Professor Cervone, what makes a successful Interior Designers? In addressing what makes a successful Interior Designer stems from a desire and natural talent for art and design and solid education in interior design.
As a Professional Interior Designer, you are being judged by your ability to perform. Why do I say this because it’s like being on stage. Everything you do is always viewed by your peers as well as your clients.
Consequently, your talent ,your understanding , the execution of a project, from the moment you begin it is judged in how successful you can be as a professional interior designer.
