Valeria Lopes and her team of talented professionals curate high-end furniture and interior designs for Miami's most luxurious apartments and homes.
An award-winning designer, Valeria Lopes began her career in Brazil as an architect, designing luxury residences. After moving to South Florida in 1998, she developed an affinity for interior design.
Valeria soon emerged as one of Miami’s top interior designers, notorious for her cutting-edge taste, versatility and exceptional knowledge of the industry.
“I breathe interior design 24 hours a day,” she said. “I strive to implement the client’s vision and infuse it with harmony and functionality.”
She is also one of the featured top interior designers in the recently launched Design House 2013 showcase at Artefacto
— which also happens to be a Brazilian company. From unexpected pops of color to repurposing traditional pieces of furniture, this year the trend is all about reinventing with bold design.
A common theme in her designs is ORNARE
products throughout the kitchens
, which sometimes cost close to $100,000.
Valeria said her clients desire a certain level of elegance and accessibility in their homes — and the brand delivers every time. ORNARE has showrooms all over Brazil and in the Miami Design District.
Valeria recently completed some phenomenal projects in Brickell, Miami Beach and Sunny Isles Beach. Check out the photos below to see some of her amazing work.
