Live Like a Celebrity: Ozzy Osbourne
Take a peek inside the Prince of Darkness' whimsical bedroom and learn how to copy the look in your own home.
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.
Romanticize Your Space
The bedroom should serve as a soothing place to escape the hustle and bustle of life. Fall in love with your bedroom all over again by giving it a romantic, relaxing feel. With different textures, fabrics, patterns and calming colors, you can create a restful getaway right at home.
Dress Your Windows Elaborately
To take your room to the next level of elegance, think beyond the basic window panel and try window treatments that use layers of luxurious fabric. In this room, the striped balloon curtain over the oval-shaped window adds a glamorous touch.
Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall
Adding a glamorous mirror is an easy way to give your bedroom a little glitz, especially if the mirror has a frame with elaborate detailing. Create an eye-catching focal point by hanging an elegant mirror in a prominent place, such as over a fireplace mantel.
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.
