Celebrity Homes: A Sparkly Mansion For Kylie Jenner
As the youngest member of the Jenner / Kardashian family, Kylie Jenner is no stranger to the limelight. She recently opened up her home to the media and this Hidden Hills mansion certainly did not disappoint with its ultra-cool and sparkly interior.
At age 24, Kylie has achieved more success than most people her age. As a recognised American media personality, socialite, model, and businesswoman, she is also the owner of her very own cosmetic company Kylie Cosmetics.
Naturally, her LA home in Hidden Hills needed to be something magical. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard was tasked with conjuring up her dream home, located near Kylie’s high-profile siblings and mother, Kris Jenner. “When we started this project, she wasn’t even old enough to drink legally. This was her first really grown-up house,” explains Martyn.
A sparkly, colour-filled abode
The home had to be fun and filled with colour. For a young 20-something trendsetter, it needed to fit in with her playful personality and lifestyle. As such, everything needed to be custom designed.
In an interview with Architectural Digest, Kylie explained: “My closets and glam room are very personal to me, even down to the size of each drawer, so they fit my specific products and clothes. I spend a lot of time in those rooms, so we had to make sure they were perfect.”
Glitter and Glam
Designers answered the call with a sparkly yet sumptuous design scheme. On the more glittery end of the spectrum are the white lacquer-and-acrylic grand piano in Jenner’s monochromatic, Old/New Hollywood living room; the gold-leafed ceiling of the dining room; vintage Lucite furniture by Charles Hollis Jones; and reflective wall coverings galore.
On the plush side of the equation, designers subsequently deployed carpets of Patagonian shearling, alpaca, and silk; snow leopard–patterned velvet on the vintage Milo Baughman barstools in the lounge; and fur bedcovers.
A little luxe, a little playful. Kylie’s home is captivating with many little details that have significant meaning for the icon herself. The look is glamorous but totally inviting. Kylie loves to have people over, and there’s nothing so precious that you can’t stand, jump, or dance on it.
In the lavish family room, Kylie and her guests can take a swing on a Jim Zivic hammock suspended from the ceiling while enjoying treats from custom cocktail tables with cutouts for ice, champagne, and caviar. The entertainment continues in the bar/lounge, which is tricked out with a billiard table, arcade games, a Saint Laurent limited-edition surfboard, and, for a little added cheekiness, a group of giant condom sculptures from artist Beau Dunn’s “Size Does Matter” series. Andy Warhol dollar-sign lithographs and a dramatic portrait of the homeowner round out the art on display in the lounge.
Kylie also feels a deep connection to Marilyn Monroe, so designers therefore incorporated a series of Warhol screen prints of Marilyn along the main stairway. In fact, many of the artworks around the house have been carefully selected. Designers subsequently chose art that felt appropriate for a young collector with feminine tastes.
