About Laurilyn

Laurilyn Hall joined the Art and Design faculty in 2010. A graduate of Bob Jones University, she completed her Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design in 2004. In 2014, she completed a Master of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture and Design from San Francisco’s Academy of Art University. In 2018, she assumed the role of Department Head supporting faculty in Apparel Design, Graphic Design, and Interior Architecture + Design.

Since joining the Art+Design faculty, Laurilyn has re-engineered the interior design BFA program and broadened its emphasis from traditional interior design to an integrated study of architecture and interior design. The Interior Architecture+Design  program connects the science of architecture and the art of design to meet a specific and highly-valued combination of skills for today's commercial and custom residential building industries. Graduates are recognized as leaders in a variety positions at architecture and design firms, and many are successful entrepreneurs.

In addition to her academic responsibilities, Laurilyn is the owner and principal at Thrive Interiors LLC designing interiors for homes and Greenville area businesses. Her long-standing collaboration with local Design-Build contractor Daniel Builders has garnered several award-winning projects receiving the prestigious Pinnacle Award (2020) and Bridge Award (2023) through the Home Builders Association of Greenville. Mrs. Hall is a member with the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).
