Genevieve Gorder QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And Laurens, it definitely made me want to go on to the next region and the next region - because it's very much a cultural study.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
And the relationships that happen become so intense, deep, involved and complex and really hard to say goodbye to. The hardest part of the show is saying goodbye when it's all done. It really breaks you.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
Being on Oprah? You realize that there are a couple of types of audience members. There are like the cult people in the audience who are just crying before she gets on. And then there are the people who are playing it cool. I definitely was somewhere in the middle.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
But instead of that stuff you get relationships with people and neighbors that you would never get in a city. People in small towns are a lot more open.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
Design can have such a positive impact on the way people live and on their relationships and moods.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I actually would not switch lives with a fish thrower again, nor a 19-year-old because it's not far enough of a stretch. I grew up fishing and my brother is 19.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I grew up in Minneapolis and then I've been living in New York so I haven't really lived in a small town per say.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I had been to the South many times and I thought I knew what the South was, but not until you live with people and live through their lives do you know what it's really about.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I had the idea for the show like a year and a half, two years ago. And it was all about the things that I didn't like about TV. I was trying to create a positive solution for it. And it actually worked.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I think people come to visit these towns not to see the design, but to see the people who live there, so this has a definite real-world aspect.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I think taking design out of the studio and really having a relationship with the people that you're making it for really convinced me of how powerful a thing design is. It's not just an aesthetic decoration.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I think that, in comparison, New Yorkers and Northerners are so guarded.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I think we typically, as Northerners, stereotype what the South is in so many negative ways. We kind of forget all the beautiful things that they contribute to make this country a country.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I will not do work that isn't done well or right. Stuff happens - things break, contractors don't come through - but I don't want to be responsible for not doing something correctly.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I'm a designer, I love it, and I haven't worked this hard to do bad work.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I'm lucky enough to have a really positive following, and I'm so grateful for that. It's a fantastic platform to launch a new show from.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I'm opening a store at the end of the month in the New York meatpacking district. I'm launching a line of bedding this summer, and I am writing a book that will be out next January.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
I'm so used to talk-show hosts just giving you a sound bite and not really being interested.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
It's about the power of design and the power of the human spirit. It's above paying anybody to do something stupid for money like reality television does - like ambushing people.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
It's not about doing over the living room of someone who has bad taste in color. This is about restoring historic buildings and instilling pride in a community, which can be done through designing new public spaces and social gathering spots.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
It's what I do from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed. Whether I'm on vacation or not, I see everything.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
Like I said, TLC has enough of my life. I have to keep some of it for myself.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
Oprah has this intense curiosity that I haven't found with any interviewer.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
So by the end of this series, I'll probably have like 40 houses - and be broke - around the country, because you get so attached emotionally.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
So, like I said, I will visit Jeffersonville more often because I now have a little getaway house up there.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
So, to really execute design in its highest form and making people feel joy, that's a great reward.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
That was always my frustration with so many of these shows, because design is not an ambush... it's a relationship. You have to know how people move and live and work to be able to design for them.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
That's the best thing I like about the show is that from concept to execution, it works. People actually like it and it's helping people.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
The birth of any show is always a rough one.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
The Deep South has a completely different history, both good and bad, that is fascinating for everybody. It makes people work together who usually don't, and that sounds like a cliche in so many ways, but it actually happened... and it happened because of a beautiful idea.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
There's a big difference between decorators and designers and the training is very different.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
We worked out a lot of bugs and figured out who was working and who wasn't and how this beast functions. It was a lot bigger than we actually thought, and now we have a well-run ship where it feels I can actually have time to imagine and not just stress out about everything.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
You forget how many people watch TV until you come into a town like this. Everybody knows you, and I'm always humbled, especially when there are 500 little kids who all have their hair done like yours and want to be designers.
Quotation of Genevieve Gorder
You need to have a home to go back to, whether it's a hotel room or a barn. It's only home when he's there.
