The Most Common Colors in Million Dollar Homes

Title graphic for a study about the most common colors in million dollar homes.

From sprawling estates to chic city apartments, the dwellings of celebrities offer a tantalizing glimpse into their world. While we may not all have the budget for custom marble countertops and private home theaters, we can certainly draw inspiration from the colors featured in their million (and multi-million) dollar homes. 

Five Star Painting dove into the most-viewed celebrity home tours on Architectural Digest’s YouTube channel over the past year. We uploaded room images from each celebrity’s home into Adobe's color palette generator to extract color themes for each celebrity and ultimately find the most common colors in celebrity homes.

The Most Common Colors Found Across Celebrity Homes

A bar chart showing the most common colors found across celebrity homes.

Here are the top five most common colors found across the celebrity homes analyzed:

  1. Beige
  2. Green
  3. Gray
  4. Brown
  5. Pink

The celebrity home color palettes reveal a preference for shades that evoke a sense of calm, sophistication, and connection to nature. Beige stands out in 51% of the rooms analyzed, cementing its status as the ultimate neutral. This color’s dominance is hardly surprising; it offers a versatile backdrop that can elevate any space and allows art, furniture, and accent pieces to shine. Pale taupe, tan, and dark vanilla were some of the most popular shades of beige found across celebrity homes. 

Not far behind, green and gray each make a strong showing in 49% of celebrity homes. Olive and sage were a couple of the most popular shades of green found in celebrity abodes, particularly on kitchen cabinetry and wallpaper prints, while pastel gray, stone, and silver were some of the most prominent gray shades found. 

Rounding out the top five, brown and pink add depth and diversity to the celebrity color palettes, found in 47% and 38% of the rooms analyzed, respectively. Browns like chestnut and chocolate bring a ‘90s, earthy vibe that enhances the cozy factor, while pink—ranging from rose to bold fuchsia—adds a pop of playful sophistication and whimsy. No doubt Greta Gerwig’s, “Barbie,” likely influenced this trending color.

Now, let’s take a look at the color palettes of 10 popular celebrity homes.

Travis Barker & Kourtney Kardashian

Travis Barker’s Calabasas, CA home is a masterclass in minimalism, and their Architectural Digest Open Door home tour is proof, earning over 16 million views on YouTube. In the kitchen, a cool mix of neutrals, off-white, granite gray, silver, and coffee, dominate the space while the family room features more warm tones –– rose taupe upholstery and plenty of brown wood. Burlywood and traffic gray cover the ultra-contemporary outdoor kitchen. 

Devin Booker (NBA Star)

Nestled near the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, NBA star Devin Booker's residence is a testament to natural beauty and the culture of the Southwest.

The bar area, game table, and velvet, vintage armchairs feature Aztec gold, dark gold, and russet brown. 

Emma Chamberlain

We can’t find a flaw in Emma Chamberlain’s Los Angeles home that brings the bohemian, sun-drenched vibes of California indoors via a drum set, a Mario Bellini sofa, and tons of personal artwork. Her bedroom is a serene retreat with eggshell walls, a custom, chamoisee bedframe, and cedar chest-colored bedding. Slabs of metallic bronze and golden brown onyx cover the shower in her bathroom. Pastel green and grullo mingle in the kitchen with fawn and chestnut, creating a space that’s as inviting as stylish.  

David Harbour & Lily Allen

David Harbour and Lily Allen’s Brooklyn townhome is a bold, colorful celebration of their eclectic tastes, drawing inspiration from the whimsical charm of the English countryside. The living room is drenched in green –– in the textiles, crown molding, and ceiling –– with hints of shimmery blush and carrot orange in the chintz wallpaper. The bathroom looks like a blooming English garden with green, pale chestnut, bright pink, and pale blue featured throughout. In the bedroom, shades of pink dominate the silk bedding and walls. 

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth’s European-inspired home in Montecito, CA blends classical and contemporary, with a color palette to match. The chateau-inspired entryway sets a dramatic tone with metallic green, shadow, and stone hues, accented by pale silver and smoky black. In the kitchen, a striking set of imperial blue Hermès plates meets soft, off-white cabinetry, a pale taupe farmhouse table, and copper fixtures. The dining room uses silver sand, slate gray, and white coffee for wallpaper, flooring, and an 18th-century fireplace mantel. 

Debby Ryan & Josh Dun

RuPaul’s Beverly Hills mansion showcases a glamorous color palette fit for the queen of drag. Punchy shades of orange, sherbert, platinum, and turquoise pop throughout the living room, kitchen, and primary bedroom. The tile flooring, cabinetry, wallpaper, and window treatments feature a black-and-white palette that perfectly offsets the other bold hues in the home. 

Rita Ora

In her bedroom, old-world fixtures meet serene colors like Weldon blue, old rose, and French beige. Her bonus room, which she calls a “snug,” is the female version of a man cave, complete with moody colors like sunburst, brandy pink, and smoky topaz.
