You may know high end interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard from Bravo’s “Million Dollar Decorators.” He’s well known for doing the interior decoration of the homes of celebrities like Christina Aguilera, Eva Mendes, Aaron Sorkin, and Cher.
Apparently, Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon is not impressed. She recently sued him…and won…for $2 million, claiming shoddy, low quality work.
The resulting feud made the pages of everyone’s favorite Internet tabloid.
I admit I don’t know Martyn Lawrence Bullard’s work very well, and there are (sometimes) two sides to every story. That said, this latest beef does remind me why I’ve always adhered to my philosophy that when high end interior designers do a great job the first time around, it usually ends up being a lot less trouble.
