Our Interior Design Studio is led by Designer, Creative Director and World-Class Branding Expert, Maxwell L. Alexander who has developed Brand & Design Strategies for hundreds of brands all around the World, ranging from technology startups, wellness & fitness brands, to Fortune 500 companies and globally renown non-profit organizations and government agencies.
After the Graduate Experience & Exhibit Design Program at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Maxwell was able to take his client's branded multi-sensory trade show experiences to the next level and now he is applying concepts of experiential design in his interior design work at Duncan Avenue Design Studio right here in the Hudson Valley.
"My approach to interior design is much like the higher level experiential design that takes into account multiple dimensions of what we as human beings can feel, see, touch, smell and comprehend intellectually.
Every time during an interior design project I focus on creating not just beautiful, sophisticated and stylish interiors, but also on an overall multi-sensory experience that evokes those cozy feelings of comfort, safety, and wellbeing that are so important to a place where we spend the most time of our lives.
Artificial and natural light, sound, air quality and smells, spacial layouts and shapes, colors, textures and materials, cultural ques, art and decor - all of these factors affect our emotions, feelings, and overall wellbeing, so my goal is to put the theory of experiential design to work for you and create an inspiring interior environment where you can feel your best and thrive every moment you spend in it, while increasing your real property value and being proud of the trendy and culturally relevant new home that you'll live in."

World Class Interior Design & Construction Consulting Services in the Hudson Valley
In line with Duncan Avenue's "Design, Sustainability, and Social Responsibility" mission, our Interior Design Studio plays a leading role and outlines Sustainable Design Strategy to our Design & Construction Division.
Modern Rustic Style and Sustainable Design
We are big fans of the current modern rustic design trend and the use of reclaimed materials for residential and commercial interior design projects. We take it even further with our strong commitment to reduce or completely forgo the use of plastics and VOC-emitting polymers in our home interiors. Concepts of energy and material-efficiency affect our design aesthetics as well, which helps our sustainable interiors to stand out from the crowd.
We are not just Designers and Builders, but also Realtors
At the same time, we are licensed Realtors, which brings another advantage point to our clients: Before we take on a remodeling/interior design project, we run a comparative market assessment of each property and provide a report that can help to establish a renovation budget within real estate property market value. Have you heard of the "overbuilt for the area" phrase on HGTV? We will never propose a renovation project that will go beyond what makes sense for the market.
No-surprises Flat-Fee Pricing
Unlike the interior design industry standard, our pricing is not commission based but is a predictable and all-inclusive flat-fee quoted per each space. We do not have contracts with suppliers and won't try to sell you overpriced kitchen cabinets or the trendy tile that had 5 reseller markups before it got into your hands. In fact, we have built a robust network of free or nearly free reclaimed interior design material sources that will not only make your projects cost-efficient but also socially responsible and environmentally-friendly.
