Spring Cleaning Week

I've recently (as of 10 minutes ago) decided the rest of this week is going to be 'Spring Cleaning Week' here at House of Slappy. I have oodles of coolness and/or covetable interiors stashed away in a lone manilla folder which has been screaming for attention since I've started my humble little blog. That being said, it's not going to be a week chalk full of brand-spanking new design porn, people. Trust me....it will be good stuff, so just sit back in your Eames recliner and enjoy.

First up we have one of my favorite (I'm afraid I'm going to use 'favorite' very loosely this week) spreads from the October 2008 edition of Metropolitan Home featuring an incredible home in the Hampton's decorated by designer Shamir Shah and built by architects by Shigeru Ban and Dean Maltz.

A long hallway parallel to the pool connects the living room and master bedroom wings. Perfection.


One canopy serves as a carport...

...and the other canopy shelters outdoor seating.

How lovely are those two Papa Bear chairs by Hans Wegner?


Can we just talk about this adorable dining area for a minute here? The neutral colors, the custom screen, the proximity towards the sliding glass door (which I'm sure opens to the pool area) all of which = LOVE! However, as much as I love it, let's not even talk about how one is supposed to dust that chandelier.




..and here we have the 'media room'. Media room? I don't see a 50" flat panel anywhere...


So this is what an actual gym room looks like...

The Master Suite...

I remember seeing those great tree stumpish black tables- they're wild!

I look at this house, nod my head, and think "Some people just live well."
