“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 gasps 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 quite 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 parties( like me) probably clicked on this article in search of pictures–I surely DGAF about “Axel Vervoordt”( their decorator) or quite frankly anything else having to do with the actual architectural designing of the home. 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 employed it together myself after watching a YouTube tutorial. And I’m supposed to be impressed by a “Jean Royere” sofa ??
Scrolling, moving, and I investigate a few more photographs of the dwelling. Kanye himself describes the home as” futuristic Belgian monastery”, and if you look at the Architectural Digest pictures, you’ll identify why–for a residence with a spouse, spouse, and four kids, their place is extremely f* cking lily-white and particularly f* cking evacuate. Literally everything, and I do mean everything, in this house is paler than my surface in the dead of wintertime, with not a single discoloration to be found anywhere( and I can’t even dine a salad while wearing a white shirt without messing up everything ). But I guess when you basically have unlimited money, you can pay people to supersede your Royere upholstered sitting any time the baby spits up on it.
Architectural Digest calls the residence,” a narrative of probing and passion–a testament to the iconoclastic mind of the boundary-defying musician and the fearlessness of the zeitgeist-defining reality star and entrepreneur ,” which to me is only a extremely flowery channel of saying ” these beings had not yet been real temperament 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 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 changed members of this house by distill it, and we retained pushing to make it purer and purer, ” the designer illustrates. In the living 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 grade and has been determined that your favorite shade was a defining component of your identity, simply in this case, the first graders are 40 -something-year-old billionaires and their favorite colour is actually the absence of color.
The only thing that demonstrates a modicum of personality is this giant … elephant? Snake? Life-sized stuffed animal thing.

“This house may be a case study, but our eyesight for it was built around our lineage, ” insists 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, their own families is portrait in a room dedicated exclusively to a stupendou, creature-like soft sculpture fad by artist Isabel Rower. Asked whether the cavity is a playroom or an artistry facility, Kanye demurs: “Everything we do is an art installation* and* a playroom.”. Call 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 examines effortlessly stupefying as always, but strives to convey reassuring spirit, probably from a recent round of injectables.

@kimkardashian and Kanye West take the AD Design Quiz to test 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 detect our March edition cover story .
Anyway, Kanye was asked what his favorite area 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 presented the below representation to any random person off the street, they’d probably think it was a photo of a hospital hallway. Ah, those rich get away with everything.

Kim discusses how she “loves to come back to a home full of simplicity, ” as her house 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 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 exactly allows users that. So instead I have approximately 20 sh* tty plastic makeup receptacles from Ulta scattered around my situate. One date!
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 house recreation and unpredictability, but would her whisker and kit really looks a lot like that on any normal period? I represent, yeah, maybe. But it’s just a bit extremely much of a co-occurrence that she magically comes zooming in the very instant Kim asks what the inspiration 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 forgery, but still.
I also enjoy how Kim and Kanye hindered speaking about how “family-friendly” their residence is. How family-friendly can something really be when all it takes is for one rascal blurred shoe to f* ck up your entire aesthetic? Maybe I’m simply salty because I grew up in a family home where the only thing that stimulated my parents lastly be disposed of our ugly-ass denim furniture( yes, that’s correct–DENIM) was me finally throwing up on the couch one day. How symbolic.
When asked about the design process of members of this 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 convict that has drawn sense to me still further, because there is no better way to refine a residence than to deprive it of all its knickknacks and coloring. Maybe I do know a thing or two about interior design after all…
