As a family matter, Nadia Watts has art and design in her bones. Growing up in Alexandria, Virginia, she spent weekends with her mother, an art educator, at the Smithsonian Museums and The National Gallery of Art. Plus, she is the great-great granddaughter of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Early in her career, Nadia worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she helped gather pieces of Tiffany’s work for a special exhibition. This hands-on appreciation of the depth and diversity of her ancestor’s designs prepared her to design for a diverse array of styles and cultures.
Nadia Watts Interior Design focuses on maximizing space, recognizing natural light, and accenting a home’s best features. “I combine favorite pieces of furniture and family heirlooms with new colors, patterns, and textures to produce a unique look and feel,” explains Nadia. “Through furniture, fabric application, window treatments, and color selection, the client’s style is brought to life.”
Nadia earned her undergraduate degree at Hollins University in Virginia, then completed the graduate program at New York School of Interior Design. From there she went on to work with Elaine Stephenson Interiors of Virginia and Douglas Associates Interior Designers of Colorado. She started her own design firm in 2009.
The work of Nadia Watts Interior Design has been featured in numerous publications, which include Luxe Interiors + Design, 5280 Home, Dering Hall, The Scout Guide, Colorado Homes and Lifestyles, and Reign Magazine.
