    I actually only like the NFL player’s house!! The others I could do without…. well, I would still buy them if they were affordable for me, but his was my favourite!

      Yes, they all lack that homey feeling but I would pick Alicia’s Soho property, if only to live in Manhattan. It could be completely redecorated to bring some much needed warmth to all that space.

    I’m partial to Kara’s house in Studio City… those vaulted ceilings and arched French doors mixed with rustic stone fireplace are very attractive! Surprised by Hines Ward’s home though… he was such a charming sweetie on DWTS, but his house seems rather cold.

  3. says

    Really like Kara’s home, the style, the windows, of course would make some changes…:)

    I’m with you on this Julia… I love Kara’s house (although I’d have to add a bit of colour). The other’s are too shiny and showy.

  5. Sarah says

    Lovely homes, but I wouldn’t feel that sense of comfort living in any of them. Just not my personal style, I guess.

  6. says

    Well, I guess mine is another vote for Kara’s house. I’m about as big a fan of Alicia’s Keys’ kitchen…as I am of her music.

    : )

    Happy Weekend, Julia!

    Out of the three homes, Kara’s is my favorite, but I would make some changes. Like I would make those beams a natural wood color and I would add some color to the house. Other than that, I like it.

  8. Karen says

    I’m not too keen on these homes as they seem lacking in warmth. Of these three, I’m most partial to Kara’s home. I like the arched windows, the vaulted ceiling and the beautiful floors.

  9. says

    I’m with Beverly..the only reason I would consider Alicia’s.. Manhattan. Give me Kara’s though. Love the style of the home and the yard. Gotta have a yard, for my dogs!! One can always change the asthetic of a home, it’s the “bones” that count!

    Wow, that first photo of Alicia Keyes’ house knocked my socks off — the beautiful staircase and gorgeous artwork in particular. Wonder who the artist is for the larger piece. There’s a Keith Haring work in the living room too. And there’s so much sunlight, which isn’t easy to come by in NYC.
