Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s jaw-dropping home is more than worth a tour.
Model-turned-author Chrissy is a woman of all trades. The model/cookbook author/chef/television show host/full-time mom does it all and she's shown no sign of slowing down – which is exactly why her home has to be able to support all of her on and off-duty needs. Though Chrissy has listed the home she’s shared with husband singer John Legend since 2016, a glimpse inside the house showed that she mastered the art of creating a truly bespoke living space that is warm and inviting despite the minimalist decor.

In an Instagram video (opens in new tab) posted to her account, the Cravings (opens in new tab) author lounged on her plush grey sectional while she watched television with her children, Luna and Miles. The couch itself is sleek and understated enough to fit in perfectly with the minimalist approach, but it is cozy enough that little Miles had no problem settling into it.
The minimalist-inspired design of the home is also evident in the color palette found throughout. The space is filled with muted beiges, nudes, and roses — colors that don’t overwhelm the senses and are soothing and relaxing on the eyes.
Chrissy and John created a home that was meticulously designed and clearly well-loved, and it’s no surprise that their big move is bittersweet. Though Chrissy and John weren’t willing to completely spill the beans about their new home, it’s clear it won’t be too different from their current one.
The current house includes seven bedrooms and eight baths, and over 8,200 square feet of space. There’s high drama as soon as you enter the property, with 33-foot ceilings, curving stairwell leading to a second-floor catwalk and a grand piano.
The large living room with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall with views over the canyon. The television itself is mounted on the wall above the built-in wooden console which allows it to seamlessly blend in with the rest of the decor. The console also provides a bit of much-needed storage and organization.
Another distinct feature space is its open floor design that allows the living room to flow into the kitchen. The airy kitchen has a large island, built-in shelves, and plenty of counter space.

Most importantly, the kitchen also boasts a large stove that comes complete with a stovetop grill – which is perfect for perfecting a recipe or entertaining friends and family.
The chef’s kitchen is the ideal venue for a chef-author like Chrissy to test sumptuous recipes and leads into a spacious family room.

The master suite has a brass, concrete and clay fireplace, a balcony with far-reaching views and his-and-her dressing room and walk-in closets, and an Italian-inspired ‘glam room’. All seven bedrooms are ensuite and have balconies.
Special finishes and decor include mandala-patterned ceilings from Thailand, ebonized cerused oak floors, clay-and-steel-rolled walls, onyx sinks and Italian quartz countertops.

Children's bedrooms and the play room have a similar neutral approach, but with a ton of comfy surfaces for them to relax – and of course to play.
There’s also a gym and comfy home cinema with a cool retro popcorn machine for high-end at-home movie nights.
Outside, the entertainment area includes fabulous canyon views from the pool terrace, which has a heated saltwater pool, jacuzzi, chef’s grill and wood-fired oven, while a grapevine-shaded pergola is perfect for al fresco dining.
