Meet Lesly Maxwell

Warm.

Thoughtful.

Detail-oriented.

This is how clients, colleagues, and friends best describe Lesly Maxwell’s approach to design, relationships, and her way of life.

A natural hostess who effortlessly puts guests at ease, Lesly pulls from 30-plus years of design education and experience, as well as an innate sense of style and impeccable taste, to create rooms where individuals, couples, families and companies feel their best. She personally shepherds each project – from initial conversations to hand-drawn renderings to the final placement of the perfect, hand-picked accessory – to deliver signature rooms that look exceptional, live beautifully and reflect the client’s personal aesthetic and lifestyle.

Born in Central Pennsylvania, Lesly earned a B.A. in Communications and Spanish and went on to work in the corporate spectrum in sales and marketing. From there she opted to make a career change and earned an Associate Degree in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. After apprenticing at a notable Boca Raton, Fla., design firm, Lesly quickly advanced to Senior Project Designer and took on commissions to custom-design and manage high-end residential installations, model homes and industry events.

Lesly lives and breathes design, and her passion is reflected by the many awards she has won and the multiple publications that have featured her work. She simply loves what she does: enhancing the lives of clients, one door and four walls at a time.

Design Philosophy

Exuding a vibrant, contagious energy, Lesly brings to each project the foundation of her formal education, three decades of work in the design industry, a well-traveled life and the experience of raising four children. She advises clients to first make fundamental and practical decisions, then fuses those preferences with fabric and furniture selections to create her signature décor. Her intuitive ability to realize and address the needs of clients allows her to create an inviting environment, whether the style is eclectic, sophisticated, luxurious, casual, formal or playful.

I think everything in life is art. what you do. how you dress. the way you love someone, and how you talk. your smile and your personality. what you believe in, and all your dreams. the way you drink your tea. how you decorate your home. or party. your grocery list. the food you make. how your writing looks. and the way you feel.

life is art.”
