Congratulations to Sir Elton John and David Furnish on their wedding this weekend. 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.
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.
The lacquered partial wall that divides the living and family rooms hosts a neon work by Tracey Emin; paintings by Keith Haring are displayed nearby.
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.
The dining area features a vintage Paul Evans table with a customized glass top and Bullard-designed chairs; the vases are by Lalique and Venini, and the photographs in the background are by Richard Caldicott.
The dining room’s vintage pieces include a Georg Jensen pendant light from Ceylon et Cie, a Lucite-and-glass table by Pace International, and Paul Evans chairs; a strié wall covering by Phillip Jeffries serves as the backdrop for paintings by Haring (left) and Wang Guangyi and a group of photographs by William Eggleston; the glass vases are by Nancy Callan, and the rug is by Kyle Bunting.
Two Willem de Kooning works on paper hang next to a Bullard-designed chair and a Ligne Roset side table in the dining room.
The kitchen’s white cabinetry and Corian counters by DuPont are offset by splashes of color from the 1960s Venini light fixture and vases by Lino Tagliapietra, Venini, and Steven Weinberg.
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.
A group of rare Robert Mapplethorpe flower photographs from the 1980s grace a wall in the master bedroom.
In the master bedroom, a Mapplethorpe photograph is displayed behind a ’70s aluminum lamp.
The shoe closet, with Louis Vuitton luggage.
A pair of artworks by Gavin Turk and a vintage Versace vase enliven the vanity in the master bath; the sconces are vintage Mazzega from Downtown, and the shower is sheathed in Bisazza mosaic tile.
Zachary’s room, painted in stripes of Benjamin Moore blues, is outfitted with a vintage chrome chandelier from Downtown, a Bullard-designed daybed, a Saarinen side table for Knoll from Design Within Reach, and a carpet by the Rug Company; the artwork is by Peter Beard.
The children’s bath features a vintage sconce from JF Chen, an IKEA mirror, and glass tilework designed by Bullard.
In the powder room, Alvar Aalto and Venini vessels complement the Designers Guild wallpaper and the Osborne & Little fabric that covers the ceiling.
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.
