As within, so without, your home is an extension of you. We take great pleasure in designing unique rooms that reflect the characteristics of your personality and lifestyle that make you feel whole, happy and fulfilled. While we can all appreciate great interior design, what symbolizes the underlying design elements is often a matter of individual taste. What appeals to one person's sensibilities may not appeal to another's. That is why taking your individual personality, perceptions and sensitivities into account is the guiding principle of our work. It is also guided by another principle; that of Feng Shui. Whether your space is dedicated to productivity, relaxation or entertainment, Santamaria Designs guarantees a decor that will resonate deeply with your sense of self and place.
For more than 20 years, Santamaria Designs has worked with our clients to create remarkable environments that inspire and restore the mind, body and spirit. Working closely with you, we explore your aspirations, lifestyle and tastes, to orchestrate design elements that reflect your authentic self. From there, we apply the ancient principles of Feng Shui to optimize harmony and balance to embody those desires.
President, Santamaria Designs
Pilar Reyes graduated from the acclaimed School of Architecture of the Universidad Javeriana Bogota, Colombia. After 25 years of designing for renowned architect and decorator Richardo Vargas Espinoza, she launched her own firm, Reyes Santamaria Arquitectos, in 1995. In 2000, Pilar moved to Florida and brought her international perspective to the United States. One year later, she founded Santamaria Designs. She believes that each client's ultimate happiness while enjoying their beautiful spaces comes from the perfect balance of positive energy - so that each room she decorates brings joy to the eye and to the heart. The company has since completed hundreds of decorating and creative remodeling projects, winning recognition nationally and internationally. In addition to these accolades, Pilar is most proud of the feedback she has received personally from her clients - the individuals and families whose homes she has transformed into the living vision of their dreams.
Thirty years ago, Pilar took a course in Feng Shui and has been infusing her designs with these principles ever since. Now, she has seen the world coming to embrace these ancient philosophies and their contemporary design applications - and now she is pleased to be featuring dedicated Feng Shui services, with Feng Shui Master, Michelle Luongo. Thanks to Pilar's unique international perspective, Santamaria Designs is a singular choice for Feng Shui Interior Design in South Florida.
