Katie Zamprioli is a Libra and interior designer, which happens to be an ideal Libran career (Libra is ruled by Venus and loves creating aesthetically pleasing environments). Katie caught up with The Scope to chat about gift giving, her awesome 6 year old son, and how she unwinds by listening to true crime podcasts.
What are your big 3 — Sun, Moon, and Rising signs?
Libra Sun, Virgo Moon, Capricorn Rising
Where do you live/where are you from?
I’m originally from Salisbury, MD but I’ve been in Los Angeles for almost 20 years now.
What do you do for work? Does your sign play into your career at all?
I’m an interior designer and a home decor influencer. Libras funny enough are always suggested as interior designers. We love finding the beauty in all things and creating aesthetically pleasing environments!
How, if at all, does astrology impact your daily life? Do you read your horoscope?
I do read my horoscope but not daily. I am into astrology and definitely think that my sign fits my personality to a tee.
What’s your favorite holiday? (Yes, your birthday counts as a holiday).
Christmas. I love the excitement and the feeling of love in the air and spending it with family.
We all miss parties, gatherings, and events of all sorts. If you could plan your ultimate shindig what would it look like? Who would be there? What would go down?
At this point in my life, I’m so happy to just spend time with the people that I’m the closest with. There are a lot of people I haven’t seen in awhile that I definitely miss a ton. I would have an outdoor party with amazing music and food and there would be lots of dancing and laughter!
What’s the most memorable gift you’ve given recently?
I found a vintage rock t-shirt for one of my best friends who had been looking for one for ages. I was so excited to give it to her! She had just given me an incredible gift for my birthday. She had a “Let’s Go Thrifting” necklace personalized for me and it was so thoughtful and sweet!
DOOZ partnered with Actually Curious to get to know Grace a little bit deeper. The following are a few questions from their thoughtful, question-based card game:
What were the holidays like for you growing up?
My Mom made every holiday so special. She really went all out for us with cooking and presents and special traditions.
What foods remind you of home?
Southern Foods. My Mom is from Kentucky so she makes biscuits and gravy and chicken and dumplings and amazing ham and bean soup. Also Blue Crabs because I’m from Maryland and there’s nothing like Eastern Shore Maryland Blue Crab!
I wish I could share _____ with human kind.
I wish I could share meditation with human kind. I think if everyone on the planet meditated daily, it would be a much more peaceful and happy place!
Imagine yourself in the future. What will your greatest life accomplishment be?
I think my son is my greatest accomplishment. He’s only 6 but he’s already such an amazing human. As far as career, I hope to continue what I’m doing and to grow exponentially each year. I love what I do; it’s very fulfilling being creative for work!
To wrap up the Actually Curious portion of this interview, a featured sign question: Libra – Who was your childhood crush, and where are they now?
Harrison Ford. 🤣 I totally fell in love with Indiana Jones. 🤷♀️
If you could give someone one DOOZ piece, who would it be and what would you give them? Would you pick their sign?
I would give my friend Sarah a Celeste Virgo bag. She’s very into astrology and I think she would love to have her sign!
Festive string lights or scented candles?
Early bird or night owl?
Someone hands you the AUX at a party, what do you play?
It would depend on the party and the vibe but I’m a big fan of 90s hip hop, Motown, indie music, 80s, 90s alt rock- I have very eclectic taste!
What’s your one beauty secret?
Good product! I’m a big fan of Drunk Elephant and use their products day and night. Drinking lots of water is also very important!
How would you style your DOOZ piece(s) for a night out?
The Sweater-T is so perfect for vintage high waisted Levi’s. You can dress it up or down with the right shoes, jacket and accessories.
If you were to select one color from the DOOZ celestial rainbow, what would your power color be and why?
I think my power color is actually green. It’s all around us in nature and I have so many plants in my home. It’s an invigorating and calming color!
How do you unwind/decompress at the end of the day?
I definitely have a hard time relaxing, I’m a bit of a workaholic. Usually I’ll watch a show or movie at the end of the day. I’m also a big fan of true crime podcasts. My Favorite Murder is my favorite. It doesn’t sound relaxing 😆 but for some reason it is.
Any given day is incomplete without…?
Coffee, coffee and more coffee.
What are your favorite DOOZ pieces and why?
The Sweater-Ts have a great fit, I love that the belts are reversible and the shape of the buckle, and the Céleste bag has such a cool shape!
