Tamara Mellon's Sex Pit

Martyn shares how many grey hair he recieved creating the Jimmy Choo founders daring dining room.

The season kicks off with a bang! Full on decorating dilemmas, untold glamor, and of course hysterical situations!

I have a big story in Episode 1 where I revisit my long time client and friend Tamara Mellon. Having recently sold the company she founded, Jimmy Choo, for $850 million Tamara has decided to finish off her apartment with a glamorous or as I like to put it "legendary" dining room and treat her daughter Minty Mellon to a new teenage bedroom!

Of course with Tamara being such a style maven it is essential I design for her a full on sex pit of a dining room that will wow even the most distinguished guests.

You followed our journey through the conception of the designs, the inspirations, the shopping in specialist stores for amazing vintage furniture, and, of course, the much anticipated client reveal!

Along the way however we encountered some major dramas -- a 3000 pound marble and granite custom table bound in bronze that just won't fit into the elevator! A team that just didn't know how to keep to a schedule, and a dastardly manufacturer who runs off with my custom designed fireplace!

The stress factor in this episode nearly killed me, but the result as you saw was worth the extra handful of grey hairs it caused!

Meanwhile as I struggled to pull off my sexy designs my darling Kathryn Ireland took America's favorite housekeeper Jacqueline on a riotous wine tasting extravaganza where Jacqueline fancies tasting rather more than just the local wines!!!

Mary McDonald as always is hilariously funny as she juggles a difficult client and her ever-changing mind and mood, resulting however in a chic, calming, color-coded guest house nestled in the most exclusive of Bel Air addresses.

Jeffrey makes only a brief appearance in the premiere as he and his boyfriend also partake in a little wine tasting. . .It appears however they have been slightly over-served and confusion abounds in a hilarious cameo appearance.

All in all the volume has been turned way up this season. The design is hot, the dollars are in the millions, the clients are bigger than life, the decorators are crazy, and the results are super glam glam! Enjoy and remember always -- "live, love, and decorate"!

Mary McDonald on Jewels

Mary knows that the focus of this episode was her extensive jewelry collection.

This episode was clearly hinging upon my fabulous jewelry. . .obviously. . .

I know, I know I keep it all in those plastic trays? Wel. . .for now yes. I honestly have so much it needs to be color-coded and then put in drawers. This house doesn't really have room for all of my glamor. But BTW how can Lavin never had heard of Live Aid, even if he wasn't alive?

I need to overshadow my cast with this riveting episode about my personal jewels and stay silent regarding their stories -- except for Ross and Jeffrey who actually were made for Nantucket. Good job boys. See you both there this summer that's for sure.
