Meet our Interior Designer, Leslie!

Hi everyone! My name is Leslie Archilla and I'm so happy to be part of the Su Casa Interior Design team!

I was born in LA but grew up in Guatemala. I went to college there and earned my BA in Interior Designer. I pursued a career in architecture and did that for a couple of years but I decided I was ready to go out there in the Design world. I had great projects as a designer in Guatemala and built a nice little portfolio. In 2009 I decided that, as a single woman, it was a good time to do some traveling. So, I visited a couple of countries in Europe since I wanted to see some of those beautiful buildings and decors that I had seen in my History of Art classes. I moved to the USA back in 2010 thinking that I would be here just for a couple of years and then go back to Guatemala. My brother used to live in Baltimore and I moved in with him. He took me for a walk around Fells Point to see this beautiful neighborhood. I spotted Su Casa right away and applied for a job. It has since been the only job I’ve had since I moved here. Nick, the owner, had just come back from Guatemala and he said it was a sign. He took a chance on me and now I’ve been with Su Casa for 10 years!

I love working for Su Casa, they have given me the opportunity to go to a lot of furniture shows, help with the design of the different furniture vignettes in the stores in Maryland, designing for customers and a little bit of furniture buying which I love! I go between stores, spending the majority of my time in our Ellicott City store.

Now I have built my little family in Maryland and I love it!
