Portrait of Santa Fe interior designer Debbie DeMarais on patio of historic adobe home


Hi! I'm Debbie DeMarais.

I was mentioned as a local New Mexico expert on the Redfin blog!. Check out the article I was featured in: The 10 Best Places to Live in New Mexico in 2024 | Redfin

And I help people fall in love with a home.


As an interior designer, I bring fresh ideas to create exactly the home my clients dream of. As a home stager, I use proven techniques that lead prospective buyers to see the beauty and potential each home has to offer.  


After leaving corporate America, I returned to school to pursue a lifelong passion for design. Once there, I received awards for my design work and graduated with honors. Today, I am certified in five disciplines: interior design, home staging, aging in place, architectural design, and color consultation. 


Blending these skills with a strong design aesthetic, I’ve helped dozens of Santa Fe homeowners refresh their kitchens, renew their powder rooms, redesign their entertaining spaces, and more. Drawing on years of experience applying aging in place design principles, I’ve also helped Santa Feans improve the accessibility and safety within their homes, allowing many to live in their homes longer.  


I provide home staging services in the Santa Fe real estate market with home values ranging from $150k to more than $3M. Applying the principles of aesthetics and flow, I’ve staged these homes to sell faster, often netting offers within a week of listing. Showhomes I've staged have won “best of” awards in the Hacienda Parade of Homes many years running.  


I know each home and each client is unique, which is why my designs are tailored to each project. My goal is creating emotional connections between people and the spaces they call home.

Let's talk about your next home project. . .

Preparing contemporary Santa Fe home for open house
Debbie has staged homes for several of my clients. My customers and I love working with her! Her sense of design is impeccable. Best of all, she makes magic using primarily the things they already have.
I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to stage a home for sale or who simply wants to make their home more beautiful.
