Local Art, Custom Lighting & Client Connections: About Danise Talbot Design Story by Ashley Rose Marino

anise’s designs are anything but ordinary. Her favorite colors, oranges and blues, can be seen alongside original artworks from local artists in any one of her meticulously decorated rooms. Danise Talbot Design is a full-service design firm that helps clients choose everything in their homes, including the kitchen sink. Danise, principal and owner, specializes in kitchen and bathroom design, but works with clients to create homes that are truly customized inside and out. This Westport, CT, designer has been in business for four years and has made a huge impression on her clients in that short period of time. The hallmark of Danise Talbot Design is her ability to connect with her clients. “I love to go to where my clients are and see what’s going on near them,” she says. The way she personally interacts with her clients and the way she locally sources are what set her apart from other interior design businesses in the area. “A house is never finished until you have some artwork in it,” says Danise. Her studio is located next to a gallery, with whom she often collaborates to bring original art to her clients. Danise also works with specialty lighting services to bring an exclusive custom touch to her clients’ space. The lighting company she works with “makes the lighting new,” she says, “so

it looks like the masters have made it.” She steers her clients away from pieces that are easily recognizable to give them a look that is anything but cookie cutter. In an article published earlier this year, Danise said that “to evolve in design means to be open to inspiration and information.” Her clients are always looking to refresh their spaces, and she says she’ll be there with them along their design journey. Creating fresh spaces that last generations is what Danise Talbot Design is all about, but she recognizes and embraces the fact that people are always re-creating and making their spaces new again. She promises to move with her clients as their lives change, which further shows her commitment to personally connect with each of them, and create the lasting relationships that set her firm apart from the rest. Danise Talbot Design serves clients in Connecticut and NYC and around the country. Danise Talbot Designs 263 Westport Avenue Westport, CT 06880 203.952.1112 danisetalbotdesign.com
