ince 2010, Fresh Twist Studio has specialized in interior design, styling, and custom window treatments. This luxury home design studio provides a total solution for clients to bring their dream homes to life, from ideation to fulfillment. With the opening of its downtown Elmhurst studio in 2018, the team caters to both large and small-scale clients throughout the Midwest. Taking a customer-first approach, this women-led studio has made a commitment to intimately understand the priorities and needs of its clients prior to starting the design process. Betty Brandolino, Founder and Creative Director of Fresh Twist Studio, explains that through an individual and personalized approach “we build very close relationships with our customers. Your home should be an emotional connection that brings you comfort.” Brandolino continues, “this is why we always focus first on the relationship aspect of the project. Understanding a deeper meaning of each client’s desired outcome, helps Fresh Twist turn your house into a home where function meets form.” Fresh Twist Studio offers a variety of packages based on its client’s needs, including new construction, architectural design, interior design, styling, and dedicated custom window treatment options. “Some clients come to us at the very beginning stages of building a home, and we are involved from the onset of architec-

tural drawings, which allows us to bring the technical and creative aspects of design together, while others have moved into a new or existing home and need help furnishing,” Brandolino says. The studio also offers styling services to furbish—and refurbish—your space through direct vendor relationships, constituting a flawless end-to-end design process. Serving also as a storefront for Hunter Douglas window treatments, the studio offers free in-house consultations with its team of certified installers, interior designers, and project managers to handle all aspects of a client’s window project. Fresh Twist Studio prides itself on these personal relationships with both clients and vendors to ensure a first-inclass experience. Brandolino describes her approach as “timeless and classic design with a twist of modern,” bringing unexpected touches to her designs to create spaces as unique as each client. Her portfolio ranges from lake houses and modern high-rises to city brownstones and large, family suburban homes. The design team is often asked by their clients what their favorite items are for the home, so much so, Fresh Twist Studio is launching a curated shoppable page on its website. Stay tuned. Fresh Twist Studio, is located at 132 N. York Street., Elmhurst, 630607-0993, freshtwiststudio.com.
