MARTYN LAWRENCE BULLARD
#luxury #interiordesign #celebrities
Who? LA-based English superstar Martyn Lawrence Bullard. He has been named by Architectural Digest as one of the world’s top interior designers and starred on Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorator (US) and Channel 4’s Hollywood Me (UK). He is also a bestselling author and has a star-studded Little Black Book. MLB has decorated homes for Cher, the Kardashians, Tamara Mellon and Tommy Hilfiger, to name but a few.
What Inspires Us. His luxe, layered approach. No-one does decadence quite like Martyn Lawrence Bullard. He is also deft at creating interiors that reflect the client’s personality.
Watch Out For. The green-eyed monster. From Santorini to Palm Springs, MLB’s jet-setting life is laden with luxury. Also look out for sneak peeks into exclusive Hollywood homes, such as this snap of Chloe Kardashian’s extraordinary private screening room. Well, we never said he was understated.
Martyn Lawrence Bullard will be making a trip Down Under in July 2018, as the International Keynote Speaker on Day 2 of Decor + Design 2018, Australia’s No.1 Interiors Event. Subscribe now to be notified when tickets are released.

Who? The renowned Australian stylist Megan Morton creates interiors that ‘make people obscenely happy.’ Megan counts celebrities, magazines and her next-door neighbours amongst her clients, with editorial work spanning Elle Decoration UK, Vogue Living, Vanity Fair and Inside Out.
What Inspires Us. Megan’s inimitable sense of style harnesses a fearless and unconventional use of colour, as well as the sophistication of a true globetrotter. There’s a reason the fashion, food and art fraternity trust her implicitly to translate their vision. From Rajasthan to London to Sydney, Megan’s unique perspective and inimitable taste make her feed a veritable explosion of inspiration.
Watch Out For. Her often hilarious, confessional captions.

Who? No list of design influencers would be complete without Sibella Court. The Sydney-based stylist and designer is renowned for her unique style, a luxe bohemian cornucopia of world influences with a distinctly Australian edge. The former host of Restoration Australia has a degree in history and a deep and abiding love for heritage. Her talent for evoking atmosphere has been put to use for clients all over the world. Plus her interiors for iconic Sydney restaurants such as Mr Wong’s, The Beresford and Hotel Palisade remain.
What Inspires Us. Her gorgeous style. Her feed is unmistakably Sibella, with symbiotic colour palettes and a Morocco meets Bondi vibe.
Watch Out For. Bonus extra – her wardrobe. Sibella has never met a neutral she couldn’t master and is one of the few who can make a beekeeping outfit look chic.
