A neutral open space in Kourtney Kardashian's home/Photographer: Douglas Friedman/Designer-to-the-stars Martyn Lawrence Bullard recommends grouping objects—like books, artwork and other decor—to achieve a similar impact in your space.

If you’re interested in living large, look no further than designer-to-the-glitterati Martyn Lawrence Bullard. A palatial, family-friendly home in Calabasas, California designed by the decorator for reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian was featured in Architectural Digest in 2017, and encapsulates the luxe-but-understated look that she and her famous family are known for.

"Kourtney wanted a home that had a sophistication about it, representing her maturity, but also allowing it to be a family home, a light and bright ambiance that her kids would enjoy being in where friends feel welcomed and comfortable," explains Martyn. Want to create that same vibe? Read on for Martyn’s tips.

1. Go neutral—but layer, layer, layer.

"A neutral palette that allows art to shine and her collections to take center stage" is a running theme of Kourtney’s home. Do the same for yours with a similar approach: "The mood of the home can be achieved by layering shades of the same tonal colors, with textural fabrics then making the statement in the space."

2. Keep paints in the same family.

"The paint colors in the house are mostly Benjamin Moore. The background is a personal favorite called Decorator's White, also White Dove, Linen White, Classic Gray and Wrought Iron color used for stair railings and windows."

3. Make a statement with lighting.

"Bold lighting pieces become the stars of the rooms," says Martyn, "while upholstery should always feel inviting and be deep and comfortable."

Kourtney Kardashian's kitchen/Photographer: Douglas Friedman/The home's general palette, including its kitchen, is largely gray and white, with occasional pops of color found in Kourtney's extensive art collection.

4. group special items.

"Add sneak peeks of your personality with books and artwork that tell who you are, grouped on tables and consoles."

5. Keep drapery chic and simple.

"Unlined linen drapery adds the luxury of fabric," says Martyn, "yet appears effortless and easy." We could say the very same thing about the entire house!
