More About Melissa . . .

Melissa’s customized process includes your ideas, favorite pictures and family heirlooms as inspirations for designs that capture your one-of-a-kind look, going beyond the retail sameness of today’s home furnishings market. Whether your style is traditional, transitional, eclectic or modern, Melissa’s interiors are infused with character, comfort and timeless appeal.


Melissa apprenticed with leading design firms in the DC area and earned her BA in interior design from Marymount University in 1995. Prior to turning to her design career, she spent nearly a decade in the fast-paced world of television news, observing, listening and telling people’s stories for CNN. 


A self-described people-person, Melissa reflects on that experience: “ In many ways, that’s what I do as a designer. I help my clients create a narrative for their homes which they can add to and enjoy every day.”

Founded in 1998, Melissa Broffman Interior Design is a full-scale residential design firm servicing the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. It is located in Arlington, Virginia and partners with leading architects, builders and seasoned craftsman.


In 2021 Melissa’s work appeared in the March issue of Elle Decor and the November-December issue of Home & Design. She has also been featured in the Washington Post and Arlington Magazine. Melissa is a Best of Houzz 2021 award-winner for both Design & Service and a selected designer in 2020-2021 Home & Design Portfolio, a publication of 100 Top Designers in the Washington, DC Region. She is listed among the architects and interior designers on Virginia Living's statewide Top of the Trades 2021.
