Christina Murphy Interiors

I don’t know that LOVE is a strong enough word for this perfection . . .

The glass cloth on the ceiling is fabulous, and I love the ebonized parquet floors.

I’ve always wanted to have a room done in a high-gloss or lacquer treatment.  I love the peacock color on the walls balanced with the white sofas and big windows.  To me it feels classy and sexy, yet also comfortable, which I love.

Three things steal the show here: the wallpaper, the lighting, and that amazing hammered table base.

Love the gold detail added to the mirrors on the built-ins.  Again–sophisticated,  but comfortable (a style that I love!).

I can see myself drawing those shades and curling up on the couch for a movie!  Love the cozy feel.

My favorite thing here? The storage under the crib (the rug’s not too shabby, either!).

More gloss, both on the floor and the walls.  Looking at this makes me wish I would’ve kept my parquet entry . . . . 

So many great things here. Love the mirror, love the Diamond Jute (find a similar one here), and all of the chairs.

I know I don’t need to say anything about KWID trellis, so let’s jump to the club chairs, the lighting placement, and all of that natural light!!


Black doors + Black floor (the showstopper in this house!) + Wallpaper + Bench + Dresser + Art = Breathtaking.  (I really just could’ve mentioned everything in this space . . . )

I’ve been thinking more and more about painted floors lately, and these really make me want to take the plunge. Not in my home, of course, because my floors are only 4 years old, but somewhere, in somebody’s home.  I love the backsplash and the Acrylic/chrome stools, too.

All photos courtesy of designer extraordinaire, Christina Murphy.  If you haven’t had the pleasure to view her portfolio, you must check it out.  So many beautiful rooms.

Can you believe she started just 10 years ago?? AMAZING.

    I love the peacock color too- and that is a hard color to get right! I wonder if I could paint my son’s room that color and it work…..thanks Dayka, this one was full of great ideas! 😀

    I know its weird that I know this, but that black bench is almost the same as one the Martha Stewart used in an entryway in a publication a little while back.

    Great Photos.

    I do like these, orange grass cloth on the ceiling – yes. Those mini wing chairs in the hall. Can’t take the chevron floor; even the picture is a migraine trigger.

    You are TOTALLY right. Love can not describe this. Her use of laquer is amazing. The room with the indigo laquered walls and the nursery are my faves. Thanks for posting. I think I have a new design crush. xo, Cristi

    Oh Em Gee!! As soon as we buy a house I am going to knock off every freakin detail that I can of what she did! Her house is amazeballs..COMPLETELY!! I am saving this post to my faves. I can’t wait to paint a room high gloss/ lacquer!! You think I could wipe on poly walls? I would sure as hell try. I want a whole glossy room.

    Seriously drooling over these photos. There’s not a single room here that I don’t love!

    LOVE the room with the diamond jute rug and spindle chair. It’s perfection!

    I love all the varied ceilings! The first photo with the grasscloth – I never would have guessed that’s what it is. The chocolate brown entry has what looks to be silver leaf or glass or maybe just glossy paint. The black & white room appears to have a soft gray ceiling. I look up all the time at off-white paint, and have been inspired to change that. Thanks! CrisG in CA

    is that penny tile backsplash in the last picture glass? or metal? I would love to know what that is it looks wonderful!

    Also the chairs with the acrylic “ghost” legs! DIE . . *sigh* I wish I could afford those babies. .
