What Clients are Saying:

“Diana began our process by fully understanding our needs, how we use our outdoor space, what is working and what isn’t. Our wish is long and she was quickly able to determine how we could take a large project and break it into small managable pieces. She has a great eye and a sense for what will work given our many contraints.”

Thanks again!

    Hi Diana,

    What an awesome website. You have included a wealth of information. It would be difficult to choose a favorite topic. You have some beautiful photos showing just how important landscape is to the curb appeal of a home. You also do a great job showing different ways to use plants and natural resources. Well done.

    Hi Diana,

    Room Twisters is a business I started in April 2008, to help homeowners sell their homes for the best price possible. For years I have helped family and friends stage or decorate their homes for fun. After retiring from my previous occupation, I decided I wanted to do something that I really enjoy that would be benefical to others and by helping people use what they already own to create a beautiful, fresh, new look to their homes at an affordable price gives me great satisfaction.

    I would like to thank you for your interest in my business and if you know of anyone in need of assistance with their home they can contact me at;

    Best regards,

    Becky Tessau
