Step inside Latin superstar J Balvin's luxury homes in Colombia

June 29, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Balvin is known for his bold hybrid style, but he likes to keep things more subdued on the decorating front.

Gracing this month's cover, Balvin (full name, Jose Alvaro Osorio Balvin) called on the talents of design firm 5 Sólidos to create two living spaces in his native Columbia: a loft in bustling Medellín, and a rural retreat in Llanogrande, 30 minutes outside of the city.

Balvin's tranquil country retreat is situated in a jungle landscape and prominently features planes of French oak, streamlined Scandinavian-style furnishing and Japanese design flourishes -- including framed linen doors and bonsai plants.

Adding a contemporary touch, the properties feature art by Josh Sperling, Takashi Murakami and street artists KAWS and WhIsBe. A look inside one of the closets at Llanogrande reveals more than a splash of color -- in the form of 850 or so specimens from Balvin's sneaker collection.
