Who's Doing the Green Room for the Emmy's This Year?

Architectural Digest chooses Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, an AD 100 designer with a stellar career which began at the ripe old age of 18....(I know!)! His past clients include the likes of Cher, Sir Elton John, Cheryl Tiegs, Christina Aguillera, Felicity Huffman, Tamara Mellon....the list goes on, let me tell you.
Before we get to the presentation board images for the Emmy Green Room, I thought it would be fun to take a bit of a trip down memory lane. I have chosen some of my favorite Lawrence-Bullard designs which have graced the pages of the leading shelter magazines. Just so you can see how stellar this designer is:


The photos show how adept Mr. Lawrence-Bullard is in any style, from traditional to contemporary. Perhaps the mark of a truly great designer is that one would feel comfortable in any of the environments they create. There is something about every one of these rooms that is very appealing: the mix of objects, the proper scale, the combination of colors.
It is small wonder he was chosen for the 61st Primetime Emmy Green Room design! So here is a sneak peek at the Moroccan oasis Mr. Lawrence-Bullard has created:


The designer acquired many of the antique items from 1st Dibs. The custom area rug is from The Rug Company. Edelman Leather supplied the leather floor tiles. Schumacher supplied many of the fabrics.

Martyn has been blogging about the progress (so cool), so take a look here.
And I love the fact that there is a Mood Board! (I always love to see how other designers present.)
For more info on the making of the Architectural Digest Greenroom at the Primetime Emmys, click here. It is quite interesting to compare the designs of the last eight years shown on the website. I think this year is going to be a winner.
AND don't miss those Emmys!!! Sunday, September 20 at 8PM (ET/PT) on CBS.
Who are you rooting for? Me, I'm loving Hugh Laurie of House, M.D. (which premieres Sept 21 BTW!)and Mad Men (of course!)

I love his theatrical flair! And I'm rooting for Kenneth Branagh. I thought he was fabulous in Wallander!

Oh, I certainly love Martyn's style, all this combination of texture, color and style put together in perfect harmony.
His rooms look easy to live in and enjoy. I also love his variety of style. Thank you for sharing!
