Continuing the interior design theme from last week, host Grace Bonney brings in guest interior designer Amanda Gorski. Amanda tells us about how her attention to arrangement and presentation in her own home as a child influenced her introduction into the world of interior design. After the break, she and Grace discuss the difficulties inherent to the interior design world, and how to get by in the industry. This program has been sponsored by the International Culinary Center.

“There’s a lot that goes into [interior design] that you don’t learn working for someone else.” [6:15]

“It’s hard being younger in New York and on your own and in this industry where you kind of have to pay your dues in interior design before you can become a big name.” [23:15]
