The World of Interior Design

Do you want to become an interior designer? It is an exciting and fulfilling career but has its fair share of challenges just like any other job. If you are passionate about design then choosing a pathway to interior design will allow you to express your artistic talent.

Many aspiring designers are not sure where to begin. Finding the right training and course to join is important as is keeping abreast of current trends and regulations. Then finding these jobs in the current marketplace is not easy but not as difficult as you may think if you know where to look and if you have the right tools.

Your curriculum vitae should be impeccable. It should provide an excellent summary of you as an interior designer so the potential employer can have a quick overview. You must remember that you need to sell your experience and skills in a clear and visually interesting way. You should accompany your resume with a portfolio that provides a platform of your design abilities and skills. Your portfolio should contain sketches, interior design concepts, mood boards, layouts, detailing and CAD work.

Next, make sure you build a credible network that you can contact and have them refer you to anyone who needs an interior designer. Build your network by signing up in the various social media platforms that are available in the Internet.

A great place to begin is LinkedIn where professionals meet and share their knowledge about a particular profession. It works similar to a professional organization. You could link up with professionals in the interior design industry and go to the jobs section where you could find job advertisements.

You will also find Facebook very useful in creating a network of potential employers and referees. It has a great feature where you have the option to create your own page about your job. Here you can market your skills extensively. It is a type of free advertisement and the sooner you take advantage of this feature, the sooner it will help you find jobs within interior design.

Another wonderful social networking is Twitter. With your Twitter account, you can reach millions of people in different parts of the globe within seconds. You can simply type something about yourself and mention that you are an interior designer looking to be hired. You will not believe the number of responses that you will receive.

Of course do not forget that you should register on online sites that are dedicated to advertising Interior Design jobs. Just send in your CV and portfolio so that they can contact you about job openings. Please view the job vacancies on this site and apply to those of interest or alternatively register at our agency and let us help you.

What It’s Like to Hire a Virtual Interior Designer

Free virtual interior design

It’s easy to become overly optimistic while hunting for a new home. Maybe it isn’t really as small as it looks! Maybe it will look brighter at a different time of day! Maybe it’s OK that there’s only 2 feet of counter space—you don’t cook that much anyway!

At least that’s what I thought when I signed a lease on a new apartment. Sure, it was smaller than my current place, but I live in New York—small apartments come with the territory. Then I got the keys, and panic set in. The open plan kitchen/living room barely seemed big enough for a couch, much less any kitchen storage or a table. We may not need a dining table, but we need a couch.

So I was delighted when I got an offer to try out Modsy, an online interior designer service that allows you to create a 3D virtual model of your space, then suggests products to furnish it with. (The company gave Mental Floss a free trial of its services.)

To start, I had to create an account and answer a few questions about the room in question, my design tastes, and whether I was adding just a few new pieces to a furnished room or starting from scratch. I uploaded eight photos of the room I wanted help designing, one taken from each side and each of the corners of the room. Then I put in the space’s measurements, submitted them to Modsy, and sat back for a few days while the company generated 360-degree renderings. Because I had yet to move any of the furniture into my apartment, I took photos of the empty room, but Modsy can also work with photos of your existing design layout—clutter and all.

Free virtual interior design

Two days later, I received an email from Modsy’s customer service department asking for a few more details: Was there any specific furniture I wanted modeled in, like a table or a TV? What’s the primary use of the space? How much seating was I looking for? A few hours after, I received an email telling me the designs were ready to view.

And there my apartment was, in a 3D rendering that was accurate in everything but how much cleaner and brighter it looked. There were two designs, each with a slightly different layout. In one, the couch sat against the wall and faced toward the open kitchen; in the other, the couch sat essentially inside the kitchen facing out toward the opposing wall. One was a largely white theme with a few accents and a clear coffee table; the other sported a gray couch and a wooden entertainment console. Both included a two-person dining table in the entryway, something I had long given up on having.

Free virtual interior design

In the virtual world, my apartment looked amazing. It was like a catalog, everything tasteful and perfectly placed and accessorized. There were artfully stacked piles of books and decorative mirrors. Two miniature coffee tables were situated with thoughtful asymmetry. There were beautiful plants that would immediately die in my real-life windowless room.

