By way of the great Hooked on Houses, we learned of the great new cover story in Architectural Digest: a look inside the Malibu mansion of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. AD writes:
The 25,000-square-foot house has a surprising intimacy—a soul animated by the craftsmanship on display and the spirit of the celebrity power couple that live here with their children, Willow, Jaden, and Trey, Will’s son from his first marriage. “For Will and me this home was always a spiritual endeavor,” Jada says. “We’re very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, something that ties back to the land.”
The adobe-style home was designed by Stephen Samuelson with architect Harry Perez-Daple, and although it’s a gorgeous home inside and out, the view might just be the most spectacular part. As you’d hope, the home is designed to be very open, bringing the outside in and taking advantage of everything Mother Nature has to offer.
