Karen White said she aims for all customers entering Oasis Accents to feel like they are at home.

The feeling of home was White’s goal when she opened the home decor boutique at The Shops at Starwood in Frisco in March 2017. She said she saw a decline in the number of local boutiques when the recession hit in 2008 and decided she wanted to fill the gap.

“I’ve always had a passion for home decorating and interior design,” White said. “And I wanted to bring back that small, quaint boutique.”

Oasis Accents specializes in home accessories and art, from canvas to custom pieces, she said. Canvas art is sourced from mid- to high-end art showrooms throughout the United States, and four local artists create custom and commissioned pieces, she said.

Available decor styles include contemporary, traditional, modern and abstract, White said.

While Oasis Accents has had a few sales associates over the years, White said she is currently a one-woman operation and is thus able to give customers a personal assistance.

“I welcome them and provide the same treatment to everyone,” she said. “From the time we start looking for art to the time it makes it into their home, they’re going to get a high level of customer service and one-on-one support in making sure they find the piece that they ultimately love.”

Business has been booming as customers spend more time in their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, White said. Customers often come into the boutique with various home decorating projects in mind.

“The last few months have been some of the best that we’ve had since we’ve opened,” she said.

Online ordering, curbside pickup and home delivery are available in addition to in-store services, White said.

As the holiday season approaches, White said, an array of gift options are available for purchase, including candles, bookends, photo frames and other small items.

“Even if there’s someone who isn’t interested in decorating their home, we do have a lot of unique gifts for the holidays,” she said.
