THE INTERIOR DESIGNER

Martyn Lawrence Bullard designed the interiors of this property for an entrepreneur-philanthropist and his family.

THE PROPERTY

A contemporary house by architect Juan Zapata in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The ground floor has a foyer, a gym, three guest bedroom suites, a laundry and a garage. There is a first floor mezzanine viewing theatre. The second floor has a kitchen/ dining/living room, media room and en suite bedroom. The top floor has the main bedroom suite with outside terraces.

He may be a big name in the design world but Brit-born Martyn Lawrence Bullard is as happy creating celebrity homes Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Cher - and high-end hotels - the newly opened Prospect in Hollywood, the iconic Colony Palms in Palm Springs – as he is working on his sister Tina’s 18th-century pub in Chislehurst, Kent (The Imperial Arms). Now LA-based and a celebrity himself thanks to TV shows like Million Dollar Decorators in the US and Hollywood Me (Channel 4) in the UK, his range of styles and eclectic yet sophisticated and inviting interiors are in demand globally. For his latest project, a modernist new build, designed by architect Juan Zapata to capture the sweeping panorama of a hill-top view in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Martyn’s brief was to create a sanctuary for a busy entrepreneur-philanthropist and his family. ‘It was to be all about vacations and downtime,’ he says. ‘Luxurious but laid-back.’
