Wondering if Kim and Kanye would adopt me.
Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West have opened up the doors of their home again, this time to Architectural Digest. You'd think after Kim Kardashian's sink, soulless Christmas decorations and that fridge drama they would be a little worried about the scrutiny of their interior design choices. No, Kim invited her fans in to explain how her empty mansion came to be.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star lives in an enormous $60 million mansion in Hidden Hills, California, with husband Kanye West and their four children – North, six, Saint, four, Chicago, one, and eight-month-old Psalm. Although Kimye purchased the home in 2013, they actually didn't end up moving in until 2017, so they could have the perfect minimal monastery vibe.
The house is notoriously...empty. Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt is responsible for the minimal interiors, which includes a lot of neutral tones and…not much else.
Check out the photos for yourself.

It's safe to say, Kim and Kanye's house is always a talking point.

I would literally HATE to live in Kim Kardashian’s house omg— Blending Queen (@SkyeAsiyanbi) February 4, 2020
So stunning. Kim explained the reason why she wanted her house to look like this is because her and kanye live very busy fast pace lives that when she comes home after a long day her home calms her anxiety/ it’s zen. When u understand the person, their choices make complete sense https://t.co/nQRHgS3VNT— ANNIE DREA (@AnnieDreaXO) February 4, 2020
The soulless cursed Kardashian-West mansion is so fascinating to me and what’s even more fascinating is their choice of designers/architects. Van Duysen’s aesthetic is famously desolate and they commissioned him to create their 6 year old’s bedroom? it’s such a bizarre flex https://t.co/9F6c0bDJco— Amy Bottrill (@bottrill) February 3, 2020
It's like one of those super sterile fucked up mental asylums https://t.co/ckscGpqI3i— Haley #istandwithtaylor (@red_lip_classic) February 4, 2020
In an interview with Architectural Digest, we find out more about the Kardashian-West household. Of course, there are rooms that had been designed with the perfect selfie lighting (the theatre), in fact, lighting is a big thing for Ms Kimberly. The bathroom has become her favourite destination because, you know, it has the perfect lighting for selfies.
Kim and Kanye's eldest child North also makes an unexpected guest appearance in the interview. However, the most baffling part about the whole sit-down was Kim's admission about their $50,000 swimming pool.
"When was the last time you used the pool?" Kanye asked. She replied: "I’ve never used our pool, actually." Eh!?
Kanye was just as shocked as us, so Kim went into further detail: "Yeah, can you believe that? But I love our pool. You know we don't have a Jacuzzi?"
It must be a rich people thing, sadly can't relate.
