From Ordinary Home to Celebrity Crib

WHO says you have to be rich to live in the lap of luxury? This January, the Style Network’s new series My Celebrity Home teaches DStv viewers how — with some creative thinking and a little elbow grease — the good life can be had at a reasonable price.


After an exclusive tour of stars’ posh pads — Hilary Duff shares the secrets of her special sewing room, Kathy Griffin shows off her hip LA home — host Peter Marr joins forces with a lucky homeowner and a famous designer to re-create the high-end look without the Hollywood price tag.

 Screening every Sunday at 9pm, the show takes a look at One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton’s home.

One of the most interesting homes that has yet appeared on My Celebrity Home, it is going to be the inspiration for Jessica and Stephan’s new apartment.

The young couple recently moved in together and they need a unique dining space for their high-profile professions. Will the crew be able to bring Hilarie Burton’s Victorian dining room to the home of Jessica and Stephan in only two days and for only US$3 000?

Staying with homes, another must see program for DStv audiences this month is Clean House on Saturdays at 9pm.  The program helps families by giving them professional help to overcome clutter and the mess that goes with it.

In each episode, hosted by comedian and mother Niecy Nash, Clean House brings its team of experts, removes the offending clutter, sells it at a yard sale, and uses the profits — with the first thousand matched by the show’s producers — to redo the overwhelmed space.

 It’s a problem faced by many families, but now there is professional help on the way to guide them through the spring-cleaning of a lifetime.

After the profits are compiled, Style’s crack interior design team (including Trish Suhr, the yard sale diva, Mark Brunetz, the designer and Matt Iseman, the go-to guy) dramatically transforms the newly de-cluttered home, while the family anxiously await to see their newly made-over abode. — Multichoice.
