Glimpse into Kanye's home...

I find it interesting and quite revealing visiting a person's home for the first time. Often times you will see what they display, are the items they value most in life. But no matter what, one thing is certain, you will get a great feel for another person from the pictures that hang on their walls to the books they read. I found these photos a few months ago in Interior Design Magazine of rapper, Kanye West's home in California. I thought the artwork in his home really stood out and was totally unexpected.

Do you think the interior of a home can reveal a lot about a person?





*Speaking of homes, I did a post awhile back displaying some interior spaces in my home, you can catch a glimpse here.

  1. Everything looks so clean and spare, except for the stuffed animals. They are all bright and overlapping and cuddily - the furniture is so cool-toned and calm. Interesting contrast.

    The Jetsons, I always used to watch the Jetsons.

  2. He has as many white shoes as I have black! And I just love the stuffed animal chair. Too bad my dog would DESTROY that thing.

  3. ooooo I like the soup posters and jetsons, and the shoe closet is way awesome-except the last 3 rows look like all the same pairs. LOL

    Very clean look to his place-but not lacking in personality

  6. oh my!! I love the simplicity and fun, colorful elements. And that bathroom is to die for. The fish tank above the bathtub is fantastic and would make taking a bath even more heavenly.

  8. You're right - some surprising things. It's light and airy and playful. Love the Warhol paintings and the funky chandelier. And I guess you can't have enough sneakers!

  12. Not what I would have expected of a rapper. A lot of pink and softness. I love it!

    I read somewhere that he's an artist himself, an interview or something can't recall where. Wonder if that's what motivates some of the choices in the rooms.

  15. It really opens up another side of him. I'd never have guessed he was so playful. And look at that vintage LV trunk! Good for him. Much more fun than the home I would have imagined he owned.

  16. i think all the toys and stuff indicate we might have a michael jackson part two on our hands. if he buys a ranch with carnival equipment on it...the fbi should investigate immediately.

    that being said, the vintage LV trunk is heavenly.

  17. I agree...the art work + chandeliers were a bit unexpected! It really shows me a different "artsy" side of his personality...

  18. I really don't like the man but I am impressed with the look of his home. You're right, it is rather unexpected. It's like a big kid's home, I guess he is a big kid in a lot of ways.

  24. The bathroom is just STUNNING....I don't think I've wanted a fish tank until now. haha Well maybe if i had that bathroom...other than that I wouldnt dish out money for something like that. Also I LOVE the chandelier in the bathroom, but I was told that a designer should NEVER place it over a bathtub....it DOES look like it is slightly over that tub no????

  25. Ah, he is so beautiful. ANd his place isn't that bad either. ;)
