Homebuilder KB Home said Tuesday it will build a community in Los Angeles County with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.

The community, called KB Home (nyse: KBH - news - people ) Terrena Vista, is scheduled to open in fall of 2007 in Lancaster, Calif., the company said. It is the second community the two companies have built together in the state.

KB Home said the 97 houses that will be built in the community are inspired by Martha Stewart's personal homes in Maine and New York. They will be one to two stories high and range from 1,875 to 2,968 square feet. Prices will start in the low $300,000s, the company added.

The homes will have specialized flooring, bathroom and kitchen fixtures, lighting and paint colors that match Stewart's style, KB Homes said.

The two have partnered on eight neighborhoods in Georgia, North Carolina, California and Texas and Texas.

KB Homes shares fell $1.23 to $44.76 in morning trading. Martha Stewart Living shares climbed 81 cents, or 4.8 percent, to $17.69. Both stocks trade on the New York Stock Exchange.
