DESIGN BY BRAVO CONTINUES WITH NEW DOCU-SERIES "MILLION DOLLAR DECORATORS" FEATURING LA'S MOST SOUGHT-AFTER INTERIOR DESIGNERS

Designers Include Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Kathryn Ireland, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald and Nathan Turner

NEW YORK - March 24, 2011 - Millions of dollars are constantly on the line as Bravo gives viewers an unprecedented look into the exclusive and affluent world of high-end interior designers in "Million Dollar Decorators." The network's latest docu-series follows five of the most sought-after interior decorators as they navigate the high-pressured design industry for their wealthy, famous, and extremely demanding clients. From a 20 million dollar estate in La Jolla to the Osbourne's new Hollywood apartment, viewers will get an all-access pass inside some of the most stunning homes in the world. The series will premiere early Summer 2011 with eight episodes. For a sneak peek:

"Million Dollar Decorators" will explore the work and personal lives of Los Angeles-based designers Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Kathryn Ireland, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald and Nathan Turner. These tastemakers often exchange advice and war stories, but are also forced to compete for the same top-tier clients and their endless budgets. Every decision and minute spent is crucial as the decorators rush to finish their projects on time and deliver the absolute perfection their clients expect.

Meet the "Million Dollar Decorators" cast:

Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Bullard, an illustrious, award winning interior designer known for his glamorous and worldly interiors, built his career with Hollywood elite. His global visionary point-of-view of making homes luxurious sanctuaries has made him an arbiter of taste whose larger than life client list includes Cher, Sir Elton John and David Furnish, Christina Aguilera, Eva Mendes, Ellen Pompeo, Kid Rock, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne and Tamara Mellon, founder and President of Jimmy Choo. Bullard's impressive resume also includes commercial projects such as the Colony Palms Hotel Group, executive suites for Paramount and Warner Bros Studios and the Beverly Hills luxury emporium Shizue. Last year, Bullard received the prestigious Andrew Martin International Interior Designer of the Year Award.

Kathryn Ireland

Born in England and raised at her parents' homes in London and Scotland, Ireland arrived in Los Angeles in 1986. Prior to launching her interior design business in the early 90's, Ireland was an actress, clothing designer and filmmaker. Today she is considered one of the most influential interior and textile designers in the world. Ireland's signature style has been described as comfortable, bohemian, and family friendly with large doses of color and a lack of orthodoxy. Her clientele of celebrities and tastemakers include Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and David Mamet.

Jeffrey Alan Marks

Marks believes the design process should be fun and creative much like his designs and personal style, which blends California ease with English formality. Having lived in Paris and Milan for many years where he worked as a model and then in design, his work also draws cues from Italian and French methods. Marks studied design at the prestigious Inchbald School of Design in England. Marks's colorful, laid back design style translates to the atmosphere at his firm, JAM Inc, which he started 15 years ago. Based in Santa Monica, the firm designs and develops luxury homes in America and the United Kingdom and develops commercial projects including restaurants and retail stores such as Tavern restaurant in Brentwood and The Hungry Cat in Santa Monica.

Mary McDonald

Raised in Brentwood, California, McDonald is considered one of the most sought after designers and consistently ranked as one of House Beautiful's "Top 100 Designers." She graduated from Boston University before attending the prestigious Parsons School of Design and began her career as a milliner. Through extensive travel in Europe and the Far East, she has created a personal signature style that is eclectic, classic and clean while maintaining a strong sense of glamour and sophistication. From the refurbishment of Buster Keaton's legendary villa to the recent completion of The Luxe Summit Hotel in Bel Air, McDonald's projects and gorgeous interiors have captivated the design community worldwide.

Nathan Turner

Deeply rooted in California heritage, Turner grew up in the San Francisco bay area surrounded by his large extended family. Turner developed a taste for adventure after spending many weekends at his family's ranch in Northern California. He graduated from St. Mary's College of California with a degree in business and then lived abroad in France and Italy where he studied the area's language, art history, and honed his culinary skills. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Turner successfully merged his greatest passions of design, travel and food into his eponymous shop in Los Angeles. Turner's store has become a faithful source for the country's leading interior designers, as well as some of the most stylish individuals from coast to coast.

"Million Dollar Decorators" is produced by Goodbye Pictures for Bravo. Rich Bye, Jonathan Chinn, Ed Lavelle, Brittany Lovett and Talia Lesak serve as executive producers.
