More To It Than Just Having A Good Eye For Colours...
Interior designers have to be good with more than colour, fabric, and furniture; interior designers must know materials, have budgeting skills, communicate well, and oversee the ordering, installation, and maintenance of all objects that define a space.

They also have to know about electrical capacity, safety, and construction. This broader range of required knowledge distinguishes them from interior decorators.

Interior designers have to be able to work with contractors and clients alike, planning and implementing all aesthetic and functional decisions, from tap handles to km's of carpeting —and all this usually must be done within a fixed budget.

I Also Have To Be Practical...
Interior designers are often asked to begin their planning before construction of a space is finished; this means that they must be good at scheduling and comfortable reading building plans. This element of the job comes as a surprise to many new interior designers, who expect to have less of an administrative and technical role and more of a role in influencing the overall feel and appearance of a space.

Over the last 7 years I have designed and personally built (with my husband an electrician / builder by trade) our 500+m2 dream house here in Meadowbank, Auckland. This has given me 3 very valuable skills - the ability accurately visualise different spaces before actual construction, and then be able to draw a set of working plans, but then work with tradespeople to turn the vision in to reality...
