Dennis has been our “go to” Designer for over 20 years.  He has done a beautiful job with the complete renovations of our basement, living room, family room, foyer, powder room and our children’s bedrooms.  We highly recommend DF Design for all home improvement and remodeling projects!

Dennis and DF Design were great to work with from start to finish! We initially called DF Design to help with choosing an exterior siding color for an addition that would match the existing roof and brick, but Dennis was so great and helpful that we also used him to help with all interior paint colors and redesign our interior first floor. Dennis made sure he always provided options within our budget and we could not be happier with the finished product! Thank you Dennis and DF Design.

We engaged Dennis for a color consultation on our 1927 English Tudor. It was finally time to replace the original asbestos roof and siding. We landed on materials pretty quickly but didn’t feel confident about the color choices we had discussed with our contractor. Since it was a big job, we wanted to make sure the colors were exactly right. That’s where Dennis came in. The job is now done with all the colors Dennis suggested. And it is beautiful! Thank you to Dennis for giving us great advise, guidance, and peace of mind.
