Twist Interior Design provides a comprehensive experience for our clientele: refined design solutions, organization and logistics, and sound business practices. Collaboration is integral. By expressing the personality of the client while respecting the architect’s vision and the contractor’s craft, we not only achieve great results, we make getting there as enjoyable as living there.
The soul of your home finds expression in the Conceptual Design phase. We begin by listening to your preferences and goals to strategically embark on the design selections.
Falling into step with the design team to thoroughly understand the architectural intent means the layers and nuances of the design solutions we develop with you remain true to the spirit of the project. It’s a highly interactive and energetic process of generating ideas for your project’s unique design challenges.
Design Development captures the energy and ideas generated in the Conceptual Design phase and brings them to life. It requires the skillful application of many design elements – color, form, function, finish, comfort, a timeless sense of style – into a unified whole. It all starts with educational and professional expertise to understand you and how you want to live in your new environment.
The project budget and schedule are the guideposts we use to navigate the Design Development process. With a million moving parts on large projects, and hundreds on smaller ones, it takes an organized team to seamlessly integrate the design details into a buildable project. That requires precise and effective communication via specifications, accurate cost estimates for furnishings and fixtures, and being a reliable partner to the construction team during the building process.
For projects that include both construction and furnishings, it’s during this phase we run a parallel track on furnishings selections. The Estimating and Proposal process enables us to seamlessly manufacture and install the decorative lighting, rugs, carpet, sofas, tables, window treatments, wall coverings, art and accessories to complete our work.
Most clients are surprised by the number of decisions to be made when moving through a decorating, remodeling, or new construction project. Ensuring that these decisions are fully integrated and executed in the Quality Control phase allows the construction and fabrication processes to run smoothly.
The Room Finish Schedule contains all the specifications contractors need to bid on and construct complex projects. They’re prepared by our team to itemize each decision made along the way. Moderate and small projects can use abbreviated forms of these tools to accomplish the same goals.
