Here are some tips for those of you considering the field of Interior Decorating/Design: First thing first- If you're going into this field know the difference between an Interior DESIGNER and an Interior DECORATOR. You cannot call yourself an Interior Designer without accreditation, in certain States/Provinces you can be fined for this. Second- you'll never do mood boards for clients if you're professional- you may get the odd client ask for one, but don't go into a meeting with a mood board unless you're in school and or presenting to a large group...It's all about renderings- get to know AUTOCAD or Sketchup Pro. Know your stuff! I worked for five years in a paint store selling paint, stain, wallpaper, furniture, blinds, fabric, custom drapery etc...It has elevated my ability to give sound advice, and clients respect that and seek me out because of that. I also worked for a year in a high-end tile store, designing bathrooms and kitchens with other designers and retail clients. This taught me a lot about harder textiles- including tile application, trims (Schluter) and what looks good together and what doesn't. It's also super beneficial to have a customer service background. It will only help your career. I find that's where people lack skills, not in design aesthetic, but knowing how to handle clients-specially difficult ones- and build a rapport with your clients. Learn building codes, and how to read blueprints. Also, I see a lot of Designers/Decorators with really bad math skills- learn how to calculate sqft and how to take measurements. I also find knowing how to calculate yardage required for fabric projects and wallpaper a helpful tool. Its made things easier for me. You're never going to graduate and be a full-on Designer/Decorator right out of the gate, so you might as well work part-time in a place where you're going to learn practical skills that will only help you in your career. Look at local decorating stores like paint stores, window covering stores, furniture etc. I also worked in Film as a set decorator, it wasn't glamorous at all- and the days were very long- I wouldn't recommend this path unless you're okay with being married to your career. I'm 31 now and I spend my entire twenties educating myself and setting myself up for a successful career by continuing with my education even after graduation. Only now am I able to finally work full time (comfortably) as a designer- which is rare in my city. Those of you looking to start upon graduating, try and get into work with a big builder/contractor company. Oh! And Network, network, network! Best of luck XOXO

Stephanie Garcia (1 month ago)
I LOVE Mr. Kate and her creativity, BUT this video is deceptive: Mr. Kate's father is the CEO of STARZ and a multi-millionaire. She has more resources and connections in the industry than many of us will ever have. Not to diminish her talent at all, because she is amazing. Just pointing out that it is not as easy as she makes it sound, especially to become an actual licensed designer. That requires years of school and interning. To say that I can wake up tomorrow morning and call myself a interior designer without education is not only delusional, but it is illegal. Again, I don't want to come off as sounding like a hater, this is just a disclosure before you quit your job and move to LA.

Siri Hanson (1 month ago)
Hey Mr. Kate! I really love you and everything you do, but this is really frustrating as an Interior Design student. There is a widespread misunderstanding that interior decorating and interior design are the same thing, and they’re not. To become an actual licensed interior design you need to have 4 years of education in a CIDA accredited program and two years of workforce experience before you can even take the certification exam that is multiple days long. Please consider this when you call yourself an interior designer!
Roquell Millington (8 days ago)
+Siri Hanson no one is "using" anything you say for any agenda whatsoever! Interior designers DO NOT structurally design a space or building, there are contractors and architects who work along with them who are responsible for the structural integrity of a space. The interior designer may contributed creatively to the overall design of a space, but they don't execute that on their own. Hence my very remark about the chandelier as your point about public 'safety " is a reach!! In my previous comment I intentionally mentioned that my opinion on this has to specifically do with interior design and other such creative fields, so your doctor point is well...pointless! I mean she very clearly explained the difference between an interior designer and decorator, which is in fact the KEY difference between the two. That's it! We do not agree and that's all good! Have a blessed day!
Siri Hanson (9 days ago)
Roquell Millington hang a chandelier too loose? Lol so that’s my point, that’s where these misconceptions are in play. If you think hanging a chandelier is interior design, then you’re really mistaken. By your argument doctors don’t have to go to med school, and lawyers don’t have to pass the bar. You are diminishing the value of this profession because you’ve still got decorating and design as the same thing in your head. Nothing else for me to say to convince you, but don’t use my comment as a way to devalue the importance of title acts and accreditation and the values they play, and the profession of interior design as a whole. Enough said.
Roquell Millington (9 days ago)
+Siri Hanson public safety? What's she gonna do hang a chandelier too loose? OK. Her being qualified is at the very least "debatable" especially in this field. In today's day and age, there's no such thing as "trade secrets" anymore. We are in the age of free education and anyone with the drive and passion can be just as "qualified" as the one who spends years and thousands to be "certified" Really antiquated!
Siri Hanson (9 days ago)
Roquell Millington “the almighty dollar...” of course the education system and and paying large quantities to further your education is flawed in many ways, but my point is she just isn’t qualified because she hasn’t gone through that extensive education. It is literally a matter of public safety, which is why the accreditation exists in the first place. You wouldn’t want random people who just call themselves architects building the massive buildings you step in to and take for granted that it is safe. It is the same for interior design (often called interior architecture), but because of the misconception that interior design and interior decorating are the same thing, people don’t tend to understand that. These regulations and accreditation laws don’t exist simply to place people on a higher pedestal because they paid- they exist because it is a matter of public health and safety. And the whole point of my initial comment was to try and bring to light these profound differences, and with that people can chose the path that suits them the best. Nothing was ever said to diminish Mr. Kate and all her and her team do.
Roquell Millington (9 days ago)
+Siri Hanson and there you said it...always comes down to the Almighty dollar! Unless people get sucked into a system to shell out cash to learn from a formal school institution then their skill, equal and sometimes superior to those who do is diminished! Like I said... Semantics and we need to move on from this!
breannaelaine21 (1 month ago)
I'm sure someone else said this already, but your definition of interior designer vs. decorator is absolutely incorrect. An interior designer has education, accreditation and a thorough knowledge of legal building codes in the state in which they practice. An interior decorator does not require an education. Both are great but it's like a nurse and a doctor, if you are a nurse you shouldn't call yourself a doctor.
Tatiana Costa (1 month ago)
As an interior DESIGN student MYSELF I beg you to stop calling yourself a designer just cause it sounds better. You are NOT an interior DESIGNER! You're a decorator!
Tatiana Costa (5 days ago)
+Roquell Millington that's the thing. We won't be doing the same. Interior DESIGN is not interior DECORATION. There's a lot more to it than decorating a space. My problem lies exactly in the education of the public who ear her saying she's a designer and believe design is the same as decorating. And for that they won't even consider hiring a designer for the work they need and will go to someone else. Because they don't realize our education isn't on choosing furniture or picking color combinations for their house. It's actual architectural and actual designing of every little detail that goes into making a space. It's solving problems not hiding it and making it look good. I am not criticizing her work, it's as much valid as mine or an architect or an engineer or even the painter and builders. But they're not the same.
Roquell Millington (9 days ago)
No wonder y'all salty! I guess she's naturally talented and went after her dreams! You could all be like her if you wanted yo but hey! You'll be doing exactly what she's doing... That makes her an Interior designer. Period

