As a Cooking Channel star, it’s no surprise the kitchen is Haylie Duff‘s favorite room in her house.
The gorgeous open space—which Duff, 30, says she essentially designed herself—features white cabinets and grey tile that took a “very long time” to come in.
The Real Girl’s Kitchen star gave PEOPLE a tour to show off some of the accents that mean the most to her—including “the ugliest mugs you’ve ever seen” and a heart decoration made of iron that has become the subject of a ton of messages from her Instagram and Twitter followers.
But we think the most enviable item is the actress’s light green lamp made from a milkshake maker.
“Matt, my fiancé, has a big sweet tooth,” she says, “and having a vintage milkshake maker lamp just seemed very appropriate for us.”
