Rocket Man


What do you get when you mix Sir Elton John, his partner David Furnish, and interior designer extraordinaire Martyn Lawrence-Ballard? A very chic LA pad! Check out these photos featured in the December issue of Architectural Digest.

Both Elton John & his partner wanted a place that was very LA, something very '70's and reminiscent of the building's architecture, and as quoted "Boogie Nights." Sir Elton wanted a period vibe as a backdrop for his art & color photographs and aside from that - color. That says the man - who is himself very colorful! And as Elton's partner states; "Martyn takes your taste and gives the most gorgeous, sexiest version of it,” says Furnish. “Not having a template style, he’s a true collaborator.” I think that's a great quote and couldn't agree more - this space really reflects who the clients are.


The living room with sweeping views of the city.


Love the Kelly green painted wall and dark floors.


The 1960's chandelier is from the Grand Hotel in Milan.


Elton's colorful office space (and so happy to see he is a Mac user)! Definitely a chair for the one and only "Rocket Man!"
