Supermodel Coco Rocha’s Kitchen Beautifully Blends Fashion & Function
Between juggling cover shoots to stomping down international runways, supermodel Coco Rocha leads a busy life. When she does have a moment to herself, you’ll likely find her spending time with her husband, James Conrad, and two kids, Ioni, 4, and Iver, 1, at their colorful home in Westchester, New York. As any hardworking mom would know, the heart of the home — in this case, a 50-foot long living-dining-kitchen area — has to look stylish, yet be durable enough for little hands. Coco and James decided to overhaul their 1980s abode to create an open-concept main floor fit for cooking, entertaining and running after toddlers. Scroll down to find out how they did it!
The Toronto native leans on the spacious and sleek kitchen countertop, which is made out of Silestone’s White North. The scratch-resistant material is ideal for young children (think: muddy fingers, playdough — you name it). “We kept the design simple yet contemporary,” she told Cosentino. “Materials were really crucial in bringing the whole look together.”
Copper is the star of the show in the dining room, which brings out the warmth in the wood finishes. A starburst chandelier accentuates the high ceilings and skylights, while copper chairs add an unexpected touch of metallic sheen.
For a budget-friendly approach to customized cabinetry, Coco and James opted for Ikea cabinets, and replaced the doors with walnut fronts from Semihandmade.
Coco proves that sometimes less is more when it comes to your kitchen counters. Simple white vessels holding cooking essentials, a sleek stovetop and cubic piece of art is all you need to make a subtle statement.
In the bold living room, Coco embraced her love of Pop Art with a neon LED David Bowie artwork, graphic black and white pillows and pops of zesty orange. An integrated gas fireplace and walnut cabinetry creates visual flow from the kitchen.
