Peek inside Jada and Will Smith’s 25,000 sq ft home

Uber stars Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith gave Architectural Digest an exclusive look inside their 25,000 square foot Adobe-styled home. The Smith’s luxury crib was designed by architect Stephen Samuelson, with interiors by Judith Lance. The custom furniture added an additional $250,000 to the cost of the unique private residence.

The living room includes a 1930s copper lantern from Downtown, columns wrapped in jute rope, a pair of ’60s Brazilian rosewood chairs (at left) from Noho Modern, custom-made lounge seating (at right) upholstered in a Rose Tarlow leather, wing chairs covered in kilims and leather, and a beige silk area rug by Hokanson.

Always at one with nature, Will calls the lake gazebo his favorite spot: “Answers come to me out there,” he says. Will and Jada wanted a highly personal space to share 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 bedroom terrace has pendant lights by Tom Dixon from Twentieth Art and Design, drum tables by Studio JRM, and cushions covered in Donghia, Holly Hunt, and Perennials fabrics. “Everything needed to be done by hand,” Will says. “We wanted to feel the love and labor that went into every piece of this place.

    Unlike most celebrity homes, theirs actually looks comfortable. Most stars have homes that don’t look very kid friendly, or like show homes. White furniture, lots of glass, open windows everywhere, etc. I can get jiggy with this here…

    OAN; Sandra can you please find out what kind of shoes those are Willow is wearing? I believe you posted a pic of Rihanna wearing a pair last week and since RiRi is Willow’s style icon I’m curious to know who makes those hideous shoes!

    I agree with DMisses. This home looks like they designed it with the children in mind. It doesn’t look sterile and cold like a museum.

    Jada looks absolutely GORGEOUS on the cover. And the Smiths look like they are actually still in love. Then just look at their beautiful children.. and last but not least look at the crib. Daammnn.. We, the public, need to put things in perspective when we talk smack about the Smiths–we sure do love to talk a little shyt about them, now don’t we. But evidently, they DO know how to do a few things right! Say what we will, but these nuccas are BALLING! In every way.. Jada, you sure have come a long way from Bmore, WOW O_O

    Morning Everybody…

    I can only imagine what’s been done (or what I would do) in that lake gazebo. :ashamed:

  32. 32

    Nice, but it’s too “open” for my liking. although i’m sure security is trump tight, i wouldn’t feel safe bc it looks too “outsidey”. beautiful nonetheless

    They have a beautiful home. 25,000 square feet. Does one really need that much space? I guess if your Will and Jada you do.

    The Smith’s tend to have warm inviting homes vs a showplace. The spread they have in the Georgia Mountains is a sight to see and I’ve never been impressed by cabins.
