Important Job Skills for Interior Designers

If you love design, decor, and creating cohesive color schemes, interior design could be an excellent career choice for you. A designer is hired by individuals, companies, and real estate agents to decorate spaces, such as offices, living rooms, or bedrooms. They take into account a client’s taste, budget, and the space itself to come up with a look that matches the customer’s needs.

As of 2018, interior designers earned a median salary of about $53,470 per year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Job growth for the decade ending in 2026 is projected at 4%, which is one of the largest growth margins of all the artistic professions. For those willing to steer their interior design efforts toward commercial healthcare facilities, the projected growth is significantly higher.

According to BLS, about 20% of interior designers are self-employed, and more than half worked for specialized design firms

100 Brick Wall Living Rooms That Inspire Your Design Creativity

Brick walls and modern interiors – one would imagine that they would be at odds with one another. But the last few years have seen architects and homeowners gravitate towards the beautiful brick wall whenever they need a touch of texture, unique character and a dab of timeless charm sprinkled in the living room. For some, the exposed brick wall in the living room is an expression of the rich, historic past of the building and a blend of the past and the present. For others, it is a way to add elegance and personality to an otherwise boring interior dominated by glass and stone. No matter what your reason is, there is no doubting the fact that brick walls are here to stay.

This Vibrant Yellow Space Is So Much More Than a Guest Room

A sewing room. A home gym. A study. A soon-to-be-music studio. Squeezing all that into one humble guest room is a tall order, but Claudia Dorsch made it happen with the help of a few smart additions. “Before she came along, this room was a dump!” says homeowner Kat, who brought on the designer to upgrade the Hampstead Heath home she shares with her husband and three kids. “It had piles of clothes, baby toys, and a huge bed from our previous flat, plus spare mattresses and various pieces of furniture that didn’t fit the space.”

After clearing everything out and slicking on a coat of Farrow & Ball’s Babouche as the vibrant backdrop, Dorsch got to work. Bulky ski equipment (the bedroom moonlights as an extra closet in its spare time) is tucked neatly away in the bed’s base; a sculptural pendant from British brand Original BTC delivers

Remote Design Students Turn Attention to a New Medium: Masks

There’s not much that COVID-19 hasn’t impacted in some way. 

But Matt Bonvino ’20 is somewhat familiar with transition. He started at Bethel intending to go into medicine, but three years in, took an art class and fell in love. He’s since made the official switch to a studio art major inspired creatively, in part, by experiences he had as a kid going to museums with his family. 

“Those designs made a giant impact on me,” he says, adding that he’s hoping to pursue a career in museum fabrication or some kind of kid-centric design after graduation. This spring, he’s gaining practical experience as a warehouse and production volunteer at Gemini Athletic Wear in Edina. But work came to a screeching halt as sports seasons were cancelled and games postponed in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

As he began seeing reports of hospitals overcrowding and the medical world struggling to

Bright Wall/Dark Room April 2020: The Contradictory and Complementary Visions of Wes Anderson and Roald Dahl by Ethan Warren | Features

The great mystery, however, is what Roald Dahl might have made of the best film ever adapted from one of his books, the film that left his work more intact than any other while simultaneously inverting its perspective and retrofitting it to align with one of the most distinctive voices in modern American film—a voice that might appear entirely dissimilar to Dahl’s but may yet be a kindred spirit in the subtlest and most significant of ways.

Virtually the entire plot of Roald Dahl’s 1970 novel Fantastic Mr. Fox is faithfully represented in Wes Anderson’s 2009 cinematic adaptation. At the novel’s outset, three farmers—Boggis, Bunce, and Bean; one fat, one short, one lean—have grown exasperated with the namesake carnivore, who routinely pillages their storehouses in order to bring home food for his family. The farmers execute a vicious mechanical assault on the Fox burrow, driving the family deep underground.
