About Maria Wilkinson

1.) How long have you been with CITY? 
I’ve been with CITY for 11 years and have been offering free design services for 3 years.

2.) Favorite collection at CITY and why? 
My favorite collection at City Furniture is Bernhardt’s Ocean Drive. This collection incorporates textures inspired by nature - particularly the calming waves of the sea - adding a unique and appealing dimension to any living space. 

Incorporating elements of nature in interior design is a powerful way to create spaces that resonate emotionally and aesthetically. The Bernhardt Ocean Drive collection does just that, making it a wonderful choice for anyone who wishes to bring the beauty and tranquility of the sea into their homes. 


3.) What/who inspires you? 

I find inspiration in Friedrich Nietzsche's quote, "Make your life a 'work of art.'” Nietzsche encourages us to approach life with the same creativity and passion that an artist brings to their work. Just as an artist carefully selects colors, shapes, and textures to create a masterpiece, we should make deliberate choices and craft a life that is meaningful and fulfilling. 


4.) Why are you passionate about design? 
The field of design is ever-evolving. I enjoy learning and staying up-to-date with new trends, technologies, and techniques and design offers a dynamic and constantly changing environment. 


5.) Favorite mood board?

Casa Mancora below.


6.) Where are you from? 

I’m originally from Argentina but have been living in this country for over 20 years.


7.) Where do you get your design inspiration from?  

I find myself drawing inspiration from a harmonious blend of nature and the ever-evolving world of fashion. This combination provides me with a rich palette of influences to create beautiful and inspiring interiors.  

8.) What design trends are you currently excited about?  

I am excited about the trend of incorporating natural elements into interior design. This design trend remains appealing because it connects us to nature, provides comfort, and offers a timeless and enduring aesthetic. It's a trend that celebrates the beauty of natural materials and their ability to create inviting and harmonious living environments. 


9.) Do you have a favorite project? If so, what makes it special to you?  

One of my favorite projects is Casa Mancora.

Designing rental units such as Airbnb properties is highly rewarding but also requires to remain competitive in the vacation rental market. You'll need to stay up-to-date with design trends and incorporate them into your units to impact a guest's experience and create a memorable and positive impression, leading to favorable reviews, repeat bookings, and ultimately, a more profitable business.
