Quote StartDenise Stringer designed the interiors of our new home on Lake Murray. We first met Denise while visiting her home on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The moment we saw her home, we knew that she was the one to help us with the interior design and selections for our new home as her taste in decor was better than any we had ever seen before. Denise was involved from the beginning of the project, working along side with our architect and builder. She assisted us with every step of the building process.... from selecting the tiles, stone and wood flooring, plumbing fixtures, lighting, cabinetry, countertops, paint colors to selecting furniture and accessories. Denise custom designed many aspects of our interior finishes to personalize our home for us such as the patterned walnut and Jerusalem stone floors, a mosaic tile floor pattern for our Master Bath, palm etched shower doors, onyx and iron sconces and chandelier , along with our wine cellar door with a " Y" worked into the metalwork to name a few. Her ability to choose the perfect materials, colors and her attention to detail did not go unnoticed. She made the process a stress-free experience from day one. Denise found it easy to zero in on what we liked and did a fabulous job. All we ever had to say was ' Denise, you pick it and we will love it.' And we do...from the beautiful leathered granite countertops, the gorgeous lighting and furnishings to the breathtaking window treatments. We could thank Denise a million times for the wonderful job she did and it wouldn't be enough. Today, we look in awe at our new home and can say that we are proud to show it to family, friends and guests. We truly feel we have one of the most beautiful homes we have ever seen! End Quote

Quote StartBuilding our home was a huge undertaking; designing both the exterior and the interior was surprisingly, an absolute pleasure thanks to the expertise of Denise Stringer. In my experience, Denise is a very gifted designer who takes the time to listen and get to know her clients. She has exceptional talent and exquisite taste, and gave us the guidance to create what we feel is our perfect French Country home. Denise provided insight and suggestions in a timely manner; when solutions were needed, she was incredibly resourceful, and was always mindful of our budget. Denise is patient, never rushed, and has the ability to educate in a kind and sensitive manner. My wish was to combine some of my personal treasures and effects with newer ones that would reflect our personal taste. Denise fulfilled my wish; she has the ability to merge warmth with elegance, creating a home that is unique to us, and welcoming to all who visit.Denise does not simply design interiors; she creates beautiful homes and builds trusting relationships that will last a lifetime.End Quote

Quote StartI was very fortunate to obtain the services of Denise Stringer, not once but twice. I will always hire her for any future homes I purchase. Our first project we collaborated on was our guest house on our island in Maine. Denise helped me create a quintessential Maine cottage that all of our guests have loved to stay in and hated to leave. From the colors, to the textures, and the amazing furniture pieces (many of them from local artisans) the guest house is full of Maine charm. Having enjoyed working with Denise so much, I wanted her help when we did a substantial addition on our Maine home. She was on board from start to finish. Her intuitiveness made me feel like I was working with a family member who really shared my vision. Denise's ability to communicate what I wanted to accomplish to the architect and builder was crucial. The new addition blended seamlessly with the original traditional Maine Cottage. From locating old barn board for the ceiling to helping select the distressed, reclaimed flooring, she was actively involved until the last perfect custom chandelier was hung. I get more compliments on my home and I owe it all to her! End Quote

Quote StartDenise is not only a very talented designer but a very detail-oriented, organized person who listened to our input and "wish list" and gave us just what we had in mind....and more. She did the interior design for our entire 8,500 sq. foot house and was able to select and keep track of the seemingly endless design details. She chose all furniture, paint colors, wall paper, window treatments, wood and stone flooring, kitchen cabinets, counter top materials, light fixtures, carpeting, area rugs, most hardware and many accessories. The selections were always made in a timely manner, and ordered and ready for installation when needed. The finished product not only met but exceeded our expectations. The comments on our home were overwhelmingly positive when it was on the local Architects' Tour of Homes. It is a warm, comfortable, beautiful family home that has "worn" well in the 12+ years we have lived in it. There is nothing in Denise's design plan or selections that I would change. At the end of the project, we were given a complete list of paint, wall paper and fabric samples for each room as well as the numbers in case we had to repaint, replace or repair something. I feel very comfortable recommending Denise. She is, without a doubt, professional in every way and one of the top designers in the area. End Quote

Quote StartWe hired Denise to furnish a second home for us which is 700 miles away from Denise and our primary residence. We were concerned about the distance but shouldn't have been. Denise has lots of experience working over great distances and coordinated everything perfectly. She built a terrific relationship with our architect and builder. Denise has extensive interior design knowledge and exquisite taste. She made our home beautiful and comfortable and we wouldn't change a thing! The project was a complete success! End Quote

Quote StartWe reside on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Denise Stringer was recommended to us and we viewed two completed homes that she decorated and furnished on the Island. Her talents and capabilities of making homes comfortable was very apparent to us. We were in the process of building a new home in 2004. Her challenge was to assist us with utilizing some of our existing furniture from the house we had originally purchased, on Hilton Head Island, and combining that with new furnishings, new colors for walls and ceilings. Currently Denise is assisting us again (2014) in updating two bedrooms and our front entry way. Denise has the professional "eye" by looking at existing furnishings and relocating items and giving them proper locations. Her scale perception and color coordination capabilities are excellent. You will find that her communications will be excellent and that she will take the time to listen and provide choices that will fit into the image and environment that you are trying to create. Without hesitation we recommend and trust Denise Stringer Interior Designs. End Quote

Quote StartSix years ago, we decided to totally refurnish and redecorate our condominium. We requested Denise Stringer to develop floor plans, color schemes, window treatments, new furnishings, and to help design new closet spaces. Denise made proposals, requested our input, and gave us a totally new home. The pricing was explained well and we were given many options to choose from. Everything was accomplished within a three month period... After our retirement in 2008, we purchased a new home in Raleigh and asked Denise to guide us in our move to the new space. Denise has a great sense of refurnishing new interiors, but also for respecting older possessions and incorporating them in with the new. It was a wonderful experience to see how well everything was put together... We must add that, along with all of her talents, Denise is also a wonderful, warm and caring person to her family, friends and customers alike. We have enjoyed working with her over these past few years and hope to continue to do so in the future.End Quote

Quote StartFor more than 15 years I've worked on lighting projects for Denise all over the country. Denise takes on a project with complete dedication to her clients needs. From the beginning to the end we address the lighting needed, how it will affect the design in scale, texture, color and function. If we can't find the perfect fixture she designs it. Her creativity is unbelievable. She draws a design or does a cut and paste mock-up and we have it made. She is always looking for a distinctive fixture that brings the unexpected into the design. She works with the electricians on-site to make sure each fixture is installed correctly, hung at the proper height or the correct angle is used to illuminate the artwork. Denise is very organized and keeps each project on schedule. She is professional, enthusiastic, extremely creative and a perfectionist. Her clients receive a perfectly designed project that reflects them and their lifestyle. I feel honored to be on her design team. End Quote

Quote StartWe hired Denise to help us decorate and furnish a second home. She listened to our plan and concepts of what we envisioned the house to look like, then put together various selections to which we could choose. This included floor plans, paint colors, carpets, furniture, wallpapers and art work. Denise has a great eye and can envision the finished product, tying all the details together in a seamless fashion.
