Celebrity Interview: FORD Model Turned Interior Designer Ryan White

Happy New Year, everyone! I must say, that was a much more extended break than I had planned. It’s just so hard to get back into the swing after the holidays…I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that. For me, it’s much easier to manage my work routine when my kiddo’s in school, and today was the day, so let’s get to it!

I can think of no better/easier way to dip my toe back into the working world than to share my latest interview for Williams-Sonoma Designer Marketplace. Ryan White, a former FORD model, stumbled into a career as a highly sought-after interior designer about two years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed interviewing him for this piece–and clicking through will give you another chance to LOOK AT HIM. They don’t put fugly dudes in magazine ads.

Ryan has enjoyed a swift, meteoric rise in the interior design biz and he has some interesting things to say about how he’s managed to build an enviable level of demand for his services in such a short time. If you’ve ever struggled with fear or confidence in your own profession, you’ll want to read this as you prepare to take 2014 by storm!
