The Design Stars Align in Round Top, Texas

Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Kathryn Ireland Sign Books at The Halles on March 25

BY // 03.22.24

This Monday, March 25, the stars align as two top interior designers, Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Kathryn M. Ireland, sign books at The Halles in Round Top, Texas.

With clients such as Kourtney Kardashian, RuPaul, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, Elton John, Cher, and Tommy Hilfiger, Martyn Lawrence Bullard is the designer to the stars. Kathryn Ireland is similarly striking, as a major interior and textile design force with numerous high-profile home restorations for the Hollywood elite. The kindred design spirits are both British-born, starred in Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators, and are transplants to California. Their work has appeared in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, World of Interiors, Veranda, House Beautiful, and Vogue, among others, and both continually appear on the Elle Decor A-List. 

On March 25, from 5 pm to 6:30 pm,  join Bullard and Ireland for cocktails and signings of their new books, Star Style: Interiors of Martyn Lawrence Bullard (Vendome Press) and Kathryn M. Ireland: A Life in Design (CICO Books). Books will be for sale at the event.

Martyn Lawrence Bullard

In his new book, Star Style: Interiors of Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Bullard dives deep into 15 high-profile projects. With a foreword by Cher and chapters dedicated to “Artistes,” “Fashionistas,” and  “Glamazons,” each copy of the volume is bound in one of three Martyn Lawrence Bullard fabric designs.

Included in Star Style are vignettes from Bullard’s own romantic Hollywood Hills home, which was once owned by Dennis Hopper in the ’60s, then Andy Warhol, and Tina Turner before Bullard transformed it into his Moorish-influenced retreat.

The England-born designer is on the AD100 and Elle Decor A-List, and his work has appeared in every major design magazine. More than just a decorator, Bullard also has a background in acting; he starred in the Bravo series Million Dollar Decorators from 2011 to 2013 and the UK series Hollywood Me. He has appeared in several other design-centered television shows and was a special guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2020.
