Exploring Kim Kardashian’s $60M Minimalist LA Mansion: North West’s Candid Critique and Lavish Interiors Revealed

December 20, 2023

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step inside Kim Kardashian’s “minimal monastery.”

The billionaire reality star reportedly purchased her sprawling Los Angeles mansion, which was renovated by Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt, for $20 million in 2014.

She and ex-husband Kanye West made a slew of updates to the infamously minimalistic home, which they purchased together.

When the former couple split in 2021, Kardashian was able to keep the house.

Their four young kids — North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm — have all grown up on the property, though their eldest daughter isn’t the biggest fan of the home.

“Every time I get into some kind of disagreement with my daughter North, she thinks this is a dig to me, and she’ll say, ‘Your house is so ugly. It’s all white. Who lives like this?’” Kardashian revealed during a “Mom Confessions” segment on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2021.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Read on for everything you need to know about the house.

Minimalistic design

Kardashian opted for a very simple design throughout the entire house.

“Oh, my God. I run around the house with towels,” the Skims founder told Architectural Digest in January 2018, when asked how she keeps her cream house so clean.

“You do have to just take a deep breath and say, ‘OK, it’s going to happen. We decided to have lighter colors,’” she continued.

“Our last house that we just moved out of was all grays, which was a good test because we knew we were going to move into a lighter house.”

The “Kardashians” star noted that “everything in [her] house is really minimal” — and there’s a reason for it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I find that there’s so much chaos out in the world that once I come home, I want it to be really quiet and I want everything to feel calming,” she told Vogue during a February 2022 house tour.

She chose Vervoordt to design the home after seeing some of his previous work.

“When I saw the kind of work he was doing, I thought, ‘This man could design Batman’s house.’ I had to work with him,” she revealed.

Through the years, the fashion icon has offered several glimpses of the home, including her empty foyer, long hallways and monochromatic finishings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A chaotic playroom

One of these things is not like the other.

Kardashian revealed her kids have a massive playroom, which bears little resemblance to the beige room directly outside.

“You guys always say my house is so minimal — well, you guys haven’t seen my playroom,” she said in a February 2020 Instagram Live.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas decorations

The holidays are one of Kardashian’s favorite times of the year, so it’s no surprise she goes all out on decorations.

Given the white features prominently throughout the house, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum opted to spray paint her tree white and add white lights.

The decorations also extend to her foyer, where she assembles a forest of abstract “trees” that are “so whimsical, like Whoville, but all white,” she said during a 2019 decor tour.

Security measures

It’s no surprise Kardashian takes security very seriously.

The writer who profiled the mom of four for Vogue’s May 2019 cover story revealed some intriguing details about what measures were in place to keep Kardashian’s family safe.

“I had to pass through layers of Pentagon-level security and hesitated at their forbidding front door, which looks like it might be lowered over a moat, before deciding to walk around the side and enter through the garage like a normal person,” writer Jonathan Van Meter penned upon visiting her massive abode.

He noted there was a “security pod, manned 24 hours a day” in the garage as a precaution.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unique bathroom design

The beauty mogul has also offered several glimpses inside her unique bathroom.

Her square-shaped tub — which “fits all of [her] kids“ — is concrete-colored with angular corners and sleek lines.

The shower is equally bizarre, taking up the entire length of a wall and featuring shower heads enclosed in giant glass cages.

As for her mystifying sink with no basin, designer Vervoordt and architect Claudio Silvestrin created the distinctive station after eight different prototypes for people to wash their hands.

“You can put it on as high pressure as you want, and no backsplash will come up,” Kardashian marveled.
