an INTERIOR DESIGN STUDIO
by HTX Design Guy
Growing up there was always that one house, maybe that one house was yours—but, that house had that one room that NO ONE dare to enter and was off limits most of the time. That one room that was used once or twice a year when company came over—or, when a visiting family member was stopping by for a second on their way to the airport. What was the point of that room? What is the point of having a space and not being able to use it, or better yet enjoy it? You can still have that “one” room, but how about making it an actual room in which you can live in and utilize? That’s what we do. We design spaces for everyday living.
Love of Art & Design, naturally!
My affinity for all things design comes naturally. My family has a long artistic history. As a child, I was surrounded by some form of art. I would tag along with my seamstress grandmother to the fabric store where we would spend hours searching for the perfect fabric for one of her many clients.
As for my love for color and my discriminating eye for quality, I credit my mother. I unknowingly built my knowledge of color and pattern by observing her getting ready for work. A self-proclaimed “fashionista”, she was known for mixing pattern and color. As for quality, she was all about purchasing items that were made from the best fabrics available, made well and made to last.
My father and aunts were all musically gifted artists, all were either professionally trained operatic singers or pianists. Even though I LOVE MUSIC, I can’t play an instrument or carry a tune to save my life. Instead my family’s artistic lineage continues to live on through me by way of the visual arts.
Encouraged to take traditional art classes early on taught me how to express my creativity: pencil to pad, charcoal to paper, brush to canvas and hands to clay. The design classes I experienced later deepened my love for art, while further developing my growth on the principles of design.
This lifelong passion for all things design has allowed me to create spaces where I can maximize style without sacrificing comfort, creating a feeling of practical, yet livable luxury.

I have had the pleasure of working with HTX Design Guy a few times and have continually been impressed by his knowledge and comportment. He is a consummate professional with a keen eye for design.
One of our collaborations transformed a few rooms for a newly divorced client needing a fresh start. I was present for preliminary conversations and later involved with the install. HTX Design Guy listened to the client’s needs (including nonverbal cues) and almost effortlessly transformed her rooms into the oasis she desired. Intentional placement and personalization shifted the entire energy of her home. From planning to completion, HTX Design Guy respected her budget with considerate suggestions and flexibility.
I thoroughly appreciate HTX Design Guy’s concise, timely communication as well as his solid acumen In design. I look forward to working with him again very soon.
Eric effectively listened and heard what I was envisioned for an idea of a gentleman’s parlor and half-bath. He took these words and completely transformed the spaces that blew me away. He is thoughtful in his design approach, careful to visualize my desires.
