Well, Maria did it again! Let me start by saying that I’m a returning customer. I hired her back in 2019 to design my dining room, living room and kitchen. I was so happy with her work that I decided to call on her to help me with my outdoor space. I’m so happy I did! She turned my backyard into an oasis. My daughter even said that she feels like she’s living on a resort! The furniture, the décor, all the accents that give your space that extra “oomph”, she did it all! I’ve gotten so many compliments from my neighbors too. Most importantly, my family loves it!

I cannot say enough about Maria. Her taste is impeccable!! She is so easy and fun to work with. She will not disappoint you!

I just wanted to send our sincerest thank you for the beautiful living and dining room you created for us. It is truly beyond our expectations, and it feels surreal that we are living in such a gorgeous space! We have had such a wonderful experience with you all – thank you for being so flexible, communicative, and kind throughout this process. I’m certain we will be reaching out in the future to work with you for other spaces in our home.

I am very happy with how everything looks and the choices you helped me with. Everything I worried about and second-guessed myself on has proved to be OK. This morning, the black cabinet hardware was added and I am so glad you advised me to use black! The pendant lights, the counter tops — all so good. This is the exciting part! Your help was so valuable!

Maria is wonderful. She is professional, works fast, gives you ideas on anything and everything you ask. She is highly socially skilled and extremely likable. Maria knows how to quickly read her customers to provide exactly the right type of consultation.

Maria, absolutely incredible! Your team captured it perfectly, impeccable professional design but still feels like home! You have exceeded all my expectations. I shared a few pictures with the girls and they love it!  Thank you and congratulations!

“I am beyond excited to get the remodeling done thanks to Maria! She helped me pick out the perfect flooring, paint colors, placement of pictures, and mirrors. Also placement of furniture, the style and fabric suggestions! She is very knowledgeable and I completely trust her judgment! I know we will have a family room we are comfortable in, along with a guest room to show off!”

Angie Kolbe

“Maria came to my house for a design consultation & offered lots of ideas that were within my budget. Before that day I was too nervous to invest in new valances & artwork, but her confident suggestions gave me the little nudge I needed. Yesterday my valances were perfectly installed & my husband said, “We should’ve bought these years ago!” Thank you, Maria!”

Meredith Geeseman. Fairfax, VA

“I am beyond speechless with the work done by The L&L Design Team!!! Maria is absolutely AMAZING!!! The level of professionalism and her “eye” for knowing how to turn your room into to a MASTERPIECE is out of this world! I cannot express how happy we are with the work she did for us in our clubhouse. We will treasure this room for years to come! It is breathtaking! She is patient and hands on. She worked with us every step of the way. Her love for design definitely shows in her work. I would recommend her over and over again and she is very “in the loop” with the latest designs. What else can I say…She’s PERFECT!!!”

Jessica Greenfield. Property Manager, Muirfield Woods Apartments

“I cannot describe how happy I am with my living room. It was an empty room and Maria transformed it into a beautiful inviting space. She was oh so very patient with me and my indecisiveness. Thank you so much. Looking forward to many more projects.”

Linda Morais Quintela. Lake Mannassas, Gainseville, VA

“I first found out about Maria through a friend that used her design service to create an inspirational work space and I really liked what I saw.  After meeting with Maria, I knew that she understood my ideas about how I wanted my living room, kitchen and family room to work together since I have an open floor plan.  She was able to immediately pick up on my tastes and present her vision of what she thought would make the space flow.

I found Maria to be a very talented and enthusiastic person that really made this process easy. After she presented her ideas complete with fabric samples, pictures, etc. I was amazed at how well she understood what I would like.  The day I came home to see the placement of all the items I walked into my home and it took my breath away how beautiful everything looked!  The best part is that it incorporated some of the things that I already had and it all came together in such a cohesive way. I can’t say enough great things about Maria and how incredibly helpful she was in turning my home into a place that I absolutely love!”

Valerie Olson

“Thank you so much for helping us design & bring our house together! We love it all! Especially the office! We appreciate all of your hard work & look forward to working with you again!”

“Maria made the process so easy and worked within my budget. She gave me options and ideas that I had not even thought about for my eclectic style. Love the end results. My room is so peaceful and stylish. She did a fantastic job.”

