Since founding her eponymous full service interior design firm, Mariana d’Orey Veiga has formed a portfolio of elegant, bespoke interiors rooted in her personal philosophy of “living life well.” Each project is based upon a close partnership with her clients that invites collaboration and connection, resulting in design solutions uniquely tailored to satisfy every need and want.

The Rio de Janeiro-born designer melds the timeless elegance of traditional luxury with contemporary patterns, overlain textures, and bold color to create spaces that embody both aesthetic richness and comfort. Keen attention to finishes and furnishings allows MDV to craft interiors that are both functional and tailored — luxury that is equally livable and refined.

A current resident of New York City, Veiga credits the city’s boundless opportunity and cultural diversity with inspiring her creativity and fostering her technical skills. Since completing a Dual Degree in Liberal Arts and Interior Design at The New School, she continues to take advantage of specialized courses in upholstery, wood working, ceramics, and art history.

For Veiga, the difference between a good space and great space is understanding that while perfection lies in the details, personality emerges from the flaws. She believes this is what makes a house a home.

Current projects include a Bedford, NY farm, a Madison avenue gut renovation, Three CPW residences, and two Tribeca homes. Although based in Manhattan, Mariana splits her time between Ny, South Florida and Rio de Janeiro.
