The duo met after Carroll opened a candle manufacturing business, Granny Bee’s Candles, in 1999. Greeney was one of her first customers, and he would share her candles with his design clients. When Greeney decided to open his own design business in 2019, he invited her on board. Carroll said she knew the business would be successful because of Greeney’s talent.
“We don’t lose clients,” Carroll said. “We make friendships with them that are just timeless. It’s just really a neat thing.”
Manor Interiors offers a full suite of interior design services, from furniture selection to custom drapery and bedding. It also operates a retail store in Southlake Town Square.
Greeney calls Manor Interiors a boutique with a curated selection of pieces. It is a small company that works with other small companies to bring clients unique pieces, Carroll said. That is in comparison to big box stores that usually buy and stock bestsellers, Greeney said.
“We take a lot of pride in our product,” he said.
Although they are able to decorate in any style, Carroll said Greeney excels at transitioning one style into another.
In Southlake, clients often want to make an Old World-style home more modern and on-trend, Greeney said. What makes Manor Interiors successful, he said, is that he makes an effort to listen to clients and ask questions to figure out what they really want.
Greeney follows the same steps for every project, Carroll said. After Greeney and a client plan out the project together, the client leaves during the time it takes to unpack furniture and accessories and redo the home.
“We want this to be a happy time for them,” Carroll said. “So we’re going to do all the work in the background so that they don’t have to feel those extra pressures and stressors.”
