Life of an Interior Designer

Life of an Interior Designer

Have you always seen an Interior Designer receiving compliments on their designs? Or have you seen your daughter or your friend or eventually you yourself liking to decorate interiors of your home or go help a friend. 

If yes then you should know what is it like to have a life of an Interior Designer. Before you make a life-altering career choice or assumptions about someone’s design , there are some things you should know about this design world. 

Interior designers face challenges every day; some of these may not appeal to you, while others may excite you and open doors to a career that you never thought was possible.
It may seem obvious, but in order to become an interior designer, you need to have an innate flair for color, spatial arrangements, architecture, designs and textiles. 

Living as an Interior Designer, you need to know a lot of information on architectural elements, building materials, ergonomics, anthropometric, and many more.  An Interior Designer can design an entire house or a small condo and have it built really well!

Many people think of Interior Designers as simply decorators.  And yes, that can be a big part of their role.  But they can also draw up house and make demolition plans, they know how to use AutoCAD and 3D Rendering Software. These things take a lot of skill to master and can be very useful in their day to day life. 

Personally, I have found there to be many advantages to being an Interior Designer so far but also some disadvantages.  So if you’re thinking about an Interior designers work or would want to take it as a career, here are some things to consider about :

• You learn how to draw properly. This can actually be taught and you can be a decent artist.
• You learn how to successfully use impressive software that can be useful as a designer.  
AutoCAD is not easy to learn – but once you know it, its a great space planning tool for even your own home.
• You can help your friends out – and get great references.  
Everyone can use a designer once in their life, and good friends are usually willing to recommend you. 
• You can get great deals from many different suppliers and retailers. 
• You can start to have great contacts with quality contractors and tradespeople.
• You learn a lot about project and client management.  
• Your constantly tempted by beautiful designs and decor.  Its our job to stay on top of trends, retailers, sales, and more.  

A successful interior designer is a people pleaser and sometimes a mind reader — someone who can steer clients toward a favorable outcome while making them feel they are in full control of the design choices. Interior designers are constantly balancing their design decisions and their clients’ desires. Hence concluding, It’s not a cakewalk, to say the least.

Interior design is all about designing and execution, it also makes you feel blissful in your environments. Design can change your mood through color, texture, light, scent, and sound. Home designed for all these aspects shows us how an environment can best be designed to evoke a positive instinctive reaction from anyone experiencing that space. Another important element of interior design where it is necessary to take infinite pains is details. When designing or decorating a home it’s always key point to pay attention to small details. Of course, the other elements like the color scheme or some particular theme or the chique furniture are also important but it’s mainly the minute details that make the difference between a fun home and a boring one. When we say small or little details it doesn’t necessarily refer to the actual size of the objects. Such detail can also consist in the texture or color. Colors have a definite impact on the atmosphere that you want to create when doing inte…


Accessorizing is really an art, nothing adds more elegance to your space like accessorizing does. It can be defined as the soul of our home decor, which can easily break or make the room.   Accessories can be a narrator when everything is displayed in a manner. It can narrate a whole lot about your lifestyle and even your personality. Whether you owe an old accent decor sculpture or you buy a fancy piece of art, there is an apt way to expose your accessories. But quite often they are neglected or simply ignored!   Accessorizing is not only about decorating your space with few cushions, a rug or coffee table. A pictorial wall could be an eye-catching point for a huge wall or a blank space, this could be achieved by adding some highlighter frames in middle of the entire art-work, to create a pop-up effect along with the rhythm. The key to a sinful accessorizing skill is doing what feels natural to you, with a belief to harmonize your space.  Well, Interior Design experts can help you sh…
