Who We Are

The Maude Squad

Owner and Creative Director Leslie Murphy founded Murphy Maude Interiors in 2016 out of a desire to bring artful interior design to the Mid-South. With an eye toward lush, elegant interiors, Leslie’s bold point of view continually moves the mark of what interior design can be in the modern world.


Affectionately known as the “Maude Squad,” our team of creative professionals use art to create a sensory connection between the natural world and the built environment. We bring together all areas of design through in-house expertise and strategic partnerships to provide a fully curated, one-of-a-kind experience. Working collaboratively across disciplines, MMI is infused with an artistic spirit that takes our work beyond what is typical in the Mid-South. 


With MMI, you will see your vision unfold in the hands of our experienced team of architects, designers, and artists who are passionate about going beyond the ordinary to create the remarkable.

Our Creative Process

At the core of our work is the belief that the built environment should be a balm for the soul. As we weave together the visual with the tactile, we create a sensory connection that enhances the experience of daily life. Each interior becomes an expression of the human spirit through distinctive design that revitalizes the way you move through your space.


We draw inspiration from the endless well of details all around us, whether exploring the storied remains of Turkish empires or walking the worn pathway of wood and rock leading to an aged red barn. Remembered moments of our hands sinking into a sheep’s soft wool or the texture of a horse’s long mane become a source of sensory connection to draw from as we design a space. Whether the eddies and ripples of the Mississippi River flowing through our Memphis home or the bright blue of Caribbean seas, the organic and the natural always find their way into our work. 


As we wander the world, we notice how a structure is built around a tree in Tulum, and baskets become light fixtures above layers and layers of sun-antiqued rugs. Surrounded by incense and energy, we imagine curating jewels from Northern Africa and the Middle East as the focal point of a vibrant interior environment. Everything we see and experience, from the wood veneer of a guitar on Broadway to the leather and tattoos of East Nashville, create the foundation of artful, joyful living we bring to your space.


Our commitment to design remains boundless artistic creativity while staying true to the practical needs of each client’s lifestyle. With this forward-thinking approach, we view each space through the lens of art – the inspiration in moments remembered, the whimsy in the details of our daily life, and the meaningful moments we crave.
