About Sigrun Maria, Interior Designer
Sigrun’s professional interior design and fashion footprints traverse the globe in Spain, India, Brazil and Panama. Her projects range from small updates to full commercial interior design. She is fluent in Spanish, Icelandic, English, Portuguese and Emoji. 🙂 Always positive and full of energy, she is well liked and respected in Pedasi by both expats and Panamanians. Her business name is Alma Hus and you can find her work on Facebook and Instagram (see links at bottom of page).
Pueblo Colorido Project
Late in 2016, the town of Pedasi had an initiative to repaint homes and business on the main street and plaza. The town came alive with local and foreign artists contributing not only to paint homes, but beautiful murals. At the center of it all, but totally out of the limelight was Sigrun Maria. When you hear her talk about the project, she says that she only “planted the seed”, but it was the Panamanians, with support of their mayor and local businesses, that really took the idea and made it happen. With Sigrun’s eye for color combinations and the Panamanians and Expats who volunteered side by side, you soon saw the town come alive and really transform into a very cool, tropical beach town. It’s really amazing to see people work together to do something positive!

Transforming Casa 40
Sigrun provided pre-photography design consultation for all of our clients, but this particular home was a “Diamond in the Rough”. We could see the amazing potential with the ocean views and the expansive spaces. Thankfully our client gave us the green light, and off she went to Panama City! If you live in Panama, especially in Pedasi, you know how difficult shopping can be: especially for decor!
The day the furnishings arrived, it was a mad dash to get it all assembled in time for our photo shoot. Sigrun went into overdrive assembling and arranging. She worked all day at a pace a toddler would be jealous of. In the end, we were absolutely amazed at the transformation. Even our world-class photographer was inspired! Costa Pedasi, Casa 40 is now full of happy energy, tropical synergy, and exquisite taste! The lucky future owner can move right in, unpack their suitcases and throw an amazing “Welcome to Panama” party. I can imagine it, and can’t wait for that day. At this price, it should be pretty soon!
