A lot has been happening in the world of Casa Vilora Interiors lately! We are in the process of developing the space for our new design studio and design center.
It has always been my dream to branch out into being a store owner, and with a lot of prayer and perseverance, we are well on our way. The store is due to officially open for business the first week of August, but there is still a lot of work left to be done.
Although we have been focused in the Katy and surrounding areas since we opened for business in February of 2008, we decided that moving into the Museum District will expand our clientele and reach a new demographic. It is a very exciting time for us and we cannot wait for everyone to see the finished product.
The space is about 1100 square feet and was formerly a waxing and facial studio, with a lot of tiny little rooms. We have blown out all the walls and we are now preparing it for an open concept space that will feature separate room vignettes, a custom drapery idea area and a design center where we will showcase flooring, cabinets, countertops and tile accents.
We can now cater to remodelers, custom home builders and consumers who need help selecting finishes for their projects. We will also have some light retail featuring products like pillows, throws, candles and other accents available for sale. We are in talks with some of the finest suppliers and installers in Houston to be a part of our team.
Our clients who are renovating can now enjoy a one stop shopping experience from start to finish and everything in between. They can now come into our studio and see finished room vignettes to inspire them, and have all our resources available to them on the spot. We will of course continue our “shop at home” for clients who prefer to make selections in the comfort of their own homes.
Some of the things you can expect once we open will be art events. My goal is to try to help up-and-coming local artists feature their work either through displaying them in the store, or holding events where clients can meet the artists and purchase their pieces. We would also like to expand the reach of our free design workshops to community groups and students through internships, and other community outreach.
We are located in the Chelsea Market at 4617 Montrose Blvd, Suite C145 Houston TX 77006. Our phone number remains 281-751-7552
This is somewhat what the space looks like now. it really was a lot worse if you can believe that

We are very excited about this new venture. We will keep you up-to-date on the progress, so please be on the lookout!
