Kim Kardashian is getting her house ready for the holidays. Her doll house, that is! See what details made her house so uniquely special and why Kim is connected with it.
Through the magic of Instagram Stories on Saturday, Kim takes her followers on a guided tour of the custom holiday-themed doll house her mother, Kris Jenner, gave her last year for Christmas. The structure’s exterior had a mini reindeer, a wooden sled by the door, a wreath on the window, and a welcome rug with Kim’s middle name, “Noel,” embroidered in.
“This little doll house is one that my parents, like one like it, but Kourtney got it that my mom and dad got when I was growing up for Christmas,” Kim says in the first clip. “It is so special to me. Noel, that’s my middle name. With every detail to [look] through. This house is [just] so special, and I can’t wait to show you guys.”
As Kim continues her tour, shopping bags from popular designer stores are piled underneath “the white-flocked tree,” and a very1980s tiny kitchen featuring a personalized mug and Christmas cake, with a miniature “Better Homes And Gardens Cook Book.”
On the second floor, in a dressing room, a glamour gown is hung up, and in the room next to it is a large light wood canopy bed with Santa propped up. Kim described the bed as the “exact same bed” that her late dad had. Additionally, when she was a child, her father would dress up as Santa Claus, and he disappeared whenever “Santa” came. Up in the attic are even more presents, vintage board games, and old-fashioned holiday decor packed in a cardboard box, just waiting to be hung again.
If I were honest, I’d say the entire doll house strangely reminded me of the early 1990s Christmas special, Noël. In the special, a red glass ball ornament has a happiness he shares with others, and in his sixty-year life span, he witnesses life and time go by, and that’s what I see in the house. We have these fond memories growing up, and as our time shifts through the years, so does life. It can’t be frozen, so it’s important to remember the memories and try to pass them down so they’re not forgotten.
