“Denise helped me create flow in my home by collaborating with me to select a paint color palette for my large, open floor plan house. She was very mindful of working with my existing décor and keeping in mind potential resale. She facilitated the placement of my furniture, art, and accessories throughout the entire house! We even shopped together for additional furniture and decor pieces, fabric, drapery hardware, etc. That was the most fun!”
~ April, East Fishkill, NY
“Denise did an exceptional job working with my daughter to create a fabulous design that combined her love of superheroes and primary colors with my desire for a pretty, girly room.
Denise also assisted in cabinet design and fabric treatments in my laundry/mudroom, and coordinating tile, décor, and window treatments for my master bath remodel.
We enjoyed working with Denise and can’t wait to do it again!”
~ Laurie, Hopewell Junction, NY
“Our house sat on the market for a year before we decided to try Staging. Denise helped us to see that our furnishings and accessories needed to be rearranged and refreshed to attract the best buyers. Our house sold three weeks after we hired DeniseGiannaDesigns to stage it. We are convinced that had we staged earlier, we would have sold our house much sooner and probably for more money.”
~ Mary Jane, Pawling, NY
“Several years ago, we finished our basement and added a big TV and bar. However, no one would ever use it because it felt like a dungeon. After Denise designed our recently remodeled kitchen, we asked her if she could help with the basement.
It was amazing to watch – she looked around, made some notes, recommended we order two area rugs and, in one day, came in with two assistants and transformed the place! She rearranged the furnishings, moving things away from walls and creating multiple seating areas; she added both task and ambient lighting to the room, using lamps we already had and adding fun, funky string lights. She recommended moving the kids’ video console and games to the big TV in the basement area and showed us that we could have a useful family space as well as an occasional party room. She was able to use what I already had in the house to fix it up and make it warm and comfortable. It was utterly amazing how she transformed a place no one wanted to use into a warm inviting environment!”
~ Carla, Goshen, NY
“We knew we wanted a bigger, more expansive kitchen with room for family and entertaining. We knew we wanted an elegant, yet accessible “feel” for the space. What we didn’t know was where or HOW to get those things.
Denise Gianna knew EXACTLY what we wanted and how to give it to us! Our new kitchen/great room is the hub of our home and feels elegant, warm, and inviting. We could not be happier.”
~ Helene, Town of Newburgh, NY
“I recommend staging to 95% of my sellers: it packages your home for the most likely buyer and consistently cuts down the time a house is on the market as well as low-ball offers. Denise Gianna Designs has provided many of my clients with quick, cost efficient and effective staging solutions.”
~ Lucille, Real Estate Agent, Fishkill, NY
“My husband and I hired Denise to redecorate our TV room which was a challenge due to the odd size and layout. Denise was great! She spent time learning what our individual “tastes” were as far as colors, & styles and then managed to combine our styles into a cohesive theme.
Denise is very efficient, knowledgeable, creative, and patient! A year or two after that project was completed, our house suffered major damage from snow and ice. We had to put on a new roof, and renovate the dining room, kitchen, and sunroom. I called Denise in a panic, and she helped in so many ways, including color schemes, product lines, floor plans, organizing tips, etc.
We have received so many compliments on the transformation. Denise was so amazingly helpful. She is easy to work with and offers ideas and opinions without being ‘pushy.’ She also answers emails/phone calls in a very timely manner. We thought her fee was reasonable and that she earned every penny of it!”
~ Gascar & Grace, Somers, NY
“Denise was able to prepare my home to be sold. Her ability with color and staging was impeccable. I was also impressed with her promptness in returning calls and coming to my home. I would highly recommend her and would use her services again.”
~ Anne, Cold Spring, NY
“Finally! Everything is arranged in ways that I love, but was never able to conceive of myself! Denise saw possibilities in things I had on hand that I never would have visualized on my own!”
~ Rachel, Beacon, NY
“Denise immediately “got” my style and kept me to my budget, which was imperative! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great designer that is down-to-earth and fun to work with. I plan to hire her again in the future.”
~ Jessica & Michael, Beacon, NY
“I thought Denise would tell me I needed to purchase new things, but instead I learned that I actually needed to edit! Now the things I see every day are the things that truly make me happy.”
~ Maria, Garrison, NY
“I hired this company to consult with me about staging my house for sale. The ideas were creative, market sensitive and cost me very little to execute.”
~ Michael & Barrett, Beacon, NY
“Denise gave me the confidence to take my treasured things out of storage and decorate with them. I always loved my stuff but never loved my house before. Now I love the way I feel in my “new” space!”
~ Emma, Beacon, NY
