Nice to meet you! I'm Maria Ristau, & I am glad you're here. I would love to help shape the house you've been dreaming. My specialty is kitchen and bath design and I assist throughout the home custom tailoring spaces for a functional and beautiful outcome.
My work in the design for your remodel or new house is in the capacity of as much or as little assistance as you'd like whether we meet once to share ideas or partner through the full process with detailed floor plans, cabinet layouts & and material & fixtures selections.
Education// Bachelor of Science in Interior Design & Housing Studies: Oregon State University, 2005. Summa Cum Laude.
Reviews// Please check out my Houzz listing for reviews, or get in touch with me & I'll help you connect with a previous client.
About me - Helping shape your home is my passion, and I do other things too: At the present I am learning to sail an Aquarius 23 mono hull and (much less successfully) attempting to learn French. I love dancing West Coast Swing (coincidentally I met my husband Jud at dance class!) and am a two-time "Dancing with the Rogue Valley Stars" partner to a local star (2011 & 2012 seasons) for the Sparrow Clubs fundraiser as well as a former instructor at the Evergreen Ballroom. Tropical plants continually accumulate in my house-- I even harvested a home grown pineapple here in Oregon! Learning new things, chasing goals, sharing experiences with friends & family and traveling are four things I am always trying to do, and I have never met a beach or a pizza I didn't like!
