Simon Cowell is building a £10 million home in Barbados with mirrored walls in the bedrooms.
The 'American Idol' judge has bought a 10-acre site for his new house, which will boast six bedrooms, a swimming pool and a helipad.
A source said: "No expense will be spared. It will have all the latest gizmos and boy toys. Cowell has been very specific when it comes to what he wants and insisted on the mirror panels in the bedroom. He thinks they will be hilarious and can't wait to show them off.
"Simon will be personally overseeing the whole building process."
Simon is "in love" with the Caribbean island, and already owns a £5 million house there.
The source added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "He is undecided at the moment about whether he will sell his other home or not. He's so rich he might keep both of them. It's a luxury he can afford."
Meanwhile, Simon's half brother Tony is reportedly desperate to star on UK TV talent show 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Tony has already asked producers if he can appear on the next series of the show, which is a direct rival of Simon's series 'The X Factor'.
A source said: "It's early days but Tony's been in touch and producers are keen. The Cowell brothers going head-to-head would make great Saturday night TV."
