Melissa Broffman Interior Design

Melissa Broffman, Allied ASID

Melissa Broffman, owner and principal of Melissa Broffman Interior Design, creates interiors with character, comfort and timeless appeal. Broffman equally embraces traditional, eclectic, transitional and modern designs in projects ranging from decorating to renovations and new-house construction. “I believe it’s all about making a house a home,”

she 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. My designs express each client’s unique personality.”

Prior to becoming a designer, Broffman—a self-described “people person”—worked at CNN, where she dealt with all kinds of subjects, 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 as a designer— I help create a narrative for my clients’ homes that they can live with, embellish and enjoy every day.”

Broffman is a Best of Houzz 2020 award-winner for both design and service. Her work has been featured in Home & Design, The Washington Post and, most recently, the March/April 2020 issue of Arlington Magazine.
