A Swarovski-Encrusted Fridge and Other Dumb Shit Kim and Kanye Are Putting in Their New House

New, 93 comments

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wouldn't want to disappoint you, so they are outfitting their newish Bel Air Crest mansion with a bunch of stupid over-the-top blinged-out crap (allegedly!). The pair paid $9 million in January for an ugly Mediterranean-ish thing in gated Bel Air Crest and they're giving it a thorough overhaul before moving in. The Sun hears that "They expect the interior to cost twice as much as the property. They're spending more than a million on a security system alone." How are they going to spend $18 million on this? Here's a list of totally insane things they're supposedly buying:

-- Four gold-plated toilets for a total of $750,000.
-- Six special-edition Savoir Royal State Beds, which take "hundreds of hours to create from a unique combination of cashmere, carded Virgin lamb's wool and Mongolian horse hair laid over hand tied, star-lashed springs ... The bed, the headboard and the canopy are all covered in the same decadent gold silk used to create iconic Hermes ties, equating to some 1,600 miles of thread in total," according to the Daily Mail. Kim and Kanye's will come with "a unique coat of arms created ... by the Royal School of Needlework." Only 60 of the beds were produced (in honor of the Diamond Jubilee) and they cost about $200,000 each.
-- "[A] Swarovski-encrusted fridge freezer and almost $1 million worth of Electrolux appliances."

Meanwhile, an obviously reliable "source" (Kris Jenner) told People "The house is gorgeous."
