Mairead Murphy  Melbourne based designer and illustrator. Between here and @maireadmurphyillustration a photo each day (almost) of something that makes me happy.

New day. Different site. The rate of progress is really exciting ... but once they get started, feels so fast after looking at the design on paper for so long.

We're mid way through renovating a pair of post war weatherboards. Staying within the original 90 square metre footprint to make the most of the generous back yards - we're working on design efficiency and the joy of shared spaces and beautiful simple details.

There's so many elements to consider when we are designing spaces to give a sense of home. There is real beauty in domestic life and domestic objects and I feel so lucky that they are tools I get to work with every day. (This is another perfect combo of textures and materials from @thedesignco_op)

I love this set up by @sisalla_interior_design from the weekend. All of it. It even makes me want to get a cactus. 🌵

I had such a fun time yesterday on the @thedesignco_op panel for Melbourne Design Week, chatting about our practices. There's more great discussions happening today and the beautiful space is worth a look too.

This idea is so simple but so beautiful and unexpected.

More triennial...

We tried to step away from all the stress and pressures this morning and treated ourselves to a NGV visit.

Details. They make a difference.

Perfection! Another photo from the folk at @madebymorgen of our dresser. This jewelry drawer is going to be lined with electric blue felt from @radfordfurnishings to really set of the beautiful timber.

Reposting from @madebymorgen, a snap of this ridiculously good custom dresser - the first of four pieces they're making for a very lucky Maike client.
