|Zoe Murphy for Liberty of London|
I love these pieces of furniture by British designer Zoe Murphy.
By upcycling retro drawers and cabinets with thoughtful colours and intricate patterns, she has created something contemporary and fun.
I reckon this 1950's style vibe lends itself perfectly to a Kiwiana/Wellington hipster interior - just add some pink fringed lampshades and a beige velour sofa and you're set.
Strangely enough Zoe studied at the same place as me - Loughborough University, which is even more impressive because that little Midlands town is far from inspiring!
Anyway, if you're in the UK you can find Zoe Murphy's pieces at Tent London during September
or at Liberty.
For those of us on the other side of the world, we'll just have to make do with drooling over her website - http://www.zoemurphy.com
