Finally, the world famous couple have opened doors to Architect Digest.  Being honest with you, after I read the article, I looked  at my desk and got rid of everything in front of me in 5 minutes.  I guess that is the  power of  minimalism.  Although I still couldn’t figure out  how they make the space so pristine with their 4 kids,  I love the whole white-on-white   museum-like interiors.   I feel how they did their current home is like they did it after a long long sought-after-thinking.  Yes, let me put this way, the home looks very spiritual just like Kayne said it is a futuristic Belgian monastery  thanks to design help from the famed Belgium designer Axel Vervoordt and Kayne’s own minimalism taste.   Each  room is just like a space with art installation.  So, let’s take a look together.

 

Neutral Color Palette

The neutral color palette is the most effective way to create a soothing, relaxed home and serve as a backdrop for museum-level artwork. However, in order to make people look great under neutral shades, good lighting plays a critical factor.

The Pool Area

You may notice there is no Jacuzzi in this pool. But don’t worry because Kayne said they wanted the whole pool as Jacuzzi. And the  design idea is to let the kids sit on the stairs and just enjoy warm water with cheers.  How do you like the idea?

The Hallway

When Axel started to work on this project, he said they did a lot of editing and they wanted to make each space purer and purer.  I totally can relate to that. As you know we live in such a chaos environment, every time when we come back home, we want to come back to calmness.  I don’t know about you, I always try to make everything organized before I leave the house.  So when I come back home, I feel good.

So you can tell the couple really keeps furniture and decor minimum.  But with the fireplace, comfy chairs  and white textures rug, the space is quite warm, inviting and intimate.
