My sister and her husband recommended Duncan Hughes Interiors after some work had been completed at their home. The project was not complete yet, but I could see from the plans that Duncan Hughes had put together some really well thought out ideas. Based on that I hired Duncan Hughes for a "re-do" of our living room/dining area. He really helped us push our boundaries of what we would have normally chosen, but left us with a home that is timeless (not trendy), and one that we will not need to redecorate for many years to come. We couldn't be more pleased with the results. Even though my project was started after my sister's, it turned out that they were both finished at almost the same time. We all love our "new" place.

Cooking is even more fun now!.
After Duncan Hughes Interiors finished our kitchen renovation last month, I feel like I have been transformed from the 1980's to the future! Our old junky kitchen just did not live up to the work Duncan Hughes had done in the rest of our Newton home. But after the project was completed, I feel like I have a new lease on the culinary world! The workspaces are well-thought-out, the functionality and design and overall appearance of our kitchen is just everything we dreamed of! We all just love the new kitchen. The idea of renovation was worrysome to me, but it turned out any disruption to our lives was well worth it. Thanks Duncan Hughes for a job well done!

Truly professional and focused.
I was not sure how I was going to manage it all... A new baby, a new house, and I was going back to work in a month! I knew I needed help getting the place together, so I interviewed numerous interior designers and after much internal debate (and conversations with my husband and sister) decided to hire Duncan Hughes. I am so happy to have made this decision! He came in, and I immediately started to feel better. He and his team really handled my project with great energy and focus. I really enjoyed all my meetings with Duncan, and I felt like he was very involved in all aspects of the project (I was warned that some designers pass you off to their juniors once you hire them - this was not the case).
We needed a few major changes before we could focus on decorating the house (new floors, updating the bathrooms). He handled all of the major changes, then came in with a detailed masterplan on how we could accomplish furnishing the rest of the house, all the while taking a keen interest in what would be most reflective of our "style" (I didn't know I even had a style before meeting Duncan)!
Anyway, besides a bit of a delay on the bathroom countertops and a side table, everything came off without a hitch and looks great! It's been almost a year now since completion and he is very happy to help us with our many questions on small things such as how to clean a spot on our upholstered headboard, or where to put a large ceramic statue that we received last week for our anniversary! Thanks Duncan!
Wow. I knew working with an interior designer would be a potentialy intense experience, but I didn't count on enjoying it so much. It did take a little while until I felt that Duncan Hughes and I were on the same page in terms of what kind of style and results I was looking for, but once I was sure he knew what I was looking for I gave him a fairly long leash and am so happy with his creative results. The functionality of my home is even more than what I was looking for. I wanted a house that felt like I lived in it (if that makes any sense), not something overly decorated and "untouchable". The resulting style is sophisticated, worldly, intelligent, comfortable, elegant and inviting. Duncan Hughes has actually made me look forward to coming home after work! Thanks for all the hard work.
Interior Designer with talent. Duncan Hughes Interiors did some work for us on our family room, bathrooms, living and dining room. We are so pleased with the results - I feel like our home is a true original that feels like it reflects our personality. The friends and family that have visited so far have all been impressed. We've already referred Duncan Hughes to one of our close friends. He chose beautiful and durable fabrics and furnishings (great for our lifestyle). All of his contractors and workmen really seemed to enjoy working with Duncan, and wanted to make him happy - the result of this made us very happy with the final workmanship (especially the very cool custom built-in unit in our family room). Looking forward to using Duncan Hughes again.
Our home feels like home. We purchased a new 3 bedroom condo in the South End and hired Duncan Hughes Interiors to do the interior design and implementation. From the first meeting, we knew we made the right choice. Duncan's positive attitude and interest in our needs really impressed us. Carpenters, painters, upholsterers, electricians and flooring installers were all managed with impressive ease. The final results - including our fantastic wool and silk carpeting in the master bedroom - are a joy to behold. Thanks very much for all your efforts!
First Class Service. Duncan Hughes Interiors was resourceful, creative, and organized. We found him through a work associate of mine who had hired Duncan Hughes for their loft in Manhattan. Ours was a large project in Newton, and at no time did I feel things were out of control. My wife is thrilled with the results. We really both felt that it was a collaborative effort between Duncan Hughes and us - and the result is a place that really feels like home. Much appreciated, and highly recommended.
Duncan Hughes really came through for us!.
After a bad situation with a "designer" that really left us in the lurch, Duncan Hughes Interiors came in and straightened our place out. He took over and did everything (and more) that we had expected from the other person we had hired. I just wish we had hired Duncan Hughes first instead of wasting our time and money with someone else.

Editorial Review. Interior design firm handles both commercial and residential properties.
Job well done. Hiring Duncan Hughes Interiors was the best decision we made after buying our new house. We only needed some guidance on choosing paint colors, and some other furniture and carpets to go with what we had. Duncan Hughes not only helped us select all of the items we needed, but provided the painters and carpet installers and managed their work. Duncan Hughes really made it all seem easy.
