Today Architectural Digest is welcomed to Los Angeles by actor-producers Viola Davis and Julius Tennon for a tour of their tranquil, newly-renovated family home. Davis and Tennon, along with their 12-year-old daughter, Genesis, lived in their Toluca Lake home for about five years before embarking on a renovation with LA designer Michaela Cadiz.

“I always want to go big and bold, but not too bold, not garish,” says Davis, the acclaimed Oscar-, Emmy-, and Tony-winning actor and founder (with Tennon) of JuVee Productions, a company that develops film, television, theater, virtual reality, and digital projects. “We were working in South Africa, shooting The Woman King, while the renovation was unfolding, and we were inspired by the incredible color and culture there.”
