This L.A. Home Is the Ultimate Slumber Party Pad
Looking through the photos of Cara and Poppy Delevingne’s Los Angeles home, I couldn’t help thinking: this is exactly the kind of house I would’ve dreamed up when I was eight years old. You might think that sounds like a disaster, but you’d be wrong. It is glorious.

We get a peek into the pad, courtesy of Architectural Digest. From the pineapple door knocker to the queen-sized bunk bed clad in bamboo in the guest room, everything in this house seems designed to appeal to your inner child. There’s a pool! A pinball machine! A monkey chandelier in the dining room! There’s also a tropical-themed bar with a keg and a movie room with velvet banquettes and a stripper pole, so there’s plenty to appeal to adults, too. It’s the ultimate slumber party pad, no matter your age.
That’s a lot of excitement for one house, and could have resulted in a bit of a design mishmash, but somehow it works. It all comes together in a kind of tropical modern luxe way, a testament to the serendipitous way that bringing together things you love can sometimes create a style of its own.
The sisters each have their own master suite, with styles that reflect their personalities and unique tastes. Poppy’s is a bit more subtle, but still comports with the home’s tropical vibe, with a DeGournay wallpaper behind the bed, patterned with monkeys and toucans. The extra-wide headboard adds a luxe touch.
In Cara’s bedroom, the whole bed is extra-wide. (It’s a custom job, measuring an impressive 11 feet.) With a mirrored base and a counterpane of purple velvet, it definitely commands the room, which has the luxurious, playful feel of a ’70s smoking lounge. The bed’s size makes it perfect for sleepovers, and the pool is right outside, through a pair of glass doors. It’s every kid (and every adult!)’s party perfect dream pad.
This is a house that’s full of surprises. Want to see more? Pick up the September issue, or check out the full tour on Architectural Digest. We also recommend the video tour, which will give you a closer look at the house, and is a very entertaining eight minutes.
