When Food Network chef Giada de Laurentiis and her husband, Todd Thompson, decided to renovate their Spanish-style bungalow in Pacific Palisades, they enlisted the help of architect Peter Cohen to create the clean, modern home they envisioned.
The result is a beautiful streamlined home overlooking the Santa Monica Mountains, filled with windows that allow them to embrace the incredible views. The exterior is made of African teak, white stucco, and glass that is modern without distracting from the stunning landscape. Inside, white walls draw your eye to the art, pops of color, and views.

Giada de Laurentiis Home Tour
The exterior of the bungalow is streamlined and modern with beautiful wood contrasting against white.
Inside the walls are white and paired with light floors so accents, such as these vibrant red chairs, pop with personality.
The outdoor living area is private with thick, beautiful greenery. Of course, she has an outdoor kitchen off of a cozy sitting area with a fire pit and lively orange cushions.
Vibrant art is perfectly displayed on the white walls, adding a ton of character to the space (and playing off those fun red chairs).
The kitchen is sleek in black and white with clean lines and reflective surfaces. It’s a dramatic, yet minimalist take on a classic palette.
Giada’s home office embraces a modern, white palette again, this time with a bright pop of yellow on a side chair that makes a cheerful statement.
The master bedroom looks out onto an incredible view of the water and hillside. With the walls white, it draws your attention directly to the view.
Another outdoor dining space allows you to take in the breathtaking views of the sunset while enjoying a meal.
What a gorgeous home and piece of property.
