hold up… wait! snoop dogg is collaborating with airbnb?

 

the famed hip-hop artist has self-designed kithaus, with the help of TV host and interior designer of HGTV’s emily henderson, for the world’s leading community driven hospitality company’s ‘airbnb park’ venue at SXSW 2014. the temporary dwelling by snoop dogg is indicative of his personal style, complete with reflective gold walls printed with marijauna leaves and scalloped graphic pattern, arne jacobsen ‘egg chair’ in red leather, and a bold sign hanging above the tufted blue velvet sofa that reads ‘BO$$’ – an expression of luxury on a more humble scale. the pop-up house consists of two programs – a main living room, and a separate more private space joined by a covered deck. the landscaping and exterior details include a façade in robin egg’s blue, and a gold mailbox with ‘SNOOP’ outlined in gems.

 

 snoop dogg’s pop-up is one of three designed by musicians, with others by capital cities and allen stone.
