DeniseMcGahaBio

Denise McGaha Interiors is a dynamic, client-driven design firm reinventing traditional style for over two decades. A creative force, Denise’s current projects range from a penthouse pied-a-terre to a sprawling family estate and a dreamy, lakeside retreat.

Denise’s unique design perspective is grounded in a love of the earth and dressed up by a flair for color and pattern. Her enduring designs range from sanctuary-like respites to invigorating family spaces, always delivering style, comfort, and a foundation for a well-lived life.

Denise’s knack for balancing style and luxury with real-life solutions has become a signature. Modern-day lifestyles call for versatile spaces that work equally well for formal gatherings as well as a relaxing Saturday with family. Entertaining is a big part of Denise’s life, and a reality for many of herclients. She and her husband, Scott, share a love of hosting friends and family, and place great value in making memories at home.

Maintaining a well-rounded approach to living has been ingrained in Denise since childhood. Growing up in Texas, Denise was heavily influenced by her wonderful grandmother, Anna. “She was a bookkeeper, an excellent cook, gardener, seamstress, hostess, traveler, collector, an impeccable dresser. I thought that’s what a woman was supposed to be—everything!” Denise collaborates with clients on so much beyond interiors, consulting on landscaping, tabletop, holiday entertaining, custom monograms and home scents, all with business savvy and a deep respect for telling each client’s story.

Over the years, Denise’s stunning interiors have caught the attention of prestigious media outlets both nationally and regionally, including Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, House Beautiful, Luxe, and D Home, where she was named one of Dallas’ Best Designers of 2021. Denise was also awarded the prestigious Interior Designer award by the ARTS Awards in 2018. She is regularly tapped by the industry as an influencer, with a robust, devoted social media following.
