A Deliciously Charming Afternoon with Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Yesterday at the Washington Design Center I had the pleasure of  attending a presentation by the nothing less than amazing, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, a face made famous by the hit Bravo TV Series, Million Dollar Decorators.

I  adore Martin Lawrence Bullard’s  designs.  His new collection for Schumacher is an adventurous use of color, texture, pattern and scale, inspired by his exotic travels around the world.

The Sinhala print is a re-imaging of a classic Northern Indian motif The Tree of Life, an image deeply rooted in the belief that all things on our planet are interconnected. Bullard breathes new life into this culturally recognized design by introducing vivid colors and a new sense of scale.  It feels fresh, current and classic all at once.  I recently used this print for chairs in a client’s living room and it truly brings great energy to the space.

A few of my favorite interiors by Martyn Lawrence, there are so many…

Martyn signed copies of his new design book, Live, Love & Decorate. His sweet and delightfully funny personality won us all over.  My favorite quote from the day was when Martyn reminded us to “always pay attention to our surroundings” A simple truth that applies to all areas of our life.
