Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Martyn shares what inspirated the Greystone bedroom and wonders why Jeffrey would turn down doing a room.

on Dec 18, 20120

Kathryn Ireland lands the gun room kitchen originally used to prepare game, while Mary takes the grand hallways. Jeffrey for some crazy reason decides not to be involved, a mistake, of course, that he appears to regret later. . .

Now apart from designing these spaces to wow the visitors, we actually have another reason to create exceptional design spaces because Luxe magazine, now an internationally acclaimed magazine with worldwide distribution, will be doing an issue dedicated to the mansion. Who will get the cover? Who will get a double page spread?

. . .As Mary says "your only as good as your last publication," so this spread is vitally important to establish status within the industry and power status in the issue! As the design dramas unfold and decorative magic is created the under cover tensions of who will get the best exposure bubbles to a boiling point!

I love this episode, the design is good, the dramas are, well, dramatic and the results are mouth watering. This episode is Million Dollar Decorating at its best. Hope you'll enjoy, and hope you'll agree with the final magazine layouts and choices!

Live, love, and decorate a show house!

Martin you are my latest obession or love.  I love your ostentatious style.

I just  tune to hear you talk. I am a Brit settled here in Texas and I have a great love for other Brits out here like Lisa in Real Housewives but my biggest obession is classy gay men like you and Reza but you my darling are terrific, your looks, your mischivous smile and little off the cuff statements you make have me giggling like a silly school girl. I dont know what it is as a straight woman I miss my gay friends in London and you and Reza fill that void.  I hope you will be on TV. for some time to come.

I really liked the mirror on the desk table! As one artist to another, I can tell your artistic style is changing and refining (in terms of subtlety)? Anyway. Can't wait to see your development.

Martyn your taste is so big and loud it can be a bit hit and miss for me(I didnt like Tamaras red dining room and that 3 ton table really wasnt worth closing a NY street down for!). But when you get it right its a knockout. Pure luxury with gret texture and layering. Its extravagant and not for the faint hearted. I think the biggest compliment(besides the 4 page spread) was that Jeffrey seemed bothered enough to make  digs at you. Is she jelly maybe?  ps; your other half seems lovely, the perfect balance for you!

Love your style Martin! You are my new favorite designer! I just bought a ottoman covered in a fabric you designed from Etsy.com The seller/designers are called Martha and Ash. I love your style and over the top zest for life and CHOCOLATE. As you say Super Glam Glam!

Martyn:

Once again, your design was sumptuous!  The Greystone master bedroom was elegant, beautifully layered, and each element you utilized in your interior was unique.  The room was the epitome of luxe - no wonder your efforts resulted in the double page spread!  I cannot wait to see what you create the rest of the season.

Thank you for sharing your talent...

I really love what you did with the bedroom at Greystone. It was what I would want my bedroom to be. It was just awesome. Wish I could afford you. :)

 @Jason1004 I dont think they are put on actually! he's just an exhibitionist personality who likes to make people feel important and special. But he has great heart and people genuinely love him it seems. His boyfriend seems a sweetheart and I think that speaks volumes about Martyn too.
