bio

Melissa Colgan is a designer known for spaces that toe the line between classic, bohemian, and slightly modern. Prior to establishing her own design house, Melissa’s work as an interiors and prop stylist was featured in national publications including ELLE DECOR, Veranda, House Beautiful, and Martha Stewart magazines. Since relocating from New York City to Washington DC, she cut her teeth in the local design industry working for Darryl Carter and Lauren Liess Interiors. Her attention to detail and sophisticated color sense results in thoughtful and original designs that are imbued with layered spaces and a worldly spirit. Ever curious, Melissa’s pool of inspiration ranges from the work of the late Billy Baldwin to the textile combinations of fashion designer Dries Van Noten and the architecture and furniture designs of Jean Michel Frank. Whether decorating a city aerie, a rural farmhouse or a seaside getaway, Melissa’s interiors reflect her belief that the places where we spend our lives should be welcoming, functional and a celebration of individual taste.
