When Martyn Lawrence-Bullard set out to decorate Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's expansive new home in the northern reaches of Los Angeles, he faced a fundamental question: How do you bring a dose of enlightenment to the dwelling place of the former front man of Black Sabbath-a.k.a. the Prince of Darkness?



The designer set aside the Moorish influences he's so fond of for a refined yet comfortable country-house feel, combining reclaimed-wood floors and Victorian-era barn doors with French antiques and painted-silk wall coverings. "I did have to control Sharon from buying everything she could see," jokes Lawrence-Bullard. (She collects English tea sets, antique Italian dolls and vintage Americana, among other things.) "We pared down and chose a few beautiful, good things for the house," he says. Ultimately, for Sharon, the idiosyncrasies make the place. "People here in California tend to have very big homes, but they are like hotels-everything's beige," she says. Her house is more eclectic and personal. "It shows individuality," she adds. Lawrence-Bullard couldn't agree more. He calls it "very them. Easygoing but still opulent-with a little rock-star edge thrown in."
