Maria Ilharco de Moura


More than twenty years of experience and knowledge in all spheres of interior architecture and decoration: from the maximizing of space, choice of materials, textures and colours to the layout of furniture, the fusion of all the different elements, the best type of lighting, creation of atmospheres, etc.

My approach is simultaneously aesthetic and functional but with keen cost awareness. I am used to working with all types of budget and seek to optimize project costs so as to save both time and money for my clients while also achieving aims.
