Story
Tagline
Use what you LOVE; COLOR dramatically changes everything; and GREAT DESIGN doesn't have to cost a fortune.
Introduction

Award-winning interior designer and digital content creator Michael Murphy discovered his innate design talent at 10-years old.

After living in one white box after another, this army brat finally had enough. With his parents gone for the day, Michael scavenged paint from his neighbor's garage and restyled the family's cookie cutter army base housing into a designer showplace. (At least that's how he remembers it).

Today, this talented designer still relies on the same principals that guided that inspired boy: Use what you LOVE; COLOR dramatically changes everything; and GREAT DESIGN doesn't have to cost a fortune.

Michael has designed and styled hundreds of rooms for clients, television, print, and advertising. He has developed products and coordinated launches for an international furniture line with Office Depot, a national furniture line for Flexsteel, a national bedding and home accessory lines for QVC and HSN, coordinated six interior design books published by Clarkson Potter, developed an extensive fabric collection for Jo Ann Fabrics, designed products for Smith+Noble, 3 Day Blinds and Catalina Lighting.

With this extensive background in the home arts, Michael founded his own design firm aptly titled Michael Murphy Design. With the same foundation that guided him on an army base in Kentucky several years ago, Michael is designing rooms using the things you love and creating engaging digital content that is unique and inspiring.

Sometimes we all need a little #openspace to #reflect on the important things in life.

Reading between the lines is a project between two #Belgian #architects that provides a solution, as well as #inspiration.

The #slsbeverlyhills is dark, quirky and well thought out. Great place to catch up with old friends.
