Known for his wealth of knowledge, distinctive aesthetic and expert mixing of old and new, Eastern and Western, rich and poor, Axel Vervoordt is thought to be the most-often emulated designer. His striking, intelligently compiled spaces — along with the play of light and shadow with natural elements — is infused with history and yet filled with a sense of timelessness. The salvaged beams and pale-washed walls, slab tables and linen-slipcovered sofas and armchairs, rich antiques blending with abstract paintings has become synonymous with an elegance that surpasses time and space.
Below are three glimpses given by Kanye West on his twitter account of the rooms in his home that he designed with Vervoordt. It is reported that West and his wife Kim Kardashian have already spent $20 million on renovations since purchasing the 15,000-square-foot mansion for $20 million in 2014; a recent appraisal reportedly valued the renovated estate at $60 million. As for Vervoordt, alongside rockstars and royalty, artists, financiers, and tech tycoons, past clients also include Mick Jagger, Givenchy, Robert De Niro, Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, and Calvin Klein.
