The Spanish colonial Los Angeles home of David Nesta “Ziggy” Marley, son of Reggae icons Bob and Rita Marley takes centre stage for Architectural Digest (AD). The 10,000-square foot Toluca Lake property became home to Marley, his spouse Orly, and their four children once the family outgrew their previous home — a beautiful mediterranean in Beverly Hills. The current home was designed by family friend, Los Angeles-based realtor, designer, and TV personality Reza Farahan.

Farahan ultimately led the couple to the six-bedroom and seven-bathroom home, and he and his team oversaw seven months of renovations, integrating design details from the Marleys' previous home with new features fit for the family conducive to cooking, eating, and, for the youngest members, playing..

The largest project was refashioning the open-plan kitchen, dining room, and family area to a relaxed space that suited their needs. “I cook every day,” Marley told AD. “I'm Jamaican, so sometimes I introduce the kids to Jamaican dishes like steamed fish.”

The home's decor, though regal, maintains a modern simplicity that allows the children to be children. “My style is simple but royal,” shared Marley. “For me, royal means things like high ceilings; I like space and I don't want to feel cramped.”
