Meet the growing DW Team

It takes takes TEAMWORK to run a successful Interior Design Firm. Meet Polly & Zaneta who are here to help you!

Polly Teitel – Assistant 

Polly (pictured left) channeled her creative talents towards a degree in Theatre and Fashion Design from FIT. This led her into the Retail market where she was a buyer and also a sales associate for Saks Fifth Ave in Greenwich Ct. Her love for Interiors formed when she and her husband bought a beautiful farmhouse built in 1842 with wonderful architectural details. She realized that she loved the business of Interior Design and all of the details associated with process.

“Since 2014 I have enjoyed working behind the scenes at DW Design & Décor to handle the many project details by connecting with clients, manufacturers, artisans and installers. It takes so many people to bring the creative ideas to life for our clients. The best part is seeing the transformation photos of someone’s home as a result of our great teamwork!”

 

Zaneta Vopatova – Design Associate

Zaneta (pictured right) grew up in the Czech Republic, and started her career as an Accountant in CZR.

She came to the US in 2003 to improve her English skills and 15 years later is still working on that! After completing an Associates degree in 2007, she went to study Finance at SUNY New Paltz and simultaneously earned an Associates degree in Interior Design from Berkeley College in Paramus, NJ.

Why Interior Design? “I wanted to be able to help people to create beautiful and functional environments. My first encounter with the design world was as an independent consultant for a construction company, where I discovered a love for drafting. I joined the DW Design & Decor team in March 2018 to help with drafting and all aspects of the Interior Design process. I enjoy designing interiors and gardens as well. I love DIY projects and I am a big fan of finding new purposes for old things!”

The common element throughout is good design. There’s always a reason why an element is chosen for a certain place, whether it’s a colorful painting in a room or a specific fabric on a chair. There’s also a functionality to every item that is unique to each project’s solution. It’s sort of like an oversized jigsaw puzzle with a place and reason for each piece.

“Your rooms are like a painting. Each component is a brushstroke to create the whole picture. It’s magic every time!”
