Maria turned her passion into her full time career in 2004, after attending interior design classes at Moore College of Art and Sheffield School of Design. She opened Beach Dwellings Design in August of 2005, and has made her dream of living at the beach and working with clients in this seaside environment come true. She loves to pull the natural elements of the coastal surroundings inside, working to incorporate the colors of the water, sand and ever-changing sky into her designs. Maria also attends a variety of seminars and design trade shows throughout the year to maintain her affinity for the continual evolvement of trends within the industry. From traditional to contemporary, and every design in between, Maria loves to bring her clients' style to the forefront to create the home or business environment they've always dreamed of.
