It’s close to NYC, but offers refuge from the chaos of the city, which must come in handy when you’re being chased around by the paps!
The kitchen is the most important part of the home, Blake says, and calls it “the family room.” She goes on to say that when it comes to the sleek, modern design of the one she now shares with Ryan, she let her intuition lead the way.
“You have to go with your instinct,” she says. “If you don’t try it, you end up doing it later anyway, and then you end up paying to do it twice! There are things that I just have to try. And yes, sometimes it doesn’t work, but I really think you should just do what makes you happy.”
Sounds good to us, and looks even better. We wonder what sorts of things Blake likes to whip up in the kitchen for her family nights, and yes, we wonder if there’ll be something else baking in the oven for she and Ryan soon!
