The journey, to Denise, is the most exciting part of a design project. Her own varied journey has included stints in the restaurant and hotel industries, as well as being a faux finisher and mural painter. After rehabbing her 1940s era townhouse, and enjoying the adventure (with all its decision making) she eventually returned to school and subsequently opened her own business, Denise Dering Design, in 1994. To streamline the design process, she asks to hear dislikes first, because it's easier for most people. Denise's dream project would be designing and building her vacation getaway near a beach.