Still, the designs didn’t feel quite right. If I put the couch in the kitchen, we wouldn’t have any room to cook. We absolutely weren’t going to decorate our apartment in all-white furniture, given my roommate’s predilection for perching glasses in precarious places. We already planned on buying a kitchen island, and where would that go?

For a few extra bucks ($200 a room instead of the basic $70 package), you can get a one-on-one consultation session with the Modsy designer working on your space, so I chatted with Modsy designer Karina Lameraner in a phone session with a screen-share so that I could watch her play with my space in real-time from my laptop.

Free virtual interior design

I was upfront with her about my issues: I needed to incorporate a kitchen island, I didn’t want a white couch, and everything had to be able to withstand my cat’s regular pukefests. I also told her what I liked about the first designs: the bright pops of color, the couch set-up near the wall, the idea for two smaller coffee tables instead of one big one.

Most customers, Lameraner told me, upgrade to the live style session because they’re looking to get advice or see something different in their Modsy designs. “Home design is very daunting,” she says. “It’s kind of nice to be able to talk to somebody.” As it was, I could have taken bits and pieces of Modsy’s initial renderings and run with them—or asked for changes over email, which are included for free in your basic design package—but chatting in real-time was, in fact, nice, if not totally necessary.

For my space, she pointed out a few things I hadn’t noticed in the renderings, like a thin console against the wall behind the couch for placing drinks and other small items. She told me she would find the IKEA kitchen island I planned on buying and work it into my renderings. Mostly, I just watched her play around with my space. I mentioned the cat puke and the spills, and she swapped the light-colored rug with one made of jute, which she promised would be easier to keep clean. “Stay away from velvet,” she cautioned of my couch choices.

I admitted that I absolutely put my feet up on the coffee table, so I didn’t know how to handle glass-topped furniture. She introduced me to the idea of poufs, which can double as both footrests and informal seating. How did I feel about leather? She inserted a few options and moved them around. She suggested mixing and matching styles—“two of the same look a little, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s two poufs right there,’” she told me. I wouldn’t want to make anyone think “Two poufs! Right there!” So mix-and-match it is. I came away with some solid ideas about how to make the space both livable and Instagram-worthy.

Free virtual interior design

I’m in a stain-friendly IKEA furniture stage of my life, not a $1700 white couch stage. Plenty of the furniture on Modsy just isn’t going to happen for me. But I knew that going in, and wasn’t expecting to actually buy the exact furniture they suggested. There were plenty of takeaways from the experience that were more valuable than the specific products, since I planned to find similar furniture on the cheap elsewhere online, anyway. Mirrors and glassy tables open up small spaces. A few small tables instead of one big coffee table can give you somewhere to set your wine without completely blocking a middle-of-the-room doorway. I could probably fit a small dining table in my hallway. Maybe I could mount my television on a wall that’s not directly across from the couch.

And while most of the products modeled into my space were way beyond my price range, Modsy does draw from companies that are slightly less pricey than the distinctly out-of-reach-for-me Design Within Reach. There were Target products, too. If you don’t like the exact furniture initially included in your layout, there are suggested alternatives with slightly different looks, designers, and price points.

There were weaknesses in the experience, sure. While the product choices came with alternatives, you couldn’t filter those alternatives in any way, be it by type of material, color, or price. And the interface wasn’t always intuitive. It took me days to figure out how to hide the menu along the bottom of the window to see my renderings in full. You can’t read descriptions of the products, just dimensions.

Free virtual interior design

I don’t think that I, a stingy Millennial renter on a writer’s salary, am Modsy’s ideal client. It’s hard to say when I’ll move next, making me resistant to invest in the perfect furniture. Then again, if I wanted to hire a traditional interior designer, I wouldn’t even know where to start, and $80 and at most 15 minutes of taking pictures and answering survey questions isn’t a huge investment when it comes to hiring a professional.

If I owned my home or was living a more stable life where I planned to stay in one place for the foreseeable future, an online interior designer might be worth it. It certainly gave me a new perspective on my future living room, helping me solve spatial problems that had been baffling me for weeks as I stared at floor plans and thought, “Could two people use a single armchair as a couch?” Now, hopefully, I can figure out how to fit a whole sofa and still navigate my living room.

