Galiani Design Group

Maria Galiani

As a young girl, Maria Galiani recalls visiting an architect’s office in her native North Carolina to see a full-scale model of her aunt’s future residence. “Months later,” she recalls, “we walked into their beautiful new home. The whole process fascinated me.” This first encounter was one of many that inspired Galiani to earn a BA in interior design from Meredith College in Raleigh.

Today, as principal of Galiani Design Group, she has more than 30 years of experience in the field. She and her staff of three break the design process down into small steps, working alongside clients to incorporate their desired aesthetic while balancing the elements of light, color, texture and pattern. “We also keep in mind the architecture and bones of a home,” she explains.

Galiani continues to hone her craft, finding fresh inspiration on every project. “My relationship-based approach, a love of architectural details and my eye-opening travels guide me as I work with clients of various backgrounds,” she reflects. “The ultimate goal is to create a memorable and livable experience for all my clients.”
