Martyn Lawrence-Bullard: Live, Love, and Decorateby Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Tim Street-Porter (Photographer), Elton John (Foreword by)
For those who love boldness in design, Los Angeles-based interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard demonstrates his mastery of dramatic environments for a clientele of celebrities. Drawn to glamour, Martyn Lawrence Bullard moved from London to Los Angeles to pursue acting but became a star decorator instead. His designs balance the contemporary with the traditional, the Occidental with the ethnic. His celebrity clients’ homes are inspiring in their chic yet sumptuous styles, including Sir Elton John’s disco-luxurious apartment with a python-skin bed, green lacquered walls, and mirrored cabinets; Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo’s hip Mediterranean villa in the Hollywood Hills; Cher’s residences-a Moorish palazzo in Malibu and a Beverly Hills Indian fantasy; and Tamara Mellon’s New York City penthouse that dazzles with bold artwork and striking color. With a knack for beautiful and dramatic spaces that don’t sacrifice comfort, Lawrence Bullard-who stars in the upcoming Bravo television show Million Dollar Decorators-reveals his know-how for creating a sensational home.

Nothing more than everything you've already seen in the magazines.
OK, first, I love Martyn Lawrence Bullard's design aesthetic and would not want to discourage anybody from buying his book. He is amazing, no doubt. But...I was disappointed with the photography in that, there were few wide angle shots. Most of the photos were of small vignettes, when I was hoping to see the whole room, or entire house (from room to room). Martyn, if you are reading this review, please show us more in your next book! Thanks, DEB
