Tasteful friends: chez Kim and Kanye

I feel sorry for the children.

They turned it into a shrine to whiteness. Not a fleck of colour anywhere. A mausoleum.

It's eerie - reminds me of the catacombs in Italy.

That house is frightening. As in, horror-movie-set frightening.

Changing it from McMansion to Brutalist Dwell is neither good or bad - especially if they live there only three months a year.

It’s much lower maintenance.

Kanye was a bit off balance before he met Kim, surely R5.

Do they actually live there? With kids?

by Anonymousreply 9Last Monday at 1:38 PM

I love their bathroom.

by Anonymousreply 10Last Monday at 1:39 PM

Can you imagine the kids using those vast marble corridors to skateboard or slide in? Or does Kanye scare them so much that they're frightened to do that?

It looks like a scene from American Psycho. I expect to see red blood spattering the white walls as ironic symphonic music plays in the background.

I don’t mind the monochromatic look per se if it’s well done and aesthetic. But the furniture and sculptures that I’ve seen are ugly, and the place is just cold, dead, and absolutely tasteless. Just like Kanye’s clothing line.

At least they spend enormous piles of money, trickling it down to contractors and white paint companies.

You all are so mean! No one has even mentioned the color palette. Everything from SNOW ICE to MOUNTAIN CAP. With a little WINTER FROST thrown in for contrast.

It's odd maybe but the most bizarre and shocking thing to me was the food. ALL that food. Every bit of it obviously there to be staged, as clearly determined by the way the tomatoes are in front of the taller items, the placement of the cucumbers, etc..

There is no way all of that fresh food is for two people and two little babies. Even if she fed her whole clan, it would be vulgar in its waste. It was intentionally staged and much, if not most of it was either given away (okay fine), or privately tossed in the trash a day or two later. All of it grown and purchased solely for this wasteful Human being to boast over her opulence and wealth and waste.

I grew up poor and working-class (depending on the period) in the deep, DEEP south. To us, the wealthy people in the town were the lawyers. I think about this woman and the fact she was not raised poor. Her father was wealthy, famous. She grew-up around finery and in beautiful homes. It's a bit easier to understand had she grown-up poor. But she didn't. She grew up in the epicenter of wealth, fame, and opulence. She isn't necessarily nouveau riche. So it's all the more disgusting and sad that she acts this way. Tone-deaf, prideful, selfish, gluttonous.

Not smart to have paid. Not smart.

they could live with Donna Reed in a Father Knows Best setting and still need therapy. Both parents are certifiable. Though Kim seems to be pleasant despite whatever her diagnosis is.

by Anonymousreply 28Last Monday at 2:02 PM

It’s a physical manifestation of any NYT feature describing a “journey” - out of touch blah.

Or it’s “Interiors” by Woody A.- neurotic navel gazing by the walking dead. They can’t even import Maureen Stapleton to add interest.

Better yet, It’s “White Box” with Kanye in the role of Bettina.

by Anonymousreply 29Last Monday at 2:06 PM

I’ve been inside Kris Kartrashian’s desert home, the Madison Club in La Quinta. Not much different from these after pix. Cold, white, little to no decoration, void of any personality. Same finishes.

by Anonymousreply 30Last Monday at 2:08 PM

I'm pretty sure that there are other parts of the house where they actually live.

The sad thing is that Axel Vervoordt has designed some minimalist-type spaces that actually do look livable and warm. The combination of Vervoordt and Kanye West equated to something ridiculous.

This home was a spec home built on a very large lot in Hidden Hills. The previous owner was Lisa Marie Presley. The builders bought the home, razed the house and built an amazing home on the lot which was prime real estate. Two plus acres. Two pools. An enormous home (15,000 plus square feet). Every amenity imaginable. And, yes, a vineyard in front. It was beautiful and WARM. Truly gorgeous. These bimbos lay down the 20 million for the home and then proceed to basically tear this fucking gorgeous home apart to redo it. This is for real: they filled in a brand new swimming pool with dirt because they didn’t like the location. They added on a couple of structures, one a recording studio. They tore down a wing twice to keep adding on to a closet for Kim. Another 10+ million to destroy a brand new, gorgeous home. The end result looks cold, anemic, sparse and not really a place a human would feel comfortable in.

The pix of the brand new home they bought pre destruction are there. Compare those to the current monstrosity.

OP, After a couple decades of reading daily about their offspring (and cousins), I daresay you will be sick to death of rather sorry for them.

I don't understand the "sinks" in the master bath. I don't see a bowl, or any sort of depression. It looks like the faucets just pour water onto the counter, which has a slot to drain some of it away.

They built a cookie-cutter junior executive home with contract grade finishes that looks like it belongs in the cornfields outside Naperville, Illinois, R40.

And, a pool? With a kid? And Kanye? You can’t have a pool around Kanye because the baby can’t save him.

This is zero sum - no loss, no gain. It’s just twits playing with money.

I agree. What's so horrible if people with scads of loot waste it into the local economy.

Is this an insane asylum? Because all the white - don't want to actually delight the senses with any color or personality. "Lush foliage?" ROFL. Looks like Temecula during the summer.

They built another, bigger pool in a different position.

I really don't mind shades of white used in interior design - that isn't my issue here. The bizarre part to me is that they have NO furniture and NO art to speak of (outside of the "temporary" and seasonal decorations). What few pieces they own/display make no sense, don't fit the rooms or space that they are placed in and seem like afterthoughts. Her bathroom is about the only aesthetically pleasing area of the home. Pathetic vanity project IMO. Hidden Hills is OK but I never did understand the appeal for the $. You really aren't close to ANYTHING, but I suppose that traffic isn't much of an issue.
