Walk inside Kourtney Kardashian‘s Calabasas pad and it’s clear her kids have had a big influence.

From black and white striped walls to bright oversize Legos, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has transformed the family’s home into a chic, child-friendly space.

“We have a kids kitchen right next to our kitchen, another teepee in the family room, some mini pianos in our living room next to the big piano [plus] random cars, strollers and shopping carts floating around,” Kardashian says in the latest issue of Mini magazine.

“We also have an outdoor kids space with an arts and crafts table, an easel, a fruit stand and a train set for the kids to ride on.”

But it’s the bedrooms of Mason Dash, 4, and Penelope Scotland, 20 months, where Kardashian really took things to the next level.

“I think every child’s room should have some magic in it. Those magical elements just came to life once the process began,” the reality star says.

For her son, that means a safari-themed room full of big paper maché animal heads mounted on the walls, while a pretty-in-pink nursery adorned with cloud wallpaper on the ceiling is the perfect setting for her daughter.

“In both of their rooms, I started wanting everything all white,” Kardashian explains. “And they both evolved once I found the perfect pieces that I knew were for them.”

Now that the mom-of-two has finished up designing her home, she’s teamed up with her sisters, Kim and Khloé, to launch their first clothing collection for girls. Their latest project, however, isn’t exactly a surprise.

“My mom and I opened up a children’s boutique called Smooch, which we had for five years and I did all of the buying,” she says. “My grandmother also has a children’s boutique called Shannon & Co., which she has had for 30 years and my sisters and I grew up working in.”

She continues, “It is in our blood. Once I had my own children, I [found] a new appreciation, understanding and education about children’s clothes.”

With his family’s background, it’s no surprise Mason has already started displaying an interest in fashion.

“Every day is different, but he loves to dress himself and pick out his outfit every day,” Kardashian shares.

But what we really want to know is how the busy (and super chic!) mom manages to balance it all?

“Knowing my priorities. Nothing comes before my children,” she insists. “I find that putting everything else in order of importance also helps to get everything done! Having an amazing partner, Daddy [Scott Disick], doesn’t hurt either.”
