Media personality Paris Hilton shared a glimpse into her mother, Kathy Hilton's kitchen – a haven for those who love classic neutral spaces – with an inevitable luxe twist.
Paris and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kathy Hilton are pictured making cookies in the traditional white kitchen, complete with patterned herringbone-style tiles and glass-fronted cabinetry that showcase the socialite's crockery and glassware. The kitchen offers a source of design inspiration for those looking to create a timeless space that is as practical as good-looking.
While Kathy's cabinetry and marble kitchen countertop are easy to admire, we admit that one accessory – her kettle faucet (seen on the tiled wall above the oven) is our firm favorite feature.

Kettle faucets, also known as pot fillers, are certainly not a new phenomenon, but they have enjoyed a surge in recent years as their practical benefits become increasingly well-known.
Everybody, from Kathy to kitchen designers to Kendall Jenner (yes, really), can't quite get enough of this timeless feature – and we understand its appeal.
'In these days of open plans and the ever-expanding professional like home kitchens, I see pot fillers reclaiming their importance,' says Los Angeles-based designer Faith Blakeney.
Alongside their practical reasons (eliminating any distance between the stove and faucet), Faith adds that kettle faucets provide a 'great excuse to add a stylish fixture' to the otherwise simple space behind the stove – just as Kathy Hilton demonstrates.

And, in the spirit of combining style and practicality, Kathy Hilton's video (above) showcases yet another functional kitchen trend – the prep sink hidden in her marble island. Much like the kettle faucets, the prep sink makes cooking notably seamless – providing water exactly where it is needed.
Both practical and luxurious, marble countertops, such as Kathy's, are especially poignant when combined with a functional prep sink that will certainly stand the test of time.
And, of course, we couldn't also help but spot Paris Hilton's kitchenware line (which you can shop below) in her mother's kitchen. These pink-hued pieces add a pocket of color to the otherwise all-white space without demanding too much attention. So, if you're looking for a hint of fun while preserving your neutral aesthetic, this cookware could be the solution.
