One of the attractions for reality TV fans is the chance to see people’s unscheduled moments on the screen. While the juiciest and most attention-grabbing moments of reality TV usually come from conflicts between participants, many fans keep an eye on the personal lives of celebrities. This is especially true for a reality show like Keeping Up with the Kardashians. After all, the set is not an abandoned island or an artificially built apartment complex throughout the season. It is the real-life homes of the Kardashian-Jenner family members who live there.
This behind the scenes looking at the personal homes of the family has fans – especially those who are interested in lighter moments of the family – delighted by the details they can see. One such detail, however, puzzles fans. What happened to Kylie Jenner’s dollar sign art?
Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kylie Has Been Protective Of Her Space
Although it may seem strange to talk about a reality TV star, Kylie Jenner seems to protect her personal space. She doesn’t often let fans into his house and only shares carefully groomed views from time to time. This has led to a lot of attention to the decor when fans take a peek.
Many of Jenner’s photographs show part of her house in the background. Her driveway is a favourite spot for the photo shoot. However, interior shots are less common, so fans are thrilled when they see details of Kylie Jenner’s personality shining in the background. When Architectural Digest had access to the house for a piece, fans could see how full of colour and life Jenner’s house is. She made many furnishing choices with a modern twist, and framed art is present in almost every room.
KUWTK: Dollar Signs Adorn Kylie’s Walls
One feature that caught the attention of fans is the prevalence of the dollar sign in Kylie Jenner’s artistic choices. A Reddit thread presents fans who have noticed that one of the selections of artwork at Kylie Jenner’s house is a framed piece that is simply a collection of black dollar signs on a white background. In addition, the Architectural Digest piece featured an image of Kylie Jenner’s lounge bar which has three separately framed, brightly colored dollar signs hanging above a teal sofa. The caption describes them as “lithographs by Andy Warhol”.
What’s in this rather unusual artistic choice? Some fans suspect that Kylie Jenner has little to do with his decorative choices: “Dude, you know she just hired an interior decorator to fill the house. She probably doesn’t even realize it’s there.”
Others feel that art speaks to its materialistic and money-centered identity. “She’s so materialistic that she’s not even pretty at this point,” wrote one. Another one agreed and added: “And so the tone is deaf too”.
Another commentator pointed out that the piece didn’t sound serious. They speculated that Kylie Jenner may have received the art as a gift after achieving her record-breaking billionaire status: “I feel that this would be a joking gift after a friend’s billionaire status?”
In any case, the artistic choice has certainly raised some eyebrows, and the answer might explain why Jenner is reluctant to leave prying eyes in her personal space.
