STEP INSIDE ADAM LEVINE AND BEHATI PRINSLOO’S SOULFUL LOS ANGELES HOME

Life at the home of Adam and Behati Prinsloo Levine doesn’t seem very, well, rock-and-roll-y. Or supermodel-y, for that matter. The rooms aren’t cavernous, there’s no crazy waterfall or lagoon, and instead of zebra stripes và patent leather, all the furniture is covered in lovely linens & bouclés. Nothing feels even vaguely loubịt. To be fair, Adam does own a king’s ransom in groovy, blue-chip sneakers, but the closet where he keeps them has a Richồng Owens daybed smaông xã in the middle of it. That’s something you don’t see on your average episode of Cribs.

“We didn’t want a palatial McMansion. That’s just not who we are,” insists the Maroon 5 frontman, who is currently touring in support of the band’s latest album, Jordi. “We were attracted lớn this place because it felt homey. You could tell that kids had lived here before,” adds Behati, describing the allure of the couple’s Pacific Palisades property as a refuge for themselves & their two daughters, Dusty và Gio.

The couple sold their previous trang chủ, completely furnished, when the paint had barely dried after an extensive sầu renovation by the mother-and-son kiến thiết duo Kathleen và Tommy Clements. “Beverly Hills just started to feel hectic. It’s strangely central, so we felt surrounded by the đô thị. We wanted lớn live sầu somewhere quieter, where you don’t hear the traffic và feel the stress,” explains Adam, who grew up in Los Angeles & went khổng lồ high school just minutes from their current abode. “The only things we brought were the art & the bonkhông nên trees, which are my other little kids,” Behati says.


The trang chủ they acquired has an architectural pedigree—ranch-style maestro Cliff May designed the house in the late 1930s—although the original May design had been all but erased in decades of renovations & additions by the time Adam và Behati arrived. Previous owners of the property, which is nestled far off the street and opens out khổng lồ spectacular views stretching lớn the ocean, included Gregory Peông xã, producer Brian Grazer, and Ben Afflechồng & Jennifer Garner.

Adam and Behati once again tapped Clements Design—the AD100 firm’s first monograph, Eight Homes (Rizzoli), launches this month—lớn conjure their vision of a high-design, low-pretension family oasis. “We basically stripped it all down. We simplified the materials và color palette & exposed the bones of the house lớn create a beautiful, neutral backdrop for their collections of art and design,” Tommy Clements notes. “Adam is an obsessive kiến thiết junkie. He và Behati like to lớn live sầu with beautiful things, but in a super-casual way, where the kids have the run of the house, and friends and family are always welcome,” Kathleen adds.

The voluminous living room, commanded by a striking Rashid Johnson canvas, best exemplifies the home’s pervasive vibe of hushed chic và lounge-y luxury with its deliberately low-slung custom seating, classic Jean Prouvé Visiteur chairs, và minimalist basalt slab cocktail tables that hover inches off the floor. “The low daybed isn’t for every client,” Kathleen muses. “I’d need a crane to lift me off, but I think Adam và Behati are fit enough khổng lồ handle it.”

Behati underscores the characterization of her husbvà as a real estate and kiến thiết freak. “Adam usually takes the driver’s seat in making kiến thiết decisions. He stays up all night looking at furniture and houses. He should be an interior designer himself,” the Namibian Mã Sản Phẩm says. Evidence of the singer’s cultivated tastes can be discerned in every room, from the Jacques Adnet chairs in the den lớn the Charlotte Perrivà desk in the home office và the massive Raymond Pettibon painting that looms above the couple’s bed. “It’s not exactly earthquake-friendly, but we’re willing to die for that piece of art,” Adam jokes.

In addition to lớn the Pettibon và Johnson, the couple’s intriguing art collection includes a set of boldface names—Henry Taylor, Richard Prince, Mary Corse, Mary Weatherford, Albert Oehlen, và others—along with dramatic works by friends Sage Vaughn và Andrew Zuckerman. Commissioned by Behati as a gift for her husbvà, Vaughn’s trippy painting of a shark floating above a field of flowers provided the cover art for the Jordi album. “When things are chaotic culturally, as they have sầu been for the last half decade, it tends lớn foster great art. Behati and I have an emotional attachment lớn everything we collect,” Adam says.

Landscape architect Mark Rios ensured that the house’s alfresteo spaces were just as conducive lớn easy repose as the interiors. “We created a series of discrete destinations—outdoor rooms that are truly meant for living—khổng lồ add variety to the experience of the garden,” Rgame ios notes. Those destinations include a raised platkhung for enjoying the sublime views, a sunken conversation pit off the den for nighttime frolics, and a pool area designed for hanging out as much as swimming.

A bevy of mature olive trees ties the backyard lớn the front of the house, where Rgame ios transformed a banal circular motor court inlớn an Arcadian idyll with lush plantings and irregular stone pathways.

“The COVID lockdown made us especially grateful to lớn have this place. In a world where nothing ever seems khổng lồ be enough, our home feels lượt thích a genuine unicorn, our perfect sanctuary,” Adam concludes. Behati puts a finer point on the sentiment: “It’s really all that we need or want.”
