This Portuguese beauty’s colorful style inspires me on so many levels. How amazing is her outfit in this photo? I just adore a designer that lives and breathes her own style. Now let’s take a look at some of Maria’s work:

Working with an all-white backdrop, Maria layers cool tones of blue and turquoise. To warm it up, she adds punches of pink and peach.

Here’s a closer look at the coffee table decor. Love the fish bowl!

That silver tray is amazing, and I imagine her book is the same (Amazon, here I come!!)

Everywhere you look there are these quirky details, like the pink matted orange elephant prints.

I love how all the bright warm colors stand out on the chilly color backdrop. Really makes the red tones pop!

Loving this console table. Add a coat of turquoise paint and oversized nailhead trim to a basic console table, and you have an instant statement piece. Simple as that.

Color flow is achieved from the living room into this entryway by using the same basic color scheme, but in different quantity. How amazing is that credenza?

This is another space Maria designed, more specifically, her home! It’s light, it’s bright and it’s fun. Maria definitely has a unique style.

  5. I featured a few snippets of her work from Adore Home Mag but you have way more pics than they had. Wow, I made one of them my background at work, lol. So colorful and such happy places. What she done with furniture is inspiring me to jazz up this console/entertainment tower that I have had for 8 years.

  6. That was such a nice post! – Thank you so much! – So glad my designs can be an inspiration!
