Taylor Murphy Design Studio

Based in Austin, Taylor Murphy not only offers commercial and residential interior design services, but he also makes a product line that includes wallpaper and fabric. Murphy discusses his eye-catching prints and what he has in store for them.

Why a product line?

Seeing a piece of my vision in someone else’s life–knowing I have related to and hopefully shared a bit of my joy for life with them–gives me so much satisfaction. My prints and products are an extension of me that I love creating for customers.

What inspires you?

My current wallpaper collection is inspired by travel. I love exploring cultures and interpreting what I see through my aesthetic filter and into a final design. Travel, art, fashion and interactions with friends and mentors all influence my work.

Describe your aesthetic.

Bold and layered, pared down and intentional.

What’s on the horizon?

Anthropologie will carry a couple of my studio collection wallpaper prints this year, and my fabrics will debut in showrooms and on my website soon. Once the line is out, pillows and small fabric goods are in the works.
