About The Studio

The Decoré team is among the top greater Houston area interior design companies. Since 2010, we have grown in both size and reputation, and we couldn’t be happier. Officially approved by the Better Business Bureau, our priority is understanding the specific needs of each client and applying them throughout the entire design creative process. With a rebranding from the old "Decore & More Design Studio" to better represent the designer behind it all, our company is now known as "Decoré | Gerty Portillo". This transition has only made our company stronger as it presents a clear representation of whom our company represents and the fabulous work of our founder throughout the years. 


What we create is born from a collaboration with each client, which is why we include our clients in each step of the process to ensure that our work is exactly what they had in mind. From a single room to an entire home or even a commercial space, we will address every aspect of what's at hand: architecture, interior design, custom furniture, fabrics, color palettes, and art. The end result is an inspiring space that promotes well-being. Want to transform your space? Give us a call.
