EXCLUSIVE: Take a Tour of Kandi Burruss’ Beautiful and Eclectic Home (Red Crocodile Piano Included!)

02/25/2016 at 05:39 PM ET

Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker’s house is a perfect blend of vintage and new.

The couple – who recently welcomed son Aceopened their Atlanta home to PEOPLE to show off some of their favorite spaces.

Their personal touches are on display the minute you walk in the door. The front foyer holds the “highlight of the house,” a picture wall, which features black-and-white framed photos of the Real Housewives of Atlanta star with celebrity friends like TLC’s Chili and T.I. and Tiny.

For the living room, Burruss and Tucker opted for a neutral color palette with pops of pink and some interesting accents. “I love this room because we have some unique things that you won’t see anywhere else,” the songwriter says. The couple’s oversized coffee table – which was actually a dining room table that they painted fuchsia – is the perfect example.

“So that lets you know,  you can have some high end stuff with some cheap stuff,” Tucker says. “Don’t feel like you have to spend all your money.” And for some added “bling,” the living room fireplace was lacquered gold by a friend of Burruss.

But the ultimate wow factor may just be the piano that the couple had wrapped in a red crocodile print.  It’s “a great place to sit my Grammy!” says Burruss.

To complete the red-inspired room, the pair took two “old, beat up antique chairs” they found on Craigslist and had them recovered and refurbished to match the area’s signature color.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

That is the UGLIEST decorations I’ve ever seen in a house. It looks tacky and cheap af. Why is Todd talking when he knows he’s just staying there as a guest. He ain’t got one coin on that mortgage…no one.

Why not hire a professional interior designer, at least as a consultant. The Burruss’ home is actually indicative of a musician’s home. Without seeing any other rooms I can’t give a full assessment, though I will assume the rest of the home has furnishings painted and retouched by “friends”, which makes it look like a conglomerated mess. Your home is an investment. If you have the money what is the harm in making your home speak upscale, verses recycled pieces that hold no value. Money can only be spent once.
