Hot Apartment Slaparo in Park Slope, Brooklyn – New York.
It may sit on Park Slope soil, but Apartment Slaparo is on the move. Charmingly cosmopolitan, to journey to this home is to leave Brooklyn’s shores far behind. Persian rugs drape dark hardwood floors and no origami is too intricate, no artefact too exotic to slot into the sitting room’s melting pot. If the bedrooms and bright palette speak of Southern beauty, the kitchen’s French doors and English style-tiles are all old-world warmth. But with Manhattan within easy reach on the F train, we think your next destination might be somewhere closer.
Rural Virginians by summer and winter, New Yorkers by spring and fall, your hosts are no strangers to travelling. That said, they love being within walking distance of Prospect Park – so close it could be their second backyard.
The kitchen’s off-white cabinetry and cosy wooden table could be straight out of a southern magazine spread. Steer a course to the gorgeous sitting room to find bare bricks, bulging bookshelves and warming swathes of red and green. Speed upstairs to see the anteroom, complete with sewing machine and wall-hung quilt, or make sleep your destination in one of three eclectic bedrooms. The queen is sweetly draped with Navajo rugs, while tiny birds perch atop the master’s delightful four-poster.
