Classy Hire: Basics of interior design

Design your home the right way by having it interior designed. Learn the basics of it here at Classy Hire. The basics of interior design is easy and it does not have to be expensive.

You do not need a fancy degree or professional qualifications. Just some common sense and a few good books and ideas. Interior designers, decorators and architects are great but… they are not necessary. If you learn the basics properly… You Can Design Your Own Interiors! The first thing you need to do is get yourself a copy of “Interior Designer Secrets – 101” by Lorraine Edmonds and Michael Edmonds. This book will give you all the basic tools and techniques you need to know to create a truly magnificent interior for your home. If you cannot find a book like this one in your local bookstore, ask your friendly neighborhood library if they have it. (They almost certainly will.) OK, now let’s say you have read “Interior Designer Secrets – 101” and you are ready to take the next step. The Edmondses suggest you get yourself a copy of “The Total Package – 101” which is another book containing basic interior design techniques. You should also get “How To Decorate On A Budget” by Robert Collier and “Decorating On A Budget” by Dorothy K. O’Brien. All of these books contain valuable insights.

Additionally, don’t worry about making your house a “warm” house. What this means is making sure all the different elements in your house have some type of commonality with each other. For example, your house should look like your family does. It should look like no one else’s family does. This concept is very important to remember and it’s something that seems to get forgotten by many people who hire an interior decorator. Interior decorators are skilled at what they do… but only when they are allowed to do it! All you need to do to bring out the best in a decorator is allow him/her to do his/her job. You see, there is a certain “je ne sais quoi” about a house that has been decorated by a homeowner and not by a “professional”. Of course, this is true whether the homeowner is doing the decorating himself or herself or has hired someone else to do the decorating for them. It’s like comparing a book written by an author with one where the words were written by another person. In the first case, it’s clear who the author is and what the book is about. In the second case (when the words were written by another person) it’s much more difficult to determine the author’s identity and what the book is about.
