Meet Our Designers

Maria Sergio
Principal Designer

Maria has the ground-up training and experience - stretching from construction, to interior design, even to the acquisition of fine art and accessories – that make her an extremely well-rounded designer and ensure each client’s project will be completed seamlessly and beautifully from start to finish. With 12 years of diversified high end design experience collaborating with commercial and residential clients in construction, interior design and fine arts, she consistently brings her projects in, on-budget and on-time. Her special ability to meticulously fine tune the finishes of her clients’ kitchens and baths delivers a seemingly curated end-product. Yet Maria’s clients do not turn to her just for her design expertise; they find her enthusiasm and passion for the process most compelling.


“I’d been a little nervous moving from the big house my family grew up in into a small apartment. Needless to say, the kitchen really needed help and now that it’s done, I just love it. The decorative tile and surface elements Maria and I selected have made it a great source of pride for me. I must confess that I even miss the collaborative process in working with her. Maria seemed to intuitively understand the look I was going for – like she was reading my mind. She has an extremely discerning eye and high taste level. Together with her delightful personality and can-do attitude, I honestly enjoyed every moment. I do not exaggerate when I say that I look forward to recommending Maria to all of my friends.” Suzanne Yarnell – North Shore Towers

“Maria provides the perfect combination of a keen eye for design, great attention to detail and exceptional customer service. Together we designed my kitchen and small half bath.

What a pleasure she was to work with!” Rebecca Brandman – East Hills

"I just wanted to thank you for all the incredible design help with my house. Four bathrooms, kitchen floor and backsplash. I was blown away with how you took my ideas and helped me complete my house the way I wanted it to look. Amazing! Since when I started, I was all over the place. My husband wants to say a special thank you to you for staying within our budget. The way you mixed expensive handmade tiles with other complementary tiles without compromising the look or the budget was remarkable. I can also say that the installer was impressed with your hand drawings for the installation. They were so detailed that there was no misunderstanding when it came to installing the tiles. I had a lot on my plate building a house from the ground up and you were definitely the best I dealt with in all aspects. Thank you, thank you again!!!" Agnes Kirschner - East Williston, NY

Building a new house in the Hamptons was a daunting task and having to create tile designs for a kitchen and 3 bathrooms was overwhelming! We didn¹t know where to startŠuntil we met Jessica. She listened to our ideas and gave us wonderful direction for just the designer look we wanted. Her sense of color, design and attention to detail is remarkable and her knowledge of the products is outstanding. Her professionalism, dedication, and patience made our project exciting and enjoyable. Each room turned out to be beyond beautiful and unique while keeping with the flow of the house. They are just what we had hoped for and are a true reflection of ourselves. We receive many, many compliments and we have highly recommended our family and friends to work with Jessica. We look forward to working with Jessica again in the future." Barbara - Sag Harbor, NY
