Jillian Harris: Practical Style, Elegant Design
We talk to the young Interior Designer and former Bachlorette contestant about her laid back, practical approach to style, being on TV and future plans with her Design business.
Jillian Harris fits a lot of the cliches of a petite energetic women; firecracker, spitfire, even bundle of energy. Cliches aside Jillian has a great work ethic and pure artistic talent that ensures her a status as a bona fide designer and not a “celebrity designer” who##Q##s popularity is based on fame and not talent.
Born in Peace River, Alberta, Canada Jillian was educated at BCIT for interior design and has a design resume that includes Cactus Club Café, Browns Restaurant & Bar, former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and most recently Jillian designed the rail car interiors for the Rocky Mountaineer train.
Being on the Bachelorette has definitely boosted Jillian##Q##s name recognition, but Jillian told me she would be just as happy opening a design boutique where she resides in Kelowna BC and focus on her design work away from the spotlight and still feel fulfilled.

AF – Was acting in the blood, were you the ‘dramatic’ one of your friends or did you come in to as you got older?
To be honest, I am a huge ham. I’m the first-born, I’m a Leo and I love entertaining more than anything in the world, so, yes it’s definitely in my blood. If I can grab your attention and make you laugh, I will try my hardest to do so – well, unless I’m grumpy and then I will sulk, pout and ignore you. I was quite involved in theatre when I was a kid so I always had an outlet for my dramatic outpourings and before I found the theatre audiences I forced my family to witness many of my performances. I feel especially sorry for my brother. He had to listen to 10 years of me practicing singing. Poor guy.
AF -How old were you when you did your first production? What was it?
I believe my first theatrical performance was playing Mary in my kindergarten Christmas Play. I accidentally dropped baby “Jesus” off of the stage onto his Cabbage Patch doll head. I was less concerned about Jesus than I was with finishing the correct choreography sans Baby. Rapping on the pilot of the L Word was my first ‘speaking’ role on a TV show – I think I was 21.
