ART + DECORATION N ame an exotic locale on your travel wish list, and megastar interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard has probably designed a home there. As known for his worldly glam aesthetic as he is for his A-list client roster (Cher, Ellen Pompeo, Tommy Hilfiger), the L.A.-based British designer debuts a collection with Perennials. The 28 vibrant prints are laced with his trademark ikats, paisleys, Eastern architectural patterns, and mosaic motifs. "It's a marvelous collection that blends ethnic moments with my contemporary point of view," he says. "Think Palm Springs mid- century vibe with African and Indian influences." Bullard's history with Perennials, which he calls "chic and tremendously durable," is long, as he's used the high-performance fabrics in his projects for years.

A classic flat card on fine cotton-fiber paper has a colored border that complements with one of six Biscuit prints on the envelope liner.
