Maria Billis has always been captivated by distinct, modern design. A long standing passion of creating a subtle mix of luxury and simplicity in her own homes and her great sense of sleek modern style is what influenced Maria to pursue her talents as a design specialist. Her remarkable design abilities portray a fabulous touch of elegant contemporary flair for the sophisticated client.
Maria has studied at the KLC School of Design under Kelly Hoppen, a well known British designer, has greatly admired the works of renowned French designer Christian Liagre, and continues to draw inspiration from traveling and staying at modern boutique hotels, visiting hip and trendy restaurants, finding great home design shops and reading cutting-edge fashion and decorating magazines.
Her unique and creative projects range from an ultra-hip townhome in Southern California to an urban, chic showcase house in Upstate New York. One of her most extensive projects was the design of luxury condominium residences constructed by the Eastside Group, a major East Coast urban developer. In addition Maria's work was featured in two showcase homes in Saratoga Springs, New York.
