The interior design and architecture magazine Freshome released a great article about what it takes to become an interior designer, high end or otherwise.

While the post seems to be written mainly for those thinking about pursuing a career in the field, it also offers a wealth of knowledge for anyone making decisions about the interiors of their own homes or offices.

Some of the things you’ll find…

  • The difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator.
  • The real important stuff an interior designer needs to worry about (not always the most fun stuff).
  • What laws and codes you have to think about when getting your place designed.
  • Why high end interior design should always be about the clients’ style, not the designer’s.
