Legendary designer Lori Margolis felt inspired by Caitlyn Jenner's gender transition to transform two of the key rooms inside her palacious Pacific Ocean residence from a masculine hero's home into a woman's luxurious retreat.
"Caitlyn always lived in beautiful houses, but designing them was Kris Jenner's domain -- Caitlyn wasn't really involved," Margolis told Architectual Digest. "This time, she really wanted to put her personal stamp on the house."
Here are some glimpses at how it all came together as published by Architectual Digest.
This is the reimagined living room, which appeared so differently when Jenner hosted ABC's Diane Sawyer and posed for the cover of Vanity Fair, as photographed by Annie Leibovitz. This is where she finally came face to face with her ex-wife, in the finale of I Am Cait.
Margolis told Architectual Digest she chose a selection of furnishings that blended "a distinctly California beachy vibe with a touch of Hollywood glamour."
The New York-based designer's favorite piece is a 12-foot-long Homenature sofa, custom-made to accommodate Jenner's 6'2" frame -- and to accommodate the many Jenners and Kardashians. In the foreground is a pair of customized lounge chairs covered in Tibetan lamb's wool from Loft Thirteen. According to the magazine, the soft, pure white curtains are from Diamond Foam & Fabric and the Moroccan carpet is from Silk Road Oriental Rugs. The chandelier is by Lindsey Adelman.
This is one detail of Jenner's bedroom, where season one of her docu-series I Am Cait both began and ended, with self-recorded video diary entries.
According to the magazine, bedroom's tufted bed and quartz lamps are from Homenature, and the gold-accented nightstands are from Shine by S.H.O.
"Caitlyn has been making so many physical and emotional changes in the past year," said Margolis. "She wanted her home to reflect not just her sense of style but her journey. She wanted something soft and feminine but also something that has strength."

Jenner told Architectual Digest she found a natural parallel between the transformation of her life and the reimagining of her home: "I think what this transition has done for me is that for the first time in my life I am able to express myself."
