Intern Spotlight (Lia Watson)

Tell us a little about yourself. (Name, school, program you’re studying, where you’re from.)

My name’s Lia Watson and I’m from Philadelphia. I’m currently a senior at UNC Greensboro studying Interior Architecture.

 -What made you interested in interior design?

 I’ve always loved art and design. I was originally going to go into studio art but once I found out that interior design was a thing I could do, I set my sights on that instead.

 -Who are some of your design icons?

 I adore Kelly Wearstler. I love how eclectic her design style is. I also really love Karin Bohn. He style also leans more toward the eclectic but always has a cool twist to something traditional.

 -Describe your design aesthetic

 My personal aesthetic is more bold and colorful when it comes to design. I like a dark and moody vibe.

 -What do you do at Vivid Interiors?

 Im currently an intern at vivid interiors

-What do you like best about interning at Vivid?

I love that we get to experience every part of the design process. At past internships I focused on one main task during my time there and here I get to experience a bit of everything during a project from start to finish.

 -Who are your favorite musicians?

 My music taste is all over the place but I think it comes down to Harry Styles, Bad Suns, and Bring me the Horizon.

 -Favorite drink?

 It’s definitely lemonade. I will drink lemonade with anything at this point.

-What is your sign?

 I’m a Gemini through and through.

-If you could invite anyone to dinner (living or dead) who would it be?

 Oh gosh that’s a hard question. I think it would have to be Kurt Cobain. I have so manny questions for him.

-Tell us three words that describe you.

 Imaginative, versatile, and personable

-What are your plans after graduation?

The goal is to move to a bigger city and work at a small boutique firm but who knows. The last year has really shaken up my plans in many ways so I’m just taking things as they come now.
