Adam Levine seems to have it all- Talent, good looks, and what? A strong design sensibility. One might guess I suppose from his understated public persona, but as stated in a recent article in Architectural Digest, this “Maroon 5 front man’s California pad combines midcentury sophistication with a shot of bachelor attitude” I have to agree. ”His immaculately refurbished 1940s ranch-style dwelling, suspended high above the city, in the Hollywood Hills, and outfitted with classics by Jean Prouvé, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Arne Jacobsen, and other 20th-century-design icons, has a quiet, meticulous air.” Mr. Levine worked with designer Mark Haddawy, a midcentury collector. From the looks of it, they created a home for entertaining, as well as an environment offering a bit of respite from the limelight. The depth of color of deep purple and burgundy is moody, and plays against the monochromatic background of the interior, whether crisp and white in the public spaces, or dark and reclusive in the private realm of the house. The bathroom is elegant yet simple, a relaxing surround on all surfaces, bathing the space a warm white marble. Quite lovely indeed.
