Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have just dropped some serious change on a new house together. House is an incredible understatement, of course; $11 million tends to get you quite a bit of square-footage, even in Bel Air. In the case of KimYe's new digs, $11 mil will get them 14,000-square-feet, to be exact.
TMZ reports that besides your standard bedrooms, kitchens and living areas, the Italian-style villa will boast indoor and outdoor swimming pools, as well as a movie theater and a full beauty salon.
Kim, Kanye Buy Mansion; Still No Wedding Plans Just Yet
The new parents-to-be decided the next logical step in their whirlwind relationship would be to find a nice, comfy, and completely over-the-top SoCal McMansion to shack up in and prepare for baby, and not a moment too soon. By next summer, the latest addition to the Kardashian Klan will be here, and he or she will need a well-appointed place to rest his or her little head.
Though Kim and Kanye's new mansion is currently under construction, it is sure to be pure perfection by the time Kim, who has more than a touch of rich-girl OCD, is through decorating it. But with a new bundle of joy and chaos (Khaos?) on the way, maybe she shouldn't waste too much time on getting things picture-perfect.
On Keeping Up With The Kardashians a few seasons back, Kim Kardashian had just finished decorating her new bachelorette pad (read: mansion) in luxe finishes and furnishings, with fabrics in a variety of beautiful textures and rich colors. The woman put down white carpet, if I remember correctly. Her mother, Kris Jenner, was so excited about Kim's new place, she wanted to throw a party. Kim was incensed; what if someone spilled a glass of red wine?
This was her domain; she had just finished setting it up to perfection, and she was completely bent out of shape at the thought of her mother actively encouraging what Kim no doubt imagined as a herd of elephant winos to trample through the place. Kim's going to have to let go of that whole perfection thing now that motherhood is looming, or she may as well check into the nearest mental health facility right now.
In fact, I'd like to take a minute to give KimYe a bit of parenting advice. Since your new home is still under construction, you're in luck. It's not too late to have the entire interior coated in Rhino Lining now, and save yourself a lot of trouble later. Throw it up on the walls, cover your $50,000 couches and club chairs in it and just hose your house down once a week.
Also, earplugs. You're welcome.
