Kasa de Kardashian

On Thursday morning, the design overhaul of my favorite Kardashian sister's house was unveiled by InStyle Magazine. She's been working on the project for over a year with the help of interior designer, Jeff Andrews. The two of them have collaborated to create spaces that are far more glam & over the top than I ever expected... even for a Kardashian. What's even more unexpected is how in love I am with it all...

Let's start with the office. My house doesn't have one. However, I want to have one eventually, in house #2. I love that she didn't choose traditional office furniture. Instead, she chose to repurpose her father's old desk & found vintage chairs. The colors are bold & vibrant without being matchy, matchy. I also really love the books on the walls. I get the impression that they're there solely for decorative purposes, but I love how they're grouped by color.

When I decorated Ella's room, I chose to go with neutral colors, sticking to grey & light yellow. Kourtney did the exact opposite - opting to create the girliest of nurseries. She says that it is her favorite room in her house & I can see why. I adore the wallpaper that she put on the ceiling & think it makes perfect sense - I mean that's what the baby looks at. And although I'd never have the room, I love that the crib is floating in the center of the room. I think it makes it a focal point & allows access for more than one person - perfect for adoring eyes in those first few months.

This is probably the most practical room in Koutney's house - the playroom. She chose to put magnetic paint underneath the chalkboard paint - something I plan to copy over the summer in Ella's playroom. The finishes are "low end" for the Kardashians - with most of the items coming from Ikea. I just love that she kept is simple for the kids...

Ok - so having a neon sign above your bed is a little over the top. I get that. But I love the neutrals in her bedroom. The black, tan, and gold blend well & create a luxirous sanctuary. I can't help but notice that this looks nothing like her room on the show though... I'm wondering if it's the most recent overhaul? She usually has a co-sleeper attached to the bed too... hmmm.

On the other hand... this is the room we see most often on the show - Kourtney & Scott's kitchen. I love that she kept it simple & just added pops of brass & gold throughout. The color comes from the accents - flowers, fruit, etc. My favorite part though is the mirror on her vent hood. It allows whoever is cooking to see what's going on behind them, as well as reflecting back light & making the space seem bigger. I'm already thinking about how I could replicate this in my own house...

This last room is most definitely the least practical. I mean, who really has a piano room in their house? Certainly not me. But I just thought it was too cute & over the top to not share... My favorite parts are the tee-pee for the kids & the baby pink piano. I just love that she brought the kids into an otherwise very formal space. But let's look at the chair by the piano for a second... seriously? That's just hideous. 

What do you think of Kourtney's house? Love it or hate it?
