From my lips, to your ears, lavender isn't an easy color to work with. Lavender's qualities of quietness,
serenity, constancy and wonderfulness of strong reliability can intrinsically, subtly pull you to its other side, an even powerdull.
That is one point about this article. The other point is: this is Ozzy Osbourne's lavender bedroom.
Ha! Can you believe it.
We all know that Sharon Osbourne was really at work here even before having it confirmed by designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard who reports: “Sharon rules the roost when it comes to decor.”
It matters not, this is the master bedroom of Ozzy Osbourne, the "Prince of Darkness."
In their Hidden Hills, California home, recently profiled by Architectural Digest we get a succulent glimpse. To see the Osbourne's entire home via a slideshow, click here, Lawrence-Bullard, a master interior designer, delivers here.
The Osbourne bedroom is so well done: soothing, luscious . . . almost beyond words. The bedding is by Frette; the savory hand painted wallpaper is by de Gournay.
Ahhhh . . . . the chase lounge in the Osbourne's master bedroom.
Every home should have a chaise lounge. (My personal belief!)
The specific choice here is a Marie Antoinette style piece, in lavender ..... in de Gournay silk velvet.
In times past, chaise lounges were called 'fainting couches,' so love that. Uummmmmmm.
So, when the Osbournes aren't needing a place to faint, they also have this grand sitting area. It combines a Romeo sofa by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard Design with an overscale ottoman.
Sharon Osbourne was clearly not intimidated in directing how she wanted her home to look and feel. Much bravo to the results.
