The houses of the Kardashian clan have been splashed across screens since their reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, began. Recently, Kylie Jenner, the youngest family member, had her millennial pink home featured in the pages of Architectural Digest. Now, Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West have opened the doors of their home in the Hollywood Hills.
Kim is the cover star of the May issue of American Vogue and as such, allowed the publication into her family's inner sanctum. The house was designed by architect Axel Vervoordt, and Kanye West did a public interview with him last year about the design process. It is a huge, sprawling cavern of a house, all open white spaces and minimal furniture (how they keep it spotless with three children is beyond us...)
The Vogue team were given access inside the house to film a '73 Questions' video with the whole family present, which gives the best views of the Belgian-designed, Los Angeles home as they move from the entrance hall through to the bedroom and one of the two kitchens.
In the accompanying article with the shoot, Jonathan van Meter writes "There is a staff kitchen — where the family inevitably winds up spending most of their time together — and a show kitchen, with an island as big as a dance floor and a breakfast nook that comfortably seats 20." He adds "There is a grand center hall, and because the floors, walls, and ceilings are finished in the same color and texture (a kind of bone plaster), it messes with your perspective, like you might just have to walk all the way to infinity."
