Kanye West’s unusual style is often mocked for being off-putting, so much so that it could “out-ugly Crocs.” But the rapper’s $60 million home he shares with his wife and four children might actually serve as a case study for other families. Many of the concepts are consistent with a cutting-edge design theory, which supports minimalism to promote focus, improve memory, and reduce anxiety in children. 

In the March issue of Architectural Digest, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West offer an intimate tour of their capacious 15,000-square-foot mansion, which they describe as having an aesthetic of a “futuristic Belgian monastery.”

But before you even think of shopping to upgrade your bedroom, consider these helpful pointers to make your space as luxurious as it can be.
