April Miller opens retail store, Before | After Vintage Modern Atelier, in Houston

HOUSTON, TX – (September 30, 2015) – Houston-born TV reality contestant of The Bachelor, April Miller, brings more than 15 years of design experience to launch her new store, Before | After Vintage Modern Atelier, located at 1022 Wirt Rd, Houston.

Miller, who has traveled the world with her former corporate career, draws inspiration from around the globe as she pursues her true love, design.  Before | After Vintage Modern Atelier is a showroom and warehouse with various Mid-Century modern, Hollywood Regency and eclectic furniture just waiting to be revived and brought into the 21st Century.

““With my clients wanting “one-of-a-kind” furniture and spaces, Before | After can be just the ticket to finding those “offbeat” pieces that can make a place sing.”


“When my clients ask for a Silicon Valley Start-up look or a Bohemian Collaboration space, I start at Before & After for inspiration.” said James O’Neil of Inventure Design, Houston, TX

She has created something new to Houston, an atelier or “workshop” to help designers of all types develop their own look with quality service and fair prices.

“For the hesitant do it yourselfers, with a little bit of coaching, it is easy to take a precious family heirloom or a garage sale find, and turn it into something they’d love to show off at home,” said Miller. “It’s my desire to help people create something stylish and bring a little vintage into everyone’s home.”

Miller earned her Bachelor of Interior Design from FIDER Accredited Texas Tech University. She has worked for a number of nationally recognized architectural/design companies where she focused on large corporate headquarter projects.
