When Carla Royder first started CARLA ROYDER DESIGNS & CO in 2001, she never dreamed her business would grow to become the multi-million-dollar interior design firm it is today.
Starting a business was an easy decision for someone with the passion, drive and entrepreneurial spirit of Carla Royder. Often described as “fun, driven & the ability to light up a room”, Carla brings personality and attention to detail in every project – setting her brand & her team’s expertise apart from competitors. “Her unique design choices always exceed her client’s expectations,” says Oscar Lupiba, a fellow industry professional who has seen some of the most luxurious homes in San Antonio and across the Texas Hill Country. Carla and her team are passionate about the CARLA ROYDER DESIGNS brand & incorporate their unique and creative personalities into every aspect of their work.
“With each and every Client, we want to tell a story. About who they are, where they have been, and where they want to go. Every home should not look the same. We’re not just buying furniture,” says Carla. “We’re creating a luxury lifestyle that embodies everything that our Clients have worked to achieve. I love seeing the look on a Client’s face when they’re seeing their home furnished for the first time and it’s beyond anything they could have imagined. That’s the reward for me. For my team. That’s why we love what we do.”
With a full-time staff and a new Studio Showroom in the heart of San Antonio’s interior design industry’s trade area off of the 281 corridor, Carla Royder and her team are busier than ever. Clientele now extends beyond Residential Interior Design and includes Design Services for Custom Home Builders as well as Commercial Businesses. “A lot of our business comes from Client referrals which is very meaningful to us as a business, because this means our Clients are pleased with the work we do and they continue to come back and refer us to others”, says Studio Director Nina Shokrian. With impeccable taste and a passion for entertaining, Clients relationships often turn into long term friendships and often describe Carla as someone they want to continue to get to know and stay in touch with – long past a project is finished.
Carla’s relentless creative spirit is always thinking about what’s ahead. So what’s next for CARLA ROYDER DESIGNS? The business is now offering additional services – Concierge Services for Clients who travel often as well as a Lifestyle & Social Services (Event Planning, etc). “We’re thrilled about all the ways we’re able to provide our Clients luxury services. We help our Clients embrace a lifestyle so it’s more than just designing their personal home. It’s about cultivating a luxury lifestyle that includes entertaining, wining & dining with friends, hosting special events, setting the scene for every occasion in a Client’s life & home. That’s where our business is headed and we’re so excited about what’s to come,” says Carla.
