Materials Selection Service

Our Materials Selection Service is for those who are in the beginning phase of a remodel or new build home.  To save you time and money, we narrow down the choices based on your personal style, budget, lifestyle, and preferences.

Each project is different and will require a different level of service.  We want to ensure that the materials you choose will be right for you and will flow together with what is already in the home. In the case of  a new build, we can begin from the outside with roofing and exterior materials to the inside with paint colors, flooring, and hardware that will give you a cohesive look from the beginning.




This service begins with a Discovery Call and a scheduled two hour Design Work Session.  We need to see the site or floor plans, either by video call or in person, to get a feel for what you need and want.  We provide ideas, recommendations, and advice for your project.  We will discuss everything your project will include such as, layouts, materials, budget, timeline, priorities, and how we work. (You can read more about our complete Interior Design Process here.)

Once you decide on a direction, we will begin sourcing and gathering samples for your approval.  Then we will schedule meetings at the trade showrooms or bring the samples to you.  As soon as everything is approved, you will receive a comprehensive list of all paint colors, tile, flooring, lighting, hardware, etc. for the interior and exterior of your home. You may share this list with your contractor for ordering the materials.  You will also receive digital concept boards to illustrate how all materials and finishes go together to create a cohesive look for your home. The cost for this service begins at $1575 for a 3000 sq. ft. home. Additional square footage is $250 per room.

If you would like, we can make regular site visits once or twice a week to ensure that the correct materials are being installed and to answer any questions your builder may have.  We can meet together on site to make decisions or discuss change orders. This service is optional and is billed in advance for a minimum of five one hour visits starting at $625. Each site visit is a minimum of one hour.

What They Say

Working with Christina Rodriguez was a wonderful experience. From the beginning of the design process, Christina helped us create a pet friendly, warm and very comfortable living area. Her knowledge of period furniture and resources for some custom made furniture, fabrics and paint combined to give us the look we desired!

Alma R., Harlingen, Texas

Christina did an amazing job helping me put a special touch on our new home. She put together a 3D computer rendering of my living room based upon the design of my home and my style. Let her stretch your imagination…think outside of the box, you will be surprised. She is so very easy to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to put some style into their home. She will be coming back….”

“I engaged Diva by Design to partially furnish a second home. Christina considered style preference, budget, and timing in putting together a solid plan. Modifications were made with ease and the final setup exceeded all expectations. Most impressive was her eye for complimentary design. I would recommend her services to those looking for incremental assistance as well as comprehensive turnkey services.”

Chris S., Palm Valley, Texas

“I recommend everything about Christina! I’ll be the first to admit that I am particular and stubborn! Christina nailed my project – Transitional style entryway and living room space in an open concept home. She was also extremely patient, professional, and flexible with time and budget. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.”
