Inside Travis Barker’s Calabasas ‘zen’ home, complete with recording studio
For 16 years, the legendary Blink-182 drummer lived in the minimalist abode with his three children, who he now shares with his new wife Kourtney Kardashian and his family.
“The vibe of that room — and my house, really — was like Zen,” Barker, 46, said. AD as he showed the living room. “When I come home from long tours or long nights in the studio, just a place to rest my head.”
The nearly 10,000 square foot home was designed by Waldo Fernandez, on the recommendation of none other than Kris Jenner.
“I loved the simplicity and Zen quality of his work. We connected immediately,” Barker said of his first encounter with Fernandez.
The one-story abode includes a home recording studio, where Barker recently collaborated with Machine Gun Kelly and Willow Smith. The kitchen matcha station is equipped with cinnamon, nutmeg and cocoa. And Kourtney Kardashian – who sat on the kitchen counter in a button-down lounge shirt – agreed that her husband makes the best matcha in Los Angeles.
The sober, neutral-toned home is a far cry from Barker’s former residences, which he says were full of “flashy cars, murals and bicycles hanging from the ceiling.” Now he prefers a peaceful environment.
“With three kids of mine, plus Kourtney’s kids, this place was perfect for this time in my life. I wanted a home where I can rest and enjoy my family, a place where we can make memories,” Barker said.
While Kourtney’s house is only a block away, the drummer plans to convert his home studio into a bedroom with bunk beds to accommodate his three children Mason, Penelope and Reign.
“In the future, I guess we will wait to find something better than what we have. Wherever we end up, we feel incredibly blessed and grateful,” he said.
The couple was legally married on May 15 in a courthouse ceremony in Santa Barbara, California. The Poosh founder shared a series of black and white photographs from the occasion on her Instagram account, with the caption: “Till death do us part.” The newlyweds got engaged in October 2021 after less than a year of dating.
