Here's A-Rod in his kitchen with his daughters Natasha and Ella. Industrial materials and textures like steel and concrete are used liberally throughout, and contrast with glossy tile and polished wood.

In the living room, walls of blackened-steel panels face off against a shag carpet and plush couches. The high-end artworks are by Keith Haring (left) and Andy Warhol (right). That piece in red is a portrait of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
