WHAT IS INTERIOR DESIGN?
Interior design is more than just aesthetics. It’s about finding creative design solutions for interior environments while supporting the health, safety and well-being of occupants and enhancing their quality of life.
Following a systematic and coordinated methodology including research, analysis and integration of knowledge into the creative process, interior design is a multi-faceted profession whereby the needs and resources of the client are satisfied to create an interior space that fulfils the project goals.