    Sometimes a no-brainer is nice. Like my fit-and-flare navy cotton frock with its matching skinny belt. Or if I m going to get the fries with my protein-style burger at In-N-Out (one glance through the window at the hypnotic potato-julienning aerobics, and it’s a given).

    And even a set of matching bed linens can be just fine. Or NOT.

    Maybe it s the drummer in my head, but I think home decor is a splendid place to twirl out of one s matchy-matchy comfort zone.

    Consider seating for meals, for example. In my generation (no calculations, please) you grew up eating three squares around a sturdy wooden oval, soldiered by its chair clones. Your parents pinched pennies for said solid maple, and for its casual (and I reckon more FABULOUS) cousin the dinette set clad in laminate and thigh-grabbing vinyl.

    Sets surrounded us. The kitchen. The dining room. All the bedrooms. Bath towels and fuzzy toilet-enveloping creatures. And then there were the matching outfits my sisters and I sported. (But that s another tale.)

    It was all perfectly coordinated for us. A no-brainer and no surprise. And while beautiful, quality sets surely still have their place, I think that s why now, I tend to avoid the MATCHIES.

    I was chatting with my friends over at Chairish, and they challenged me to put together some dining spaces that mix it up a bit. Where you can delight not only in your latest farmer s market creation, but in the curated color and life where you sit.

    And colorholic that I am, I went for it. Of course I tossed in a couple of my pillow designs. Enjoy my Style Boards below and let me know what you think in this post s comments!

    Here s an Eclectic Dining Room that mixes the colorful fun of Mid-Century, with the cushy comfort of proper armchairs. Wood and pottery for warmth, original art and pillows for POP and life.

    Next, I couldn t resist this Palm Beach Look, that admittedly isn t as much of a stretch with mixing up the furniture (same manufacturer). But it demonstrates how two chair-pairs add instant interest! Glitzy warmth in the artwork, a fun paint color, statement lighting and plants! Would Dorothy Draper approve?

    Interior design shops

    Finally, I hope some unexpected elements in this Artsy Chic Dining Room. (And clearly I still love my chartreuse!)

    Interior design shops

    Many of these pieces are still available over at Chairish. Just click the links below the photos.

    Chairish is a designer s (and a design-junkie s) dream really. An exclusive, curator-approved online marketplace for beautifully designed items, many of which are rare or one-of-a-kind. So if a piece I link to here is sold out, click to Chairish s main page or its dining chairs, tables or artwork pages.

    (And FYI, I get no compensation for Chairish items sales. Same on the artificial plants.)

    Art Deco Style

    Art Deco Graphic Design revolutionized print media and set a new standard for mass advertising.

    The invention of the printing press in the 1920s made it easy to mass produce books, newspapers, magazines and other literature.

    This huge demand for advertising dollars led to massive developments in the realm of Art Deco Graphic Design. Advertising agencies sprung up everywhere producing a variety of advertising media – posters, travel brochures, postcards, invitations. the list goes on.

    They all had the classic Art Deco look – streamlined, geometric and sexy as hell. To complement the imagery, a new font, was created which was more angular and straight than its cursive predecessor, Art Nouveau.

    Furthermore, as beauty and the ‘decorative aesthetic’ became increasingly important in all aspects of design, this style shift also affected Graphic Design. Where in the past, utility and functionality were enough, now beauty and style could not be ignored either.

    Product packaging, book jackets, billboards, building signs and other common objects had to reflect beauty, as well as functionality. The sentiment of the day was that “the street was the art gallery for the public” (Aynsley, 2003) and nowhere is this sentiment most obviously expressed, as in the area of Graphic Design.

    School of Architecture and Interior Design

    The School of Architecture and Interior Design (SAID) at the University of Cincinnati prepares students for critical practice. Our students engage with the principles, traditions, and requirements of building in all its aspects, interior and exterior. Our goal is to advance the professions of Architecture and Interior Design by combining ethical judgment, creative research and technical proficiency in pursuit of excellence. We seek to nurture a life-long world view that recognizes the designer’s responsibility to the environment, society, and the profession. Students are encouraged to take risks with their design ideas, and develop the skills to communicate them. The faculty and students of SAID strive to advance the discourse of environmental design, to respond effectively to change, and to integrate research with technical expertise.

    As part of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, the Interior Design program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Arts and Design (NASAD).
