Danette Handyside NCIDQ


Danette graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Interior Design and a minor in Business Administration. She also earned the National Council of Interior Design Qualification certification.

Danette loves to help clients articulate their vision to make their dream project a reality. She looks beyond trendy singular styles, and as a result, her projects ring with character and life. Danette’s designs are tailored to each client, allowing their unique personalities to shine through every color, material and finish selection.

“One of the things I appreciate most about HighCraft – the client is the number-one priority, and we’re here as a team to make the client happy and the project successful.” – Danette

LIKES: Being organized, spending time outside, a completed checklist, country music, and teeny-tiny little baby shoes.

DISLIKES: Cool and warm colors fighting in a color palette, lemon seeds in water, and someone parking next to her car in an otherwise empty parking lot.

More than meets the eye:
Danette’s parents own and operate an outfitter business, so she grew up hunting, fishing and camping near Kremmling, Colorado – a small town nestled in the Rocky Mountains. No surprise, Danette continues to be an avid outdoorswoman, and enjoys sharing the family’s deep love of nature with her children: Ruby, Jet and Flint.

Danette was awesome, so patient with us! We could not have gotten it pulled together aesthetically without her. – Bob and Rosemary L.
