yo so like i want to be an interior decorator. how would i start my career
I've always been passionate about home decor. so much so that sometimes when i go to IKEA i rearrange the home models into something a little more "fung suei". i feel as if i could make a lot of homes FABULOUS and help a lot of people bring some culture into their homes, but i have no idea where to start

What is your education background? What type of ID are you interested in? The amount of school and experience in the field will play a big part in how hard it is to find employment. I suggest finding ID internships while in school and creating/maintaining an interesting portfolio of work demonstrating your design aesthetic and technical skills. Make sure to save examples of your work from each employer/internship - keep copies/documentation!!!
Tyneir recommends the following next steps:
- Find an accredited 4 year program or at least obtain a degree or certificate to get you started. However a 2 year or certificate will only get you so far - but may be sufficient for what you want to do.
- Perhaps you should apply to Ikea...that would probably be great design and visual merchandising experience!
