Track Record Development Projects
Year Formed: 2015
Happy Place was founded in 2015, and is the creation of Interior Designers Madelyn Dransfield and Julia Ryan, who combine their extensive experience earned in Australia and the UK, in Interior Design, Property Development, Marketing Strategy and Communications, Property Styling, Project Management, Furniture Sales and Procurement and Colour Consulting.
At Happy Place we pride ourselves on strong relationships with both clients and suppliers, valuing openness, communication and respect. We collaborate with key partners to deliver our projects, including architects, craftsman and artists. We are passionate about designing for the client, not for ourselves, breathing new life into each space and ensuring projects are stylistically diverse and have personality and individuality.
News & Insights
I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Happy Place on a number of Berkeley projects over the years. They are always professional, supportive and understand every part of what we want to capture in great detail, whether it be working on new Show Homes or residential Marketing Suites. Madelyn and Julia have fantastic communication skills and are always organised and listen well. They take great care in ensuring that the design is creative and really are a pleasure to work with!

Julia, Madelyn and the rest of the team at Happy Place are absolute experts and a joy to work with. Not only do they deliver stunning interiors to the brief but they go over and beyond our incredibly high expectations to create contemporary and unique spaces that impress time and time again. They are focussed and efficient, always delivering on time and are not afraid to push the boundaries and experiment when needed. In situations where we have given a very tight deadline, changed the brief or had to manage around overrunning construction works Happy Place have been adaptable, professional and friendly.

We had a great experience with Happy Place. From start to finish they were professional and accountable. Most impressive was their ability to listen and find solutions for our needs. I would highly recommend their services.

We found Happy Place through a recommendation (always a good sign!) and weren't disappointed. Madelyn & Julia were super-friendly, quickly understood the brief, the budget and our inevitably tight timelines. They presented a fantastic, coherent scheme that built beautifully on the somewhat spartan bare-bones of an office. It was then smoothly delivered with no fuss, to schedule and within budget - well exceeding our (high) expectations. It's been a genuine pleasure working with such commensurate and creative professionals - I've no hesitation in giving them a five-star rating.
