The story of
We are a family with design on the brain, art in our hearts, and wonder in our souls. We aim to hold up a magnifying glass to those day-to-day moments that are often overlooked and appreciate how beautifully simple each and every one of those moments is.
We believe that design is a holistic experience, and with a healthy collaboration between the client and designer, there is no limit to the beauty created. We strongly believe that design should be accessible, stripped of its label, and brought to its most functional, beautiful, comfortable, and peaceful purpose. Our goal is to make the design process flow rewarding and have our projects reach their highest possible potential.
About the founder
Fueled by inspiration all around her, Maria is determined to slow down and appreciate the small moments that fill up a day. Originally from Ecuador, she moved to New York City as a young girl. The city indulged her love of design in the best way possible. She spent many years learning alongside visionary designers and working in high-end retail within the fashion and furniture industry.
When Maria and her family relocated to Shenzhen, China, in 2013, wemademoments was born out of their determination to share the memories they encountered along the way. The inspiration that fuels Maria most comes from color, nature, music, art, texture, travel, different cultures and family life.
Her sharp design skills and multicultural approach to interiors made her a highly sought-after interior designer in one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. She spent seven years in China working on dynamic projects from concept to completion for clients from around the globe.
Back in her beloved New York City, Maria, her husband, and their two children can be found anywhere that art is.
