Secrets of an Interior Designer revealed

For my online course I interviewed countless experts in their field. One of them was an interior designer from Finland. To the question “How does an Interior Designer work”, she answered the following:


“Interior Design is all about creating a functional space that is safe and promotes ones well being. As a designer I make a lot of drawings, 3D adaptations and compose documents.



Me and my team always follow certain steps when starting a project. It goes like this:


🕐 We interview the client so we know exactly what they want. We ask them all kinds of questions about their dreams, their ideas and their challenges.


🕑 With the whole team we start brainstorming and come up with crazy ideas. Then we narrow them down into smaller ideas.


🕒 Based on those ideas we create 2 moodboards with different concepts. Within the moodboards we focus on atmosphere, colors and materials.


🕓 The client decides which moodboard they like best. Based on that decision we create a 3D model for the space.


🕔 After that we start making drawings for the floor-, lightning- and furniture plan.


🕕 The last step is the execution. This is when the concept and moodboard come to life!”
