I f you’re a fan of the reality-TV series Million Dollar Decorators, then you may have seen designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard visiting his supermodel client Cheryl Tiegs last season when he was working on her “Balinese-inspired” house in L.A. Here’s a closer look at how it turned out.
Tiegs listed the house for $12 million earlier this year but removed it soon after. It said: “This magical Balinese inspired estate is located through the prestigious East Gate on one of Bel Air’s most distinguished streets.”
“The private and lushly landscaped grounds feature a swimmers pool, guest house with bath, meandering pathways, tranquil fountains and beautiful views of the city beyond.”
“A spacious chef’s kitchen with center island and hand painted tin ceiling features magnificent stenciled walls using Indonesian motifs. The floors and counters are eco-friendly Cambria stone.”
Martyn Lawrence-Bullard Design talks about the project and has more photos, including one of this bedroom fireplace with a painting of Tiegs over it instead of what was shown in the listing:
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues made Tiegs famous. This People cover from 1978 described her as “The $2,000-a-day woman,” which would probably be chump-change for a supermodel today:
