Will and Jada Pinkett Smith: Our home represents our love

One would guess that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith don't get to spend a lot of time at home, seeing that they've got their own jobs and their kids have gigs too, but whenever the power couple does find time to chill out they've got an impressive 25,000 square feet to do it in.

The Smith family opened the doors to their expansive Calabasas, California house in the September issue of Architectural Digest. Designed by architect Stephen Samuelson, the home has a circuitous floor plan. "The idea was to create an infinite cycle that represented what Jada and I hoped for our love," says Will Smith.

The design incorporates Parisian, Moroccan, Spanish and Southwest American influences, as well as a healthy sense of spirituality, says Jada Pinkett Smith.

“For Will and me this home was always a spiritual endeavor…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,” she says. “Whatever it becomes, the craftsmanship will always represent our union and the love of our family.”

That's why it was important to the couple to have handcrafted details.

"Everything needed to be done by hand," he explains. "We wanted to feel the love and labor that went into every piece of this place."

And while it certainly looks like a fine-tuned, finished project, Jada says they're still adding little things here and there.

"It's definitely a work in progress," she says. "Will and I were very young when we started the house, so it keeps on changing as we get older and understand how we really live in it. But whatever it becomes, the craftsmanship will always represent our union and the love of our family."

    Will Smif may be rich but his movies STINK and he is, at best, a mediocre actor. That home looks like a 1970's pimp wagon and I would rather watch the Turd races than any of his movies.

    Why does everyone have to be so negative? They have come a long way in both of their careers. They are both outstanding actors & their kids will be oneday too. What have all of you done? They will be laughing the whole wayto the bank. I'm proud to give you my money Will & Jada & cannot wait to give your children my money too. You haters are all losers.

    You know maybe if the majority would make way for your own lives and not envy other people's blessings, more blessings would come your way. It was Will and Jada's decision to become movie stars and they followed their dreams and made them reality. They had money and fame long before they had children and did not impose stardom on them, do you not see that the oldest chose to go to college and pursue football so how are they pimping out their kids? They are movie stars and can afford a life of luxury they are also humanitarians. Stop being envious which is a sin and be glad for others, or better yet pave your own way in life..if you are upset with your own life it's probably because you haven't done anything with it, haters.

      could not have said it any better. I was always taught to never be jealous of what others have because you never know what they went through to get it.

    Beautiful home, beautiful family, but isn't it just a little crass for ANYONE to be flaunting their wealth right now?

    Thats a really cool house. The design is fantastic & must have cost them a fortune. Especially all of the doorways in the home that have cutouts on the sides so they can all walk through the doorways without their ears hitting the doorframes. Really neat.

      Why is every one hating on The Smith's? They seem happy, they're all successful and they have a beautiful home. And what is all these comments that Will doesn't cheat bc they have an open relationship? Why do you care so much?
