Finally, Kim and Kanye West have opened up their home to Architectural Digest. And it's about time too. 

The US design publication has already seen the inside of the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan; it was only a matter of time till they were invited into the West's compound.

The couple, interviewed by AD's Mayer Rus, gave the publication full access to their sprawling LA mansion. Both described the first time they saw the house. 

"We passed by this incredibly extravagant house while strolling through the neighborhood. I’d just had North, and we were doing a lot of walking so I could work off some of the baby fat,” Kim recalled.

Now seven years later, the couple and their four children have turned the house into a home only they can be proud of. 

On closer inspection, the mansion resembles a minimalist spaceship. Stark, white and with absolutely no sign of dirt, it's hard to imagine a family of six and their staff live here.

A floating stone table and various art installations are just some of the curios dispersed around their home. Kanye admits he took his inspiration from Axel Vervoordt who also oversaw the interior design.

"We changed the house by purifying it, and we kept pushing to make it purer and purer,” the designer explained to AD.

But one room that peaks curiosity is devoted exclusively to a gargantuan, creature-like soft sculpture fashioned by artist Isabel Rower. 

Asked whether the space is a playroom or an art installation, Kanye said: “Everything we do is an art installation and a playroom.”

Kim also made a revelation that she had never swam in their swimming pool. During their Q&A, she admitted that she wanted a Jacuzzi but Kanye wasn't into the design. Instead they compromised and opted for a pool which is kept hot at all times.

After posting news of their AD spread to social media, Twitter went into full rampage mode. By the looks of things, many weren't impressed; some even more confused than before. There were pertinent questions to ask, and tweeps wanted answers.
