Zulma Puhl

Interior Designer

Zulma is a dedicated Interior Designer who enjoys every moment of creating turnkey designs that truly captivate, influence, and inspire. Driven by intense creative passion, Zulma has an extensive 15+ year background involving all things color harmonization, space planning, matching spaces with personalities, and blending authenticity with practicality. Even more, enjoys leveraging that artistic dynamicity to ensure TriVistaUSA Design + Build clients succeed as they take on this new, exciting chapter of transforming their houses into homes.

Prior to joining the TriVistaUSA Design + Build team, Zulma grew up in Rockville, MD and built a long list of experiences that have led to her rooted stance in the designing space. To date, Zulma holds a BA in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Washington and simultaneously began her career as a designer. Some of those lateral roles she’s held for the last 15+ years include (but are not limited to) an Architectural Assistant, a Kitchen and Bath Designer, and a full-scale Interior Designer/Consultant for several renowned firms such as Poggenpohl. Today, Zulma is not only respected for being well versed in the design field and treating each home like her own, but also for ensuring clients feel 100% confident as they navigate through this elating yet sometimes scary phase of their lives.

From kitchen/bath color consultations to full residential redesigns, Zulma wholeheartedly enjoys helping others spearhead their aesthetic visions and delivering them the 5-star services (and results) they innately deserve. Overall, Zulma has a genuine passion for this creative field and demonstrates that by delivering beautiful yet functional designs that represent unique clients’ characteristics both intrinsically and within budget. That, coupled with her perfectionist nature, FF&E expertise, and track record of developing rooms clients actually want to spend time in, is what can solidify your confidence that your own design initiatives will not just be met, but exceeded from start to finish.

Zulma loves what she does and is highly passionate about cultivating designs that clients can be proud of. But on the occasions she is not working or staying updated on the interior trends, Zulma enjoys thrifting at flea markets and pawn shops, unleashing her intellectual curiosity to learn/challenge herself with something new, and spending time with her beautiful 3-year-old daughter and her two cats.
