- Tell us a little about yourself. (Name, school, program you’re studying, where you’re from.)
My name is Hannah Freeman, and I am from Asheboro, North Carolina. I am currently studying interior design at Randolph Community College, and I will graduate in May.
- What made you interested in interior design?
I have always been the girl to want to re-arrange my room, change wall colors, and do DIY projects, but I really knew I wanted to study interior design when I was 16. The only thing I asked for Christmas that year was to “re-do” my entire bedroom, and I did just that! I selected all new flooring, wall color, window treatments, and accessories. I was able to up-cycle my current dresser and night stands, paint them white, and give them brand new knobs. It was SO much fun. I think my favorite part was ripping up the carpet I had and being able to lay down dark engineered hardwood flooring. This entire process made me realize that this was what I wanted to make a career out of.
- Who are some of your design icons?
I definitely have to say that my favorite design icon is Joanna Gaines. I absolutely adore her and her classic, clean aesthetic. I have been loving the slight modern turn that her design style has taken lately. I also love the bright, colorful, and bold style of Jamie Drake. I love how he incorporates such bright, vivid colors into all of his spaces. As you can see from reading this paragraph, my style can turn quite transitional.
- Describe your design aesthetic.
I think if I had to list four adjectives that describe my design aesthetic those would be: feminine, transitional, vintage, and chic.
- What do you do at Vivid Interiors?
At Vivid Interiors I do a variety of different things. I make mood boards for certain projects, work in studio web-ware to check pricing and information on invoices for clients, organize our fabrics, and I also help prepare for installations.
- What do you like best about interning at Vivid?
What I like best about interning at Vivid is being surrounded by a group of wonderful ladies who love interior design, and are willing to teach me more about the industry and how I can run my own design firm one day.
- Who are your favorite musicians?
My favorite musicians are Beyoncé, Maren Morris, and Sam Hunt.
- Favorite drink?
I LOVE strawberry lemonade.
- What is your sign?
My sign is Aries.
- If you could invite anyone to dinner (living or dead) who would it be?
If I could invite anyone to dinner I would invite Shay Mitchell. She is one of my favorite actresses in my favorite television show, Pretty Little Liars.
- Tell us three words that describe you.
Three words that describe me are observant, determined, and fashionable.
- What are your plans after graduation?
My plans after graduation are to begin taking the steps to establish my own interior design firm. I will most likely work a full-time job straight out of graduation, but I will be taking steps to build my firm in the midst of working as well.
