“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 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 emphatically DGAF about “Axel Vervoordt”( their designer) or quite frankly anything else having to do with the actual architectural design of the home. 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 put it together myself after watching a YouTube tutorial. And I’m supposed to be impressed by a “Jean Royere” sofa ??
Scrolling, moving, and I encounter a few more pictures of the dwelling. Kanye himself describes the home as” futuristic Belgian convent”, and if you look at the Architectural Digest depicts, you’ll investigate why–for a residence with a husband, bride, and four boys, their neighbourhood is extremely f* cking grey and terribly f* cking drain. Literally everything, and I do aim everything, in this house is paler than my scalp in the dead of winter, with not a single stain to be found anywhere( and I can’t even devour a salad while wearing a white shirt without messing up everything ). But I approximate when you basically have unlimited coin, you can pay parties to change your Royere upholstered setting any time the babe spews up on it.
Architectural Digest calls the residence,” a narrative of probing and passion–a testament to the iconoclastic sentiment of the boundary-defying musician and the fearlessness of the zeitgeist-defining reality star and entrepreneur ,” which to me is only a very flowery path of saying ” these beings “havent been” real identity and are extremely f* cking wealthy .”

#AD100 designer and tastemaker @axelvervoordt describes the process of reimagining @kimkardashian and Kanye West’s California estate in terms of distillation. “Kanye and Kim missed something entirely 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 converted the chamber of representatives by purifying it, and we stopped pushing to make it purer and purer, ” the designer justifies. In the front room, Jean Royere upholstered seating encircles 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 firstly pointed and has been determined 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 shade is actually the absence of color.
The only thing that depicts 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, ” holds Kanye West of the otherworldly oasis he and wife @kimkardashian crafted alongside #AD100 designer @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, their own families is envisioned in a chamber devoted exclusively to a gargantuan, creature-like soft sculpture fashioned by creator Isabel Rower. Asked whether the cavity is a playroom or an art station, 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 is also a video where Kim and Kanye are interviewed about their residence. 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 appears effortlessly stunning as ever, but fights to convey reassuring excitement, probably from a recent round of injectables.

@kimkardashian and Kanye West take the AD Design Quiz to measure 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 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 were considered his masterpiece. Like, could I be a designer? If you evidenced the below representation to any random person off wall 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 thrown the artistry on the walls https :// t.co/ e1MjkDgEd3

Kim discusses how she “loves “re coming” to a dwelling full of clarity, ” as her live is Marie-Kondo’d to the max. This is great for them, but most people can’t exactly be this minimalist since, well, we simply don’t have the room. Like, yes, I would love for all of my makeup and garment to be tucked away into a veiled walk-in closet with “Chanel lights” that “hide your cellulite”( as Kim mentions in the video ), but my small-ass NYC apartment doesn’t exactly allows users that. So instead I have approximately 20 sh* tty plastic makeup receptacles from Ulta sowed around my residence. One daylight!
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 few moments of pure category fun and unpredictability, but would her hair and attire truly look like that on any normal date? I mean, yeah, maybe. But it’s just a little more much of a coincidence that she magically comes zooming in the very instant Kim asks what the inspiration for the chamber of representatives was, and Kanye refutes 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 likewise love how Kim and Kanye retained speaking about how “family-friendly” their home is. How family-friendly can something really be when all it takes is for one crook obscure shoe to f* ck up your entire aesthetic? Maybe I’m just salty because I grew up in a family home where the one thing that cleared my parents lastly get rid of our ugly-ass denim furniture( yes, that’s correct–DENIM) was me eventually throwing up on the couch one day. How symbolic.
When asked about the design process of the chamber of representatives, Vervoordt showed,” We converted the chamber of representatives by purifying it, and we hindered pushing to make it purer and purer ,” which is actually the only sentence that has reached appreciation to me so far, because there is no better way to purify a dwelling than to deprive it of all its knickknacks and shade. Maybe I do know a thing or two about interior design after all…
