Melissa Colgan

Melissa Colgan brings a wealth of fascinating experiences to Melissa Colgan Interiors, the boutique firm she founded in 2018. After a career in New York City covering international markets and styling interiors for such publications as Elle Décor, Veranda, House Beautiful and Martha Stewart Living, she joined the design scene in DC, where she worked for local luminaries Darryl Carter and Lauren Liess. “It was an invaluable education, although I eschewed the traditional design-school route,” she says. “My background gives me a unique approach; I bring an editor’s eye to every space and know how to scour the globe for the perfect piece.”

Colgan creates collected spaces that toe the line between classic, bohemian and slightly modern. Her attention to detail and sophisticated color sense result in thoughtful and original designs that are imbued with a layered, worldly spirit. She works closely with both clients and other colleagues—architect, contractor, landscape designer and others—to guide a project’s style. “I combine my creative eye and design expertise with my clients’ unique desires to create spaces and places that are as stunning as they are personal,” Colgan notes. “My interiors reflect my belief that the places where we spend our lives should be welcoming, functional and a celebration of individual taste.”
