Everyone already dreamt of having a “super-star” home in California! Here’s the place where you can find a midcentury-modern architecture and interior design styles combo that echoes an international style language. California, a place where you can find one of highest multi-award winning based interior designers, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, which he is renowned for his broad range of styles and eclectic, yet sophisticated and always inviting interiors.
Martyn has been consistently named as one of the world’s top 100 interior designers by Architectural Digest, featured permanently in Elle Décor’s A-List, named one of the top 25 designers by Hollywood Reporter, and part of the Luxe Interiors + Design Gold List 2012. Now, would you want to live in his Palm Spring fashion house?
The view of Martyn Lawrence Bullard outdoor Palm Spring house
Martyn Bullard and property developer Michael Green, soak up the sunshine in a 1963 house by James McNaughton, a Hollywood set designer who found the ultimate canvas for his flights of fancy in the desert sands of the Coachella Valley. With an arched exterior canopy that segues into interior colonnades, the structure looks a bit like an early maquette for Wallace K. Harrison’s Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.

The Emerald green living room color scheme features a De Sede sofa, a Martyn Lawrence Bullard Atelier swivel chair covered in Dedar velvet.
Bullard largely preserved McNaughton’s floor plan, restoring sections of the home that had been altered over the years. To make the place more accommodating for visitors, he converted a pool cabana and what had been a lavish dressing room into additional guest quarters.

Bullard also transformed an erstwhile library into a seriously plush screening room bathed in emerald-green lacquer and furnished with topographical de Sede Terrazza sofas covered in Ultrasuede.
Bullard describes his interior design styles as “a mix of swinging ’60s with a touch of disco ’70s.” In specific terms, that vision translates into a roster of stellar furnishings by Vladimir Kagan, Willy Rizzo, Paul Evans, Milo Baughman, Angelo Mangiarotti, Karl Springer, and Charles Hollis Jones, among other avatars of groovy modern furniture.
