These three fundamental concepts - Interior Design, Psychology, and Principles - form the bedrock of my approach to creating thoughtfully designed spaces that not only meet your aesthetic preferences but also serve your practical needs.




From paint colors to lighting, and etc. interior designers are experts in choosing items that promote comfort and relaxation. The most important element of interior design would be a functional space. Functional space acts as the base of the entire interior design. Therefore, it is essential that the user and designer both are well aware of the space availability and purpose of each individual space. Let color, form, space, texture, pattern, line, and light be your guide through the world of interior design.




Psychology of Interior Design: How Decor Affects Your Emotions at Home. It’s easy to become happier at home! … By using the psychology of interior design, you can easily become more comfortable in your home. Small changes to colors, layout, and fabrics can easily improve your mood and evoke positive feelings.


Maya's Design Project.002


There are twelve basic principles of design: contrast, balance, emphasis, proportion, hierarchy, repetition, rhythm, pattern, white space, movement, variety, and unity. These principles work together to create visually appealing and functional designs that make sense to users.

“Maya took the time to get to know my taste”

I had a delightful shopping experience working with Maya Moghadam. Maya took the time to get to know my taste and my end goals for the rooms I was decorating. She was very patient throughout the process and helped me select great pieces.


“Many thanks, Maya!”

We needed help finding some chairs for our new home. Maya Moghadam listened to what we were looking for and the ways and the rooms in which we envisioned using them. There are lots of things to consider, and based on what we wanted, Maya guided us through finding the right chairs and fabrics for our home. We are grateful for her expertise and particularly for her evident pleasure in working with us. Many thanks, Maya!


“It was a fantastic experience.”

I had to furnish an entire office after everything was damaged by water from pipes breaking after the winter storm. I had to get the office back up and in business in less than a month. I had a consultation with Maya and she made sure I found all the furniture I needed for the office and made sure the things we had to order were in by my deadline. She was very creative in finding items that tied the office together. It was a fantastic experience.


“Maya is a good listener”

Maya listened to our ideas and offered her expert opinion, which allowed us to create a look for our new home that far exceeded our expectations. She stayed within our budget and patiently provided feedback and alternatives when we found it difficult to be decisive. Maya is a good listener, pays attention to clients’ style/preferences, and this made our house furnishing experience pleasant and simple. We will definitely be back to seek Maya’s professional advise.


“She turned our imagination to reality!”

I would like to recommend MAYA as an interior designer. She was really helpful to select our gorgeous furnitures based on our description. She turned our imagination to reality! Maya is committed and cares about the customers. Thank you MAYA!


“She’s extremely pleasant and knowledgeable”

Maya was terrific. She connected with the representative and the manufacturer for us; we were replacing worn cushions on a favorite sofa that we purchased several years ago. Maya kept me informed every step of the way as we looked at options and completed our order. She’s extremely pleasant and knowledgeable and reflects well on Louis Shanks. You’re lucky to have her, and we will ask for her when we’re looking at future purchases.


“such a pleasure to work with.”

Maya was our interior designer and was so helpful. She is very knowledgeable about all the furniture designers, very attentive as to what we were looking for in style and quality and such a pleasure to work with. Deena Horseshoe Bay, TX


“Maya is FANTASTIC to work with!”

Maya is FANTASTIC to work with! She really got a feeling for my taste and what I was looking for and found beautiful options to choose from! Looking forward to more purchases in the future.


“extremely helpful, friendly and patient”

Maya was extremely helpful, friendly and patient with us as what we wanted kept changing. She offered us many options and kept thinking outside the box and we ended up purchasing something we didn’t even have on our radar when we walked in. She’s great!
