Interior design could be described as the process by which the interior of a building is decorated. However, it is also true to say that interior design takes conventional decorating to an entirely higher level. In terms of the process itself, interior design involves the precise consideration and coordination of each and every decorative element, within an interior space. From colour schemes to fittings to furniture to the very architectural features of the room itself, everything must be brought together cohesively in accordance with the designer’s vision.
As for the profession, interior design is a complex and multifaceted specialism that demands extensive technical and creative competences. It is the role of the interior designer to take what is an empty shell and transform it into a work of art. Along with the creative vision required to develop project proposals, the interior designer must also have a strong grasp of the practical duties involved in bringing their concept to life.
