Interior Design as a profession is relatively new. It is a field which is hard to separate from the field of architecture. Interior Designers have not only to observe taste trends and style evolution in the socio cultural context, but have also to understand and interpret customer’s needs and expectations, acquainting themselves with the problems concerning implementation of a design project which does not limit creativity and freedom of expression.
These skills are developed through deep sensitivity towards interior designing and a multi-disciplinary approach. Spatial inter-relationship is given due importance. The skill to organize space contributes to the improvement of environment.
