Unless you've been living under a rock, you know who Kim Kardashian is, so it wasn't shocking — although surely exciting — that she just scored her first solo Vogue cover. And while everyone has been talking about the fact she said she was studying to be a lawyer in the profile, there was another important thing revealed: Kim answered Vogue’s 73 Questions and in the process gave us a video tour of her stunning Calabasas home.
Dubbed a “minimal monastery” by Kim, the home is the work of Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt (in collaboration with her musician/hubby Kanye West, of course), and it's pretty much a zen fantasy.
Every inch of the home is devoid of clutter and knickknacks. In fact, most of the walls are completely bare, and all of the furnishings and floors are outfitted in shades of white or beige. The one bolt of color comes via a stunning wall of tropical plants that fronts the expansive and heavenly master suite.
In the video, Kim patiently answers Vogue’s endless questions as she leads us through various parts of the interior: the whitewashed front entryway, the serene master bedroom where Kanye and their three kids are hanging out, and a bleached-out music room featuring a Steinway piano.
But the pièce de résistance of the tour is the kitchen, which can only be described as titanic. To give you an idea of perspective, the breakfast nook table easily seats 20, and the island looks to be the size of a swimming pool. A small array of plants and earthenware dot the countertop — other than that, there are no cereal bowls, half-eaten bananas, or other detritus of family life here.
Apparently, this is just the “show kitchen,” though. There is also a “staff kitchen” where, according to Vogue, the family spends most of their time.” Good to know there's a place where the kids can make a mess!
