For some people it is a longer journey, for others it comes more naturally. The most important thing is to take some time, open your eyes, walk around your home and absorb the colour combinations you see. Then start gathering all the pieces you love. This can be anything from old porcelain, travel souvenirs, photographs, artwork, clothes, tear sheets from magazines, fabric swatches, stationary, a collection of stones, feathers or glass objects.
3. Funding... Establish an Interior Design Budget. It is so important to identify a budget for your Interior Design Project. The cost for Interior Design can swing dramatically in price. Once you have established your budget, this will provide the needed structure, and will ensure your project is completed on time. Through the design process, new ideas will be introduced, which may raise your Interior Design budget. Many Interior Design projects are completed in phases. Most of us do not have unlimited funds. Clearly identifying the approximate cost of the entire Interior Design project, will give you the needed structure for this process.
One of my favourite books I spotted in a museum shop is called: How to be an explorer of the world by Keri Smith. On the back it says: \"At any given moment, no matter where you are, there are hundreds of things around you that are interesting and worth documenting.\" A stylist's tip: always carry a little notebook and a pen with you in order to be able to sketch, doodle and write down what you discover. Keep all your findings, notes and pictures in a folder or box and keep searching for at least four to eight weeks. Then start to group things by colour or theme and you will discover what your style is. And there are no rules. It is all about finding what you like!
So where would one draw the line between a designer and a decorator? Reverting back to the two definitions above one can discern the key difference. The definition for the designer refers to 'built interior environment' whereas the decorator suggests 'decorating and furnishing' as the key activities. The higher standard is the designer's ability and responsibilities to call for tearing out walls, flooring, windows, lighting, electrical, as well as recommending furniture and miscellaneous design pieces. In short, the scope their role includes the responsibilities of a decorator, but goes much further.
Summary. To summarize the differences: Interior Design involves the planning of all aspects of interior space often by a licensed professional. Interior Decorating involves the adornment of surfaces in the interior space. Interior designers may decorate, but interior decorators don't design. Home Staging is preparing the home for sale through updates and showcasing so that it appeals to the broadest range of buyers for the market that the home is in. Interior Redesign employs many of the same principles that home stagers use, such as primarily using what furniture and decorative accessories the homeowner already has, with an eye towards the future sale of the home.
