Take design cues from the homes of G-Dragon, Exo’s Kai, Mamamoo’s Hwasa, Jennie and Rose from Blackpink. Plus, we identify some of their iconic furniture and decorative items, and where to buy them.

If you’re on the hunt for home design inspiration, there’s no better place to turn to than Korean celebrities. Their luxurious pads are often stylish havens, decorated flawlessly whilst reflecting their personal approaches and tastes to design.

Many Korean stars have also taken to sharing a glimpse of their homes through variety shows and social media. Below, we round up some of the most modish and chic dwellings from some of the largest names in the Korean music industry.

1. Blackpink’s Rosé

The Blackpink star, who’s also the global ambassador for French luxury house Yves Saint Laurent, lives in her apartment with her dog Hank. For her abode, the talented singer takes on a contemporary and cosy approach with earthy tones, natural textures and plush seats—including a dog-sized beanbag for her adorable canine companion.

Her penchant for neutral shades is displayed through various plush armchairs and large bean bags. Rosé also clearly keeps her finger on the pulse of the latest decor trends, with the latest Internet obsession—a trendy sunset projection lamp from Halo Edition—serving as the mood lighting for her birthday livestream.

The musician, who’s the proud owner of a limited-edition Supreme Fender Stratocaster, keeps her valuable instruments close by in her home. She adds a decorative touch to her interior with an eccentric Seletti mirror that features lipstick decals by Toiletpaper. This popular mirror can also be found in another member’s house, too (see below).

2. Blackpink’s Jennie

Jennie’s stylish pad also features the playful mirror from Seletti; no surprise, given her disposition for fun and cheerful pieces.

Unlike Rose, Jennie seems to favour pastel shades as opposed to earthy tones. Her pad is decked out with pastel pink dividers, baby blue furnishings, and popular Gustaf Westman selections; her Bubble sofa by Sacha Lakic from Roche Bobois is another adorable pastel addition.

To mark her 25th birthday, the singer recently opened her own YouTube channel. Her introductory video gives fans a further glimpse inside her home, with a promise for more videos in the future.  

3. G-Dragon

It’s hardly surprising that the famous Big Bang star resides in a luxury penthouse reportedly worth millions. The apartment, which comes equipped with its own private elevator and terrace, exudes a charismatic aura with G-Dragon’s take on decor. 

The singer is also known to be an avid contemporary art collector. This is patently displayed throughout the star’s sprawling residence, with his dynamic collection—which includes the famous Ultrafragola mirror by Ettore Sottsass—injecting his home with much character and personality. 

4. Hwasa

Mamamoo’s Hwasa has recently moved into a modern new apartment. Displaying an elegant, Scandi-chic vibe, her current dwelling consists of sleek and stylish fittings with nature-inspired influences.  

The talented singer has showcased her home on Korean variety show I Live Alone; whilst her bedroom looks snug and cosy enough, her oversized corner sofa takes it up a notch, radiating a super inviting and comfortable vibe.

5. Exo’s Kai

Likewise, the popular Exo member recently showcased his luxurious bachelor pad on I Live Alone as well. The star showcased his design flair, revealing that he was personally involved in designing a large part of his home space.

He imagined the interior as a “blank canvas”, with key features such as a large modular sofa that takes centre stage in the living room and statement pendant lights in the kitchen becoming statement pieces that turn the empty canvas into an artwork.

Available locally in Singapore from Space Furniture, the Edra On the Rocks by Francesco Binfaré sofa is a highly customisable design that features removable backrests and modular seats that can be rearranged when needed.

Besides his partiality for monochrome colours, Kai also designed his home with a maze theme; he built concealed doors that blend seamlessly into the wall, connecting different rooms to each other like hidden passages.
