What is an Interior Decorator?

Interior decorating is a term that refers to the decorating and furnishing of interior spaces in homes, offices, and more. Working on what is referred to as a pre-existing space, you will spend your days working on creating dream spaces for your clients that can include indulgent master bedrooms, elegant bathrooms and perfect lounge rooms.
