Maria is the lead home decoration consultant at Elegant Living Spaces. Having worked with famous Italian brands, such as Max Mara and Gucci, she holds very strong to the philosophy that your home is not just a place to live, but also a space that should lift your spirit. Unlike most interior designers and decorators who are trained as architects and floor planners, Maria started in luxury fashion in Europe helping the most demanding celebrity customers find the best fit for them and getting very involved in the visual merchandising of the luxury fashion stores . Likewise in interior decoration, she captures the spirit of the homeowner and purifies the soul of the space with her taste for art and sense for aesthetics.
Maria is Brazilian by birth. She spent most of her professional life in Europe and has been in Canada for the past 10 years. Having far-reaching experience working in diverse cultures that particularly value style and art, Maria concludes that decoration is about ‘creating well being.’
Some interior designers and decorators may have a faceless approach towards work; they would sell you an existing floor plan and then get it implemented by contractors. Their role is not much different from that of a project coordinator who sells pre-designed plans you see in catalogues. Maria works with you on a personal level and gives you what you desire deep down from your soul. She introduces positive energy to your home and makes sure that your home looks and feels modern.
A seasoned artist with a sense for innovative styles, Maria doesn’t treat your work as a ‘project,’ but as a ‘unique piece of art.’ She starts by identifying your ideas about life, success, work, style, happiness and your taste for art. She will then carefully and passionately craft a design philosophy that will clearly and elegantly communicate your ideas. Your philosophy, woven into your home, will last generations and stay preserved as a grand piece of art.
Whether it is a bedroom, a living room, office, commercial or corporate setting or any space, it should begin conversing before people start acting. Maria knows how to add that magic to your home and convert it into a pure marvel.
Remember, decoration is not only finding the best fit in terms of measurements, but also exploring what matches and resonates with you, so it can completely tranquil the atmosphere. A worthy piece that would hypnotize and soothe you calls for beauty that should come from taste, selection, emotions, inspiration, assimilation, aesthetics, and passion. Maria does just that to your home.
Similarly to Feng Shui and Vastu Shastra, Maria has her own way to arrange your decoration in relation to the flow of energy.
Maria can make cultural transitions in her work with much ease. The good news is that she can break the language barrier when serving clients with her proficiency in speaking French, English, Portuguese, Italian and Spanish.
