The art of Organizing & Designing spaces is not new to us. This space has been gaining ground post Agriculture revolution since the time we started settling down. One of the most stunning observation according to me is the concept of having a lawn (green grass) that occupies the front porch of Aristocracy during the medieval period. With a few researches, I came to understand that the same has been a symbol of Power, Nobility & Wealth. A river has flown down the Ganges with sense of aesthetics & organizing, adapting to a different ecosystem that prevails century after century. Welcome to the 21st century where style, aesthetics, organizing is a part or a reflection of a Universal appeal.

Life & Prospects in Interior Designing
One of the realities you need to understand is that Interior designing omits a structured path and a clear promotion based approach which is found in many other industries. One of the reasons, is due to diverse nature of this industry, importance of self-employment and its fit in the creative vertical. Making your own career has been the norm in this industry. Becoming an interior designer is not easy because of the partially closed nature of the industry.
Life for starters as interior designers is hard primarily for the fact that it takes a lot of time to build reputation and trust in this industry. The only guide during your formative years would be initiative, ambition, individual skill set & creativity. Life becomes more easy once you get through the formative years and establish your career prospects like starting up your own firm , taking up different projects, being hired by big architectural firms, the interior designers are in much demand to the boom in both infrastructure and urban planning.
Well, a large part of your life is spent in meeting with contractors, clients and suppliers with travel being your companion. One of my starting discoveries in this industry is the percent of time spent in each activity with 90% spent on networking, marketing, selling, developing the right contact, 7% spent on paper work and 3% on Design.
For those who are employed or seeking work, there are good opportunities and perks in this industry. A typical pay package for an assistant designer starts from 25000/ per month. The increase and perks shall depend on the number of projects involved and the cumulative years of experience. An annual package for a senior interior designer starts from 8 lakhs -20 lakhs including perks, bonus and commission. Besides the remuneration this is one industry which is both fun and creative. One of the most striking factors is the absence of monotony, with each project needs and requirements differ from client to client. The career is also rewarding because of the number of options which an interior designer can specialize in.
