THOUGHTS ON GOOD DESIGN BLOG

Michelle C. ~ Ossining, NY

“Denise did my window treatments on the entire first floor of my house (family room, eat in, kitchen, laundry, formal living room and office). The fabric options she guided me through look great, and she was very quick to bring alternatives to the table when our original choices were no longer available. Her recommendations for styles of treatments were dead-on and my rooms look amazing now!”
