“We lived in it and we got the most out of what I had bought”- says the iconic drummer and singer Travis Barker from blink 182 for his luxurious built-in sprawling villa-style house, Calabasas Abode where he currently lives.
Tranquil Calabasas Abode-
A single-story mansion with an area of 10000sq feet offering mesmeric geometrics and elegant intricate interiors with rich, timeless minimalistic design and finest materials. A 7 beds and 7.5 baths villa to celebrate the tranquillity in the rhythm of music and beats of the drum. From a large living room to an extensive swimming pool and backyard, Travis also has room to rehearse a few drumming sessions. Not only that, but the home is so huge to the point where his kids have plenty of adventures throughout each room and hallway. A series of archways and visual permeability through patios give an inside-out theme to the house.
Welcoming with an arty look is the living room. It has been adorned with many paintings of artists, along with many cool punk graphics. A collection of sleek modern furniture with a balanced combination of photoshoots, a fireplace, and paintings of 5 favourite albums that inspire him. The mansion has a lot more to reveal, with large windows converted to doors that give an extroverted view of the swimming pool in the backyard. The interest of kids has been kept in place with large hallways offering enough space for skateboarding and bike riding. The outside walls with rubble stone masonry and sleek furniture with white and an accent of blue, adding a slight touch of wooden furniture.
This villa with a cosmic blend of style and space has been designed by Waldo, his amazing ideas, calming spirit, and impeccable taste are all that Travis wanted in his dream house.
“A family that eats together stays together.” A large dining table with abstract accents of grey complimenting the wooden material serves a complete dose of togetherness to the family. The black and white colour scheme of the kitchen complements the beauty of the sleek furniture. The fragrances of cinnamon and nutmeg through the Matcha station with large windows built to elevate the amazing view of the exteriors. Each cabinet exudes a sense of calm, ease, and flexibility. Defined by high gloss finishes that retreat to reveal dark wooden posts and a huge round table adding drama to seamlessly give a vintage look to the area.
The TV Room is a perfect spot to sit back and relax with an opulent yet minimalistic design exclusively for Travis, Kourtney, and the kids. A cool and calming gathering space to play games and watch performances with a touch of brown and ochre-tinted furniture. Travis got rid of vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting to give flat ceilings, as high as possible to make clean lines visible and an interior where rhythm and music flow. Besides a TV Room, this mansion holds an entertainment room with a cemented ping pong table, a lot of art, a lamp designed with a buster and punch, and cool books by Pettibon. Travis has an incredible Bmx bikes collection out of which the special two have their space in the entertainment room.
The villa also has a movie theatre and a home studio where the lyrics of “ bloody valentine” were written remotely during quarantine.
The bedroom offers a cosy spot for morning coffees, lazy afternoons, and relaxed nights. A space with a corner fireplace, sleek vertical windows, cabins, and a bunch of things close to Travis’ heart, like portraits, paintings, and other presents. The walls reflect the hard rocking, cool, and punk persona of Travis.
The memories of summer life in the backyard and the pool. A serene environment with occasional parties to chill, eat and have a great time with family and friends. An outdoor, sun-loving space is just as beautiful as the indoors.
