The youngest “self-made” billionaire at the age of 21, thanks to her makeup company, claiming to have brought in $400 million revenue in its first 18 months. With 124 million followers on Instagram—her single post would garner millions of likes and comments. Quoting a common phrase, “when Kylie talks, people listen.” She is the ultimate celebrity and influencer, and it is astonishing to witness in social media how she achieved all that at her age.
Los Angeles AD100 designer, Martyn Lawrence Bullard is known for his luxurious and comfortable interiors, He was entitled to conjure a dream house for the almost-billionaire superstar. Located in the Los Angeles suburb of Hidden Hills, near Kylie’s siblings’ homes and their mother, Kris Jenner. Creating Kylie’s “first grown-up house“ featuring his equally eclectic and sophisticated interior design.
“Color was essential. I love pink, and I wanted a lot of it! My closets and glam room are very personal to me, even down to each drawer’s size, so they fit my specific products and clothes. I spend a lot of time in those rooms, so we had to make sure they were perfect.”– Kylie Jenner
The Entertainment starts in the family room, featuring a Jim Zivic hammock suspended from the ceiling; a bar lounge with arcade games, billiard table, a Saint Laurent limited-edition surfboard, together with sculpture and representations by renowned artists.
Kylie wanted a fresh, fun vibe to match her personality. Bullard prepared an equally gleaming and gorgeous design scheme. Featuring a white lacquer-and-acrylic grand piano in the monochromatic living room–with ostensibly liquescent brass consoles riff on the drip patterns of the makeup line’s signature packaging; the dining room’s gold-leafed ceiling and it’s custom-dyed leather upholstery on the dining chairs, ranging from cruse to pale pink to deep garnet, just to match her lipstick collection; reflective wall coverings galore; and vintage furniture by Charles Hollis Jones–An American Artist and Designer famous for his use of acrylic and lucite. He also stationed carpets made from alpaca, silk, and Patagonian shearling; snow leopard–patterned velvet on the vintage Milo Baughman barstools in the lounge; and fur bedcovers.
Midway through, Kylie pregnancy compelled a retrofit for a nursery and playroom.
“Stormi has definitely taken over the house with her toys, And not just any old binkies and baubles. it’s all about the bling—a Fendi baby stroller and a Lamborghini child’s car are among the many high-end playthings.”Jenner
Several masterpieces were also featured in Kylie’s glamorous walls, such as Beau Dunn’s “Size Does Matter” Sculpture series, Andy Warhol’s dollar sign lithographs and Marilyn Monroe Screen Prints, and a dramatic portrait of Kylie Jenner all displayed in the lounge and some in the hallway. Additional wall arts such as the neon sculpture “I Can’t Believe How Much You Love Me” by Tracey Emin with a vibe of the dynamo’s dazzling home; Jean-Michel Basquiat screen print in the living room; Damien Hirst “I Love You” butterfly silk screens in the dining room; and the black-and-white photographs of Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, and Twiggy as well. “Everything reflected so much of Kylie’s personality.” Bullard says.
