For this week's episode, you see me decorating a modest but cozy new home for my long-time friend, actress Stacey Dash. Stacey has a very girly taste that needs a glamorous edge, so she turned to me to pull off this "sexy girl grows up and lives in her girl cave" look. Layers of her favorite colors from lilac to imperial purple are used throughout the home to give it her edge, while a dramatic black lacquered treatment is brought into the kitchen, and touches of silver leaf and Ann Sacks' distressed mirror tiles give it that "Stacey glow."
We set about scouring the city to find sparkly things that will add drama to her home, as well as some really cool antiques to give character. . .and most importantly, sex appeal!
We have one or two dramas, including the breakage of vintage mirrors by my poor assistant who almost collapses after she drops a majorly expensive piece. . .But slowly we recover and find some amazing pieces to really give the home an individual edge.
Someone that makes a rap album may take 5 minutes to write down an obnoxious lyric and yet makes 5 million.
Love Martyn's designs, creativity, style, etc.....BUT seriously, when he said the rug under Stacey's bed was $10,000, and on it they placed her existing Antoinette Fainting Sofa?! You can buy that from Urban Outfitters or Target for around $600 and $400 respectively. I guess I was shocked someone would place such an economical piece on a rug like that! HOWEVER, love love love the show, Martyn, and Stacey Dash!!! :)
I really loved your beautiful touches to Stacy's beautiful home. I normally don't warm to those colors, but you accomplished it beautifully. I especially loved the kitchen and, of course, the bedroom. I congratulate Stacy as well, for her good taste.
The house turned out fabulous, however it was overshaddowed by the bizarre performance from the home owner.I mean REALLY??? Was she auditioning for porn for a fake foreign country? That was hard to watch.
Was it just me or is Stacy Dash the most annoying person with that over the top fake accent?Ugg, I had to press mute every time she spoke. However the house looked beautiful and thats all that matters.
jules1019 Don't be so serious.:) Have fun with it. Stacy was cute and fun. I loved her reaction to the dropped mirror. That cracked me up and then when she got on that bed...... too funny. She apparently loved the whole house. That is the reaction I love to see when a home is more than what you expect. Martyn Lawrence Bullard delivers again.
Not sure where you get your vision, but absolutely LOVE, LOVE the products you come up with and how you use them. I enjoy the show very much, thanks for making it entertaining and informative.
Just kind of shaking my head in disbelief that you make so much money doing what you do.....yikes!
@vineyardbound Are you envious....or jelly much? Martin deserves every penny if people are willing to go to him for his obvious expertise and extreme sexy creativity. Someone that makes a rap album may take 5 minutes to write down an obnoxious lyric and yet makes 5 million. It’s not about working like a slave; it’s about being an expert at your craft. You always can use what you learn from the show to create your own style on a modest budget. Stop hating!!
vineyardbound its all subjective taste. And rich people choose who they want based on their past work. So theyre getting the taste they desire. Martyn is not cheap and cheerful. Like with anything designer you are paying for the name and reputation mostly.
