Malumais opening his doors to his lavish home…
The 26-year-old Colombian singer, who’ll make his big screen debut opposite Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming romantic comedy Marry Me, has given Architectural Digest (AD) a video tour of his modern yet cozy house in the countryside near his hometown of Medellín.
Maluma calls his home his “sanctuary.”S
“It feels amazing to be here and enjoy my house,” Maluma says of his art-filled home, which he has owned for three years and has decorated in a palette of browns and whites. “I needed this time in my life to enjoy and see all of the things that I have been building for a long time.”
He explains that he always dreamed of owning a place with an indoor-outdoor feel, and this one certainly delivers.
The main living space features high ceilings and glass walls (not to mention a sleek floating staircase situated above a tranquil water feature), with lush green foliage visible from all angles.
The centerpiece—surrounded by a white piano, a KAWS sculpture, and horse artwork—is a unique round seating area sunken into the light hardwood floor with a sculptural fire pit in the center.
“I love sitting down [here] with my family,” says Maluma. A simple pile of fluffy rugs and pillows provides another sitting area, where he says games of Unoand Jengaoften take place.
There’s a Scandinavian influence to the kitchen, which has all-white handleless cabinets. And although he has a chef quarantining with him, Maluma insists on making his morning coffee himself, sipping it on his deck each morning from one of his multiple mugs with various family members’ pictures on them.
If the main floor shows off his eye for design, the lower level of the home reflects Maluma’s fun side. It seems to have everything one could ever need to stay entertained during quarantine, including a full gym, a movie theater, a blackjack table, and a Ping-Pong table that he says sees a lot of use. From this game room, comprising a framed collection of soccer jerseys, one can access the backyard, where there’s a large pool with a sleek ivory-colored pool deck, a hot tub, and a meat smoker for barbecues.
Even though everyone is eager to see the pandemic come to an end, Maluma concludes the tour with a message for fans in both Spanish and English: “I hope you guys stay at home…it’s cool to stay at home.”
