What is the intersection of art and interior design? To many designers, interiors are an art form. This is certainly the case for Martyn Lawrence Bullard, celebrity interior designer famous for the bold, bright, and eccentric spaces he creates. For Dee and Tommy Hilfiger’s Miami Beach house, interior design as an art alone was not enough; Martyn took the design a step further by taking inspiration from pop art and fashion to create a truly unique space. One of the best rooms in his home makeover is this bubbly yellow bedroom.

When looking at the fashion designer's pop-art-inspired bedroom decor, the first thing experts notice is its vibrance and joy. Darlene Molnar, Washington DC-based interior designer, states: 'This space is unabashedly energetic. It feels very Miami, very Warhol, and very groovy.' She continues, 'Yellow is the happiest of the primaries. This home wouldn't be what it is without it. The yellow carried through is like a little sun following you around.'

Interior Designer Darlene Molnar holds a Master of Arts degree in Interior Design from the Corcoran College of Art and is both NCIDQ-certified and LEED-Accredited. After several years with a top architectural firm in Washington, DC, Darlene opened her namesake design studio in 2010. Shortly after, she was featured on HGTV and named both a “Hot New Talent” by Home & Design Magazine and “Best in the City” by DC Modern Luxury.

Interior designer and founder of Fig Linens and Home, Carlin Van Noppen adds: 'A yellow bedroom is a great idea because of the energizing and joyful nature of the color.' She continues, 'This shade is sure to fill you with excitement for the day every morning. Furthermore, the way that Martyn Lawrence Bullard has executed the design with large swaths of white and lucite helps to ground the bright color and keep it looking fun and playful instead of overwhelming'

She has over 20 years of experience providing design expertise for beautiful homes, hotels, yachts, and private planes and now manages a boutique that has been named the Best Linen Shop in Connecticut several years in a row.

Experts laud the way that Martyn has designed this room based on the art of Andy Warhol to reflect his client's interests and eclectic style. Darlene says, 'Art is one of the most personal aspects of an interior and can often be a reflection of a specific part of ourselves we want others to see in us.'

She continues, 'As an interior designer identifying why a client is drawn to something plays a big role in my creative process. Art might evoke nostalgia, energize, or inspire. Understanding a client's selection is crucial in personalizing the rest of their project.' True to her suggestion, the bold, poppy execution of this bedroom aligns with the whimsy of the city of Miami and Tommy Hilfiger's unique tastes. No wonder Martyn Bullard has been chosen as one of the world's best interior designers.
