The queen of design has a new gig!
But the philosophy behind her latest business endeavor might surprise you. â€śItâ€™s just like a dating app,â€ť says Gorder. â€śThey want the cutest girl on Tinder and they want the most beautiful house on AirBnB or whatever app theyâ€™re using.â€ť
Gorder adds they arenâ€™t exclusively working with any one platform.
In the first season of her show, Gorder takes on eight properties scattered across the United States including locations in Austin, Palm Springs, Seattle, Washington D.C., New York, and California.
After redesigning each property, â€śIâ€™ve gotten calls from every single homeowner telling me theyâ€™ve been so booked up that they had raised their rates,â€ť she says. â€śSome are even making so much money that they have purchased three or four other properties.â€ť
Seeing all the success homeowners were having with her makeovers inspired Gorder and her fiancĂ© Rich Emberlin to start their own short-term rental in Savannah, Georgia.
â€śThe plan is to have many, many properties,â€ť she says.
