A Look Inside Kim Kardashian’s Hidden Hills Home
Minimalism abounds in the Californian home of Kim Kardashian. Reports suggest that she will be keeping this bizarre multi-million dollar home as part of the divorce settlement arrangement made with Kanye West.
This striking home, located in Hidden Hills, California, graced the cover of Architectural Digest in March 2020 and made a statement for being overly minimalist and monochromatic.
Furthermore, the home took over 6 years to renovate. Today is it valued at a whopping $60 million.
Known for their extravagant lifestyles in the public eye, the home came as a surprise. Keeping things very simple and mostly white, the interior, therefore, feels light and almost surreal.
Designer Axel Vervoordt
Like most celebrities, the couple called on the services of a renowned design studio. The illustrious Belgian designer and tastemaker Axel Vervoordt was given the charge to create the home of their dreams. In an interview with Architectural Digest, Vervoordt described the process in terms of distillation. “Kanye and Kim wanted something totally 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 the house by purifying it, and we kept pushing to make it purer and purer,” the designer explains.
The furnishings were therefore kept to a bare minimum. Furthermore, the furniture mostly consists of Vervoordt’s characteristically subtle designs. These were accompanied by sympathetic creations by the likes of Royère and Pierre Jeanneret. If you’re looking for simplicity in design – this homes takes it to a whole new level!
A team effort
Vincent Van Duysen helped furnish the living room as well as the children’s bedrooms. Wirtz International Landscape Architects, under the direction of Peter Wirtz, oversaw the design of the burgeoning, purposely all-green gardens. And Family New York, led by Dong-Ping Wong and Oana Stanescu, were architectural designers on the project.
One of the more curious rooms in Kim and Kanye’s hideaway is devoted exclusively to a gargantuan, creature-like soft sculpture fashioned by artist Isabel Rower. Asked whether the space is a playroom or an art installation, the indefatigably provocative musician demurs: “Everything we do is an art installation and a playroom.”
