After yesterday's post about a famous hip-hop mogul's home, we figured we'd give you something nice to look at today. Fortunately, the latest issue of Architectural Digest (December 2009) offers plenty of choices. We just got ours in the mail this week and we were delighted to see that the entire issue is devoted to celebrity homes. And we loved almost every home we saw!
We especially loved the British West Indies family retreat of celebrated fashion designer Donna Karan (shown above on the left, with her daughter Gabrielle). It's earthy and gorgeous!

Donna's family retreat consists of a series of pavilions -- including separate guest, spa and yoga pavilions-- ranging from 4,000 to 7,000 square feet each. All are located on Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos Islands. It reminds us of film-maker Rob Cohen's Bali retreat.
The main house pavillion (top photo and below) is casually open, with ocean views and numerous spots for lounging.
In contrast, the guesthouse living room, filled with beautiful African Art, looks wonderfully secluded:
And imagine waking up bathed in the morning sunlight in this master bedroom in the spa pavilion:
We would never leave! That's why, it's our Celebrity Home of the Week! Ciao!
