Krafting the Quintessential Kardashian House
Kardashian. Perhaps one of the most sonorous names that people clamor for in the age where risky internet challenges and Instagram baddie culture are the bases of self-validation for those trapped in the temporary diversion which the virtual world offers. A life of glitz and glamour, blinding lights and controversies – despite the pettiness that people associate with celebrities, their lavish lifestyle and flashy possessions such as the extravagant Kardashian houses in Los Angeles intrigue a part of us in some ways.
Socialite Kardashians and Jenners are notorious for branching out to all sorts of expertise – Kylie’s thriving makeup line has skyrocketed her net worth to an astounding $900 Million, Kendall’s sought after modeling career has landed her magazine covers and brought her to various fashion weeks across the globe, personality star Kim monetizes her social media standing to endorse products as well as her own cosmetic and fragrance business keeping her name relevant for years now.
Seemingly the connecting forces which bind these controversial and career-driven siblings are Khloe and Kourtney who have also started building a name for themselves – away from the shadows of their other siblings frequently swamped by media attention. Khloe, who has risen to fame after her major weight loss transformation, placed her bets in a lucrative denim line which advocates body positivity called the Good American. The oldest of the bunch, Kourtney, who has disclosed her disinterest in business ventures unlike her business-oriented sisters rather has an eye for interior design; even wanting to launch her own home décor line.
Kourtney’s inclination towards establishing her home decor empire doesn’t seem too far-fetched after all, Kardashian houses situated in Calabasas, Los Angeles is and was home to the biggest names in music, sports and reality shows such as Justin Bieber, Drake and Will Smith. Calabasas is a haven of celebrity houses and a catalogue of dream home designs for the working class aspiring to build a house as majestic as the Kardashian houses. However, living in a limited space such as a condominium should not hinder you from achieving your dream home design. Be it as a way to flaunt the fruits of your labor or simply as a means to escape from the tiring reality; taking inspiration from celebrity home decorations such as Kourtney and Khloe’s houses gives us a sense of fulfillment knowing that we are living in a home patterned from renowned and eminent personalities.
KEY TO A KREATIVE KARDASHIAN HOUSE
Although clashing in style preferences and personality, sisters Kourtney and Khloe willingly decided to entrust both of their Mediterranean Revival and Tuscan-style dwellings respectively to prominent celebrity decorator, Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Being acquainted with arguably America’s most famous family, for Bullard, interpreting which design suits which Kardashian sister better is a job plausible even with his eyes closed. Kourtney’s house formerly owned by NFL star Keyshawn Johnson has a more refined and modern ambience while Khloe’s house which she snatched from Justin Bieber has a more glamorous and exotic touch to it. These million-dollar-worth and thousand-square-foot Kardashian houses built from numerous social media endorsements, business ventures and the success of their reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashian are attainable even in a condominium set up as long as you’ve got the right materials and the perfect floor plan with the assistance of design professionals such as Tokyo Grand Renovation.
Regardless of the style you have in mind for your place, a staple of every Kardashian house is the element of elegance and sophistication evoked by eye-catching home decorations that bring the whole room together. Kourtney teamed up with Bullard in designing her modern style living room for entertainment and parties rather than as a comfort space. Her ivory Christian Liagre sofas complement with dark gray soft leather accent chairs from Edelman which was custom-designed by Bullard himself along with the coffee table out of Cerused oak. Installing neutral chandeliers by Harry Balmer to balance dimensions and patterns is also a wise home decorating technique. Display sentimental ornaments to incorporate a sense of familiarity amidst the extravagant interior such as Kourtney’s Yamaha piano which her mother, Kris, gifted to her when she was a young girl.
On the one hand, Khloe’s eclectic living room also has a touch of Bullard’s creations, a ceiling covered in Schumacher wallpaper, fancy sofa upholstered in Perennials fabric, a statement rug from Anthony Monaco and hanging lanterns to add more dimension.
KITCHEN AND DINING AREA
Kourtney’s kitchen is built as a place where family cookouts and bonding can solemnly take place. Her children can assist her in cooking on her shiny Caesarstone counters which complement well with the Ann Sacks limestone flooring and wooden ceiling. Kourtney’s smart home kitchen also has a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Wolf range, and Dornbracht sink fittings which highlights the modernistic style of the room. To liven up the mood, install eccentric decorations such as the pendant lights and glass stools by Alison Berger Glassworks from Holly Hunt.
Similar to that of Kourtney’s, Khloe’s kitchen also has counters by Caesarstone, built-in ovens by Wolf and custom-designed hoods and pendant lights from Reborn Antiques adding dimensions in her sleek kitchen.
Great for hosting lavish parties for the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Bullard has designed Kourtney’s dining room to be spacious, cozy and fit for family events. A bespoke table and a suite of vintage Pierre Jeanneret wooden chairs from JF Chen introduce a certain natural feeling as opposed to the industrial José Esteves chandelier from Intérieurs, metal sculpture from Blackman Cruz and colorful framed artwork is by Roy Lichtenstein.
