Melissa Broffman Interior Design

Melissa Broffman, Allied ASID

Melissa Broffman, owner and principal of Melissa Broffman Interior Design, designs interiors with character, comfort and timeless appeal. Broffman equally embraces traditional, eclectic, transitional and modern designs in decorating projects, renovations and new-house construction. “I believe it’s all about making a house a home,” Broffman says. “I strive to capture a one-of-a-kind look by incorporating personal treasures and family heirlooms that go beyond the retail sameness of today’s home-furnishings market. The result is a design that expresses each client’s unique personality.”

A self described “people person,” Broffman worked at CNN prior to becoming a designer and dealt with all kinds of people, including celebrities and newsmakers. “The experience taught me to express myself and see the big picture by observing, listening and telling a story,” she comments. “In many ways, that’s what I do everyday as a designer—help create a narrative for my clients’ homes that they can live with, embellish and enjoy everyday.”

Broffman recently completed work on the Northwest DC home of CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash; the project was featured in Home & Design’s Late Fall 2015 issue.
