Besides comparing herself to Albert Einstein, one of our favorite takeaways from Paris Hilton's 2014 Telegraph profile is that her dog kennel mirrors an Italian villa. With design touches that include "cornicing, black crystal chandelier, designer furniture," and even a mini balcony, the space almost sounded too ridiculous to be true, even for the Beverly Hills heiress's standards. But given that Hilton has no shame in her game (this is the same person who purchased a $13,000 teacup Pomeranian, after all), it was only a matter of time before she shared this mindblowing space on social media. That day has come.
Back in town from her international DJ travels, Hilton recently shared a video on Instagram of all her dogs excitedly jumping out of their real-life Italian villa to welcome their master home. We see the aforementioned black crystal chandelier, a luxurious stairway, and even that damn mini balcony. Watch the video below and join us in this new low of being envious of a doghouse.
