Day in the Life: Interior Designer

“Visiting a client’s house and seeing how they are living in these spaces after I am done, it’s very fulfilling. –Soledad A.

“Interior designers make interior spaces functional, safe, and beautiful by determining space requirements and selecting decorative items, such as colors, lighting, and materials. They read blueprints and must be aware of building codes and inspection regulations, as well as universal accessibility standards.

Employment of interior designers is projected to grow 4 percent from 2014 to 2024, slower than the average for all occupations. … Employment of interior designers in specialized design services firms is projected to grow 8 percent from 2014 to 2024.” — US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics

    Thank you guys so much for this series! As someone who has a lot of different interests, being able to hear & SEE detailed information about a career from someone who is living it is extremely helpful, and is also a time saver!

    I also REALLY appreciate the honesty in these videos! Revealing the less talked about aspects or skills that may not necessarily be addressed while getting a degree, but are nonetheless part of the job, really helps give a better picture of the reality of what the career might be like.

    Thank you guys! Keep up the good work!
