Maria Lebeault

research shows that exceptional interior decoration has profound impact on our attitude, health, relationships and performance

this is what drives elegant living spaces in every single project , residential or commercial, striving to make you feel good at home, at work,in your special event creating unified, fresh, contemporary and welcoming spaces

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 or your office is not just a place to live or work, 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 or employees 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 living in Toronto 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.’
