JUPITER, Fla. — A Jupiter sixth-grade student, who attends the Bak Middle School of the Arts, will be in the national spotlight this Sunday on NBC's "Little Big Shots."

Graham Gilbert, 11, has his eye on design and is captivating some of the industry’s most well-known interior decorators.

He has also made a splash on Instagram with his chats with designers at the Kips Bay Show House in Palm Beach.

"It's really amazing. If you had asked me about a year ago if I would be featured on 'Little Big Shots,' I would have told you, you were crazy. But now it's all here," said Gilbert in an interview Friday with WPTV.

Graham has already been featured in House Beautiful and Architectural Digest.

He says his passion for interior decor began when his mother started working at an interior design firm about a year-and-a-half ago.
