Malibu Meets Bali

Balinese-inspired Malibu beach house

After purchasing the place over a decade ago, the owners tapped Martyn Lawrence Bullard, interior decorator to the stars, to reimagine the residence as a sanctuary where Bali meets Malibu. For buyers who want to stay closer to home these days, this beach pad can transport you without any of the worry of air travel.

Architectural details from local buildings in Bali were incorporated, from the black clay roof tiles of the Bulgari Hotel, to the green lava rock tiles in the reflecting pools of the Ubud Temples.

Alongside the original Balinese materials and antiques, I decided to add furnishings from around the globe including items from Japan, China, India, and Portugal to prevent the house from feeling too themed.
