EXCLUSIVE: Take a Tour of Kandi Burruss’ Beautiful and Eclectic Home (Red Crocodile Piano Included!)
Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker’s house is a perfect blend of vintage and new.
The couple – who recently welcomed son Ace – opened 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.
