Maria Kaplan has a passion for all elements of design with an enthusiasm for mixing styles, colors, and textures. She enjoys using traditional home décor in unexpected ways while infusing her client’s personality into each space.
Maria believes that successful decorating involves a tremendous amount of communication with her clients and is not just about making a beautiful house, but also about creating a comfortable home. She specializes in residential interiors and has earned a reputation for having an exceptional “eye” and a deep commitment to outstanding personal service. She enjoys exploring new design programs with technology, but also loves a good old-fashioned pencil and graph paper. Maria’s designs encompass
- …well-functioning, spacious rooms,
- …calm, but inspiring palettes,
- …and a “whole-house whole-life” perspective.
Advising clients is not new to Maria whose former careers have taken her from coast to coast as Casting Director, Talent Agent, Director of Advertising at WeddingChannel, elementary school Chorus Director, and avid community volunteer. For over a decade, Maria has successfully bought, redesigned, and sold residential properties and has consulted friends and family on decorating, organizing, color selection, and entertaining in their homes. She has excellent working relationships with contractors, painters, electricians, furniture designers and other local design professionals and uses these relationships to ensure her clients the best possible pricing in their respective specialties. Maria is a licensed REALTOR in the state of California and a member of C.I.D. She has also completed professional coursework in interior redesign and organization by industry leaders Barbara Jennings and Lisa Steinbacher.
When she's not drafting virtual design boards for her clients, you can find Maria on 1709 driving between school, cheer, basketball, softball, music and tae kwan do. She resides with her husband and three beautiful children in Southlake, TX.
