After the Jump: Interior Designer Amanda Gorski

DESIGNSPONGE_AMANDAGORSKI_RADIO
This season’s radio theme is interior design, so this week I sat down with interior designer Amanda Gorski. We’ve been working with Amanda on our office makeover and it was a great chance to learn more about her background, how she discovered design and what defines her style. I had a blast getting to know her better and hear how she translated her skills in PR and communications (her original majors in college) to interior design. From learning to manage contractors and budgets to managing client expectations, Amanda has tackled all sorts of design challenges and created some beautiful spaces that reflect her love of independent design. I love any designer that works with local designers so much, so I’ve really enjoyed watching her include some of our favorite Brooklyn makers in her finished rooms. I hope you’ll enjoy her interview as much as I did- I found her insight on trends and client expectations to be fascinating. I think the way the web has opened up design has made clients more savvy and capable and it’s all leading to interior design becoming a more exciting, open-minded and diverse field. Thanks so much to Amanda for joining me and thanks for listening! xo, grace

“There’s a lot that goes into [interior design] that you don’t learn working for someone else.”

@Megan – ack I didn’t know that! I came across the Stencil Boss site while looking for stencils. I just remembered it was on the site, I never actually purchased the stencil (thankfully)

Amanda, your work is fantastic!! Just checked out your portfolio and am in love. Your background is very similar to mine. I’m in marketing for school but love interior design, ever since I was a kid. Just recently I decided to get some experience in the industry and see where it leads me!

Amanda, I love your style. Especially the wallpaper and the swinging wall lamp over the dining table – have been looking for one just like it. Can you share where you sourced it? Thanks!
