Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Martyn is ecstatic that we got to meet his partner, Michael... and experience first-hand just why it's so difficult to live with a decorator.

I worry like crazy that my latest scheme, however, will be one that he will like and feel at home in, so I decide that a colonial Indian antique chandelier will be the piece that seals the deal, knowing that Michael loves this kind of fixture. I invest heavily in this piece in the hopes that it will make him as happy with my re-do as I am!

In the meantime Mary McDonald gets inspired by the seductive designs of Monika Chiang, the fashion industry's latest bright spark. She is commissioned to design a glamorous new flagship store in New York that will not only become a staple for fashionistas, but also the perfect backdrop for season after season of inspired designs. Now, I know this kind of challenge can be difficult. I myself having designed several Jimmy Choo stores know that retail spaces have to provide not only a reinforcement of the brand but also be subtle enough to let the products shine. . . Mary wants the palette to be fresh with mauves, mint green, and touches of malachite. It's bold, exciting and fashion forward. However, Monica seems to find it too distracting and not at all to her tastes. It takes all of Mary's great charms to persuade her that this is an amazing scheme. Fashion as always proves itself to be fickle!

We are teased with an oh-too-short moment of Kathryn and her beloved Jacqueline once again letting their hormones run amuck as they seduce a naughty chef in Santa Barbara!
