My Houzz: Interior Designer Denise Davies' Retro-Glam USA Home

Interior designer Denise Davies of D2 Interieurs spent a full decade designing and decorating her own home in Connecticut, USA. The abundance of choices and her desire to constantly change rooms around contributed to the long timeline. But one look inside and it’s clear the wait was worth it.

Davies mixes soft textures, high-sheen paints and decor, and fun features including shimmery wallpaper on the ceiling in the formal living room to create a cosy but energetic style she describes as “a little bit Miami, a little bit Art Deco and a little bit rock
n roll”. Here she gives us a tour of her lively home.

Such an inviting space and so nice to hear directly from the designer about the intent behind each decision.

Hip and cool but still comfy. Well done. Very curious about that shade pattern in the master bath...

Love seeing interior designers show their own homes.

Lots of nice things in this home. I am seeing more and more spice storage in kitchen drawers and I also like the fact that this designer kept her bathroom medicine cabinets. I thought they were going out of style since you don't see them much anymore.

Lovely place! Sounds like she has the right contacts—painters, upholster, etc. That is probably the most difficult part for most of us.

What a fabulous home. I love the way it's been redone and decorated. I grew up in that area and seeing the updates and the outdoors-trees and stonewalls- is wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Fun! Great space. So curious about the V pattern on the master bath wall above the counter. I’ve played around with 12” tiles like puzzle pieces to achieve a similar look but this one looked as If the design was in a slab. Is that possible? Love!!

I absolutely love the den. Everything is so cool. Could those dogs be any cuter?

The entryway is gorgeous, especially the stairs. Very, very chic! I'm also finding myself drawn to the wallpaper in the hallway shown toward the end of the video (12:30 minutes). Nice touch. And what else? SKYLIGHT!!

I really like what she did. A lot of it isn't exactly my taste, but it works for her house. I wonder why she had to live with that low ceilings in the kitchen. Oh well, she did a great job of making the kitchen feel higher. The bathroom with the skylight is quite nice, it feels huge.

LOVE seeing designer's homes, especially this one! Curious where the palm tree art work in the living room is from, and where she sourced the overhead lighting in the kitchen/dining area.

Between her eyes going glassy & her body rocking in the seat, she was hard to listen to.

Am I the only person who thought the “ring thing” in the man cave would be hours and hours of dusting?
