Amber Lewis: Growing Pains & Industry Stardom
Noteworthy success is always the goal for an interior design business. But when a studio expands into a full blown lifestyle brand, the lines can blur when it comes to corporate structure. With an ever-changing industry and internal roles evolving to fill gaps that come with growing pains, managing who does what in each department can prove complicated. Today, I’m welcoming Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors to walk us through her studio’s structure after spending a decade as a top designer. We’re chatting all about repeat book deals, product licensing, and what comes next for an interior designer of her caliber.
