Denise and Tab have completed a number of projects for our home. They made all of our window treatments and slipcovers as well as wallpapered and painted; everything is beautiful!!! They do excellent work and have many awesome ideas for decorating. I have recommended them to many friends and they all have been thrilled with Designs By Denise!

I’ve had Denise sew slipcovers and throw pillows for me, and was very happy with her work. She is a talented seamstress and very meticulous about her work. I referred a friend who was also very satisfied with her work. I plan to contact Designs by Denise in the near future for another project.

Denise and her husband Tab are so talented. She can do anything. She made several unique window treatments for my home including roman shades, transverse curtains, and stage coach shades. She made several beautiful decorative pillows for me. Tab built and installed picture frame chair molding in my dining room. I definitely recommend Designs by Denise. They are amazing.

Denise Rupe is an amazing designer. She gave me so many ideas and made beautiful shades and pillows for my bedroom. She and her design team created and installed picture frame moulding for my dining room in just a few hours. I am already working with her on the next project.


We have worked with Denise and Tab for almost 20 years, on projects and renovations for numerous residential and commercial properties, and results have ALWAYS exceeded expectations. Their work ethic and quality of work are exceptional. When ‘m beginning a project, I’ll include them at the planning stage because they often had great ideas for how to make improvements for design, function, or to warn about possible trouble-spots that we can address before we start. 

I think the best part for me is that they are a ONE-stop-shop: custom window treatments, slip covers, bedding; wallcovering installations, interior/exterior painting (decorative finishings, too!), custom murals; wood flooring installations, etc. They’ve done complete remodeling projects: media rooms, bedrooms, garage, playrooms. 

They were a lifesaver when they swooped in to do repair work after water/fire damage. Living in coastal VA, house maintenance is constant battle due to salty air and big storms. After all these years, Tab knows our home and has us on a schedule for pressure washing, trim painting, repair/replace items possibly damaged in storm season. I don’t worry about our home losing value because it is properly maintained and cared for by this great team. After a big hurricane or winter nor’easter, Tab knows our home and will check in to make sure everything is “ship shape.” They care about their clients. With any project, I only make one call, and it’s Designs by Denise!

I would never hesitate to use the company. I have used them for over 25 years and have yet to be disappointed and have recommended them to many, many people who all feel the same way. We are lucky to have them.
