It’s new homes time for American supermodels. Kendall Jenner, like Gigi Hadid in recent weeks, presented to the world her new home in LA, for Architectural Digest’s the September cover. Her home deeply reflects her being, with natural textures, lots of light and warm tones. Recently redesigned with the help of architects and interior designers such Kathleen and Tommy Clemens and Waldo Fernandez, the building is the perfect synthesis of a pan-architectural Mediterranean style that contaminates Los Angeles.

Kendall Jenner is ,according to Forbes, the most paid model in the world since 2018. Member of the multimillionaire and powerful Kardashian-Jenner family her figure is continuously exposed on catwalks, in global fashion-week, after-parties across the globe. "It’s the first house I’ve chosen everything about, so it reflects me and everything I love," Kenny tells Architectural Digest. Contemporary art turns out to be one of Kendall’s greatest passions, as the house features works by Barbara Kruger, Richard Prince, Raymond Pettibon, and Sterling Ruby, while a luminous wall sculpture by James Turrell, called Scorpious and which recalls the zodiac sign of Kendall (recommended by Kanye, his father-in-law and great fan of the artist) welcomes guests as soon as they enter.

Dining room and Kitchen

This area encloses the whole rural and naturalistic vocation of the house. The long table in oak and maple wood at the center of the dining room is surrounded by antique chairs in several different styles, to add thickness to the room. In the kitchen the tranquil vibe continues, moving on in a metal installation designed to keep hanging copper pots and a dark solid wood table. The hob is in white marble, in contrast to the kitchen furniture in dark forest green. "I discovered to be needing a pot filler, cause  I’m addicted to tea" says the icon of high fashion catwalks with a smile, showing the antique gold faucet installed directly at the height of the teapot.

The living room

Here conversations and glasses of wine in front of the fireplace are always on the agenda, while TV is prohibited. A 1965 phonograph stands beside the two warm beige sofas facing each other. A white pile rug by Woven decorates the floor and matches with the vintage pillows by Richard Shapiro StudioloPat McGann, and Brenda Antin, "a real little chic touch" that Kendall likes so much.

 

Art studio

The room, dedicated to the top model’s therapeutic hobby, is accessible through an extra luminous corridor, probably one of her favorite parts of the house. Equally bright is the space used as an artistic workshop, in which a wooden easel is placed at the center of the room, surrounded by large shelves and drawers that contain everything in need to satisfy any creative desire of the supermodel and her guests, for which five white robes are available, to avoid paint dirt. The sixth is signed "Kenny" in italics, with a yellow flower decoration, and it is Kendall’s personal one, who plans to paint also the curtains of the room, made specifically in canvas for the purpose.

Bar area

How can a living area be complete without a bar? To throw epic house parties you need to own your favorite bar. And Kendall chooses it in black marble with white streaks to compete with Kris, who loves saloon bars in all her homes. To complete the atmosphere of an "home party" zone the powder room follows in dark tones, characterized by a stone sink of 300 pounds, that was very difficult to move, and then "probably will never move from there" says Kendall laughing.

Fitting room, walk-in closet & Glam room

From the living area we then move to the most fashionable area of the house: Kendall calls her dressing room "Hannah Montana room", because this is the place where she prepares her outfits for public outings and events, but where she also arranges her clothes before leaving for her travels, always on the agenda. Next to the dressing room, the makeup room is spacious and bright, and has a wall covered with all her most important covers: "It’s a fashion that Kim launched and we all copied it in the family.

A wonder of colors, textures, bags and shoes from the collection fill white shelves and sorted by type of garment and color. Thanks to Mary, the wardrobe-stylist of Kendall, but also the model, who every two months a mega-decluttering. "It makes me feel better, like I’m reborn, it’s one of my favorite activities," Kenny says.  

Master bedroom

A perfect place to relax and wind down after long work days, that features an artsy antechamber with fireplace and half-circle sofa, where you can chat or read a good book. An ancient door, of Italian origin, made of wood with hand-painted decorations is hanged behind the sofa, as the main detail in this space. A neon sculpture by Tracey Emin reads: "22cm Circumference 20 cm Diameter 4.5, glad to hear you a happy girl" very provocative (words suggest the measurements of the artist’s ex). Crossing the panel the fireplace continues to burn in front of the large bed of Kendall, in front of which there is a gigantic TV. As tea lover, Kendall has a "tea station" in the room, to enjoy something hot without moving into the kitchen.

Bathroom

In the bathroom the main attraction is the gold-plated brass tub by Catchpole & Rye, which is positioned in the center of the room, where Kendall confirms to spend at least 2 or 3 hours a day, looking out from the large window and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere ofher bathroom, decorated with images of plants and flowers.

Garden

Last but not least, the real heart of the house is the garden with pool. A real outdoor room, accessible from all areas of the house that has an 80s pool, whose “kidney shape” has not been renovated to maintain the unusual vibe. In the middle of the green grass that covers the backyard, Kendall is used to welcome guests for outdoor picnics on her favorite vintage quilted duvets.

A cozy calm place, where to refresh, relax and enjoy the life “of a young female living in LA trying to have some fun” as Kendall defines herself.
