Bold Colors in a Washington D.C. Pied-à-Terre

The young client of interior designer Zoe Feldman wanted to create a home that felt like her own. Her bubbly personality was a key inspiration for the design of her Kalorama Washington Pied-à-Terre.

Zoe created a home filled with color, elevated materials, and interesting architectural details. The home isn’t very big and Zoe and her team reinvented the layout to make it more suitable for her client.

As the client loves to entertain, the kitchen has been opened up to include the dining room. And a hall closet was turned into a built in furniture piece with a vanity, mirror, drawers, and cabinets. The result of this remodel is a vibrant and chic Washington home.


A stylish kitchen doesn’t have to be big. This wonderful galley kitchen has an antique marbe checkboard floor by Paris Ceramics which adds a more lived-in feeling.


Zoe and her team also designed this plaster architectural arch and vent hood. It adds a great statement feature to the kitchen.


The kitchen space is small so they didn’t add upper cabinets. But some storage was added with this open built in cabinet. The kitchen cabinets are painted in Farrow & Ball “Railings”.


The kitchen has white marble worktops and backsplash combined with fittings that were found on Etsy.


The kitchen is painted in a mixture of white hues. The ceiling is painted in Benjamin Moore’s “Ceiling White”, the walls are painted in Farrow & Ball “Dimity”, and the window frames are painted in Farrow & Ball “London Stone”.


Next to the kitchen lies this amazing purple dining room decorated with House of Hackney Zeus wallpaper.


The bathroom is small but even in the smallest space Zoe managed to add a bold touch to the room. The floor tiles with the curved pattern add a fun touch to the bathroom.


Zoe chose a light stone and an open washtand on legs in the bathroom to make it look bigger. A recessed floor length medicine cabinet prevents counter clutter.
