Interior Designer

Interior designers make interior spaces functional, safe, and beautiful by determining space requirements and selecting decorative items, such as colours, lighting, and materials.

Collaborative or Individual

Interior Designers work closely with the clients, architects, structural engineers, and builders to fully produce the space. They help each other determine how the interior spaces will function, be furnished, feel, and look.

Education

In North America, the educational standards are set by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA). The standards apply to students, what they must learn, and what is required to become a professional interior designer. Programs that meet the CIDA requirements offer a high and quality education, in addition to being considered reliable. The standards also address the facilities and learning environments, curriculum structure and other interior design elements.

When Interior Designers are just starting their careers, many choose to work with large interior design companies. However, when they gain more experience, some may go on to open their own businesses. Interior Designers may also work with architecture firms, real estate companies or manufacturers.

Interest

I am definitely interested in Interior Design, and it is my passion. The above picture is an example of my work. I used an online design program, and created this quaint space. I have loved design for as long as I can remember. I have been accepted to all of the design programs I applied to (yay!) and I will accept my offer to Sheridan's Bachelor of Interior Design program :)