Christy Hopper

“Maria Loveless is amazing at her job. She came to my home & was able to get in my head and figure out exactly my style. My office was a chaotic mess & I hated working in there. I know have lovely, functional pieces that make working in there easy. Maria was also able to save me money by reusing other furniture in my home. I must be honest, I thought having an interior designer come out was going to be something expensive or extravagant…I was WAY wrong. Maria will work with any budget you have and her consultation is FREE. Definitely recommend.”

Carla Valentino. Haymarket, VA

“Maria has helped us to renovate our entire home. We first met her when we remodeled the first floor of our home. She was able to help us design the layout of our kitchen. She effortlessly helped us to choose kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, appliances and fixtures. She tied the whole first floor together with beautiful paint selections. Most recently we remodeled all 3 of our bathrooms upstairs. Maria once again was critical in helping us decide on a design layout, choose bathroom cabinets, and tiles to match. She really has an eye for design and quickly senses what a client likes and dislikes. I constantly receive compliments from friends on the design of my home and would recommend Maria to anyone.”


“I am currently working with Maria on redesigning my bedroom and I plan to have her work with me on other areas of my home. I thoroughly enjoy working with her. She has great decorating ideas! Maria listens carefully to what you want to achieve and she is thoughtful in helping you get the results you want. I like that she is flexible and willing to work with things that you have in your house as well as make suggestions for new items to purchase. She is great at helping you pull together a budget and schedule. She works closely with you to understand what you need within your budget and offers several recommendations to choose from. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.”


Love my new home! My sanctuary! and I owe it all to Maria. As soon as Maria walked in my front door, she immediately had a vision and knew exactly what and how to change. Never in a million years would I have thought of the design on my own! Maria provided many unique suggestions for accessorizing, art work, furniture, mirrors, window treatements, light fixtures and she helped with placement/arrangement of it all… and all to my highest of approval and within my budget… She’s professional, creative, and passionate about her work! She is very helpful and true delight to work with!”

“We love all that you did in our home yesterday! It is beautiful, and well worth the wait!
Again, thank you for everything! I feel so fancy!”

“I do so appreciate working with you; I think I learned some about the design process, though I definitely see the value in having a trained eye and artistic bent, and someone who knows the business! Many thanks for working with me!”

Glenda Christenson

“From design to installation, the L & L Design Team did a meticulous job of redesigning my family room and I could not be happier with the results. Maria has a beautiful eye for putting the right pieces of furniture in to fit your lifestyle. Very happy with her work.”

Kelly Ryan. Vienna, VA

“Maria is amazing! She came to my complete mess of a house and she transformed it into something so beautiful. My house was very traditional in style. We decided to do a total kitchen remodel and the kitchen turned out to be very modern. It did not match the rest of my house. I had to find a way to get a flow going and I was completely lost. Maria came in and she did exactly that.

She asked so many questions about what I was looking for in look and functionality and she came up with an amazing design. We did a complete living room and dining room. We also did décor and some furniture for the kitchen. I have a lot of glass cabinets that I wanted to have something really beautiful inside. The furniture, the fabrics, the artwork and accessories are all beautiful. The paint that she chose tied everything together so nicely. She even made my traditional family room look a little more modern with the décor. 

This has been a wonderful experience. Maria is so easy to work with. I kept going back and forth with some of the artwork and she never made me feel like I was being annoying. In the end, I went with her original pick and I’m so glad I did. Great job, Maria! My husband and kids love it too!!

Sophia Seal. Lake Manassas, Gainesville, VA

“We remodeled our main level and took down 3 walls to modernize the house and make it a more open floor plan. I was struggling to figure out how to furnish the space so that it all flowed. Maria was able to take my explanations and inspiration pictures and turn it into a design that I fell in love with on paper. Once everything was finally in place it turned out even better than I imagined. I LOVE it.

She was also a huge help by giving suggestions when I was making choices during the remodel (paint color, drawer pulls and pendant lights in the in the kitchen,etc). One of her observations regarding the space between 2 of the rooms we were combining. Her observation impacted our decision in the removal of a wall and I’m so happy with our decision.”
