“Step Inside Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s Boundary-Defying Home” is Architectural Digest ’s latest headline, and we’re sure Kourtney Kardashian is out there somewhere sh* tting her breathes with jealousy. For the rest of us, though, it’s pretty exciting to get a look inside Kim and Kanye’s house. Ever since I got a glimpse of Kim Kardashian’s fridge, I’ve been reasonably intent on seeing more of their not-so-humble abode. What can I say, it looks like a museum in there, and I’m nosy AF. Time to dive in!
Most people( like me) probably clicked on this article in search of pictures–I surely DGAF about “Axel Vervoordt”( their designer) or quite frankly anything else having to do with the actual architectural design of the residence. I pretty much checked out after reading about Kanye’s “major buys like an original Jean Royere Polar Bear sofa.” Like, cool, I got my sofa at Wayfair and placed it together myself after watching a YouTube tutorial. And I’m supposed to be impressed by a “Jean Royere” sofa ??
Scrolling, scrolling, and I view a few more photographs of the home. Kanye himself describes the home as” futuristic Belgian convent”, and if you look at the Architectural Digest draws, you’ll look why–for a dwelling with a partner, partner, and four kids, their place is extremely f* cking white-hot and extremely f* cking empty. Literally everything, and I do aim everything, in this house is paler than my scalp in the dead of wintertime, with not a single blot find work anywhere( and I can’t even chew a salad while wearing a white shirt without messing up everything ). But I guess when you basically have unlimited fund, you can pay people to oust your Royere upholstered seating any time the babe spews up on it.
Architectural Digest calls the home,” a storey of probing and passion–a testament to the iconoclastic brain of the boundary-defying musician and the fearlessness of the zeitgeist-defining reality star and entrepreneur ,” which to me is just a extremely flowery way of saying ” these beings have no real personality and are extremely f* cking prosperous .”

#AD100 designer and tastemaker @axelvervoordt describes the process of reimagining @kimkardashian and Kanye West’s California estate in terms of distillation. “Kanye and Kim required something completely new. We didn’t talk about decoration but a kind of philosophy about how “were living” now and how we will live in the future. We altered the house by distill it, and we kept pushing to make it purer and purer, ” the designer clarifies. In the front room, Jean Royere upholstered accommodating smothers a limestone cocktail table by Vervoordt. Take a look inside the home through the link in our profile.

It’s like when you were in first tier and decided that your favorite color was a defining component of your identity, merely in this case, the first graders are 40 -something-year-old billionaires and their favorite complexion is actually the absence of color.
The only thing that shows a modicum of temperament is this giant … elephant? Snake? Life-sized stuffed animal thing.

“This house may be a case study, but our image for it was built around our family, ” contends Kanye West of the otherworldly oasis he and wife @kimkardashian crafted alongside #AD100 decorator @axelvervoordt. One might wonder about the challenges of raising four small children in such a pristine, cream-colored environment, but Kim and Kanye are quick to point out that the house is eminently kid-friendly. Above, the family is pictured in a chamber devoted exclusively to a prodigiou, creature-like soft sculpture fad by artist Isabel Rower. Asked whether the infinite is a playroom or an artwork facility, Kanye demurs: “Everything we do is an art installation* and* a playroom.”. Visit the link in our chart to take a tour of the home.

In addition to the article, there existed a video where Kim and Kanye are interviewed about their home. Kanye is sitting there in a hoodie and kind of looks like a fifth-grader in the principal’s office where Kim is the principal. Kim ogles effortlessly dazing as ever, but struggles to convey persuading ardour, probably from a recent round of injectables.

@kimkardashian and Kanye West take the AD Design Quiz to research how well they know their own minimalist masterpiece–designed by #AD100 ability @axelvervoordt — and reveal what happens behind closed doors. Click the link in our bio to watch the video–with a cameo from their daughter North–and discover our March edition cover story .
Anyway, Kanye was asked what his favorite chamber he designed with Axel was, and he said the hallway. Below is said hallway. Kanye said, “We pushed it to minimize it and make it as strong as possible and as simple as possible.” Once again, I know NOTHING, but I’m kind of dying that this hallway is what he considers to be his masterpiece. Like, could I be a designer? If you demonstrated the below slide to any random person off wall street, they’d probably think it was a photo of a hospital hallway. Ah, those rich get away with everything.
why does Kim’s mansion look like a museum but they forgot to thrown the artistry on the walls https :// t.co/ e1MjkDgEd3

Kim discusses how she “loves to return to a residence full of simplicity, ” as her residence is Marie-Kondo’d to the max. This is great for them, but most people can’t precisely be this minimalist since, well, we simply don’t have the room. Like, yes, I would desire for all of my makeup and garb to be tucked away into a hidden walk-in closet with “Chanel lights” that “hide your cellulite”( as Kim mentions in the video ), but my small-ass NYC apartment doesn’t precisely allows users that. So instead I have approximately 20 sh* tty plastic makeup containers from Ulta sowed around my situate. One daytime!
Lastly, we have to discuss North “accidentally” “invading” their interview( see above video ). It is obviouslyyyy possible that North did indeed jump into the interview in a moment of pure household recreation and unpredictability, but would her “hairs-breadth” and attire really look like that on any ordinary daytime? I represent, yeah, maybe. But it’s just a bit very much of a coincidence that she magically comes zooming in the very time Kim asks what the muse for members of this house was, and Kanye reactions that it was North. I know that this pre-planned moment of spontaneity is far from the biggest thing the Kardashians have forged, but still.
I likewise adoration how Kim and Kanye maintained talking about how “family-friendly” their home is. How family-friendly can something certainly be when all it takes is for one swindler blur shoe to f* ck up your entire aesthetic? Maybe I’m precisely salty because I grew up in a family home where the only thing that stirred my mothers finally get rid of our ugly-ass denim furniture( yes, that’s correct–DENIM) was me lastly throwing up on the couch one day. How symbolic.
When asked about the design process of the house, Vervoordt justified,” We changed the house by distill it, and we continued pushing to make it purer and purer ,” which is actually the only sentence that has attained gumption to me so far, because there is no better way to purify a home than to deprive it of all its knickknacks and dye. Maybe I do know a thing or two about interior design after all…
