“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 pretty 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 obviously DGAF about “Axel Vervoordt”( their designer) or quite frankly anything else having to do with the actual architectural motif of the residence. I pretty much checked out after reading about Kanye’s “major acquisitions 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 visualize a few cases more pictures of the home. Kanye himself describes the home as” futuristic Belgian monastery”, and if you look at the Architectural Digest envisions, you’ll examine why–for a residence with a husband, spouse, and four kids, their plaza is extremely f* cking grey and particularly f* cking vacate. Literally everything, and I do aim everything, of members of this house is paler than my skin in the dead of wintertime, with not a single grime find work anywhere( and I can’t even devour a salad while wearing a white shirt without messing up everything ). But I suspect when you basically have unlimited money, you can pay parties to supplant your Royere upholstered sitting any time the baby spews up on it.
Architectural Digest calls the home,” a floor of probing and passion–a testament to the iconoclastic imagination of the boundary-defying musician and the fearlessness of the zeitgeist-defining reality star and entrepreneur ,” which to me is just a exceedingly flowery style of saying ” these people had not yet been real personality and are extremely f* cking affluent .”

#AD100 decorator and tastemaker @axelvervoordt describes the process of reimagining @kimkardashian and Kanye West’s California estate in terms of distillation. “Kanye and Kim craved something completely new. We didn’t talk about decoration but a kind of philosophy about how we live now and how we will live in the future. We altered the house by purify it, and we hindered pushing to make it purer and purer, ” the designer excuses. In the front room, Jean Royere upholstered setting surroundings 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 grade and decided that your favorite dye was a defining component of your identity, only in this case, the first graders are 40 -something-year-old billionaires and their favorite emblazon is actually the absence of color.
The only thing that demo a modicum of personality is this giant … elephant? Snake? Life-sized stuffed animal thing.

“This house may be a case study, but our vision for it was built around our household, ” holds 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 speedy to point out that the house is eminently kid-friendly. Above, the family is pictured in a chamber dedicated exclusively to a stupendou, creature-like soft sculpture fashioned by master Isabel Rower. Asked whether the infinite is a playroom or an art installation, Kanye demurs: “Everything we do is an art installation* and* a playroom.”. Stay the link in our chart to take a tour of the residence.

In addition to the article, there is also a video where Kim and Kanye are interviewed about their dwelling. 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 looks effortlessly stupefying as ever, but strives to convey convincing 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 expertise @axelvervoordt — and reveal what happens behind closed- door. 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 room 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 is thought to be his masterpiece. Like, could I be a designer? If you established the below portrait to any random being 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 home look like a museum but they forgot to thrown the artwork on the walls https :// t.co/ e1MjkDgEd3

Kim discusses how she “loves to come back to a residence full of clarity, ” as her live 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 area. Like, yes, I would adore for all of my makeup and robe 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 receptacles from Ulta scattered around my situate. One period!
Lastly, we have to discuss North “accidentally” “invading” their interrogation( see above video ). It is obviouslyyyy possible that North did indeed jump into the interview in a moment of pure clas merriment and unpredictability, but would her mane and attire actually look like that on any ordinary day? I intend, 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 rebuttals that it was North. I know that this pre-planned moment of spontaneity is far from the biggest thing the Kardashians have faked, but still.
I also affection how Kim and Kanye deterred speaking about how “family-friendly” their dwelling is. How family-friendly can something genuinely be when all it takes is for one swindler obscure shoe to f* ck up your entire aesthetic? Maybe I’m only salty because I grew up in a family home where the only thing that did my parents eventually be disposed of our ugly-ass denim furniture( yes, that’s correct–DENIM) was me ultimately throwing up on the couch one day. How symbolic.
When asked about the design process of the house, Vervoordt showed,” We varied members of this house by purify it, and we hindered pushing to make it purer and purer ,” which is actually the only sentence that has shaped appreciation to me so far, because there is no better way to refine a residence than to deprive it of all its knickknacks and complexion. Maybe I do know a thing or two about interior design after all…
