Does it serve a purpose? Does it make the room come alive? These are the questions that run through Christine Beck’s mind when she is searching for the right pieces to furnish a customer’s home.
As the owner of Decor to Your Door in Highland Village, Beck said she spends her days creating a curated, coordinated interior design for clients’ homes so they do not end up with a jumble of styles that do not mesh well.
“Interior design services is literally an insurance policy that makes sure clients are not going to have a bunch of stuff that they can’t use because they purchased it and it just didn’t work.”
Beck said the clients she is most successful with are the ones who put their trust in her.
“My favorite clients are the ones that don’t know what they want,” she said. “A lot of times clients think they need to fall in love with every single thing they buy, but it should be a thought process of, ‘Is this item what is best for the room?’”
Beck said she has been an interior designer for more than a decade. She went to college for interior design and upon gradating opened a store in Addison.
“I had that store through 9/11,” she said. “After that I started doing remodeling, and I didn’t really love that but did it because of necessity.”
In January 2013, Beck said she had enough of the gritty construction work and wanted to get back to interior design.
“I really still had a love for having a store, so I thought, ‘Where else would I want to put a store?’” And I decided to go back to my roots where I grew up, which is the Highland Village-Lewisville area.”
Now, six years later, Beck said she is in the process of opening a second store in California in the Anaheim-Newport Beach area.
“A lot of clients thought we were going to open in Frisco,” she said. “And we just might in the future.”
