Behind our excellent customer service, exquisite designs, and conscientious installations are our talented team of seasoned design professionals.
Luxury interior decorators in every sense, Marisa and Luisa have designed some of the most refined homes in York Region and in neighbouring towns, and they are regularly considered on the “shortlist” for significant whole home design and renovation projects in the area.
In a time where nearly all retail showrooms are providing cookie-cutter solutions, Lumar Interior’s extensive network of to-the-trade vendors is both rare and valuable to upscale homeowners. And, in an economy of supply chain issues and unpredictable performance by the trades, their three decades of experience has cemented reliable relations that ensure that projects are efficiently and seamlessly implemented with the highest quality.
With a unique focus on high-quality custom finishes and furnishings, Lumar Interiors delivers superior attention to detail to each project.
Lumar’s award-winning work has been extensively published in major national and local interior design publications including HGTV, Our Homes, Canadian Home Trends, Houzz, Style at Home, and Canadian House and Home. Their work has also been featured as best Richmond Hill interior decorators in the Key Interior Designers directory.
They have also been honoured to participate in several high-end decorator show homes where they’ve been given the opportunity to showcase their innate talent in creating designs that fuse the fresh excitement of the now with the comforting impact of a timeless aesthetic.
Lumar Interiors has earned a privileged position in the design industry for their mastery of whole house redesigns.
Marisa’s love for design began in her childhood while bussing through the toney side of Toronto and admiring all the beautiful old homes. She also had an insatiable appetite for collecting and gazing through the stylish world of fashion and interiors splashed across the pages of Vogue, Glamour, and Architectural Digest magazines. Her young eyes were raptured by beauty in all forms, most notably fashion and interiors, gardens, and architecture.
Marisa earned a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Toronto, and later pursued a second degree in Management Accounting. Halfway through that degree, she teamed up with Luisa to start Lumar Interiors – she never looked back.
Marisa believes that your home should be a collection of things that you love, things that tell your story. It should be a beautiful backdrop to life’s special moments and milestones; a place to host precious family gatherings, and to serve as a private sanctuary.
What Marisa brings to Lumar Interiors is not just her passion for design and her business sense, but her integrity and commitment to excellence. She believes in classic design that withstands the test of time both in quality and style, which not only delivers heightened value to her clients but also drives her commitment to environmental sustainablity. Marisa has a three decade track record of exceeding clients’ expectations.
Some of Luisa’s early childhood memories consisted of exploring the textile shops on Toronto’s St. Clair Avenue with her mother. She recalls being mesmerized by the amount of bolts of colourful fabrics. Yet, it might have been when a woman showed up at her home with samples of velvets and cording for their living room custom drapery that the seed of being a professional interior decorator was planted.
After earning a Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto, a Diploma in Applied Research Techniques from Sheridan College, and partaking in three years of research in the social services sector, she caught the entrepreneurial bug from her elder siblings and partnered with Marisa to pursue her passion for home interior design.
Luisa’s approach to design is inspired by the architecture and culture of great European cities, and is equally influenced by the beauty of life’s subtle moments, including the birds chirping in the morning, the sun setting over the ocean, and dining on fine food with her beloved family. She sees a home as a place to feel rooted, to belong in, to call one’s own – a place to relax and unwind.
Luisa unites a love for well-designed rooms with an aptitude for bringing together colours, fabrics, and furnishings to achieve the remarkable results that her clients desire. She avidly stays on top of industry trends and new products, which translates into her artfully utilizing the latest products and methods to achieve her clients’ dream homes.
