Inside Ricky Martin’s Serene Los Angeles Home | Open Door | Architectural Digest

– Hey what’s going on everyone. This is Ricky Martin and
my husband Jwan Yosef. – Hello.
– And after what? Three, four years of being on the road we decided to land. And it’s here in Los Angeles and we would love to share with you. Come join us. – Come, come, come. [upbeat music] – So it’s not fair
because we are right here in the middle of massive
production for this photo shoot. So your gonna see our house
a bit messy. [both laugh] Bear with us, come join us. – Come. [upbeat music] – We met because of arts. I collect, he’s a conceptual painter and he has an impeccable taste. – We thought this is more like the seating for the art rather than us. We don’t really hang out hear much but our kids do. – From here to the pool they jump in. [both laugh] – This is more formal dining area. These are our crew. – They’re all our children. They grow pretty fast. Son, son, son, nephew. So when I bought my first home this was my first table and I’m talking about like 25 years ago and I take her with me everywhere. I love my table. [upbeat music] This is important right. There is this amazing,
Syrian-Swedish artist. He’s very, very beautiful and
handsome conceptual artist but also very talented. This is a Jwan Yosef. Bang! So embarrassed, look at him
he’s blushing like everything. And then obviously we
have a very messy kitchen because of the big
production that we have today but this is where everything happens. I’m sure I’m not the
only one that will say that everything happens in the kitchen. It doesn’t matter how beautiful
your formal living room is or your family room. We all end up here at the end of the day. Cooking, talking, gossiping
and all that good stuff. [upbeat music] – Family room super relaxed. This is where we hang all the time. – This is where we have
breakfast watching porn. This is usually my spot. [laughs] [upbeat music] – I think we should
totally just talk about your amazing Grammys right here. – Oh stop! [both laugh] I would have them in my office
or in my recording studio but Jwan said no let’s have them here. [upbeat music] When we came to LA house hunting we only had three days and
we saw like 26 homes… – Yeah
– In like three days. Our realtor was going crazy. He told us, this is the first
house that I’m taking you to, remember this is gonna be your house. And we were like yeah, yeah, yeah. And when we walked in here we fell in love with
this home immediately. – We were also totally sold
by that amazing bent tree over there and just thought
the kids are gonna love this. They can just climb and do everything. And that’s really what happened. [upbeat music] – And we have a screening room. In other words, I have a
movie theater in my house. It’s sound proof, it’s light proof and it has great sound. Whoosh, let’s go. – So this is really like
the super massive hallway that leads you to the master. Art, art. – I love this little interior patio here. [upbeat music] – A lovely Jack West. A very dear friend of mine. This is Osian Ikerman, Swedish
artist, super wonderful. [upbeat music] – Welcome to the master bedroom. This is where we talk about our dreams and we make them happen. – Such an intimate thing to kind of choose works for your bedroom. It’s like you kind of go
from super personal things. Just things that you just love. This is a super great
photographer and artist named Karis Carbach. – This was knitted by a fan. It’s like a blanket and
it’s very comfortable. [clears throat] And wherever you are, thank you very much. Kids love it. [upbeat music] Trying to make it clean. Just go in. This is a dream closet. I am very happy in this closet. I usually have an inflatable mattress and I sleep in here. Forget about the tree. Once we saw the master bedroom I said this is our house. I didn’t even know what to say. – It’s a very spacious bathroom. It’s virtually the size of a London flat. [upbeat music] – Now that is our favorite
spot in the entire house. Very Zen, very relaxed. A fire at night regardless
what time of the year. Obviously there’s one thing
we’re very happy about is the weather in this beautiful city. And that’s our spot. Turn on the fire, let’s go. – We constructed this after
we moved in and we thought let’s just build a studio. – They sold it to us as our yoga room. – As our yoga room, we’re like we’re not going to do yoga in here. – Every house in LA has a yoga room. – We love this house
and we love being here with the kids and our friends and everyone but as soon as we activated it with work it was just a
completely different monster. – In the future I’m going
to have my recording studio in there. Right now it looks like a cave. There’s bats, whatever you
can imagine is in there. But we’re very happy here. We don’t want to leave this house. After being on the road for what? Three, four, five years,
we found this place and we feel very serene here. [upbeat music] Thank you so much for everything. I hope you enjoyed our temple and now get out.
