DC Design House – Renderings
|Rendering by Maria Morga, www.MorgaStudio.com. McLean Guestroom Design by Margery Wedderburn Interiors, LLC
I have to talk for awhile about Maria Morga, the artist and renderer of the Butler’s Pantry perspective. She is ultra talented. Take a look at this rendering she did for me of a guest bedroom we were designing in McLean, Virginia. Isn’t her work so beautiful? One wonders if an actual room can look as pretty as her renderings!
What this means for the designer is that you can give her all the elements that are going to be in a room, along with the floor plan, furniture, fabrics and details, and she will create the vision that is in the designer’s head. Most designers are exceptional at visualizing — that is their job. But to convey that to the client can sometimes be a difficult task, if the clients are not able to visualize very well.
With Maria, it is a complete collaboration with the designer. We talk with her constantly by phone, email and text to ensure that everything is perfectly communicated so she can do her job.
Here is a concept sketch she did for Jana Abel Interiors, and from this concept sketch Maria can then add the color. When Maria has done these for me, I print them out and my 6-year-old daughter has a blast coloring them in herself!!

So from her preliminary sketches of the room, you can see that there is still a lot of work to do in terms of the color palette, details, etc. But we all need to see this first sketch so we are all on the same page. She comes up with these quite quickly. Perspective drawings are incredibly tough to do!!

This rendering above was a lovely room that the designer Victoria Sanchez designed for last year’s DC Design House. Maria brings such warmth to the renderings. You just think of words like “lovely”, “Warm” and “Harmonious.”

And, of course, she just finished our rendering for the DC Design House 2015 Butler’s Pantry, shown above, which I had to show you again because she did such a great job of it!!
