Marie Burgess – Interior Designer

After ten years experience in residential, commercial and retail design with award-winning architecture firm Smart Design Studio, Marie recently joined Decus as Senior Designer. A love of high-end residential design makes Decus the perfect fit for her.

Marie is devoted to designing interior spaces that are simple in function, making everyday living seem effortless. She has a deep appreciation of nature, seeking to use materials honestly to create spaces that calm the soul and inspire the spirit. She also loves gardening and often designs interiors that echo the outdoors. A passion for Australian art peppers Marie’s weekends with art auctions, leaving her walls commandeered by works by Ray Crooke, Norman Lindsey and Aboriginal artist Minnie Pwerle. Travel is one of Marie’s favorite pastimes; she believes the home is the perfect gallery for our life experiences, whether hanging a hand-painted framed Indonesian batik on the wall, or featuring an Egyptian stone sculpture on a side table.
