    Default Step Inside Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s Boundary-Defying Home

    When Kanye and Kim Kardashian West first encountered the house that would become their wildly idiosyncratic family refuge in suburban Los Angeles, the two had decidedly different reactions. “We passed by this incredibly extravagant house while strolling through the neighborhood. I’d just had North, and we were doing a lot of walking so I could work off some of the baby fat,” Kim recalls of their first sighting in the summer of 2013. “I didn’t really know Kanye’s style at that point, but I thought the house was perfection. Kanye was less enthusiastic. He said, ‘It’s workable.’”


    Almost seven years—and three more children—later, the Wests have transformed that real estate into one of the most fascinating, otherworldly, and, yes, strange pieces of domestic architecture on the planet. The metamorphosis of the house from suburban McMansion to futuristic Belgian monastery, as Kanye himself blithely describes it, is a story 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.

    It looks so institutional. Cold and hard.

    i covet their jean royčre polar bear sofa and armchairs and i like the kitchen but it all looks like it's part of kanye's pygmalion-esque attempt to make his house, wife and kids into basically his props.

    I like white and minimalism and I hate this.
    The only thing I like is the kitchen, because I love white and light wood together (like minimal japanese modern stuff).

    Also, I don't follow the Karadashians, do they really live like this?

    Mausoleum with a pool. How welcoming and homey.

    I hope the nannies understand those babies need more stimulation than this to develop their brains, otherwise I worry.

    The couch looks like it might be fun to roll around on but it looks like intestines to me.

    I wonder if Kanye practices being Pope in that flying buttresses hallway. No, I guess I don't wonder. He totally does.

    And I hate pretty much all this except for the plant life.

    I like the pool and the greenery. Everything else is sterile and cold.

    It’s weird as hell and I’d like to hang out in it for an hour, then run.

    I know that the kids' spaces are pretty extravagant, colorful, etc. The whole house isn't this drab.

    Overall though, I hate it.

    This^ North's room is pink and the playroom looks like a lot of fun.
