Career in Interior Designing courses

Just like a sculptor gives shape to clay, carves and moulds it, an interior designer defines space to give it meaning, achieves harmony and lends it aura. All this with an application of the three basic principles of interior design – color, scale and proportion.
Since interiors are an extension of one's personality, an interior designer has to essentially be a people’s person. Designers need to understand attitudes, lifestyles and cultural preferences, and take all three into account in their designs. In addition, they have to keep in mind the hobbies and habits and lets not forget the budget (good taste need not necessarily be expensive) of the person they are designing for.
Interior designing colleges provide designing courses ranging from 3 - 5 years. You can specialise in doing interiors for theatres, art galleries, and sets for various events, exhibitions and window displays. Landscaping and interior designing based on Vaastu / Fengshui principles are other emerging fields an interior designer can explore.
If you are artistically inclined, have a good taste in furnishings, a keen eye for objects and accessories, terracotta pots, candle stands, paintings and bits and pieces of furniture that create an ambience, do give this career option a thought.
