Client Testimonials

"Maria is a true creative tour de force.....After all, no matter how gorgeous the space is, if your family's not comfortable using it, it's not really serving its purpose. Maria brings an elegant practicality as she creates rooms that can be featured in a magazine spread as well as treasured by every member of the family."  

~ Katie H, Merion Station, PA

"Maria brings an unparalleled creativity and perspective to interior design stemming from her formal education and innate ability to connect shapes, colors, and style. From the start of a project, Maria meticulously listens to the client's ideas and desires. Based upon that groundwork, she then assiduously attacks her project with keenness, focus, and style. Maria has transformed our home into a warm, elegant, comfortable abode with character and unique pieces from Europe and the United States. Maria is incredibly responsive and timely. She has superlative communication skills thus avoiding any disappointment. She is talented, kind, and fun to work with. I highly recommend her without reservation."

"Maria is excellent at reading the client; she will tune into what you want and deliver the style you love."

~ Wendy Blum, Ivyland, PA 

"Maria took our first floor from a cramped and dark traditional living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen to an airy cheerful open plan that is beautiful and a delight to be in. A very original thinker, Maria reshaped our interior space and directed the interior decoration as well. We appreciated her good sense advice and her aesthetics immensely. Now our space looks like a work of art."

~ Lynn and Steve, Southampton, PA 

"We love Maria -- her style, her understanding of our personalities and preferences, and sensibility. We have worked with her since moving into our current home and she has been nothing but pleasant, professional, and her work transformative. To combine my husband's and my style into one modern, yet artsy, interior design seems like a cinch to her. She is knowledgeable and has that keen artistic "eye", creative, down-to-earth and a good listener. She is easy-going and dedicated to her clients. Maria has transformed our bland house, lacking in color and character, into a homey, relaxing, and comfortable environment for our entire family. Thank you, Maria!"

~ Lynn & Yan, New Holland, PA

 "Maria never let me settle for ordinary or blah. She talked with me about what was important, then created a color scheme that reflected that." 

~ Debbie Wells, Exton, PA 

"It was essential to me to incorporate a special hand-painted delft tile into my kitchen with a contemporary countertop. Maria helped me to integrate an old world look with newer materials and she made it work. It looks fabulous!"

~ Francesca Kattner, Upper Dublin, PA 

"Viola Interior Design created the perfect room for my hi-tech son - an innovative and creative design that he and his friends see as "cool" and I see as practical!"
