What are the daily duties of an interior designer?

Dealing primarily with interior spaces, interior designers use design principals and an understanding of aesthetics to transform spaces into something functional and stylish. They collaborate with clients on creative briefs to ensure the spaces meet the needs and taste of their client. They create design and style concepts that work with architectural plans, help select colour schemes and create moods for rooms. Once they have confirmation of the overall concept, interior designers source or commission furniture, artwork, painting, furnishings, and fixtures, within the project’s budget.
