Alpaca carpets, Saint Laurent surfboards, and Basquiat paintings: Meet the interior designer who worked with Kylie Jenner on her lavish mansion in one of LA's ritziest suburbs
Martyn Lawrence Bullard is one of the most prolific interior designers in the world.
His clients include Kylie Jenner, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Cher, Tommy Hilfiger, and even Kid Rock.
In an interview with Business Insider, Bullard talked about his design principles and his famous work on Jenner's Hidden Hills home, Cher's LA condo, and Tommy Hilfiger's Miami escape pad.

In 2018, Martyn Lawrence Bullard was designing a home for a 21-year-old client who had some unusual requests for a starter home — she wanted to fill it with Damien Hirsts and silk Patagonian carpets.
Of course, it was a then-pregnant Kylie Jenner, who at the time had an estimated net worth north of $800 million. And for her Hidden Hills home, he knew he had to bring his A-game.
"It was very important for me to be very respectful and to make sure that we brought her the best of the best of things," Bullard told Business Insider. "I wanted to make the house playful … a super-customized home, with a playful young edge, but sophisticated still."
And so he worked tirelessly, helping the young mogul fill her home with Basquiats, Warhols, and Hirsts.
He picked out the silk, alpaca, and shearling Patagonian carpets which were then laid throughout the home.
He carefully situated the dining room chairs, each customized and upholstered in various shades of pink, from cerise to powder, dyed to match the colors found in her lip kits.
