When we discovered floral designer, Twyla Rochelle, we knew instantly we needed her on The Branch design team.Twyla’s combination of being a hard worker and the passion she has for her work, makes her one talented lady.From her previous jobs of planning events in Vegas at venues like Caesars Palace and The Cosmopolitan, to traveling the coast of California as a wedding floral designer – she is nothing short of a go-getter!
This floral designer also has her own Austin, Texas based floral design studio – Remi + Gold.
Favorite Memory at The Branch?
My favorite memory at the Branch always consists of way too much coffee and designing late into the night with some of Dallas’ most talented floral designers. Debby is truly one of the most inspirational designers in the industry and takes so much pride in her craft as she should! I love the energy that she ignites into our late night design sessions and even though it’s much harder work than most people would ever expect the reward is so BIG! Getting to see the designs come to life is my favorite part of working at the Branch!
How did you get into floral design?
I always loved playing in my grandma’s garden and grew up in a small farming town so I always appreciated nature and beauty! I was 17 and in college when I first decided to intern for an event designer and just got hooked! I moved to Las Vegas and later Los Angeles to pursue my career as an event planner and designer and then moved to Texas to take on a role as the lead Floral Designer for an event-planning firm. I now call Austin home and am lucky to be in a career that gives me so much passion!
Where do you find inspiration?
Like most designers, I find myself being inspired by my surroundings! I travel for work quite a bit so if I’m in Arizona I get inspired by the desert, when I’m in California or Florida I draw inspiration from the coast, when I’m in New York I gain inspiration from walking the streets and taking in all the different cultures within the city 🙂
Tell me about your own company, Remi + Gold?
Remi & Gold is my floral design studio located in Austin, Texas! After almost a decade of working towards the goal of having my own studio it finally came to fruition last year! It’s my pride and joy because I get to work with a large range of clients and alongside some really incredible vendors within the industry in Austin.
This is a tough question. Can we break up into seasons 😉 I guess if I would have to choose one it would be the Peony.
What do you do to relax?
I rarely get to relax so when I do I kind of go all out! Most of the time this consists of a spa day complete with a much needed massage, a matinee movie, and always coffee 😉
What’s one thing we might be surprised to learn about you?
My first language is German so my English suffers a tad from time to time!
