New Neighbor on Potomac Street: Zoe Feldman Designs
On behalf of the Georgetown Media Group, we would like to welcome our new neighbor, Zoe Feldman. This local designer started her business, Zoe Feldman Designs in 2004 and relocated to her new office space above the Georgetown Media Group on Potomac Street June 29. We had the opportunity to sit down with Feldman and ask her about her company and what got her there.
Q: How did you get started?
A: A couple of good choices and a lot of luck. I went to school for advertising and found out it wasn’t my jam. So, I went to interior design school, and got an internship with Mark Hampton, Inc. It turned into an assistant job, and by the time I left I was a designer.
Q: How long have you been in the interior designing business?
A: I started my business in 2004, and I’ve been in the Georgetown area for almost five years. We just moved from down the street because it was too small. The new space is the perfect fit, and it was the push we needed to take a risk.
Q: What’s your design style?
A: Classic modernism. I grew up in a mid-century modern home with pop art. I use a blend of classical and modern, and I like to modernize traditional spaces but also pay homage to the history. My design style is always evolving.
Q: What kind of demographic do you try to appeal to?
A: I’d say young professionals. Cool couples in their 40s, a few bachelors and more established clients. Basically, people looking for a little more of a less traditional D.C. look.
Q: What inspires you?
A: I’m very inspired by art, nature-like colors and texture in nature and fashion. I look at what the space is begging for. The space I work in and the clients are the most important things.
Q: Is there any thing else you’d like the Georgetowner readers to know?
A: I’m a fan of Georgetown, and I’m for hire!
