Q What is your studio design aesthetic like?
A Our studio has a very earthy and inspiring vibe. There are photographs on every wall, African mud cloths piled high, straw chairs in our design room....the furniture and feel of the studio is very Twine & Twig. We always have music on (and food being delivered) to help us forage through long days, but the office is an extension of our home style so we always feel comfortable there.
Q Does it get tricky being both sisters and business partners?
A Of course! But, at the end of the day we are sisters and it is amazing to share this journey TOGETHER!
Q Did you always know you wanted to start a business together?
A From an early age we were both in art classes that helped to cultivate an artistic outlet for us. We have always loved bouncing creative ideas off of each other. We did not plan to start a company at the exact timing of Twine & Twig but there was always the possibility there that we would collaborate. We are a very close family so it is great that Elizabeth & I can have brainstorming meeting while our husbands catch up over a beer and our kids chase each other on scooters!
Q What advice would you have for a new interior designer starting out?
A Be unique and original! Draw inspiration from many places, but do not copy. Your authenticity reveals your integrity. Also, you have to love what you do - if the passion is not there then the endless work hours of a start-up might be too overwhelming.
