Danise Talbot Design, an interior-design shop featuring furnishings, decor and professional design services, has

opened at 263 Riverside Ave.

The 600-square-foot shop offers what proprietor Danise Talbot called "an eclectic mix" of furniture, hangings, jewelry and accent pieces.

The space in a free-standing, one-story building previously housed a land-use architect, and before that, a jewelry shop.

Talbot has 10 years of experience as an interior designer with Lillian August, the Norwalk-based furniture and design chain, according to a news release.

She has designed interiors for hotels,

bed and breakfasts, physician offices, spas, nightclubs, commercial stores and residences.

Before opening the new design shop, Talbot operated a boutique jewelry store in Westport, she said.

Danise Talbot Design's services include presentations using

software such as Icovia space planner, AutoCAD, and Photoshop, according to the release.

Talbot holds a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Connecticut and has studied in Fairfield University's interior design program, she said.

Danise Talbot Design, 263 Riverside Ave. Hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, closed Sunday and Monday. Call 203-952-1112 or visit www.danisetalbotdesign.com .
