Michael Weatherly: How Having Kids Influenced My Décor

04/14/2015 at 05:00 PM ET

With two dogs and two young kids at home, Michael Weatherly can’t be too attached about his home décor.

“The key to me is everything has to able to be sat in, used, able to get thrown up on, or crayoned,” the NCIS star, 46, tells PEOPLE exclusively of his no-fuss furniture philosophy.

“A lot of it is just utilitarian, and because of the dogs and the kids, we’re not precious about stuff.”

That doesn’t mean he and his wife Bojana Jankovic, 34, had to compromise much to balance having a stylish home with one that was also kid-friendly for their two children, Olivia, 3, and Liam, 17 months.

“I think that [having kids] certainly influenced some of the rounder pieces that we acquired after the kids were born, but a lot of the furniture that we have here now is from before the kids, so it’s a mix,” says Jankovic.

04/14/2015 at 04:00 PM ET

Penn Jillette built his dream home in the middle of the Las Vegas desert 20 years ago, long before he had children .

“I built the ultimate bachelor pad,” the magician, 60, exclusively tells PEOPLE of his 12,000-sq.-ft. home, complete with a Scrabble bathroom, hidden rooms, fire poles, and an indoor theater.

Jillette later decided to have children with his wife Emily, 49, and soon realized that his colorful, quirky house might not be the best place to raise kids.

“In 2005, I started a family, so we began to change the house,” explains the talkative half of Penn & Teller, who will making a limited return to Broadway this summer.

“When we talked to people about making the house child-friendly, it was impossible, so we built another house and added onto it.”
