Kim Kardashian West has once again proved that a little thing like the COVID-19 pandemic can't keep her down. On the heels of her much-talked-about 40th birthday extravaganza—in which she reportedly spent $1 million to fly her family and friends to the Brando resort on the island of Tetiaroa, French Polynesia—the makeup mogul decked out her Axel Vervoordt–designed home to make sure her four kids had an extra-special Halloween.
“Since Halloween was canceled and there’s no trick-or-treating or parties, I wanted my house to be really festive for the kids,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star explains in a video she posted to her Instagram account on Saturday, which shows a giant tarantula sitting atop her home. As she enters the house, everything around her is encased in what appears to be the spider's web. “We transformed our library into a trampoline room,” she says, showing off a room where a child is jumping on a floor made of a trampoline, and the walls are covered in white webbing with red light glowing behind it.
In further videos, she shows off the home's hallways, which we know are typically stark, gallery-like spaces with off-white Venetian-plaster walls and barely any decoration. They too are completely covered in spiderwebs and glowing with red lights. As she continues through the home, there are spiders hanging from the ceiling and perched on the floor, and even one dangling above the sleek dining room table.
In the kitchen, the webbing is less dense, but there are more large spiders lurking, and a large television plays creepy imagery. In front of it is a low, white slide, which seems to be part of the Halloween setup, but certainly blends in with the usual minimalistic, sculptural decor.
Though in the first video Kardashian says it is “my biggest nightmare to have a huge tarantula on my house,” it is likely that the idea for the spooky theme came from her eldest daughter, seven-year-old North. In a recent episode of the family's E! reality show, Kardashian explained that North loves tarantulas and has been asking her mother to get her one as a pet. “North has brought up several times now that she wants a pet spider. That is like, absolutely never gonna happen,” she said. “Never, ever, ever, as long as she's living under my roof.” Perhaps the Halloween decor was a compromise.
