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).

Interior design: The 8 most important principles

According to designer Joelle Nesen, “there are no rules” when it comes to interior design, but everyone can use a few tips and tricks. We spoke with Nesen, founder of the Portland-based firm Maison, and Jenny Guggenheim, of Guggenheim Architecture and Design Studio, to get their insights into the interior design process.

“If you do [interior design] well,” says Nesen, “you can do anything” in your space. To find home design nirvana, be sure follow these eight underlying principles.
