First up: Bec Watkinson; a girl boss, interior designer and super star influencer. This fellow northerner is not just brains and beauty, she also holds down a full-time job as an interior designer, along with building her following on Instagram at the same time - talk about mulit-tasking. Her unique, sassy style is only topped by her sense of humour and hilarious Insta stories- she cracks us up with the highs and lows about living with the parents (we’ve all been there) and her daily musings.
This beauty is definitely someone to watch, and we’re pretty proud that she’s building her empire here in Manchester. We caught up with Bec, to see what started her passion for fashion and interiors, and to see what she has planned for the future!
How did you get into interior designing, had you always been passionate about it?
I remember this like it was yesterday, I was in a rut because everyone had decided what they wanted to study in uni and where they wanted to go. I still hadn't filled out the nightmare form that is UCAS. I was sat with my Auntie and she said you know what, you would do so well as an interior designer. To be honest I hadn’t even considered it so kind of brushed it off. Anyway, a year goes by and I was stuck in a related job thinking this isn’t what I want, so applied to study interior design.
Fast forward a few years and I came out with a 2:1 (2 marks of a 1st can I just say, laughing but crying inside) and a job in an industry I love. I have always been a creative person, academically I’m rubbish, but I think when you find something you love so much and throw your all into it, you won't fail.
