Christy Drew

Founder – President – Interior Designer

After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from Texas Christian University, Christy entered the multi-faceted design world working on numerous projects from hospitality and restaurants to residential interiors. Her favorite though, is residential design where she immerses herself into each Client’s individual lifestyle and personality, becoming so well versed that she truly creates a physical expression of her client through architectural detailing, material selections, furnishings and overall design aesthetic. Her unique, diverse and genuine style is evident in an array of projects from contemporary marble homes in Israel, relaxing island sanctuaries, western ranches, and Texas Hill Country historical remodels, to mountain retreats and family homes in Dallas.

Stephanie Wachel

Interior Designer

Stephanie Wachel is passionate about people and design. During her studies at the University of North Texas, she soon realized her initial major of psychology was overshadowed by her deep interest and love of residential interior design. Having switched majors, she began searching for an opportunity to work for a high end residential firm in Dallas. Here, Stephanie experienced a broad range of projects from new construction to renovations where she offered her particular insight to a varied list of residential clients.

Hannah Matthew

Interior Designer

While working to earn her degree at the University of North Texas, Hannah laid the foundation for her design career by working for a traditional designer. Observing and learning from established Dallas designers, Hannah has gained a true appreciation for sophisticated, timeless, and detailed design. At Arveaux, she has been given the opportunity to demonstrate her detail -oriented skillset while refining her technical skillset through expansive, full-service projects that are tailored to accommodate each client’s highly personal and unique design aspirations. Hannah’s absolute favorite part of being an interior designer, aside from the daily expression of creativity, is personally connecting and building relationships that are sustained beyond the scope of a project with clients and vendors alike.

Kerri Martinez

Director of Operations

Kerri loves working with all financial aspects of our interior design business, an area she has always found appealing. Having many years of experience in the multi-family home renovation industry, Kerri focus’ on a smooth functioning operation, keeping overhead low, and thus keeping our client’s costs low as well. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Texas at Dallas, Kerri is dedicated to making sure all internal processes of the business are running efficiently, allowing both the Client and the Designer to focus solely on design - and have fun doing it! The financial aspect of each project is, most often, equally as important as the design aspect. No matter the size, each project deserves, and each client expects, the best value for their hard-earned dollar, we specialize in this every single day.
