Australian songstress Kylie Minogue is doing the real estate locomotion, with a newly listed four-bedroom, three-bathroom "maisonette" in South Kensington, London, on the market for $6.1 million.
Interior design firm Candy & Candy immaculately refurbished the home four years ago. It features rich walnut checkerboard parquet floors, marble fireplace mantels, a sweeping staircase with a patinated brass balustrade and a black lacquered handrail, bay windows, radiant floor heating, and French doors. The kitchen cabinets has custom-made walnut cabinets, marble countertops, ceramic butler sinks, a La Cornue stove, and luxury appliances. Meanwhile, the bedroom is outfitted with custom walnut closets with endless shoe racks and hanging and shelving units for Minogue's extensive wardrobe.
As for the furnishings and décor, Kylie's home is an urban dreamland, full of feminine touches like luxe velvets, crystal chandeliers, gold floral wallpaper, and pastel hues of baby blue, pale mauve, and cotton candy pink. A mix of Art Deco, Louis XIV, and new contemporary pieces keep the style from appearing too trendy; I'd compare it to a toned-down, more girlish Kelly Wearstler design. Check out the pics and tell me if you'd want to settle down in this London home.
