Wiz Khalifa (@wizkhalifa), who became famous for his Steelers’s anthem Black and Yellow in 2010, is a Pittsburgher, but one with a current address in Los Angeles, California. Since 2016, the music artist has established a West Coast home in a Mediterranean-style residence with extensive views, which he rents for $16,000 per month.“It was a good area for me to have privacy" he explains.
The six-bedroom house is, in many ways, dedicated to his son, Sebastian (whose mother is Wiz Khalifa’s ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose). “He plays downstairs and he has a playroom upstairs with more books and educational stuff. There’s one downstairs with toys and one upstairs with books. The majority of the space in my house is for him, so the more areas where he can have to do his thing the better,” Khalifa, an obviously devoted dad, explains. Although Khalifa put a studio in the home, since he’s “been working from home for some years,” his favourite room is his bedroom. To make the rental feel like home, Khalifa worked with interior designer Michelle Silva, who collaborated with Liz Tapper of Liz Tapper Interiors, and Tricia Morrison of Details by Others. “I think, overall, we were looking to achieve a design that we thought was indicative of who he was: a father, an entertainer, a free spirit, and a creative,” says Silva. “He is so young, so we wanted to keep the design playful and super hip. We wanted to bring out the fun and interesting materials because of the connection with fashion. It had to be something that reflected his personality and his lifestyle with vibrant choices but also provides a lot of the comfort.” #linkinbio
