Kim Kardashian certainly knows how to keep busy. As a mother, influencer, founder of KKW Beauty, KKW Fragrances, Skims, AND soon-to-be lawyer, Kim K.'s schedule is packed to the brim. How does she manage it all?

Photographs of her office space (designed by celebrity interior decorator Waldo Fernandez) may explain one part of how Kim is able to juggle so many different lives.

Interior design states that the casual, neutral room is perfectly configured to maximize productivity.

Kim Kardashian's stylish, minimalist office space is full of natural materials and geometric shapes. Chairs and sofas designed by Rick Owens give the room an elevated feel, while industrial details like steel beams and concrete floors help to ground the design. Modern lamps and tables contrast with potted plants and flowers for an enviable neutral room idea.

Designers say that the layout, colors and textures in the office space are uniquely created for inner peace. 'Kim Kardashian's office is thoughtfully designed to evoke a sense of peace and balance for her and her team. The symmetrical configuration, earthy neutral tones, and organic and natural elements throughout the space create a sense of serenity,' says Cory A. Ferris, head designer at Cory Alisa Fine Arts & Interior Design.

Cory Alisa Ferris has a background in fine arts including serigraphy,
painting, and lithography. She has worked in prestigious San Francisco Bay Area design firms and worked as part of the Pottery Barn product design team. When it became clear to her that she was most passionate about interior and home design, she founded Cory Alisa Fine Arts & Interior Design.

'Natural elements like the visible plants, exposed wood, and gentle, sloping lines in this space play a huge role in why this office works,' says Jennifer Ebert, digital editor at Homes & Gardens. 'These earthy touches remind us of being outdoors, helping to calm the static in our brains. A lack of stress is an essential aspect of a productive work environment, and Kim's design team definitely knows this.'

'Color and texture play a large role in how our bodies physically react to the spaces we live and work in, and it's clear Kim and her designer wanted her team to feel calm and collected when working in this space,' says interior designer Cory Ferris.

Furthermore, experts say the composition of the furniture is put together for collaboration. Cory Ferris states, 'The lower seating implies this is a room that invites a group to sit closely and comfortably together while collaborating. When a team feels relaxed and more connected, creativity and productivity increase.'

'This space is a refuge where Kim and her team can separate from the outside
world and focus on what's driving them forward,' she adds.
