EC Design

an experienced and talented group of design consultants available to assist you in projects both large and small.

EC Design is a Houston-based, service-driven interior design firm with client satisfaction as our first priority. Our team excels at creating unique and beautiful interior design for residential, commercial, model home, and staging projects. We have the years of experience and the expertise that enable our clients to accomplish their vision.

How We Work?

Our design process begins with our team listening to our clients’ specific and unique needs and wants. Questions such as how will the space be used, who will occupy the space, what are the aesthetics, what functionality needs to be achieved, and what are the economic goals are only a few that are asked in our initial meeting with prospective clients whether they are home builders, corporate executives, realtors, or homeowners. 

The EC Design team then begins to conceptualize the information received and formulates a design schematic for presentation and initial proposal to our client. While we have designed and managed hundreds of projects, our approach to a new project is without any pre-conceived ideas, nor cookie-cutter type elements in our design. We are not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Our interior design, whether large or small projects, is specialized and customized to each client’s unique style and needs. 

Once all parties have agreed on the project vision and budget, our design team finalizes a custom proposal and presentation that includes the scope, timelines and schedules.

Our Interior Design Services

EC Design offers complete turn-key project management for our clients such as home builders needing a showcase home fully furnished and accessorized, or a homeowner embarking on new construction, needing help with updating their interiors or doing a complete re-model.

Model Home Merchandising

EC Design provides leading home builders beautifully designed, fully furnished and accessorized model homes, as well as certain key room vignette models. Our skilled and talented team of degreed interior designers has successfully created unique styles and designs for forty-plus model homes annually. We approach each model home project with the goal of creating exceptional interiors that help home builders and investors showcase and increase the marketability of their properties while maximizing their investment.

Residential Design

Transforming interior spaces that fulfills the design vision and functionality wishes of each client's unique living style and environment is the primary goal of EC Design. We believe a truly customized design begins by asking the right questions and listening to the answers. This crucial phase builds the foundation for successful projects. 

Thorough space planning is the next important foundational step in the design process. Once the design style, layout, and budget have been determined, the team at EC Design is dedicated to making the design vision a beautiful reality. The exciting stage of making selections from colors, finishes, and fixtures to furniture, art, and accessories makes the project come to life. EC Design’s assistance and guidance in this vital phase minimizes uncertainty and maximizes time and value. 

Whether the project is one room, entire home, new build or remodel, EC Design will always approach each project with the highest level of professionalism, effort, and attention to detail. Our communication and personal attention throughout the entire project, along with our professional experience and expertise, have proven successful in tailoring design for our residential clients. 

What Our Customers Say...

Erin has been fabulous to work with! From the moment I got a nearly immediate response from a Facebook message I sent confirming they were open to the public. Erin has been fantastic! She is very professional, helpful and FUN! Furniture shopping should be enjoyable, and Erin definitely makes it a great experience. Thank you for
all of your help with my living and dining room makeover. I can’t wait to get everything and see my rooms go from blah, brown and boring to bright and beautiful!

Stefani Harris

The window treatments and installation far exceeded my expectations. It is fabulous!

Pam Murray

We worked with Cynthia (on drapery) on multiple occasions and we are always extremely impressed with her customer service and ease of working through the project. She helps us budget out what is realistic for each specific project. We look forward to more projects with her in the future!

Anna Sandberg

My husband LOVES the dining room! He keeps going in there and turning on the lights and saying “man I love these curtains!” After the holidays, can you come back and let’s work on the living room and upstairs game room? He likes the curtains so much in the dining and was wondering if we could use that in the living. I told him it might be too much of a good thing, but would let you decide when you come out. Just put my on your schedule after the new year and let me know! Thank you again! We just love you!

Marilyn Goff

Thank you SO much…they look awesome. Yes, you are a perfectionist and I love it!!!

We enjoy collaborating on our projects when we are looking for something unique in their beautiful showroom with features the latest in accessories, 2 art, and furnishings.

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how pleased I am with how everything turned out at my house. It was a rough start, but the items Mary and Valerie picked turned out great. I picked up my last item (for now) last week and it now looks complete. I had a small family gathering over the holidays and received lots of compliments! I still have two rooms left and I’m looking forward to working with your team again. Thanks a lot.


Love the atmosphere and helpfulness of staff! They are super accommodating to me as a local designer and my clients when I send them in. A Houston gem for sure!
