    STYLE PROFILE- Neat Method DC 

    Name: Catherine Zinn {right} and Raelynn Johnson {left}
    Current Title/Company: Owners and Luxury Professional Organizers / Neat Method DC
    Location: Washington DC metro area

    Welcome to the new Style Profile series where once or twice a month I will profile stylish and creative women in business. Since I started STYLE’N over three years ago I have had the pleasure of meeting so many creative, stylish, and intelligent women along the way and I am excited to introduce some of these fabulous women {and friends} to you as well.  If you’re a regular reader of STYLE’N you know that I like to spotlight my favorite items and collections from various jewelry and clothing designers.  I will definitely continue to share more of those posts but this new series is about profiling and learning more about the stylish women behind these successful brands and businesses. And first up in this new series is Catherine Zinn and Raelynn Johnson, the owners and luxury professional organizers with Neat Method DC 


    I hope you enjoy the new series. I may tweak it as I go along so please feel free to provide feedback and your suggestions about the types of questions you would like me to ask in the future. Thanks! 

    1. What does a typical day look like for you?
    C&R: Our day always begins with coffee.  Whether we are networking with a potential partner, working from home or preparing for a big organizing job, our first order of business entails a warm caffeinated beverage.  The rest of our day is always dictated by  a bulleted list and our calendar.  We are typically juggling networking meetings, social trips to the Container Store (our second home), and helping others live the NEAT life.  event You can find us out and about in every DC neighborhood.

    2. How would you describe your personal style?
    C: Comfortable, casual and classic
    R: Modern Chic, polished and trendy

    3. What are your favorite items in your wardrobe and why?
    C:  My American in Paris dress that is the perfect combination of classic, edgy and formal. I also adore my Louis Vuitton bag and Zara nude heels.
    R: My black suede Cole Haan pumps that yield plenty of toe cleavage.  Also, my black blazer from Club Monaco with gold and leather accents. Lastly, my cream colored blouse from JCrew that can be dressed up or down.

    4. Do you have any style or beauty secrets to share?
    C: Wash your makeup off every night, no matter what (I use cleansing oil to remove impurities followed by a foaming cleanser).   Also, invest in pieces that are timeless and can be mix-and-matched for years to come.
    R: Every girl should own a great statement necklace. Beach wavy hair is the perfect compliment to any outfit (use texturing spray infused with sea salt).

    5. How do you spend your “me” time?
    C: My “me” time is always spent with my English Bulldog, Mr. Juice, a glass of wine and a magazine.
    R: Catching up on any Bravo reality TV shabookand reading with a side of salted dark chocolate.
    6. What is the most important thing you have learned through running your own business?
    C&R: Be patient, disciplined and learn to think outside of the box.

    7. What is your mantra? 
    C: Just keep going.
    R: A place for everything and everything in its place.
