Who knew the Godfather of Heavy Metal would reside in such a soft, romantic space?

Ozzy Osbourne rose to fame as lead vocalist of English heavy metal band Black Sabbath. Since then, he has achieved multi-platinum status with a solo career, voice acted for animated films like Gnomeo & Juliet, and starred in a popular MTV reality show, The Osbournes, with his wife Sharon, his son Jack and his daughter Kelly.

After selling the Beverly Hills home featured in the reality show, Ozzy and Sharon scooped up a Cape Cod-inspired mansion in the gated community of Hidden Hills, Calif., for $12,388,500. The eccentric couple hired designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard to redecorate the home. Adorned with antique French furniture, glittering chandeliers and hand-painted silk wall coverings, the home is lavish yet comfortable.

To achieve this feel, you don't have to be a multi-millionaire with multi-platinum status. Read these tips to achieve your own luxurious, romantic getaway on a budget.

Dress Your Windows Elaborately

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall

Painted Floors

For a stylish touch, try painting a design on your bedroom's wood floor. In this space, a diamond-patterned floor balances out the delicate floral print on the walls and adds subtle visual appeal. Before you start painting, take time to prepare for this project by marking your design on the floor and protecting areas that you don't want to paint with tape.
