Looking to make little changes to spruce up your space after spending so much time in it? Look no further than today’s profile for inspiration. Cleo Murnane is a mother of three (Emerson, 13, Lake, 11, and Rowan, 2), as well as co-founder and creative director of Project M Plus, a multi-disciplinary studio that employs architects, interior and graphic designers, writers, and other collaborators to design everything from logos to high-rises. One of the firm’s most impressive projects: Cleo’s Silver Lake residence, which she and her husband built from the ground up. With a feel that’s both lived-in and aspirational, it echos Cleo’s own life and ethos. Get a glimpse at the property below, as the talented mother talks about her design philosophy, how growing up in a broken home informs how she parents, and the rocky road to conceiving her third child, as well as balancing the dark with the light in today’s troubled world.
