Important Job Skills for Interior Designers

If you love design, decor, and creating cohesive color schemes, interior design could be an excellent career choice for you. A designer is hired by individuals, companies, and real estate agents to decorate spaces, such as offices, living rooms, or bedrooms. They take into account a client’s taste, budget, and the space itself to come up with a look that matches the customer’s needs.

As of 2018, interior designers earned a median salary of about $53,470 per year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Job growth for the decade ending in 2026 is projected at 4%, which is one of the largest growth margins of all the artistic professions. For those willing to steer their interior design efforts toward commercial healthcare facilities, the projected growth is significantly higher.

According to BLS, about 20% of interior designers are self-employed, and more than half worked for specialized design firms

Decorating Styles- Discover Your Decorating Style

Do you have any idea about what decorating style you like?

Of all the things that we learn while going through so many years of school, what decorating style we’d like to see in our living room or what era of furniture would best complement the layout of our bedrooms usually isn’t one of them.

When it’s your home, everything hinges on what you like and in the end, only you can say whether the result is something that you’ll be happy living with. It’s always easy to tell whether or not you like something but sometimes it can be very difficult to say for sure what you like or why.

That’s one of the reasons why

Design Ahead featured on the
cover of Get-It Magazine (Ballito-Umhlanga, May). A home recently re-decorated
by Design Ahead was selected as the location for the photo-shoot. The house had
been on the market several times, with no serious offers. The owners wanted a
stylish modern look to update the interior of the home. The make over had the
desired affect – the house sold, fully furnished, shortly after the re-vamp.

    Design Plan: Our New Family Room

    Excuse the brevity of this post but I really want to share the design plan for our new family room because it features The Everygirl’s furniture collection with Interior Define and those pieces are currently 15% off – ending today!

    Here it is! The design plan for our new family room. We’re going to live right by family and friends and this room opens up to the kitchen. It will be where we spend the most time and entertain, so the goal is to maximize seating and coziness for frequent hangouts.

    I’d really love a full corner sectional as opposed to a chaise sectional simply to have more seating, but we’re not sure yet if it will fit so we are waiting to get in and measure. But I plan on doing a sectional version of the Caitlin sofa in Oatmeal Heathered Weave fabric which actually looks a bit lighter
