Stenciled Style in High Gloss Magazine

Are you loving all the digital design magazines that are popping up everywhere these days?? Personally, I prefer the feel of paper over plastic keyboards, but I find it exciting that so much design inspiration is coming through amongst the email clutter I receive daily. I was SUPER excited last week, when I got the email announcing the latest edition of High Gloss magazine. This is the second issue of this magazine, which is the brainchild of Paloma Contrares of the blog, La Dolce Vita.

While quickly scrolling the current issue and guzzling coffee, I nearly choked when I saw one of my original stencil designs, Chez Sheik, featured on a page spread called “Get the Look” of  Martyn Lawrence Bullard.

Now, I had previously not heard of Mr. Lawrence-Bullard (though I have probably seen his work multiple times!), and I dare say it’s quite possible he has still never heard of me, but I am certainly happy for the association-however small. He will be one of the design stars on the upcoming Bravo show, Million Dollar Decorators (which looks like wicked fun!)  Besides designing rooms for celebs such as Elton John and Cher, he has designed a seriously awesome furniture line, as well as fabrics, rugs, and candles. I had a grand old time looking through his company website at projects like these…

Yes, that’s a pink and white stenciled ceiling with a red rug. I especially loved seeing this as I am planning on doing a deep pink ceiling in my home office that already has an alcove done in deep metallic red tones. More favs….

I had wanted to do big sliding doors in my work studio, but didn’t. Something like this “would have” been nice!

I’m not sure if this is wallpaper or stenciling, but it’s divine and Cheryl Tiegs agrees!

Amazing embroidery and the hanging tapestry reminds me of the black and gold mural we did in Marrakech.

Simply put. I want that arched carving and mirrored wall!

This is the same wall pattern from above. Check out the chest here.

I could TOTALLY curl up with a book on this couch-and I love nuts!

Not many people would enjoy this much pattern in a room-but I’m not one of THOSE people. Hope you enjoyed! Do you have a favorite?

  1. I want Cher’s room – with a little more color but all her arches and antique mirrors work for me!

  2. Wow love all of this Melanie. Can’t imagine why you choked! BTW several of your designs are now part of my glass intro. Just maybe, ahem, not quite as you envisioned them. A little Debbie-ized. A certain famous singer’s licensing agent spent an hour with the showroom at Market looking at all of our home furnishings possibilities – one never knows does one?

    See you soon – counting the days soon!

  3. I personally like the white bedspread with the embroidery . I could see your feather stencil embroided on a spread and pillows!! Also love the wood exotic arch design with the mirrors!!

  4. Melanie, I tore that pic of Chers room out ages ago, those mirrored arches are awesome! love love all the pattern too!!!
