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.

Interior Design vs. Interior Decorating

So you’ve decided to make a few changes at home, and you realize that you’re going to need a bit of help. You begin looking for possible services and find that some professionals describe their work as interior design while others are interior decorators. Suddenly you’re faced with new questions, namely, “What’s the difference?” And more importantly, “Which one do I need?”

This Addictive Home-Design App Lets You “Try On” New Decor

Shanna Tellerman wants to help you redecorate your home. She’s not a designer, furniture aficionado, or personal shopper. She’s the founder and CEO of a company called Modsy that rolls all of the aforementioned jobs into one mobile app to make redesigning a room easier (and more fun). Today, the year-old company is announcing the closing of a Series A round of $8 million led by Norwest Venture Partners, putting its total funding at $11.75 million.

Shanna Tellerman, cofounder and CEO of Modsy

How To Lay out A Narrow Living Room

We all wish we had perfectly shaped living rooms. Heck we all wish we had perfectly shaped everything. But often they are unique in size and shape but they might need some finessing. Meet the narrow living room – America’s most pervasive living room problem. Our Design Agony client, Hilary wrote to us asking for help with her narrow living room and here’s how we solved it:

I’m struggling with the layout of my living room, which is very narrow (like, 8.5′ wide from the wall to the fireplace surround). It serves as a main traffic thoroughfare through our house, and it’s tricky to make a cozy, welcoming layout that you can also walk through.

We’re really fortunate to have inherited a pretty amazing vintage modern furniture collection and some of those pieces are currently in that room – but I don’t know if they really work in there. We’d
