My house in Los Angeles is one of my favorite places. I enjoy creating spaces that reflect my desire for comfort, while also incorporating the inspirations and experiences I discover on my travels.
I’m a great admirer of old-school style icons—Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, and Steve McQueen.
When I was a kid, my mom asked me which of my favorite meals I wanted on my birthday, which is Christmas Eve. One year, I saw these steel sticks in the cupboard—she said they were for fondue. That’s what I chose, and now fondue on Christmas is a family tradition.
Food for the soul
I love trying new restaurants. The meals you experience, especially the ones you share with loved ones, are cherished. I started framing menus from some of these restaurants years ago. Every time I look at them, the memories warm my heart.
Happy New Year!
Every year, I get to host the biggest party in Times Square. I grew up watching one of my idols, Dick Clark, count down to the new year on the annual ABC live broadcast. It’s a surreal moment now as I watch the ball drop at the epicenter of the world.
In 2010, my family and I opened our first broadcast media center, Seacrest Studios, in the pediatric hospital in my hometown of Atlanta. Now the foundation has 10 Seacrest Studios in hospitals across the country, giving kids who are facing tough health battles an interactive space to explore radio and TV—and share their talents in programs that are broadcast to patient rooms. Every time I visit, it reminds me what’s truly important—giving back.
I am traditional
I love timeless elegance, gathering with family and friends, and putting my phone away at dinnertime.
WHEN IT COMES TO GIFTS, I LIKE TO GIVE EXPERIENCES TO MY LOVED ONES, TO CREATE MEMORIES TOGETHER.Ó
