Lee Harmon Waters
Lee is a compassionate, action-oriented designer with a straight-shooting streak of humor that will keep you feeling at ease and in-the-know throughout your project. She is the area's only interior designer to have educational and professional backgrounds in interiors, fine arts, and community engagement and connection. She truly knows what it takes to create an environment that is beautiful, comfortable, and allows you to live in your home in a way that enhances your time spent with family and friends.
Lee's interest in interiors began at a young age, and by six years old she was regularly cajoling her siblings to help her rearrange her bedroom furniture. She pursued this obsession through undergraduate studies in both interiors and fine arts, later obtaining a MFA in Interior Environments from VCU.
In addition to growing up in a close knit family of seven, Lee's career experience at two universities in engaging and connecting students has given her a deep understanding of meaningful relationship dynamics.
Lee lives in Midlothian, VA with her husband and three children. She loves walks, laughing, British TV, lemon scented anything, and YouTube videos of wild animals.
