Sir Elton John and David Furnish’s house in Los Angeles
Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard creates a Los Angeles space that’s both child-friendly and bursting with flair for the stars' newly expanded family. The idea behind buying the 1960’s period home was to create a comfortable West Coast Base for the couple and their expanding family. The search didn’t take long. On the first day of hunting, Furnish found the nearly 5,000-square-foot, single-story structure, built in 1966 in Trousdale Estates, a neighborhood famous for its midcentury architecture. The floor plan was perfect with open living spaces that allow the couple to entertain the way they want to whilst still creating intimate family spaces.
It is clear that the house belongs to contemporary art lovers as a Jeremy Blake digital print sets the tone for the living room. It’s hard to make hot pink and zebra stripes tasteful, yet somehow Bullard has managed this. The family room turns the traditional decor concept of using a dull couch with bright pillows on it’s head; instead Bullard has used a bright green couch with black and gray pillows. The shelves along the L shaped wall add a touch of messiness that every family home should have. The bedroom is really Bullard’s masterpiece as by using silver mylar on the ceiling, he has managed to have the Mapplethorne photographs and the view outside reflected in a myriad of colors.
