Musicians tend to have really awesome homes—perhaps because they are always looking for inspiration. And though we’ve only seen glimpses of Kehlani’s house on Instagram, it seems that the twice-Grammy-nominated singer is no exception. (Hello, sunken living room.)
Recently, AD had the chance to ask Kehlani a bit more about her personal space and how she uses it when the “Nights Like This” singer gave an intimate performance at the first weekend of the American Express Platinum x Saks: Star Island Summer retreat in the Hamptons. It was the first of multiple exclusive events happening this summer to celebrate the newly refreshed slate of benefits available to AmEx Platinum cardholders, which include offerings like Camp Platinum at Equinox, shopping experiences from Saks Fifth Avenue, and dining experiences with Resy.
Kehlani told the crowd it was her first time visiting the New York hot spot, and opened up about how her home has changed since she welcomed her 2-year-old daughter Adeya. Read on to see what she had to say—and find out the surprising place in her home where she gets her best ideas.
Architectural Digest: How would you sum up your interior design style?
Kehlani: I like bohemian. Somewhere along the lines of bohemian and slightly minimalistic, but really, as much as I think I like things to be minimalistic, I don’t, actually, because I like stuff and trinkets. Gadgets.
You’re a mom to a young child—how has your home changed since welcoming your daughter into your life?
You have to have the childproof stuff on everything! We have childproof gates that you roll in front of the stairs so she doesn’t run up and down the stairs, and things to make sure she can’t open the toilet and see what’s in there.
I wouldn't have thought of the toilet thing.
You’d be surprised. You also have to get things that go on sharp pointed corners so she doesn’t bonk her head. It’s the little things.
Do you have any unexpected recommendations for other new moms?
A lot of things. It’s not unexpected, but you need one of those diaper pails. The ones that close and cut the smell.
Is there a space in your home where you can escape to be creative?
Probably my kid’s room. She comes up with the best ideas.
What about a space where you can escape for some self-care?
I like baths. I like to sit in a bath. I get really achy, so I make extravagant baths with Epsom salt, salves for after, CBD rub, menthol stuff.
When you’re on the road, do you ever bring things to make your hotel feel more like home?
No, I’m a tourist. I can be comfy anywhere.
What do you look for in a hotel?
Cleanliness is top tier. I would hope they have room service, because one thing I am definitely going to do is order everything [on the menu]. Good Wi-Fi. I love the Ritz-Carlton. They have a great spa, nice sheets, and good windows. I am an AmEx platinum cardholder, and [the card] gives you access to staying in nice places.
