Get to Know Denise Reilly Baker

Denise loves the concept of transforming rooms using existing household furnishings and accessories. ReDesigning offers a high-impact custom "designer look," without the typical designer prices! Most homeowners have already purchased things they love, or have collected special treasures over the years, but the room may not look and feel or function how they want it to, the way it is currently decorated.

That's why I am so passionate about redesign. Homeowners don't want to completely re-invent the style of their home and really just need a fresh new look that is a reflection of their sense of style and taste of who they are using what already exists in their home. The transformation that is created is absolutely amazing! Each individual homeowner's style is unique and different; it can be Traditional, Contemporary, Modern or Country. No matter what your style, the end result with a redesign project is always the same - an amazing transformation!

Denise is a Professional Certified Interior ReDesign Industry Specialist, I.R.I.S., a Certified Interior Staging Specialist, C.I.S.S. and a graduate of Interior ReDesign School. Denise is also a member of the 2008 National I.R.I.S. Planning Committee, Member of the Interior ReDesign Directory, and a member of the Active Rain Real Estate Network.


ReDesign Consultation/Estimate

During our one hour consultation, we will take a tour of your home and "shop" for items that will help us create the ultimate interior design makeover. We will also discuss and prioritize which rooms (spaces) you would like to have ReDesigned, as well as discussing your decorating goals, budget, function and purpose of the room(s), traffic patterns, etc., and possible focal points.

(Schedule a ReDesign after our consultation and a portion of the consultation fee will be credited toward your ReDesign project)

Layer by layer, the ReDesign process unfolds into an amazing and dramatic transformation giving your space a fresh new look and the feel of a brand new room-all using your existing décor. A room ReDesign typically costs less than an upholstered chair and is completed in less than a day!

Real Estate Staging

You only get one chance to make a great first impression! Statistics show that staged homes are on the market for less time and sell for more money.

With Art of ReDesigning Staging services, we will help enhance and highlight your homes best features! Buyers tend to fall in love with homes that they can quickly envision themselves living in.

This is accomplished by "editing" or "depersonalizing" rooms as well as re-arranging furniture and accessories to optimize space and showcase architectural beauty within your home.

Potential buyers prefer to visit a staged property first over a non-staged property. Staging a home, will always cost less than a first price reduction on your home.

Art of ReDesigning Real Estate Staging offers maximum style & color impact as well as enhanced first impressions to your potential buyers.

Move-Services Typically, when you move from one house to the next, what do most people do? Place all the items that were in the living room, back in the living room. Place all the items that were in your bedroom, back in the bedroom. We bring a whole new perspective and creativity to this process, that you will absolutely be thrilled you hired us. This service begins with a consultation that includes photos and measurements of your furniture at the home you currently reside in. Then we meet again and take photos and measurements of your new home. We then come back for a third time and coordinate the entire placement of the furniture with the movers. You don't have to do anything. Once you have unpacked and grouped similar items together, we come back and decorate the whole house using our redesign expertise and training. Not only is this experience affordable, it cuts your move-in time in half and you have a fresh new look with out having to purchase anything new. After the redesign is complete and you need a few things, we will supply you with a wish list of those exact items for you to buy or we can purchase them for you to finish.
