There were high hopes for Kim kardashian and Kanye west to make things right and stay together. But it's official: "Kimye" is now back to Kim and Ye.

Kardashian, 40, has officially filed for divorce after seven years of marriage to West, 41. After months of speculation, her divorce lawyer Laura Wasser filed the papers on Friday, February 19.

Throughout their relationship, Kardashian and West have agreed on a lot of things, including the interior design of their home in Hidden Hills. The future exes bought the property for nearly $ 20 million in 2014, shortly after they had exchanged vows.

It took almost six years to renovate and is now worth around $ 60 million.

The house graced the March 2020 cover of Architectural summary magazine - and hit the internet shockwaves when fans described it as "Empty" and "monochromatic".

The featured photo for the cover story showed a beige curved staircase set against a neutral tone background.

Neutrals seemed to be the theme of the rest of the house.

While it is not clear how they will divide the assets, let's take a trip down memory lane to House "Kimye".

West told AD his inspiration came from a "metamorphosis of the suburban McMansion house into a futuristic Belgian monastery."

“When I was growing up in Chicago, before the internet, I would go to my local Barnes & Noble to check out Architectural Digest and other design magazines, as well as fashion and rap titles,” said the creator of Yeezy. “My father encouraged me. He always had graph paper I could doodle on.

Kim reluctantly admitted that she didn't know much about furniture.

“I really didn't know anything about furniture until I met Kanye,” Kim told AD, “but being with him was an amazing education. I'm really proud to know what we have and why it matters.

The couple called on the illustrious creator and creator of Belgian taste Axel Vervoordt.

The idea? Purity.

“Kanye and Kim wanted something totally new. We didn't talk about decoration but a kind of philosophy about how we live now and how we will live in the future. We changed the house by purifying it, and we kept pushing to make it purer and more pure, ”Vervoordt told AD.

It's a Buddhist worldview that is derived from the three characteristics of existence - impermanence, suffering, and emptiness - and has been a feature of Japanese design for centuries, the designer explained.

Initially, the two men agreed that the house would be kept private and kept a secret from prying eyes. In one 2018 tweet, Kardashian wrote about the pact they made, when West apparently broke the rules following a photo he posted showing the vaulted hallways.

Then the floodgates opened. Kardashian has started taking mini tours of their house, including the bathroom that is talked about around the world - especially for its lack of sinks.

Leading onto a patio, the bathroom has a “full ceiling” as a “lightbox,” Kardashian explained. “There is a slit for the water to enter,” she said.

The house has been minimally designed for the former couple and their four children.

The last look inside their home was on the Netflix series, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” hosted by David Letterman. West took Letterman, 73, to his main closet where he kept his Yeezy fashion clothes.

West revealed that the house was inspired by “wabi-sabi” vibes. The philosophy is wabi-sabi - a difficult phrase to translate which is described as "wisdom in natural simplicity", as The Post reported in 2019.

But that same piece appears to have been replaced by Kardashian's Skims clothing. In several Instagram selfies, Kardashian shows off the closet.
