Adam Levine, the frontman of Maroon 5 and mentor on The Voice has more than a typical bachelor home. It points to his stardom, his individuality, and good taste. We know he has good taste from his winning singers on The Voice and his hit songs (I especially like Moves Like Jagger), but little did we know how great his taste is in architecture.
Architectural Digest features Adam Levine‘s home under Homes & Spaces. Adam Levine is a hard-working, self-made man and his home also reflects this.
Swooning over the pool and the views. This is a refurbished 1940s ranch-style home located high above the city in the Hollywood Hills and provides privacy. As I gaze out from the terrace I am at once relaxed. I arrows above point out comfortable Persian pillows that can’t be ignored on this otherwise white terrace and exterior. Read on, but I am staying here awhile to enjoy the views!
Adam Levine’s living room. Arrows point to the same pillows, so this is open to the terrace seen above. Per AD: The sofa is mohair velvet. The white daybed is by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The carpet is Persian and is from Samuel’s Rug Gallery, as are the pillows on the terrace.
I can’t help but to think of Christina Aguilera when I see the purple sofa. Adam Levine’s and Christina Aguilera’s decorating tastes are very different, but she does have a purple bedroom and some other touches of purple throughout her home that is for sale, as seen in my post Christina Aguilera’s Beverly Hills house. But, they don’t seem to get along on The Voice, or do they?
Christina looked stunning on The Voice this April 2nd of 2012.
There are reports out there stating that Adam and Christina get along fine. Just recently, Adam Levine broke up with his long time model, Victoria Secret, girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna.
Stainless-steel kitchen with a jet black table from Metro Retro Furniture. I just don’t know how comfortable the chairs would be to sit on. They don’t look comfortable. They are by a Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen who is known for simple, effective chair designs.
Adam Levine’s bed with vintage armchair from Denmark 50. The flooring is actually a cowhide carpet by Pure Rugs. Looks like a white suitcase between the two black chairs. Note the thick velvet curtains. Adam says they help him sleep after working long hours.
Another part of the master bedroom features a baby grand piano and custom-made ottoman. The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore Black.
The influence of Adam’s home design is by his friend Mark Haddawy, a 20th-century design collector and co-owner of Resurrection, a vintage clothing boutique with stores in Los Angeles and Manhattan. Together they tore down the inside walls, reduced the bedrooms from four to one (takes courage), added concrete floors (that is getting popular to do), rosewood paneling, and marble in the bathrooms. So then, the influence of Adam’s friend explains the Mid-century furnishings and other vintage items.
I will be watching The Voice for the rest of the season to see not only which singer will win, which mentor/coach will win, but also to watch Adam Levine and the other three coaches banter with each other.
