ABOUT DWAYNE BERGMANN INTERIORS

Prepare to express yourself.

At Dwayne Bergmann Interiors, our design team of conceptual artists listens. And then, we listen some more. Because our designs are as unique as you are, we won’t go to work until we know you, your values, the things that make you happy, and the ways you use your living space.

The Dwayne Bergmann team along with the introduction of Dwayne Bergmann Interiors, offers a full range of conception-to-completion services – architecture, building and visionary interior design – whether you are planning a new home from the ground up, perfecting what you already have or searching for just the right finishing touches.

We guide every client through a visioning process that begins with a conversation. It’s what sets us apart from others.

The result is a dynamic living environment that captures how you feel, how you live in every detail, from the monumental to the minutia. Every element, every accent is meaningful. In other words, it’s you, it’s special.

Please call us at (239) 344-7455 and let’s get the conversation started.

Conceptual Artist/Designer

Inspired and stimulated by art, nature and the visual curiosities of both the everyday and the extraordinary, Dwayne Bergmann has been expressing his artistic side in home design for the past decade, breathing new life into outdated spaces.

“I chose interior design as a career because it provides me with the opportunity to be a part of an industry that is constantly evolving and changing, where no two days are alike. Interior design requires much more than a good design. It is strategic planning, scheduling, coordinating and effective communication with your clients, vendors, builders, and project managers. It is my responsibility to take the clients ideas and needs to create a vision and plan of execution that results in a beautiful and functional design. When a designer changes someone’s environment it changes their perspective and that is a powerful privilege.”
