EXPERT ADVICE EXPERT ADVICE True Colors In her cheery Upper East Side office, designer Amanda Nisbet offers insight on her life and career I Written by Robert Leleux Photography by Patrick Cline Art Direction by Michelle Adams n leading shelter magazines, Amanda Nisbet’s interiors are routinely described as warm, elegant, and bright, adjectives that apply equally well to her character. Indeed, Nisbet’s aesthetic—as seen in such coveted venues as the Kips Bay Decorator Show House—is conveyed with such naturalness that it isn’t surprising to learn that she’s entirely self-taught. Her talent, she says, is something in which she’s always had confidence, even if her decision to pursue design professionally was only reached after great deliberation. This month, Nisbet offers Lonny a tour of her Upper East Side design office as well as advice on overcoming obstacles, honoring your gifts, and finding your true calling. L The walls of Amanda Nisbet’s office are lined with inspiration boards featuring vividly hued textiles of her own design, available through Holland & Sherry. 2012 MARCH APRIL 68 Lonny MARCH • APRIL 2012 • Lonny 69
