Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz gave fans an official tour of their stunning art-filled “Razor” mansion, and it is just as magnificent as you’d expect.
Opening their doors to Architectural Digest, the couple dressed in all white as they gave viewers a look at their California abode that is both an architectural wonder and a place of calmness.
“The house is very open so we occupy all the spaces in the home,” Alicia explains. “There is something about the circle that feels so good, especially with the view and the water, which feels so calming and peaceful. This is the perfect way to welcome people in, it’s comfortable.”
Highlights of the cliffside mansion, designed by Wallace E. Cunningham, include floor-to-ceiling glass, grand walkways, lovely courtyards, floating staircases, an infinity pool, and more than 1,000 pieces of artwork. The massive abode also overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
“I was low-key manifesting it,” Swizz states about the 11,000-square-foot residence that was his phone’s screen saver for eight years. “When your screen saver comes to life, it’s unbelievably crazy.”
According to interior designer Kelly Behun, the home was designed to feel family-friendly with warm tones and elements like Moroccan wool rugs, wood, and soft fabrics like shearling and cotton velvet. “The interiors don’t in any way shout; they’re simple and timeless,” Behun says about the brown and neutral hues of the home.
When the pair is not busy traveling the world, the couple enjoys board games and lots of music with their sons, Egypt and Genesis. Simply put, their house is definitely a home.
