Wyomissing native Taylor Swift will be getting a special award at this Sunday’s American Music Awards—the first ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence.
This week Web Urbanist published “Flintstones Furniture: 15 Designs Made of Stone and Lava,” and while I can’t be sure they were thinking of the late Dick Clark’s unbelievable Flintstones house, each of these designs is a lovely complement to his home’s interior. In fact, the gallery offers prospective buyers some decor ideas, should they be overwhelmed by the possibilities.
My favorite pick is the Livingstones, which I’ve long been obsessed with because I’m basically a cat and I just want to sleep all the time. In fact, I love all of Stéphanie Marin‘s work because so much of it caters to the high-end beanbag audience — and you know who you are. Below, a slideshow of Marin’s “stone” work, which would soften the hard edges of Clark’s home, both inside and out.
Dick Clark, god rest his soul, was as treasured a Philadelphian (temporary or otherwise) as they come. But was he eccentric? He was. Did he have idiosyncratic taste in home design. Oh boy. DID HE EVER.
His Malibu property — dubbed the Flintstones home for obvious reasons — has not yet sold despite incredible 360 degree views of the Channel Islands, Boney Mountains and the Pacific. On 23 acres, the home is a nature-lover’s dream, with almost equally easy access to woodsy trails and the beach. And the price has been cut from the original asking price of $3.5 million to $2,995,000.
Beyond that, there’s little to say that can’t be said by the slideshow. Please, if you do nothing else today, view this slideshow.
