What is the nature of your business?
My business is DeniseGiannaDesigns. I am an interior designer with a studio:shop at 494 Main St. Beacon NY.
I LOVE what I do but I especially love to work with clients and projects that present a challenge – a time or budget constraint, an interesting space layout or combination of treasured possessions. To keep by services practical and accessible to all, I charge for my services hourly and flexible and offer a complimentary consultation for most services.

How do you think Beacon is different from other Hudson Valley cities?
I think Beacon is what other Hudson Valley cities want to mature into: open, friendly, confident, accessible and welcoming!
Using your imagination, describe Beacon five years from now.
In my imagination, Beacon in five years will be even more polished and posh. However, my hope is that we never lose our unique quirkiness and acceptance of all types of people.
