If you’re looking for a designer with stylish yet practical ideas and the experience to follow it through to completion, I recommend Peter Hughes and Renaissance Interior Design.
We were looking to give new life to a tired 20-year-old townhouse with a builder-grade grade kitchen. Peter Hughes was the first interior designer we interviewed that had the experience and confidence to present a design that not only vastly improved our kitchen within our limited space, he also suggested creative changes to the adjoining dining and living areas as well as furniture and lighting that brought a previously disjointed space together into a unified space that fits our style and that we’re proud to share with family and friends.
Peter is particularly skilled at providing value. He is realistic in what renovations will truly provide value, and he knows how to save money on materials without cutting corners. In particular, Peter helped us select custom cabinetry in our kitchen, bar and living room that is stylish and functional, but but with wood and style elements that saved us money. He never pressured us to select a more expensive option, and he always had a cost-effective recommendation that fit our needs.
Major projects like a home renovation will inevitably hit snags, but Peter will find a way around any unexpected challenges your house might throw at you. He is always available to answer your questions and hear your ideas. He is truly dedicated to his clients.

To Whom It May Concern:
Peter Hughes and Renaissance Interiors renovated and modified a Victorian in the 14th ST. corridor in Washington, DC for me. He utilizes his unique insight into a customer's needs and tailors his service accordingly. Peter has an innate ability to analyze your use of space to maximize utility and functionality. He has a broad network of contractors, suppliers, and craftsmen who are professional and detailed oriented. He gave us an outstanding quality of work and paid close attention to detail with his mastery of design he created the environment we were searching for. With Peter, you get the best service and also the best price. If quality, attention to detail, and integrity are what you are searching for you need to look no further than Renaissance Interior Design.

Peter Hughes of Renaissance Design Interiors was my knight in shining armor! What does that mean? I was introduced to Mr. Hughes just as I was at my wits end with a contractor that did not perform as promised. Just as I fired that unethical and unreliable contractor, Mr. Hughes stepped in with incredible plans on how my job could not only be salvaged, but be completed far beyond my imagination. Mr. Hughes was attentive, understanding and easy to work with. He made suggestions and recommendations that took my renovation from ordinary to extraordinary! Peter Hughes was always responsive and kept his promises with deliveries and quality products. Even after the project was completed, Mr. Hughes has been very responsive with quality referrals for plumbers, electricians, etc. I highly recommend Peter Hughes of Renaissance Design Interiors.MY BASEMENT MESS
To Whom It May Concern,
Renaissance Interior Design (RID) completely redesigned and renovated my condo after it was gutted. Based on the professional work and creative talent of Mr. Peter Hughes, RID almost doubled the value of this residence. Mr. Hughes is a gifted interior designer and would be a great asset to anyone who plans to redesign, restore, and renovate a property.

To Whom It May Concern:
Peter Hughes and Renaissance Interiors renovated and modified the reception area and conference room for my office. He designed and installed a two-tiered marble topped reception station with grass cloth walls. This immediately changed the atmosphere and aesthetics for the office, so much so, that this look was adopted and copied by our neighbors. In addition, Peter designed and installed built in bookcases and storage for our conference room. Our conference room is glass enclosed so the impact of the beautiful stained maple doors can be seen as soon as you enter our offices. Peter did a great job of enhancing the professional atmosphere and prestige of our work environment while also improving our efficiency and functionality.
I also had the pleasure of engaging Renaissance Interiors and Peter Hughes to oversee the purchase and installation of furniture for the office. That was the initial goal, however, based on the outstanding quality of work, attention to detail and mastery of design, Peter went on to do several projects for myself and my colleagues, including, a stellar kitchen renovation, a classy, upscale makeover of a two bedroom condo - fit for diplomat - and consultation on a three Unit Victorian renovation.
At this point, I would consult Peter for everything from fabric to a full gut renovation. Peter utilizes his unique insight into a customer's needs and tailors his service accordingly. He analyzes your use of space to maximize utility and functionality. He has a deep and broad network of contractors, suppliers and craftsmen who are as professional and detailed oriented as Peter. With Peter, you not only get the best service, you also get the best price. If quality, punctuality, honesty, integrity and attention to detail are important to you, then you need look no further than Peter Hughes and Renaissance Interiors.

I am absolutely amazed and pleased by the transformation that Renaissance Interiors executed in my space. Mr. Hughes listened to my desires, learned my tastes and delivered a warm, inviting home with various colors, textures and materials. At every turn he located opportunities for cost savings while elevating the style of the finished work. In the end, the finished work would typically have cost double what I paid for the project. The ability to deliver a charming space within budget speaks to Renaissance Interiors passion as a design team, their commitment to their customers and their knowledge of the marketplace. The kitchen and bathroom have been converted from small dark spaces to being alive and functional. All of my guests walk straight to the kitchen back splash and marvel at the color and texture.
