Once in a while, a YouTube series comes along and takes us down a rabbit hole of the content we just can’t get enough of. And if you’re ever so slightly into architecture and interior design, chances are you’ve binge watched every single Architectural Digest home tour available online. The AD YouTube channel, and more specifically, their “Open Door” celebrity home tour series, is one of the Internet’s greatest gifts. There’s just something about famously familiar faces giving us a tour of their beautiful homes in luxurious cities that is oh so satisfying to see. And if you need a little inspo for your California abode, these are the best of the best the Architectural Digest celebrity home tours have to offer.

The Coolest Architectural Digest Celebrity Homes

The Pacific Pallisades, and other cozier Hollywood neighborhoods are home to many a stars, including Dakota Johnson.

Dakota Johnson’s Architectural Digest home tour is what mid-century modern dreams are made of. The lush wood-framed house in a serene Hollywood neighborhood was only the second property Johnson had viewed in Los Angeles before making her choice to buy, and we can clearly see why. From the floor-to-ceiling windows highlighting the decorative crystals throughout the space to the sage green kitchen everyone online oh so loved, to the fruit-bearing citrus trees in her gorgeous backyard, Dakota’s Architectural Digest home tour is something we’ll never get tired of viewing.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner’s house in Arch Digest is another one we’re absolutely obsessed with. After a year-long redesign of the space, designers Kathleen and Tommy Clements and the mega-talented Waldo Fernandez transformed the supermodel’s L.A. home into a serene hideaway with warm, neutral tones and beautiful organic textures. Jenner’s Architectural Digest home tour is also quite impressive with personal artistic touches. Just off the entry, a signature James Turrell ovoid sculpture greets visitors with a calming chromatic display. We could go raving about every single room in Kendall Jenner’s home, but we have more Architectural Digest home tours to gush over.

Daveed Diggs and Emmy Raver-Lampman

The multitalented couple Daveed Diggs and Emmy Raver-Lampman have a crafty and colorful Los Angeles home you can’t help but love. The renovation of the beautiful space was overseen by Raver-Lampman herself as she worked alongside designer Mandy Cheng. The fun wallpapers, mega-cool record room, colorful furniture, and sentimental personal touches sprinkled throughout the space make Daveed Diggs’ Architectural Digest home tour an absolute delight to watch.

Los Angeles is sprawling with some of the most impressive homes, many of them originally congregate in Beverly Hills and Bel Air.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba’s impressive family home in Los Angeles is a thing of dreams. The AD cover star's space perched on the edge of a scenic, leafy canyon in L.A. offers a comfy-cozy yet uber elegant vibe that captures the actress' essence perfectly. From the sprawling yard to the warm kitchen breakfast nook, every detail in Alba’s house seems to have been crafted with family in mind. And as if her gorgeous house wasn’t enough to impress, Jessica Alba’s Architectural Digest tour also features her beautiful family throughout—swoon. 

Rainn Wilson

Rainn Wilson has a Spanish-style hacienda near the coast in Los Angeles, and to say that we’re obsessed with it would be an understatement. On this Architectural Digest home tour, Rainn and his wife Holiday take us around their beautiful home bursting with personality and delightfully colorful touches amid the earthy tones. The breezy tiled porches, high-ceiling rooms, evocative art, and Rainn’s memorabilia from his time as Dwight Schrute all seem very authentic to the couple’s personalities. We can write a whole separate article on the absolutely beautiful living room of theirs, and the pair of adorable pigs on their farm, but you’d be better off just watching the Architectural Digest home tour yourself.

Rainn Wilson and Alessandra Ambrosia are one of many celebrities who have gravitated towards the mansions on the coast of Southern California.

Chelsea Handler

Writer, comedian, and host Chelsea Handler’s Bel Air refuge is 5,572 square feet of elegant, airy goodness. The contemporary abode is an open-plan, glass window-laden oasis that is wrapped in enough lush greenery to afford Handler plenty of privacy. Peppered with amazing art in every room, Handler’s clean and crisp yet warm and cozy home is just the thing you’d like to see when tuning in to watch Architectural Digest celebrity home tours. Plus, her amazing personality and deadpan delivery of hilarious jokes just add a touch of necessary comedy that makes it all even more entertaining.

John Stamos

John Stamos’s Beverly Hills house certainly has style, but since he purchased the abode in 2005, you can tell that it has also developed plenty of soul. The feel of the house is very much classic yet rustic, with earthy tones, reclaimed materials, grand windows, and slanted ceilings. While the inside of the house is absolutely delightful, the outside portion of this Architectural Digest home tour transfers you to a fairytale land with lots of greenery, scenic L.A. views, and actual memorabilia from Disney World—how cool is that?

Alessandra Ambrosio

Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, alongside designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, has crafted a haven in Santa Monica that gives more than a few nods to her native Brazil. This lovely Architectural Digest home tour gives us a sneak peek into Ambrosio’s life and hobbies as we see her classic rock music room, photography collection, and gorgeous touches of Moroccan, Indian, and Italian furnishings that give the boho-chic space a unique feel. With so much culture, character, and soul, how could Ambrosio’s Architectural Digest home tour be left out of the list?

Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent

Last but certainly not least, famous interior designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent open up the doors to their California dream house in Hancock Park. The spectacular 1928 Spanish Colonial home is bathed in glorious sunlight, with French, Swedish, and American furnishings of wood and stone dotting the dreamy space. If you’d like to understand how to perfectly balance new and sleek pieces with true vintage and antique elements, Berkus and Brent’s Architectural Digest home tour is the crash course you need. The couple’s adorable daughter Poppy also makes a guest appearance in the video and manages to successfully steal the spotlight from her famous father in a millisecond—as she should.
