Kanye West's Home: Mixing Minimalism & Pop Culture

Kanye West and his rather large ego can make him quite controversial, but we do enjoy his passion and eye for design and architecture. His current Los Angeles home is up for sale and as we were scrolling through the interior photos of the home, we were drawn to the minimalist design. We have discussed when minimalism works best before and it is a tricky aesthetic to master.

Much of contemporary pop culture is rooted in the idea of modern design. We personally enjoy the mixing of design styles. Although the Elroy art, Humberto Campana's stuffed-animal chair, and Murakami pillows add an element of color, personality, and youth to a sometimes stark minimalist interior, we would prefer to see more Andy Warhol and Murakami artwork to achieve a fresh, but luxurious consistency.

Do you think pop art as a design inspiration works well in an architectural minimalist interior? We are fortunate to have such passionate and educated readers that add depth to our topics and content and we always look forward to your insight and perspective.
