Cribs: Lil House Edition


Posted by Rebecca, June 13th, 2011

Last night Mike and I watched the NBA Finals. I admit that I am not a basketball fan, I generally prefer baseball and the whole Lebron drama seemed to go on I swear Mike was watching Lebron play months ago and I asked if it was the finals. He laughed and said not yet. I feel like this went on for weeks, where the whole world was waiting for the Miami Heat to lose and for Lebron’s karma to get back to him. Incase you don’t watch sports or didn’t catch any headlines today (okay I know my demographic isn’t the ESPN type), the Heat lost last night.

While watching the post-game press conference with Lebron James and Dwyane Wade, Mike and I wondered what type of place Lebron lived in.


Of course, the internet did not disappoint. Lebron James bought a 9 million dollar, waterfront home in Miami at the end of 2010. It supposedly has 6 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms!

The entry… comparable to ours, right? No?? Oh.

The kitchen, complete with 2 islands. A tad dark for my taste.

My favorite area, I think, the breakfast nook. I want to do light walls with dark doors perhaps when we finish our basement. Plus I love the drum pendant 🙂

I also love the pendant lights over this bar area!

Apparently, King James sits on a square throne? I wonder if the other 8 toilets are like this?

Finally, an area I can relate to! The master bedroom is quite empty and boring like ours. But instead of an awesome balcony we have some… crinkled paper blinds.

I thought this was the master bath, but apparently it is not.

This is the master bath, of course it is the one with the views! (but I think I like the above tub more :))

And last but certainly not least on the inside is the laundry room. This would be excellent, though only Mike and I live in our house. We forgot to wash our towels this weekend and I dried myself with a hand towel this morning. True story. So I guess really, if I don’t use my one washer, having two won’t help much. But I can dream about all of that counter space…

Then there is of course, the backyard.

Complete with infinity pool overlooking a dock with parking for 2 yachts. TWO yachts.

While I was on a house drooling kick, I decided to scope out the homes of some of the other stars who played last night. After searching for Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki’s homes, I stumbled upon the home of Miami Heat player Chris Bosh. (I know, some if you have no clue who these people are, but that’s not important, the pictures are :))

Chris Bosh also bought a waterfront, Miami home at the end of 2010. However, his was 12.5 million smackeroos and boasts 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. Take that Lebron!

The living room, complete with awesome windows.

The dining room, once again I love the dark wood against all of that white! (the view doesn’t hurt :))

The, once again, very white bedroom.

Glorious, spa-like bathroom. The all white works for me so much more in the bathroom!

When I sent Mike this second home, he thought it was much better than Lebron James’s home. To me, it comes across as a little sterile, but I’m not sure if that’s just the way it has been staged with the all white. Though I do agree that it has better views and possibly better bones that Lebron’s home.

What do you guys think about of the all white decor of Chris Bosh’s home? Just pretty to look at, pretty to live in, or good for neither?

Oh and is it too late to learn how to dribble? With my hands, that is. I could use a waterfront home and I’m thinking of switching professions…
