Meet Our Interior Design Consultant, Carla Royder

IMG_5504 (2)

As you can imagine, building dream homes requires a strong team of professionals. When it comes to interiors, we rely on interior designer, Carla Royder, and her own team (Renee Golobay, in particular) at Carla Royder Designs to inspire, inform and guide our customers so that they achieve everything they want within their budget.

Carla, who opened her business in 2003, has a wide range of customers with homes ranging from $500 thousand to five million dollars. Her company is a full-service firm, meaning they also completely furnish homes when the client requests it.

Think of Carla as a liaison that helps streamline communications between builders and customers. “The selection process can be overwhelming,” Carla pointed out. “We help narrow down their choices so that it’s not overwhelming.”

The Selection Process

First, we provide Carla with a budget. Before you go in to pick out what you want, she recommends sifting through home magazines and pouring over Pinterest to help give her team an idea of the style and look that you’re wanting. The clearer the vision you have of your new dream home, the better they can help you create it. That’s true for us as well.

“My biggest philosophy is I like to get to know the client and who they are. I want their personality to show through in their house because a home should say who you are. I think people should be able to walk into your home and be able to feel your personality,” she explained.

The best part is the showroom! Carla has samples of everything you could ever want and more, from tile to countertops and light fixtures – literally anything and everything you might need in your new home.

This process should be fun, if not easy, but we guarantee Carla’s team does their best to make it feel like a breeze.


No matter how hard we try to avoid trends, it’s nearly impossible. Carla recommends every home get a facelift approximately every five years.

For our customers, she says the trend is leaning towards light colors and clean, crisp interiors and simple tile patterns. She noted that brass tones are also making a comeback.

So what’s the best part of Carla’s job? She tells us, “When the clients are blown away. I absolutely love the big reveal when we pull a room together, and they come home and see it for the first time. Some clients fall to floor and have tears coming out of their eyes. That is super rewarding.”

With Carla and her staff on our team we know the home building experience is definitely a rewarding one! To get started, please call us at 210-494-5400.



Say Hello to Moore Supply of San Antonio


Moore Supply Company is a top distributor of premium plumbing products, such as faucets and fixtures for your bathroom and kitchen needs. They are the supplier that we trust and send our customers to. We recently had a conversation with San Antonio’s showroom manager, David Hevner, and this is what he had to say:

David: “Plumbing hardware is our staple. We always say, ‘from the pipe in the slab to the faucets that you see and everything in between.’ We try to maximize the budget the homeowner gets from their builder so that they get what they want.”

For some, the idea of going to a showroom filled with literally 3,000 different types of faucets might seem a little overwhelming, which is why at Moore Supply they take our budget and then, using a simple computer program, identify your particular style. Based on that information, they show you a modest number of options within that scope, so that you’re in and out within an hour and a half. Dave and his highly-trained staff walk you through things like whether your master shower should have a rainhead spray, body spray or a handheld spray.

David: “We make the selection process very, very easy. People want to touch and feel their faucets because it’s something they use so regularly. We have working faucets and showers in the showroom as well as five working tubs with different options from air to whirlpool to newer designs such as a driftbath and hydrotherapy bath.”

These last two are pretty neat products. The driftbath, as David describes it, makes you feel like you’re laying in a stream. The water moves by you like a current and is extremely relaxing. The hydrotherapy bath creates micro bubbles that is an exciting remedy for people who suffer from eczema or even those who experience dry skin during the winter months.

David also had some nice things to say about us. We are honored to consider him a friend, after so many years of working together to help offer our customers the best quality and service, down to the pipes, as David might say.

David: “Stone Creek really leaves the design options to the homeowners so they build them what they want. With other builders it’s a struggle sometimes between the homeowner and the builder. Stone Creek is completely professional and gives customers real world budgets. It’s very rare that we have to go back and say they’re out of budget. That’s huge for us!”

Visiting David and his stellar staff at Moore Supply is just one perk on the road to a luxury custom-built home by Stone Creek Custom Homes.

Step into Your Dream Home with ProSource

As you get to know all of us at Stone Creek Custom Homes, you’ll also get to meet some of our outstanding vendors and home building partners. We go out of our way to make sure all of the folks we work with are the best of the best in the business, and that includes one of our favorites, ProSource Wholesale Floor Coverings.

ProSource is a trade-only business, meaning they only sell to builders and their clients. Therefore, their builder design center is not open to the general public. Although they only have one showroom in San Antonio, there are 138 locations throughout the U.S., with almost one design center in every city in Texas. We work exclusively with ProSource to find the best flooring options for our customers, including carpet, wood, tile, and even backsplashes for every room in the house.

We sat down with ProSource Account Manager, Amaris Read, to see what she had to say about the work they do and our long-time working relationship.

AMARIS: I work directly with the designers to assist with the selection process. Where our private showrooms stand out is we offer the largest selections for the best prices. You can’t walk into a box store and get service for a whole house selection.

ProSource works directly with our own amazing designer, Carla Royder, who advises our clients based on their individual needs or sometimes sends them straight to the ProSource team for professional assistance.

AMARIS: I love that Stone Creek offers their clients cost on products, so they’re able to get the best value on their flooring selections. They also provide good budgets for their clients to be able to shop here. They really allow them a lot of freedom and liberty in customizing their home, which allows them to expand the selection and quality they get for their dollars. Not a lot of operators work that way.

Like us, ProSource is all about enabling their customers to build their dream homes, literally from the floor up! Call us at 210-494-5400 when you’re ready to take that next important step into a bright future. If you wish to be added to our private email list for our newsletter, please sign up here.
