Thanks for writing into us. Usually, architects do the work of interiors, but it leaves much scope for free-lance interior decorators. This is so because small jobs such as doing an office or a house would not be given to an architect. An aesthetic sense, colour combinations, a knowledge of art materials available from different States-these are the requirements of an interior designer. A person having a degree in home science or a diploma in interior design can look forward to a career in interior design. However, do not expect a full-time job in the beginning. A talent for such things is an essential pre-requisite for interior design. However, it is not merely art that is required; also needed is a sense of utilising available space for maximum benefit.

One can do a course in interior design from a polytechnic or a design institute. Those with formal qualifications, such as from a premier institute like the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad are rated higher. Ultimately, however, it is talent that matters. A course is also offered by Jenson & Nicholson division Interior-Exteriors in various cities. Other locations offering Interior Designing are:

JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Corporate Office, JD, Ruby Apartment, Near Vishal Hall, M.V. Road, Andheri (East), Mumbai- 400069

Indian Institute of Interior Designers, Sulbha Niwas, Pt. J. Purohit Road, Mumbai- 400016

SNDT Womens University, Nathibai Thakersey Road, Mumbai

The list provided to you is not exhaustive thus please confirm with the institutions
