Imagine having a rewarding, high-paying job that lets you use your creativity to make homes and businesses more beautiful, comfortable and effective.

There are few jobs that offer so many benefits. As an interior designer and decorator (also known as an interior architect) you will have the satisfaction of making your vision a reality.

If you start your own interior design and decorating business you will enjoy the freedom of being your own boss and could earn $100,000 or more per year. And perhaps most importantly your interior design and decorating “work” will be fun, interesting, and personally rewarding.
