As if the two kitchens and custom sink designs didn't tip you off, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's white mansion is—er—a little more high-maintenance than your average family home. Our recent discovery? The pad's floors require much more than a bucket of soap and water to get clean. Like, a European plane ticket's worth more.
A recent Forbes article on Ye describes the power couple's Hidden Hills, California home—which they moved into in 2017—as such: "The lushly landscaped exterior of the property he s with his wife, Kim Kardashian West, and their four children (North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm) serves as stark contrast to the unadorned alabaster walls within. Nearly every surface is a monastic shade of white. The floors are made of a special Belgian plaster; if scuffed, the delicate material can be repaired only by a crew flown in from Europe."
Yes, you read that right.
The all-white home is nothing less than pristine. But what do you expect when Kayne designed the home with the help of two minimal masters, interior designer Alex Vervoordt and architect Claudio Silverstine? Kim even described the home as a "minimal monastery," in a "73 Questions" video interview with Vogue.
But their home wasn't always this way. The couple originally bought the home for $20 million, and in 2018 Kris Jenner tweeted the home was worth $60 million—now that's what you call a home renovation.
Having a home like this and four kids doesn't seem ideal— I can only imagine what Kim and Kanye go through. Kim told Architectural Digest,"Oh my God. I run around the house with towels. You just have to take a deep breath and say, ‘Ok, it’s going to happen. We decided to have light colors," in response to how she handles having four kids in an all white home.
But we have to admit, the on-call European cleaner may be juust a tad more of a help than we plebeians are used to.
