Comments from clients:
"Denise has been our Interior Designer from the time our new home was under construction two years ago. Initially she was instrumental in designing a very unique zebra wood fireplace which has and continues to receive compliments and is one of the beautiful focal points of our home. Denise's talents are unbounded. She worked with us on numerous selections….countertops and back splashes in various stones as well as patios and pool tiles. She provided her expert taste and talent in our selection of window treatments and unique pieces of furniture and accessories. She worked in concert with our builder and cabinet maker. Her efforts resulted in a spectacular and beautifully furnished home that continues to receive rave reviews from all who see it. Denise worked with us on a contemporary theme for our home but has the repertoire to design and decorate any style be it contemporary, traditional or any other. Our builder, who is amazing and very particular, has referred her to other clients of his. Denise has resources that abound. She presents alternatives, for example in lighting fixtures and furniture/accent pieces that are unique, beautiful and tasteful. Denise is an extraordinary designer. We recommend her highly and without hesitation. She is best in class!" -Cathy and Frank Bright
"The first time I walked into Antiques Etcetera I knew that Denise and Martha could provide the level of taste and quality that I desired for my first home. It is twenty-four years later and I am currently working with Denise on my newest home on the west coast of Florida. What amazes me is how the furnishings, fabrics, and art purchased from Denise and their shop, Antiques Etcetera, all continue to work so well in my newest surroundings. I am truly grateful for Denise's knowledge and attention to our family's needs, which has resulted in our very own unique and beautiful home. Even more meaningful is that Denise is working with my newly married daughter on her first home outside of Detroit." -Mary Wallis Smith
"We have worked with Denise Halkias, ASID for 20+ years and are starting our fourth home with her.
Denise combines a creative yet thoughtful vision for home design with a depth of knowledge of interior design and architecture, resulting in both great aesthetics and good living. In all of our homes, Denise has blended antiques and new furnishings. She has kept our pets in mind as important members of the family, solved lighting challenges, designed for unique spaces, and worked within other constraints unique to our sites and the way we live.
Denise has worked with our collected pieces and numerous collections, often in ways that we might not have otherwise envisioned. Also, Denise is very resourceful in finding just the right pieces to complete a room. We have purchased unique garden pieces, French antiques, fabulous paintings from French, Russian, English, Greek artists in all media...and many accessories, all from Denise's and her sister Martha's store, Antiques Etcetera.
We have always found the shop to be a fabulous resource, finding just the right artwork or vase or simply helping us to visualize a new design or get some needed inspiration!" -Dr. and Mrs. Philip Bogler
