I work closely with my clients to edit, curate and procure items for their homes. It is important that your decor fits your lifestyle. When we are surrounded by the things we love and pieces that represent our life we create a sense of home. A place that is safe, peaceful and loving to enjoy.

It’s a natural talent and never feels like work. It feels good to be appreciated and knowing I can help people fall in love with their living spaces is very therapeutic for all parties involved.

    Ms. Bernal was the only individual who answered my internet search for an artistic curator who would be interested and talented enough to assist me in hanging a large number of photographs that I garnered from my lecturing around the world as a medical school academic physician. Her artistic ability was easily matched by how conscientious she has been in accomplishing the task at hand. Her ability to see how to place a series of photographs and assorted diplomas, certifications and awards from a career spanning ~ 50 years is extraordinary. Unequivocally, the decision to employ Ms. Bernal was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Ms. Bernal is a gem.

    Maria took the time to get to know ME and my style before making any suggestions. Also her knowledge of style, design, antiques and designers is encyclopedic! And she WILL stay in your budget.

    I have a small business and needed to make it look nicer for clients coming in for a conference, etc. I thought it looked OK, but Im a man and engineer so design, furniture placement, colors, map and picture placements, etc I thought were OK. Maria came in and made the place look amazing. She just has an eye and knack, and a lot of it was just simple placement and a rework of the setup. Very classy and well worth it.

    Maria Bernal is very talented with a great personality as well. She has many good ideas and is willing to work within your budget. She sees things that elude the average person. I was perplexed by my dining room and fitting in certain pieces that were dear to me and Maria came in and knew exactly what to do. In addition, she has great access to interesting and one-off pieces.

    Frequently asked questions

    I usually set up an initial consultation in the home to meet and discuss the needs and goals of the homeowner.  I bring my notebook, tape measure, and  camera phone.  The initial meeting often gets my creative juices flowing.  We discuss budget, timeframe and get a feel for what will work best for their lifestyle 

    I studied art and design in school many moons ago.  I come from an artistic background my parents were both talented artists one a sculpture the other a potter.  I studied interior design and lighting with Arthur Argo Childs, decorative painting with Robert Kanisel and window treatments with Christopher Thomas.  I was blessed with exceptional taste and style.  

    Each project is different I offer my clients a few options they can pay an hourly fee averaging $90-175 per hr. Or we can arrange a flat fee with a timeframe.
