Our team has won Houzz awards for Service and Design for 6 consecutive years; we’ve won the 2019 Quebecois House of the Year Award; we’ve been featured in publications including Canadian Home Trends, Maison et Demeure, and more; and we’ve grown our social media following to over 40,000 (and counting!)

She loves to tell a good story! Self-proclaimed “bon vivant,” she has an appreciation for the finer things in life and loves to live in the moment.

After working in fashion for the past 10 years and expanding her studies in marketing and public relations, she was intuitively led into the world of design. Ever since her travels to Japan, she’s been fascinated by feng shui and how energy flows throughout a home. She’s realized that putting intention into our space can elevate our physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological health. She believes that your home is your sanctuary and the environment you live in is a reflection of the life you are creating.

When Lara is not storytelling, her interests include sound healing, spending time with her dog, George, or discovering natural wines at Montreal’s latest hotspots.

Her love for knowledge pushed her to return to school to pursue a degree in Event Planning. Her final project consisted in raising money for the Autistic Children of Ste Justine Hospital. Her team managed to raise over $10,000 for this wonderful cause.

Maria’s talent for envisioning a space before production, for decorating and making any room come to life in a unique fashion – cozy and comfy, yet sleek and stylish – is one she is constantly honing. Her involvement in investment properties with her husband was where she really developed her skills and love for design.

She recently joined Lux Decor where she is assisting with in studio consults and putting her passion to practice by helping with client decor needs. She could not be happier to finally be a part of the Lux Decor Team!
