It's easy to think that Will Smith's house would be all about modern gadgets and records hanging on the walls and stills from movies where he's running in slow motion.

But according to a recent interview he did with New York magazine, the truth is that it's all about promoting creativity. When asked if people would be surprised by what's in his home, he replied:

Our whole dream for our home was for it to be an artist’s haven. So there are paint supplies; there’s a piano with a microphone and a recorder right there to capture things right in the second. There’s editing equipment. There are cameras. I think the only thing in our house that people would be surprised by is the efficiency... ...we are [serious] about how the microphone at the piano has to be on and the recorder has to be ready to go for when somebody gets an idea. The paint supplies have got to be kept up—you know, you cannot go to paint something and a color’s empty.

So erst assured that if you ever stop by the Smith's and have an impromptu idea for a song, you can record it immediately upon conceiving of it.

Perhaps you'll be the next to whip your hair.
