Maria Morales

The way Maria Morales sees it, design isn’t just a career choice, it’s a way of life. Passionate about the intersection of artistry and customer service, Maria elevates client spaces every day with precision, creativity, and above all: compassion.

Born and raised in Venezuela, Maria studied Architecture at the University of Zulia before migrating to the U.S. in search of a better future. Soon after relocating, she switched her major to Interior Design, a field that perfectly fuses her penchant for math, art, and people. Once she found her career path, she also found her place at Slate Design & Remodel, where she started as an intern before working her way up to design assistant. Today, she harnesses all her skills and experiences as a critical member of the team to translate each unique client concept into reality.

When she’s not designing standout spaces, you can find Maria channeling her inner artist and connecting with new people every chance she gets. Maria enjoys dancing, drawing, painting, and playing in a band with her family. She also bartends a few nights a week and creates custom artwork under the M Arts & Designs brand, a business she launched during the pandemic.
