About Us

Twyla Gurlea | Founder and Designer

Twyla Gurlea is a gifted and passionate interior designer who transforms architectural spaces of all sizes and purposes into extraordinarily pleasing and functional interiors and exteriors. Committed, highly-skilled and goal-oriented, Twyla guides her clients through the entire process - from concept design to installation and staging - with grace, sensitivity and an unerring eye for color, style and quality.

Born with an innate gift for color and composition, Twyla has honed her skills through instruction and certification from the top talents and institutions in interior design and color strategy; these include the late Frank Mahnke, Camp Chroma, the International Association of Color Consultants/Designers and the Heritage School of Interior Design. Through this, she has become proficient with the most cutting-edge design tools (Virtual Reality, NODE+Chroma, Adobe Illustrator, AutoCAD, SketchUp, Photoshop and InDesign), and she employs them to create singular, lovely spaces.

Twyla brings this considerable design experience, broad perspective and extensive contacts in the field to each project – be it a multi-million-dollar residential whole-home design, the interior of a commercial space catering to numerous vendors or a single-room remodel.

Charming, culturally-savvy, focused and driven, Twyla not only provides her clients with excellent vision and planning, she is also more than willing to take the lead throughout the entire process. Twyla’s services include:

  • Obtaining bids
  • Obtaining permits
