Washington, D.C. Interior Designer Learns to Think Small

T

hough she now calls Washington, D.C. her home, interior designer Zoe Feldman has experienced a tour of her own small-space living, up and down the East Coast.

There was the miniscule kitchen of her Sarasota rental; three space-challenging Manhattan dwellings (two with an added faux wall for even less living space); and a narrow Georgetown townhouse. So in addition to her training at Parsons and four years at a Manhattan design firm, Feldman always seemed to find herself in a real-world crash course on how to make the most of her space. Lucky for us, she's willing to share her secrets.
