Today we’d like to introduce you to Alyce Lopez.
Alyce, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
In 2013 my husband and I purchased a 1950’s ranch style home in its original state. Our little rambler needed some major TLC. However, we saw the potential and signed our lives away with a 6-month-old and a 2-year-old in tow.
We spent countless hours and pennies renovating our humble abode and documented the process on social media. My business emerged organically during the process and the rest is history!
Has it been a smooth road?
Being an entrepreneur involves a certain level of risk and fear. I quickly learned that transitioning from a stay at home mom to a business owner was quite the adjustment. Being in my early 30’s, this transition came at a time when I was already seeking to discover more about myself and my natural gifts and abilities.
I think we often forget that even the most successful business owners have their share of doubts and insecurities. I spent countless hours doubting and comparing myself to others. It took surrounding myself with strong female entrepreneurs to accept and celebrate my achievements. You will become who you surround yourself with, so choose your tribe wisely.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into The True House story. Tell us more about the business.
The True House specializes in full-service interior design in south San Diego. I am proud to be a part of the Chula Vista community and serve homeowners within my own city.
Most of our clients are busy families that are looking for a beautiful and functional space. Our tagline is “REAL life. REAL design.” We pride ourselves on designing spaces that create a greater sense of community and are well loved and lived in. Durable fabrics, functional layouts and custom furnishings help us create a space that is personalized to each clients’ wants and needs.
We are unique in the sense that our business serves south San Diego and we offer a variety of services from hourly consulting to full service.
Where do you see your industry going over the next 5-10 years? Any big shifts, changes, trends, etc?
The industry of interior design is growing rapidly. A home is the largest financial investment most people will ever make and people are making their homes a priority.
Social media platforms, TV and print have inspired homeowners to dream and take on new home renovations. Interior design has become more accessible to the public which has helped grow the industry in a new way.
I believe this industry will continue to grow in the next 5-10 years with the already emerging e-design and retail store in-house design teams.
