DIPPED in a garish green rubbery coating, the ornate Louis-style dining chairs from Six Inch of Belgium looked like irradiated doggy chew toys. The white fiberglass centipede reared on its legs was really Scolopendra, a 7-foot floor lamp made by Site Specific Design in Brooklyn. And the beanpole clad in fluorescent pink?

It is a rare quiet day at the Santa Monica villa of computer software king Peter Norton and his wife, Eileen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has recently come and gone, as have William Gray, head of the United Negro College Fund, a group of 800 looky-loos on a garden tour and the guests at a preschool fund raiser. The Nortons are hanging out at the kitchen table. Their butler, who used to work for Malcolm Forbes, hovers discreetly. "We're ordinary.

The recipe rarely changes: Buy a property, invite high-profile designers to tackle specific spaces, create a publicity phenom and sprinkle the entire endeavor with a healthy dose of feel-good charity appeal. Voilà , another showcase house is born when the House of Rock launches in Santa Monica on Saturday night. There may be no better attention-getting way to flip a property like the 1926 that designer Elaine Culotti purchased two years ago.

Crocker National Bank had but three weeks to live, and its employees were not about to let it die without a proper send-off.

Re " 'Do you know who I am?' " editorial, Jan. 22 I fail to see the big deal in holding a badge that is only provided in return for political favors.
