Jeffery mentions, “We step into the ground to survey a project’s surroundings… to live and touch down on how natural light interplays with the environment and the gesture of its transitive perspective throughout the year.” This immersion allows Maynard to envisage a design that frames the conversation with a ballad of materiality, textures, light, and furnishings. “When looking for inspiration, it’s about looking into the arts, showing a client something they may have not seen before, and educating them on the sophistication of modern design in otherworldly applications. It’s our job to push the boundaries, tailor to their needs, and create magnificence.”

“The ultimate Interior Design team member is a firm that understands architectural detail, schematics, scale, and onsite coordination, not just a textile or furniture decorator that designs rooms. Jeffrey Maynard fills the expertise needed to bring an extraordinary living experience to life.”

In partnership with Maynard Design, the leaders of fine custom cabinetry bring the virtu of Italian-based craftsmanship to their first residential project on the Western shore. Senior Partners Andrea Subotovsky and Deborah Naierman at ItalKraft noted, “Jeffrey brought a design nuance filled with sublime details that we superbly integrated into our custom design aspects, and collaboratively we turned dreams into reality.”

“Our design approach was very client-driven. We took all the input from the client and created many different layouts, refining the approach into a single concept that became the genesis for its architecture. The house has bold, strong forms that have a great deal of three-dimensional interludes that play inside and out of the space, creating a juxtaposition of perpendicular details.”

“The spectacular site drove the design decisions to craft an architectural timepiece. The anomaly of the poorly-respected existing site is the exquisite unobstructed ocean views that hang off the edge of a cliff straight to the ocean beacon. Our approach to the design was to mirror the value of the panoramic view by adding layers to the exterior infrastructure, giving a larger appearance to a smaller property.”


Defined by masculine sensibilities, Maynard’s theatrical arrangement is a suave nod to the late 60s contemporary with a twist. There’s a moody, yet well-tailored aesthetic with tonal sensibilities of metallic slates, brass, bronze, dark browns, charcoal, russets, mahogany, sepia, gold’s and blacks that glissando with the instrumentation of light to create a progression of interior fluidity. The proficiency of materials is product driven to give a sleek edge. Jeffrey adds, “We are directly in contact with some of the world’s most influential present day artisans.”
