    Default Elton John and David Furnish' Beverly Hills Home - AD March 2013



    [IMG]Sir Elton John (seated on a marble chair by artist Ai Weiwei) and David Furnish at their 1960s Beverly Hills, California, residence, which was decorated by Martyn Lawrence Bullard.[/IMG]



    A vibrant digital print by Jeremy Blake sets the chromatic tone in the living room, which is anchored by a Willy Rizzo–style pink-lacquer cocktail table by Lawson-Fenning; vintage sconces flank the mantel, crafted of Corian by DuPont, and a David LaChapelle photograph hangs on the far wall. Bullard designed the club chairs—upholstered in a Mongolian-lamb fabric from Mimi London—and Vladimir Kagan–inspired sofas. The chinchilla throw is by Loro Piana, and the aluminum side table is from Ligne Roset; the carpet is a prototype design by Bullard for the Rug Company.



    [IMG]Bullard conceived the family room’s wall shelves and sofa (with integrated white-lacquer shelves). The black and gray pillow fabrics are by Schumacher; a hemispherical Barovier & Toso vase rests atop the custom-made table by Lawson-Fenning.[/IMG]



    Clad in a silver Mylar by Astek Wallcovering, the master bedroom’s ceiling reflects both the colorful Mapplethorpe photographs and the view outside. The B&B Italia bed, upholstered in an Edelman ostrich leather, is dressed in Frette linens and topped by a throw pillow in a Schumacher flame-stitch fabric. The torso sculpture is second-century Roman, the chairs and ottoman are vintage Vladimir Kagan from Bourgeois Bohème, and the alpaca carpet is by the Rug Company.



    Bullard designed the terrace’s sofas, covered in a Summit Furniture fabric, and concrete tables; the sculpture is by Roy Lichtenstein, the pool’s limestone coping is by Ann Sacks, and Stephen Block of Inner Gardens did the landscape design.

    I did notice that green bowl vase and thought it was interesting.

    The zebra and shag rugs leave a lot to be desired. I adore the pool, the red chair and ottoman, and the (what looks to be) Andy Warhol Liz pic in the living room but otherwise--WTF? Tackity tack tack TACK! Elton--this is soooo disappointing!

    Reflective ceiling in the bedroom! I see what the designer was going for, but there's just a bit too much white and a bit too much fug
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    I'm betting those babies won't spend much time in the white rooms. Not a wise choice with the little ones.

    Was he going for what Kitty said?

    That Martyn Bullard gets so much celebrity Los Angeles work. They want that over the top bam pow thing and they get it.
    Cher had the same designer for 40 years without a break either until he died or they had a falling out over a project, and then she hired Bullard to do the LA pad she's selling now, but that one is definitely her and less him. She probably said do what I want and he said okay.

    The thing is, if I had to have a super-modern house (I prefer old houses), I'd want it to be over the top and totally swanky, dramatic and weird, but yet I don't want it to look anything like this. At all.

    And there is something about that backyard that is downright depressing. I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but I realized it's the fact it's devoid of trees. The view is nice of course, but I don't like the yard.
