Valerie Alek Cassady met her dear friend, Yvonne Stocker Rathgeb, when their boys were in preschool together. The pair soon discovered their mutual talent and passion for interior decorating and as their families grew and the kids went off to school, the two designing women formed Alek Stocker Interiors in 2011.

            There have been a few changes over the years, like business location and the departure of Yvonne from the partnership (she remains a consultant and is still a lifelong friend), but the heart of the enterprise is the same: Creating spaces where loved ones feel welcomed and cherished.

            Alek Stocker Interiors now employs four designers and offers custom decorating services to homeowners throughout the Houston area, everything from a simple family room makeover to a whole house remodel. Our goal is to provide clients with warm and inviting spaces that reflect the personality of their homes through a wide range of decorating services:

 “It is amazing how Alek Stocker Interiors transformed our house – and they were so easy to work with. Not sure which I like best – the beautiful rug and sectional sofa in our family room, or the bedding, nightstands, and lamps that turned our bedroom into a peaceful retreat. Interesting window treatments in 3 rooms has added that extra touch that makes our house a home. What would we have done without Alek Stocker?” — Lynda


“Thank you so much for all you have done to make my house truly a home. It amazes me how quickly you are able to choose paint colors, visualize window treatments and furniture placement that totally transform a room. You truly have a gift. I have received many compliments on my home and will continue to recommend Alek Stocker Interiors to anyone looking for a designer.” — Denise


“I have had the privilege of working with Alek Stockers Interior for over a year. They helped us with a remodel of our last home and now we are working on decorating our new home. They work well with us and have a great eye for color, style and creativity. We are starting from scratch on the new home and I could not be happier with the results so far. We still have a lot more to accomplish in the future and I look forward to working with them both.” — Debbie
