Tinsel House Studio
Tinsel House Studio is a versatile commercial and residential design firm with a penchant for breathing new life into older properties offering interior design throughout Truckee-Lake Tahoe, California.
Tinsel House Studio is a one-gal show owned and operated by expert interior design consultant and staging specialist, Raegan Twisselmann. Whether designing a classic Tahoe Gambrel, mountain modern new construction or a quintessential lake front, Raegan has an affinity for creating impressive and whimsical spaces on any budget.
Raegan offers much more than safe, basic, elementary designs. She specializes in creating eclectic spaces that balance modern luxuries with a vintage, nostalgic twist. She particularly enjoys refreshing longer-lived properties while keeping the vintage vibe alive. Raegan treats each space as if it were her own and even incorporates one-of-a-kind décor she’s collected over the years into her work – you won’t find cookie-cutter/furniture store design in a Tinsel House property.
From color consultations and space planning, to partial and full property revival, Raegan works exclusively with a few select clients at a time to deliver their vision while providing their spaces a second (or third) chance in a cost-effective way. She believes life is too short to not love the spaces you live, work, unplug and entertain in. Her key to unique design is keeping it simple with the basic pieces while not taking things too seriously with the decor. Color & texture are a must in order to keep the proper balance while maintaining interest.
Whether designing for residential or commercial, modern or vintage, Tinsel House Studio always begins with a complimentary walk-through. During the initial consultation, Raegan will assess each property’s potential including layout, lighting, views, structures and materials.
Style Quiz & Consultation
Take the complimentary Tinsel House Studio style quiz before scheduling your initial project design consultation. Raegan will meet you on-site to view the property and discuss your vision.
Raegan will create a custom proposal for your review including design suggestions for the property and the estimated time it will take to produce your desired space.
Proposal is approved + contract is signed. Design time begins as soon as the project deposit has been received.
Using the preferences outlined in the Style Quiz and information gathered during the initial property walkthrough, Raegan expertly crafts individualized design plans and shops for needed items; all while diligently maintaining the project timeline and budget.
Once all design items have been purchased and the property has been prepared, Tinsel House Studio will deliver, arrange, install and style each component of your property’s design plan.
Photo Shoot & Enjoy
Before leaving you to enjoy your newly designed space, and with your approval, Raegan will work around your schedule to coordinate a professional photo shoot. Tinsel House Studio appreciates the opportunity to showcase their designs and always accommodates owner availability.
Thank you for choosing Tinsel House Studio for your next design project. We are thrilled to get to work but first, we’d like to ask that you tell us a bit about yourself. Please take our Style Quiz and let us know your preferred colors, textures and overall design inspiration. Raegan will use your responses during the initial space walkthrough to create the perfect design to suit your unique needs.
Raegan grew up in the central coast of California and earned her bachelor’s degree in art and design from San Diego State University. After college, her degree led her to focus on hospitality design as she worked for a leading soft goods design and manufacturing company.
Raegan and her husband have personally renovated, built and designed several of their family’s homes over the years and have a deep understanding of budget and time management, the selection process and keeping trade contractors on deadline.
As the onetime owner of a vintage second home and a recent full-time Truckee resident, Raegan knows how to renovate and furnish a property to transform it into a vacation rental or year-round family residence. As a wife, momma and business owner, she knows exactly how to blend functionality into her designs, so beautiful spaces also meet family and business needs.
