We had the good fortune of connecting with Ginger Curtis and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ginger, how do you think about risk?
I think risk is essential for growth. I have learned over the years that you have to say yes to the things that scare you. Some of the greatest decisions I ever made felt the riskiest. It’s taught me to push past my comfort zone, embrace challenges, and say yes to new opportunities. The risk I have taken is directly related to our success today.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Our design aesthetic is definitely what sets us apart. Our vibe is design-forward, we are always reinventing what is possible. We are never afraid to think outside of the box, in fact, it is what thrills us the most! I am most proud of our abandoned fire station project. We needed a larger space for the design firm and bought a dilapidated building that had sat vacant for years. Truly a diamond in the rough. We turned it into the most magnificent space you could imagine. Exposed rafters, a massive 36′ wall of glass, and a loft that is truly swoon-worthy. We got where we are today by doing the little things well. Taking every opportunity to do something exceptional even if it was the tiniest of details. Anything worth doing well is usually not easy. We used every challenge to help us grow and make us better. If I could tell the works anything ti would be this. We are fiercely passionate about what we do. We obsess over every decision and detail so you don’t have to. We care so much about the clients we partner with an the place they call home. We pour every ounce of energy, talent, and love into the homes we design.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The first stop would be the foot spa for TLC after long travels! Chi Kung Foot Spa is the best! Next, we would head over to our local coffee shop Redefined Coffee in Grapevine Tx. It’s the coolest place in town! Oh yea, we may have designed it!!! haha! After that, we would hit the trails for a walk on the North Electric Trail, in NRH. It’s an amazing trail system that will take you all over North Richland Hills. For dinner, we would head over to Stop and Go Gyros. A hole in the restaurant serving the best Greek food ever! We end the day by going to my favorite movie theater in Southlake, Harkins. Their big screen and popcorn can not be beaten! My husband and I go EVERY Thursday for date night!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I love this question! My 1st year of business was not only overwhelming on every front it was also very lonely. I prayed endlessly and asked God to allow me to build relationships with other like-minded women in my industry who have gone before me. I felt like in so many ways I was doing things the hard way, simply because I did not know what I did not know. I had so many questions and no one to turn to. My 2nd year into the business my prayers were answered. I not only met designers who are talented, and kind, but willing to share what they had learned to help me in my own growth. Today nearly 5 years later they are some of my dearest friends. We get away for an all-girls weekend mastermind trip and share our greatest strategy for growth and leadership. This has been an incredible blessing to me personally and to my business.
