Inside Naomi Campbell's Luxury Villa In Kenya | Open Door | Architectural Digest

Today Architectural Digest brings you to the coast of the Indian Ocean in Kenya to visit supermodel Naomi Campbell at her luxurious, airy villa. Life as a fashion trailblazer and industry icon in constant demand for years necessitates a place to get away and unwind, and the tranquil seaside town of Malindi proved to be the perfect spot. “It’s a very calming place,” says Campbell. “You don’t really want to be on the phone. You’re not trying to find a television. You just want to read and be with yourself.”

I cannot believe we study European architecture so much in high school when Africa and Asia are 10 times more stunning and more rich in culture
This is an architectural masterpiece modelled along the authentic African style of thatched roofs. Lovely place, yes Africa is where to be.

I love that she shared that aircon causes wrinkles and that she doesn't drink alcohol. I really wish Naomi would do a whole movie about her tips on how to stay so beautiful and youthful.

that house screams opulence but without it going overboard, her daughter is lucky can she adopt me please. But seriously, she's worked so hard she deserves this villa.
Looks like she bought a small hotel/resort and turned it into her home. It’s beautiful and seems tranquil.

My Architecture eyes are glowing at this localized masterpiece with a pure connection to modernized Vernacularism. I love that Naomi expressed her appreciation for the local artisans and credited their work as well. I would love to see this house in Person.

I’ve always loved Naomi’s raspiness and her faint lisp when she speaks it’s classy in a peculiar way. I guess it shows that eloquentce is not about speaking perfectly it’s about speaking confidently

Her villa is like a 7 star resort. She's so nice she cares so much for her family,friends,and guests .And salute her for supporting and using native furniture and decor
N. D
N. D:
She is passionate about her home and Kenya. She should be on Kenyan tourism board. She has got a great personality
The more I see places the like, the more I see why white people stole so much of other people's culture...then create the narrative that Africa was 'nothing' before colonisation.

Lydia Sun:
it's kind of depressing how I know I'll never be able to live this life, take this as an example:

Me watching this video instead of studying.

This a life that I want... Beach, outdoor, nature, organic feels... She did smart move, this kind of properly is 3X the cost in USA.
When your house is so big there’s parts in it that you “used to go to” 💀

Man, I miss being in Kenya. Thank you Naomi for highlighting my beautiful Kenya.
We need more of this African, non western culture on this Channel. This property is mindblowing
Thanks Naomi . You've sold us to the world in 10 minutes more than our Travel Agents do in a year . The media is even worse so you've helped us recover from all the damage they've done to us .

Throughout the whole video I kept thinking, "Wow, she must have a lot of friends."
That buffet breakfast area would be looking real empty with just me and my two friends going to town 😂

She created an al inclusive resort as her home where “everyone” has their own area. My question is how can I be this “everyone”?

This is what I call, a rich healthy life. No wonder she looks stunning, That natural air, breeze,
Naomi is acting gracefully. Beautiful, and that's life goals. I would own a home in Liberia, Ghana , and Ivory Coast if I was rich 😩
Sunni Bates
Sunni Bates:
Man... she is RICH RICH. 😭😭
Seeing this, I really really want to work as the pool boy at her house. I would someday make a tiny little mistake like putting a little too much chlorine into the pool, which Queen Naomi of course will notice, she'll then get very mad and start yelling at me viciously and fire me in the end, I'd be LIVING 😩😩😫
A Sayy
A Sayy:
This house has so much character and personality. It seems like a hotel but would feel like home

OMG- I have Armando Tanzini Art for m 10 years ago. It's my favorite. Gorgeous house honey.
Beautiful home I love everything about it! So thoughtful of Naomi to only utilize local designers to decorate it. " this is the Cold pool, this is the warm pool... This is me 😵

She doesn’t look a day older than 25 like wow.
Vincent Seebeck
Vincent Seebeck:
The rooms look like generic motels, you can’t tell me someone frequently lives in them
I love how she's kept it traditional and hasn't tried to replicate a London townhouse in Kenya. This home is in Kenya for a reason.

5:53 “I remember the first time I was coming to Kenya and I said to Lauren Hutton, ‘I’m going to Kenya.’ And she said to me, ‘Look at your smile; when you get back, you’re going to have a REAL smile.’ And I so understood what she meant...she was 100% right.”

She legit still looks so young! Crazy... and I appreciate no surgery on her face (or at least nothing you can see) no fillers, no fake teeth.

I’m 2 minutes in and did she just say 1 of 4 pools?! Wow. She deserves those blessings, I love this video it shows a really relaxed, intelligent, grounded side of her.

Naomi is savage, she bought a resort and now it's her home 😂
you won't catch anybody in texas turning off their air conditioner 👀 we'll take the wrinkles ☝️🖐️ 105°F outside equals you are likely dying or dead inside your house if there's no air conditioning 🧐🤔

She’s very well spoken!
Marsha Ann

So proud to hear she stays in my country 🇰🇪 People have such a weird notion of how Africa is... Africa is beautiful.. Kenya is beautiful
Absolutely gorgeous! Omg! Its beautiful, Naomi!
E. B.
E. B.:
Don't get me wrong, I like Kenya but anywhere is great when you've got celebrity status and money, especially in Africa. As a Scandinavian who's lived and worked extensively both in West and East Africa, the contrast between the haves (usually corrupt to the core) and have-nots (ordinary, decent people) is too stark. I can't stomach it...
