Tide Design is a unique, high quality, handmade furniture design company. When they wanted to extend their workshop in Huntingdale, Vic to include a showroom and retail space they called on the talented interior architect Mairead Murphy of Maike Design Studio.

It's on a beautiful piece of land in central Victoria. Where, from the top of their little hill, you can witness some of the most beautiful sunsets every night.
What's the best way to make you feel like you've been on a holiday when you have limited time and a budget? Take a road trip.
When the weather is doing its thing, I chuck my camera in my little red car and see what I can find.
