Ricky Martin has spent most of his life on the road, but he recently decided to settle down in Los Angeles with his husband and their two sons. The place they chose is a 11,000 square foot home that expanded on a residence originally designed by acclaimed midcentury architect Gregory Ain.
The modern, streamlined home is serene in its simplicity. Surrounded by nature, the home embraces the outdoors with plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows allowing in natural light and the stunning greenery found in every corner. While the interior is very modern, as well, there are natural touches such as stone and wood found throughout the home. The clean lines create a clean, minimalist atmosphere while well-chosen textiles and a relaxing energy make it feel comfortable.

A hypnotic piece of art creates an engaging vignette with a modern mirrored table. Round decor on the table contrasts the harsh lines.
A large, polished wood front door immediately makes an impression, along with the eye-catching chandelier.
Modern lines keep things sleek and streamlined, while a variety of beautiful textures – stone, metal, wood, fur – bring plenty of visual interest and style.
Floor-to-ceiling windows make you feel one with nature in the living room, which is filled with stunning natural light and a view of the surrounding trees.
The outdoor dining room almost feels like it’s indoors until you look up and see the stunning canopy of trees.
A red shag rug offers a vibrant punch of color in the dining room which otherwise embraces a subdued, natural palette.
The kids’ room has its own stunning windows that lead to a private patio.
A modern double-sided fireplace services two relaxing living areas.
The master bedroom is a relaxing retreat with smooth grey walls, crisp white textiles, and wood accents. The hanging bronze light fixtures hanging over the end tables are simple yet pack a design punch.
The pool area looks like a five-star resort with more streamlined design meeting with nature.
The landscaping isn’t too “overdone,” leaving things looking wild and natural around the structure.
What a beautiful place!