When wearing his name isn't enough, live in a condominium designed by Giorgio Armani himself located in Makati .
WALK IN CLOSET AND GLAM ROOM
As their Instagram posts suggest, perhaps it is no secret that Kardashians are always one step ahead when it comes to luxury clothing brands and fashion trends. This being said, a primary area of every Kardashian house is a walk in closet filled with expensive clothes, bags and shoes – this fashionista sanctuary deserves nothing but an elegant interior such as Khloe’s closet where a huge fancy chandelier from Restoration Hardware attached to her ceiling lined in Schumacher wallpaper sets up the classy mood. Her Glam room has a vintage Hollywood vibes as manifested by an old vanity mirror illuminated by incandescent bulbs, a crystal chandelier and a dark fancy marble table.
Whether you feel like renovating your room for aesthetic reasons or to increase its property value for potential future buyers, you can always count on these Kardashian bedrooms as inspiration in refurbishing your outdated room style.
Just by looking at the façade of these Kardashian houses, it is stating the obvious that the master bedroom is where you can find heaven on earth. Kourtney’s modern minimalist master bedroom’s focal point would be her elegant looking king size bed; to add a splash of color amidst the neutral tone, she has displayed artworks from James Turrell above her ivory bed. Upholstered in Edelman leather are the vintage Jean-Michel Frank lounge chairs paired with Lucca Antique 1970s’ Belgian cocktail table. Her soft-looking white carpet which resembles a cloud lifting her during a good night sleep is from the Rug Company.
Khloé’s master suite has a rather more glamorous ambience as carried by her bespoke bed upholstered in a Colefax and Fowler fabric with Hermes as the center pillow and a throw Fendi. The neutral tone is further amplified by her Holland & Sherry linen curtains and an alpaca white carpet also from the Rug Company.
As a mother of three and also an entrepreneur, Kourtney has a lot going on her plate but she has always been keen in assuring that her home is kid-friendly and worry-free as it should since a newborn Kardashian baby is being welcomed every year in the luxurious Kardashian house. Above all interior styles and home decorations, securing the safety of your child always comes first. Penelope’s pink room, Kourtney’s only princess, is a mixed of playfulness and grace perfect for little girls – the “Love Me” neon sign designed by Curtis Kulig adds a spark of youth in contrast with the Hermes throw. Kourtney’s eldest child Mason’s favorite show is Star Wars hence the constellation wallpaper and glow in the dark references. On the one hand, her youngest son Reign has a safari-themed room with a ikat curtains and a shag carpet.

Being the incredible and thoughtful hostess that she is, Kourtney has designed her guest room to be just as extravagant as any other rooms in her house intricately keeping in mind the comfort and wellness of her guests. Bedding is key for Kourtney so draping over a gentle linen from Legna on to her stunning yet cozy modern-taupe velvet bed designed by Bullard is a major home décor tip. To further amplify the style of your room, invest in dramatic statement rugs such as Kourtney’s vintage Moroccan rug from Mansour Modern. A well-lit room uplifts the mood of those who are staying hence, sources of light should not only serve as mere decorations but must also set up the atmosphere of the overall interior such as Kourtney’s black lacquer Atollo table lamps from Oluce and an industrial-style Edison chandelier. Kardashian house never misses an opportunity to hang vintage and interesting photography of prominent names in Hollywood such as the 1965 black-and-white photo of Edie Sedgwick and Andy Warhol by photographer Steve Schapiro.
For career-oriented people working at home or can’t help but bring their work even after office hours, an organized and clutter-free work space is certainly a must to keep distractions aside and productivity flowing. For Kourtney, keeping her trinkets from Bottega Veneta sorted out on her vintage desk from French furniture designer Jules Leleu is key to staying focused and motivated. A comfy chair also helps to magnify one’s concentration such as her woven accent chairs with natural fiber rattan that are originally owned by Pierre Jeannette from the 1950s. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Kardashian house without the subtle yet fancy looking wall decorations such as Cheyenne Randall’s photograph of a tattooed Audrey Hepburn and a black-and-white rock icon photography of rock icon Mick Jagger from 1964. A well-lit work space is also proven to increase efficiency – Kourtney’s glass doors which allows natural light during the daylight and a quirky floor lamp from Lucca Antiques to accompany her late at night.
Undecided whether to get a bath tub or a shower for your limited space bathroom? Perhaps this taking notes from Kourtney’s master bathroom style will help you solve your interior dilemma; her tub from Kallista sits divinely in the middle of her contemporary bathroom decorated with sinks from Kohler, limestone vanity counters by Ann Sacks and an eye-catching ceiling light from Downtown.
In contrast to Kourtney’s more refined bathroom look, Khloe’s magical master bath are for those whose dream is to be a mermaid since they were young – surrounding her Waterworks tub are ocean embellishments such as coral reef displays and a striated marble flooring by Ann Sacks.
Love them or hate them, the Kardashians are winning in the game of interior designing and taking inspiration from these luxurious Kardashian houses will certainly give you a taste of the Hollywood life.
