Serena Williams' BATHROOM

WHO

Professional tennis star

WHERE

Bel Air

"I love taking baths," says Williams, 29, who, when remodeling her L.A.-area home, made sure to go all out on the bathroom. "I wanted it to be big. I wanted a claw-foot tub, and I designed the bay windows around the tub to accentuate it. It really makes the room."

Jeremy Renner's HOME BAR

WHO

Academy Award-nominated actor

WHERE

Hollywood

The bar opens early in the Renner household. "I'm there every morning with a cup of coffee, reading the news," he says. And at night? "When people are over, I go down the row to catch up with friends-'What's up? What can I make you?' It's a lovely place to be."

AnnaLynne McCord's BEDROOM

WHO

Star of the CW's 90210

WHERE

Beverly Hills

"Everything I need is in my bedroom," says McCord, 23. That includes a refrigerator, a fireplace and her "big comfy bed." Although she's a proud bargain hunter, there's one thing she won't skimp on: "I splurge on my sheets. They're the softest in the world!"

Boris Kodjoe's HOME OFFICE

WHO

Star of NBC secret agent drama Undercovers

WHERE

Manhattan Beach, Calif.

"It's really cozy in there," says Kodjoe, 37. And the room's placement off the master bedroom means he can study scripts late at night and still be close to his wife, actress Nicole Ari Parker. "She can lie in bed and then come visit me in the office-it's nice."

Haylie Duff's DRESSING ROOM

WHO

Actress and sister of Hilary

WHERE

Los Angeles

"I wanted my dressing room to feel like you were inside a Tiffany gift box," says Duff, 25, who painted the space herself and then added some shimmery touches. "I love the mirrored furniture because it feels really feminine," she says. "And I love the Venetian mirrors on the wall-they don't match, but they go perfectly together."

Emily Procter's LIVING ROOMS

WHO

Star of CSI: Miami

WHERE

Los Angeles

"I love a good old-fashioned formal living room-that's going back to my southern roots," says the North Carolina native and avid interior designer, 41. And the yellow room "is the room that is most like me-there's no need to apologize if I want a red sofa next to a turquoise chest."
