Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have always been the couple and family to think outside the box, whether that is with the vision and intention behind how their home looks or how they choose to raise their kids.

Will and Jada have always made headlines for their unique marriage and perspective on family dynamics. Even with designing their home, the couple was very attentive in choosing designs that would represent their shared love as a family.

Will has grown exponentially as an actor, and his house represents that. The actor started the process of envisioning his dream home in 1998 when he was filming the thriller "Enemy of the State" with Gene Hackman.

He had heard Hackman speak about his house and finally decided to see it. Immediately, Will was inspired by the scenery and loved the use of mud bricks and the earthy feel of the home.

Soon after, Will purchased the neighboring 150-acre plot and started his journey of creating his picture-perfect, majestic adobe home with beautiful lake views. The construction began in 2003, and many hands were involved in making the Smith home.

The actors had woodworkers, plasterers, metalsmiths, stonemasons, and upholsterers use their expertise to create the most personal details of the house.

According to the designer of the Smiths' home, Stephen Samuelson, the inspiration behind the house was a mixture of different ancient histories and cultures, including Persian, Moroccan, Spanish, and Southwest American cultures.

The vision came together because the family had already started building a collection of antique carved panels and doors. "I have a thing for doors. I always think of them as a threshold to something new," expressed Jada.

The 25,000-square-foot home is equipped with nine bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. There is a meditation lounge, which is reportedly Jada's favorite place to enjoy time alone, a pool room, a home theatre, and a recording studio, where their daughter Willow allegedly recorded her hit song "Whip My Hair." Will also has his own man cave filled with music and sports equipment.

The home is interestingly carved and detailed, as seen in the kitchen. Jada gave fans a sneak peek in one of her Instagram stories. It has a huge and meticulously carved island, a ton of counter space, and a pizza oven. Wooden cabinets encompass the walls and dining space. The room also carries through the yellow and earthy tones that run through the house with wooden floors.

The house also features an eye-grabbing staircase with detailed metallic work. There are stained glass windows, wrought-iron railings, fireplaces, and wooden-beamed ceilings.

Despite how big the property is, it is described to still have a very intimate feel because of the personal details that went into it. The family wanted to walk into the home and feel the labor and love that went into every piece inside.

Will and Jada also have house rules for their children. As much as the house is a shared space for their family, the kids need to remember a few things. "Actually, we tell our kids ‘you don’t have a room, that’s our room and we are letting you borrow it," Will explained.

The kids can use their rooms however they please, but they need to understand that the house belongs to their parents, so Will emphasized that giving them the responsibility to keep them clean is perfectly reasonable.

The full renovation was finished in 2010, and the family moved in in 2011, but Jada said the home was ever-changing the more she and Will figured out how they wanted to live in it. But at its core, it will always be representative of their shared love as a family.

Unfortunately, the detailed Smith home caught fire in 2021, but it was mostly in the basement, leaving everyone in the house safe. The "Bad Boys" star had a chance to work on the house during the coronavirus pandemic.

Inside Will and Jada’s Marriage and Parenting Style

Will and Jada have faced many scandals around their relationship, like when Will was blasted for slapping a fellow actor at the Oscars. Despite the amount of attention the event received, the couple did not seem to let it affect their marriage.

A close source said at the time that the two were in it for the long run. "They have been through a lot together, and this is just another battle for them," the source added.

Will was never afraid to defend his marriage from public assumptions. Once, the award-winning actor took to Facebook to clear rumors about him and Jada getting divorced. "I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!" he emphasized.

One of the secrets behind their strong and long-lasting relationship is freedom. The couple is big on allowing each other the freedom to be individuals. They try hard not to dictate how they go through life. To be allowed to explore is their ultimate form of love and happiness.

The same mentality goes for raising their children. Will has said that they are not big on punishments. Rather, they allow their children to have the most control over their lives and learn from their mistakes.

Will continued to explain that punishment has usually been connected to negative experiences for them, so it's best to let their children be responsible for their lives. Jada and Will are always willing to hear their kids' ideas as long as they can explain how they work for their lives.

Just recently, the couple left the world stunned with a revelation no one saw coming. Jada has a memoir coming out, and some details from the highly anticipated book have been released, including the fact that Will and his wife had been separated since 2016. Jada has also moved out of the house they shared.

The former couple have been living their lives apart for seven years but have not legally gotten a divorce. During her conversation with Hoda Kotb, Jada said she has not found a reason to legally separate herself from Smith because they made a promise to never get to that stage.

Since Will and Jada have been apart for so many years but publicly made it seem like they were still together, the news of their break up was shocking and unraveled the Oscars incident again.

Besides Jada appreciating how Will stood up for her, she confessed that she was more shocked at him calling her his wife because they had not referred to one another as husband and wife for a long time.

Will has kept quiet about most of the news that broke stemming from Jada's book. But the actor did make a subtle comment about everything that's been going on. He shared a video of him out in the water with background music, with the sound of a phone ringing and beeps from notifications. The comedian captioned the post with the words that popped up on the screen: "Fun fact about me, I can take a nap anywhere."

Despite the constant media attention, the Smith family has a very strong bond, and fans get a glimpse of it on their Instagram. Jada celebrated her birthday and shared a video of her family singing for her with an array of food for people to feast and celebrate.
