Martyn Lawrence Bullard
240 pages, $50
With its distinctive black and white interior featuring a larger than life-size photograph of Elizabeth Taylor, frankly this book immediately captured my attention with its cover. Martyn Lawrence Bullard: Design & Decoration is the Hollywood A-list designer and star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators follow-up to his successful Live, Love & Decorate. The multifaceted designer is also known for his product lines with Christofle, Haviland Limoges, and Schumacher.
Bullard’s penchant for creating luxury and glamour in his interiors is fully evident in the book’s 240 pages, showcasing his love of color, texture, and use of unique global objects and pedigreed antiques. The book profiles a wide mix of styles and locations from a Connecticut country estate and a Swiss chateau turned boutique hotel to fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger’s (who also penned the book’s foreword) pop art-filled home in Miami.
