Whether museum-hopping and biking the lakefront trails here in town or experiencing the art and culture of a far-flung city, Designer Zoë relies on her love of travel to infuse her work with fresh ideas. Even when she’s relaxing in front of the TV with her kitten Willow, she keeps her creativity flowing by taking in the best of creative set designs—from HBO dramas to directors like Baz Luhrmann.
Zoë was among a select group of young designers nominated to attend this year’s HD Expo New Design Professionals Program. Her recent projects include the Hampton Inn in Lancaster, the Hyatt House in Fort Lauderdale, and the new Reverb by Hard Rock brand. A native of Iowa City, she graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a BA from their CIDA-accredited interior design program.
