I recently came across this gorgeous image of blue and green fabrics on The English Room ~ a favorite blog of mine. The fabrics are featured in the lovely Chateau Guetsch in Switzerland.

Martyn Lawrence Bullard redesigned this famous boutique hotel and restaurant, expertly maintaining it's historic charm, while giving it an added flair that took the aesthetic of the property up a notch. Take a look...

The hotel boasts unparalelled views of the city and lake of Lucerne.

The gorgeous Darya Ikat ~ from Bullard's fabric collection for Schumacher ~ fills the room... here

What a dream vacation it would be to visit this fairytale-like castle.

One of the guest rooms...

My interest peaked, I was prompted to search for more from Martyn Lawrence Bullard. I found bedrooms aplenty ~ each new find more beautiful than the last...

I've posted this image from MLB before ~ love the mix of blue, green and yellow.

This image has been all over Pinterest and instagram... 

Those sliding doors are brilliant... I believe this is from his work for the Osbourne family.

Although Bullard is extremely diverse in his design projects ~ contemporary, ethnic, and traditional represented with confidence and flair ~ this is the image I would choose if asked to point to MLB's style... Dramatic and glamorous and comfortable.

A great example of his modern work...
