I've never watched a single episode of the housewives series. I don't understand the reasoning behind the Bachelor. I have no single interest in who America's Next Top Model will be; and I cannot stand American Idol. The Kardashians, however, they hold a strange trance over me. Not only do I watch Keeping up with The Kardashians , but I DVR every episode, and will only watch it in complete silence, when my husband is no where to be found. I will buy any magazine that has one of their beautiful faces on the cover, and follow them all on every possible social media outlet I can. Kourtney has been my favorite for as long as I can remember, but after finding out about her complete design obsession I loved her even more. When I saw Domaine Home had exclusive photos of her design loving home, I was dying to get my hands on them.
Of course, so I could share them with you:

She describes her style as Beetlejuice meets Alice in Wonderland (crushing any question of why she is my favorite). From the bold black and white stripes in her formal living room, to the calm, comfortable, and incredibly textural family room, I love it all. I'm obviously dying over those teal chairs in her living room, and the gold ram used as a base at her dining table, but what I really love is that it still works for a family. The playful teepees in the piano room and family room, the mini pink piano in the piano room, the play kitchen against the back wall in the family room where they watch movies (you can't see it here but I've seen it on the show many times) all look like they belong, but allow her two kids to play freely; reminding us all that kids stuff doesn't have to be ugly. Now let's just talk about that wallpaper (it's the Pheasant by Twigs wallpaper, for anyone interested) and it is a textural wonderland. It's hand painted and so intricate. That mixed with the amazing chevron window treatments, and the large sofa make this room comfortable and cozy. A perfect place to watch movies as a family.
