Interior Decoration Resources

Interior Decoration Resources

A vast subject that is part of the interior design industry, interior decoration is the visually aesthetic side of interior design. Although we use interior design for spacial planning and the proportions of the room are aesthetically pleasing when designed professionally and to particular techniques (eg the golden mean), decoration more often than not refers to color, texture, fabrics and furnishings.

To be an interior decorator requires a great deal of knowledge and skill especially about color and furnishings and being fluent with what product is available on the market. The two terms interior designer and interior decorator seem to have become very mixed up over the years that the industry has evolved however I believe that an interior designer practices interior architecture and then uses interior decoration to finish their design while an interior decorator concentrates directly on the decorative side of the interior.

Many countries have different definitions through their professional bodies and those that have qualified as an interior decorator or interior designer and practice as such. I have also found that many interior designers become quite concerned with those practicing decoration calling themselves interior designers. Really it shouldn’t be an issue as an interior decorator is not usually trained in construction, services, architectural proportion or the building codes that allow an interior designer to alter the interior of a building, including structural elements such as walls or services such as plumbing and electrical. In fact those that are true interior decorators don’t want to be involved in the structural aspects and building codes and prefer to work on the visually and textural stimulating decorative elements within a building and they specialize in that. I have no doubt that the interior decorator will become a specialist career versus the interior designer’s specialty as the design industry further evolves.
