Diva by Design helps you answer these questions and more.

We do all the shopping so you can use your free time for other things.

We narrow down the choices and show you what will look best in your home. We base this on what you like, what you don’t like, the architecture of your home, your lifestyle and budget.

We put it all together in one place so you can visualize how it will all look together.



This service begins with your Discovery Call and your scheduled two hour Design Work Session.  We need to see your property site or floor plans 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.

You can also add 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.

With our Materials Selection Service, you have everything you need in one place before work starts which saves you time. You feel confident that you’ve made the right choices which saves you money.

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….”

Denise O., Owasso, Oklahoma

“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.”
