Exclusive! Peek Inside Kourtney Kardashian's California Home
We love the eldest Kardashian sister's vibrant taste, so when we were given the chance for a sneak peek inside her entire house in Calabasas, Calif., we jumped at it. Kardashian decorated her home with designer Jeff Andrews, and the result is both a total show-stopper and -- not surprisingly -- a family affair. From a hot pink chaise lounge taken from sister Khloe (one of our favorite things), to the office desk that belonged to her dad, familial details are everywhere. "All of the books are taken from my parents and the piano has been in my home since I was born," Kardashian told InStyle.com exclusively. "I love sentimental things."
Another must-have? "I told Jeff every aspect of this house has to be kid-friendly -- no sharp edges," she said, adding that "Legos are everywhere."
The house is not only gorgeous, but functional for a working mom on the go. In her bedroom she has a cabinet that holds pre-approved outfits already put together so she can just throw something on when she's in a rush. Click through the gallery and prepare to drool.
The Living Room
The Piano Room
Jeff Andrews: "We turned what was originally intended as a formal dining room into a fun and kid-friendly music room. The black and white stripes on the walls and ceiling tie in with the surrealist whimsy of the living room, and the exquisite vintage-inspired 'Lumiere' ceiling fixture by Jean de Merry adds an unexpected touch of elegance. Kourtney’s vintage side chairs were lacquered to match the piano (a gift from mom Kris Jenner) and upholstered with one side in white and the other in black, a unique idea of Kourtney’s and a real challenge for my upholsterer! Black sheers keep the room feeling open and inviting for both kids and adults."
The Dining Room
Jeff Andrews: "Sophisticated and original was the feeling we were going for in the breakfast room. The bold roman shades sets the tone in a black, gray, and cream chevron pattern. We chose black glass for the tabletop set atop Kourtney’s cast brass ram pedestals. The funky chairs, which were originally from her father, are lacquered in black and upholstered in a coordinating black and cream textural fabric. The dramatic Jonathan Adler chandelier serves as a focal point and pulls all of the colors and finishes together. The final touch is Mason’s framed artwork to truly make this a family dining area."
The Family Room
Jeff Andrews: "The family room is a marriage of textures, pattern, and subtle neutral hues, resulting in a sophisticated and soothing feel. The hand-painted wallpaper by Twigs is the star here, complimented perfectly by a custom area rug from Mansour Modern. Sleek metal chairs from Lawson Fenning evoke classic 1960’s design, and balance well with an ultra-modern sofa. A custom A/V cabinet of my own design provides the focal point, flanked by etched ceramic lamps circa 1970. Throw pillows in a variety of plush fabrics and luxurious touches of glamor like the faux fur throw make this a room you never want to leave!"
The Master Bedroom
Jeff Andrews: "A combination of patterns, textures and shapes create a chic retreat in the glamorous master bedroom. The wallpaper by Osborne and Little emulates the luxuriousness of real travertine and provides the backdrop for the bronze, platinum, and black color palette. 'Raccoon Fur' by Benjamin Moore on the crown molding and wainscot is the perfect canvas for the custom bed and nightstands of my own design, lacquered to match. I also designed the custom pop-up TV cabinet to look more like a piece of art than furniture, and the parchment color balances perfectly with the bedding. A complimentary chevron pattern on the window treatment and throw pillow fabric by Romo make a bold visual statement. Kourtney’s own table lamps and a sexy vintage sculpture complete the look, while the neon wall sculpture by Curtis Kulig says it all."
Jeff Andrews: "Working within the parameters of the existing architecture, we used elements of brass and gold to bring a touch of glam to the kitchen. The gilt gold/silver framed mirror hung at an angle above the stove adds drama and reflects the chic Tom Dixon pendants. The chevron wallpaper above the cabinets draws your eyes upward and visually heightens the room. Funky leather stools that Kourtney found add a perfect vintage feel, while black, white, and metallic accessories (Courtly Check Enamel Tea Kettle, $98; amp Enamel Utensil Holder, $64; mackenzie-childs.com) liven up the space. State of the art appliances by Viking and SubZero make this a functional yet fun family kitchen."
Jeff Andrews: "I helped her select the fabulous and fun ceiling wallpaper, but other than that, the nursery was truly Kourtney’s labor of love-no pun intended!"
The Play Room
Jeff Andrews: "What better use of the Kardashian sisters’ Teen Choice Award surfboard than to put it on the ceiling of Kourtney’s playroom? That and the chalkboard-paint wall along with all of Mason and Penelope’s color-coordinated toys make this a perfect kids’ environment-even the black and white striped rug is cool enough for a Kardashian, but fun enough for a kid."
