“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 pants 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 fairly 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 definitely DGAF about “Axel Vervoordt”( their decorator) or quite frankly anything else having to do with the actual architectural blueprint 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 gave it together myself after watching a YouTube tutorial. And I’m supposed to be impressed by a “Jean Royere” sofa ??
Scrolling, moving, and I view a few cases more photographs of the home. Kanye himself describes the home as” futuristic Belgian convent”, and if you look at the Architectural Digest pictures, you’ll receive why–for a home with a partner, spouse, and four girls, their lieu is extremely f* cking grey and particularly f* cking exhaust. Literally everything, and I do aim everything, in this house is paler than my surface in the dead of wintertime, with not a single stain to be found anywhere( and I can’t even ingest a salad while wearing a white shirt without messing up everything ). But I suspect when you basically have unlimited money, you can pay beings to replace your Royere upholstered accommodating any time the babe spits up on it.
Architectural Digest calls the dwelling,” a narration of probing and passion–a testament to the iconoclastic psyche of the boundary-defying musician and the fearlessness of the zeitgeist-defining reality star and entrepreneur ,” which to me is just a exceedingly flowery lane of saying ” these beings “havent been” real temperament and are extremely f* cking affluent .”

#AD100 designer and tastemaker @axelvervoordt describes the process of reimagining @kimkardashian and Kanye West’s California estate in terms of distillation. “Kanye and Kim craved something entirely 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 converted the house by purify it, and we impeded pushing to make it purer and purer, ” the designer excuses. In the front room, Jean Royere upholstered accommodating surroundings a limestone cocktail table by Vervoordt. Take a look inside the home through the link in our chart.

It’s like when you were in first point and decided that your favorite colour was a defining component of your identity, only in this case, the first graders are 40 -something-year-old billionaires and their favorite coloring is actually the absence of color.
The only thing that shows a modicum of personality is this giant … elephant? Snake? Life-sized substance 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 speedy to point out that the house is eminently kid-friendly. Above, the family is envisioned in a chamber devoted exclusively to a prodigiou, creature-like soft sculpture fashioned by creator Isabel Rower. Asked whether the opening is a playroom or an skill facility, Kanye demurs: “Everything we do is an art installation* and* a playroom.”. Trip the link in our chart to take a tour of the home.

In addition to the article, there is also 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 gazes effortlessly stupefying as ever, but fights to convey persuasion passion, probably from a recent round of injectables.

@kimkardashian and Kanye West take the AD Design Quiz to exam how well they know their own minimalist masterpiece–designed by #AD100 flair @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 detect our March concern 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 were considered his masterpiece. Like, could I be a designer? If you evidenced the below scene to any random party off the street, they’d probably think it was a photo of a hospital corridor. Ah, those rich “re going away” with everything.
why does Kim’s live look like a museum but they forgot to given the artistry on the walls https :// t.co/ e1MjkDgEd3

Kim discusses how she “loves to come back to a home full of clarity, ” as her room 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 apparel to be tucked away into a concealed 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 to that. So instead I have approximately 20 sh* tty plastic makeup containers from Ulta scattered around my home. One day!
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 fun and unpredictability, but would her “hairs-breadth” and organization truly look like that on any normal era? I make, yeah, perhaps. But it’s just a little more much of a coincidence that she magically comes zooming in the very instant Kim asks what the muse for the members of this house was, and Kanye explanations that it was North. I know that this pre-planned moment of spontaneity is far from the biggest thing the Kardashians have forgery, but still.
I too enjoy how Kim and Kanye stopped talking about how “family-friendly” their home is. How family-friendly can something certainly be when all it takes is for one crook muddied shoe to f* ck up your entire aesthetic? Maybe I’m merely salty because I grew up in a family home where the only thing that realized my mothers lastly 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 members of this house, Vervoordt showed,” We varied the house by distill it, and we deterred pushing to make it purer and purer ,” which is actually the only convict that has realise appreciation to me still further, because there is no better way to purify a dwelling than to strip it of all its knickknacks and colouring. Maybe I do know a thing or two about interior design after all…
