Meet Lauren and Christa Drescher of Studio Curate in Manhattan Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren and Christa Drescher.

Lauren and Christa, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
We are a Mother & daughter team originally from Manhattan Beach.

The idea grew out of our passion for interior design and love for curating cocktails combining both to create aesthetically pleasing spaces and memorable moments.

Studio Curate evolved! We’re an interior design duo on a mission to beautify spaces. We believe that form & function go hand-in-hand, that spaces should be inviting and inspiring, and that curation is critical.

Has it been a smooth road?
Having both grown up in the South Bay, creating a company to cater to our client’s needs has been fairly easy being that we’re both so familiar with the space and know a lot of locals between the two of us.

Balance is always a struggle, the days just seem to go by so fast, and being a mother and grandmother of an outgoing energetic seven years old amongst other things, has taught us what to prioritize and where our focuses should be. We’re always moving and getting things done, whether it’s for our clients or in our own home! Having a clean and orderly home makes daily work less stressful and easier to manage.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Studio Curate is a lifestyle, and we focus on three different things.

“Life Styling” AKA Interior Design. We’re here to curate your home to create the lifestyle you strive for. Our duo mother, daughter team is at your disposal to curate your space so that not only does it cater to your style, but creates organized simplicity to your everyday life, wants and needs.

Our Life Styling menu includes: Home Staging, Feng Shui (using the items you already have in your home but making it feel new again), Fresca (a seasonal swap), Airbnb + Better (putting your home on Airbnb, we will make it Airbnb worthy), Al Natural (go green inside and out).

Cocktail Curation, a curated cocktail service we offer that includes duo bartenders to bring everything bar and party related to your event so that you can enjoy and focus on your guests. Our service includes a curated cocktail menu that is created based on the party theme, everything bar related: vintage glassware, bar accessories + bar, and the cocktails of course! If you’re interested in serving food, we work with an award-winning chef who can do the catering for you! Not having a party or event and want to have a fun night with your friends? The chef + duo bartenders can bring a cooking class with cocktails to you!

Studio Curate, an online boutique and studio in Old Torrance that carries all things CBD (tinctures, lotion, vapes, gummies), vintage jewelry, graphic tees, candles, furniture, art, and more!

Studio Curate being a mother and daughter duo has set us apart from other companies because we have formed a business out of our passion projects. We are both creative and very organized, our goal is to help mentor and create seamless at home lifestyles for others who might not have the time or passion. That’s why we’re here!

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
We’ve found that a lot of businesses don’t always need a location, having access to apps and the internet on our smart devices has made it so that Brick and Mortars are not necessarily a necessity.