I never comment on anything but I have to agree with everyone who says she is an Interior Decorator NOT a designer. I am currently a Landscape Architecture student and it is also illegal to call yourself one if you don't have a degree from an accredited program or a State License. Mr. Kate is an extremely talented decorator and creates amazing spaces, but she really shouldn't call herself an Interior Designer.
johnny cat (20 days ago)
Kaetlyn McDonnell it is Not illegal. Anyone can say they are a designer they just can’t say they are accredited. .
Kaetlyn McDonnell (1 month ago)
Hey, I completely agree with you. I am an interior design student right now and while I love Kate’s decorating, she does not have the legal accreditation to be a legitimate Interior Designer. As an interior designer you must pass intensive exams about following architectural codes, ergonomics, and space planning, as well as picking functional and aesthetically pleasing materials for a space. While it is not as technically intensive as architecture school (that focuses on the structure of a building) It entails four years of learning all of the said information above as well as all the computer programing skills like Autocad, Revit, Lumion, Sketchup and more. I love mr kate, but I have to say that she would never be hired by a firm or be a design lead for a firm because of lack of credentials and schooling.

Im in school for interior design & we barely decorate its all about making floor plans & designing spaces using autocad & revit to please the clients needs. You can either do commercial or residential design plus learn about the building codes for both. We have whole classes about lighting, drafting, autocad/revit/adobe products, and much more. Its a lot of hard work & you need to be driven and passionate about it

Going to Home Goods and IKEA doesn’t make you an interior designer. Can you map out a damp course, layout internal fire doors and exits on a architectural plan and draw elevations to scale? People who have actually trained can do this and work with architects regularly. Picking a fluffy cushion and wicker basket isn’t cutting it, sorry just being honest.
Nasra Abdirahman (1 month ago)
What about joey? You state that an interior designer needs to know how to deal with the structural properties of a building, and, I mean joey does most of the building work. Also, she works with someone else, so I guess they have to spilt the job into two parts: building and working with the layout, and adding the decor side of it all. But Eva, I'll admit ur comment gave me some insight on what interior designers REALLY do. So I thank u on your behalf

"The name was inspired by the fact that I used a lot of traditionally masculine things in my jewelry, like nuts, bolts, and screws. I've always been fascinated by society's gender norms and I liked the idea of taking things that were innately masculine and turning them into feminine pieces of jewelry. With my lifestyle blog, also called Mr. Kate, the name transferred seamlessly since I like to challenge the notion of domesticity and prove that you can be a career girl and have a fantastic home, recipe arsenal, and closet!" https://www.marieclaire.com/fashion/tips/a6192/mr-kate-jewelry/

Mascheria perduenabbs Mascheria perduenabbs you clearly aren’t getting my point. Yes she has a gift & taste for decorating, and no one is invalidating that. But that doesn’t give her or anyone the right to call themselves an “interior designer” because she didn’t take interior design as a course in college. Im gonna give a situation: Let’s say i have a gift for debating and making my point across, does that give me the right to call myself a lawyer? No, right? Because in order to be called a lawyer, i have to go to law school. I am referring to your statement “just to have a paper for what?”. You don’t invalidate education & the years professionals spent in order to be called a degree holder. In this video, she is calling her self an “interior designer” when in fact she should just be called a “decorator”.

THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR ENCOURAGING SCHOOL FOR INTERIOR DESIGN! As a young collage graduate in interior design i am tired of “decorators” who think a Designer is just fluffing pillows ! Interior design programs will teach you fundamentals of art, history and space planning. Also love your “know your worth”’!! So many young designers are working for free! This shouldn’t go on for long. If you have talent you should find a place who will appreciate it !

I’m 15 years old and I’ve always loved designing homes and decorating, I found a website where you can design your own home now I’m finished decorating it😂 . I didn’t realize that I actually wanted to be an interior designer until a teacher asked me what do I like and she told me about interior designing, at the time i was 14 and I didn’t know what Interior designing was at all, I didn’t know it was an actual thing but now I’m really looking forward to be an interior designer😂😁

Being a designer is a fabulous profession but it is very hard work as well. So good luck with your studies and your career after it :) I've been a designer for over 5 years and learned so much so I decided to create a YT channel about it. Feel free to pop over for some inspo if you feel like it :)- SPACE FOR EDIT- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx-z-AR8ldVw4FZf9prUD_g

Legally she can only call herself an Interior Decorator. Legally you need a license and degree in Interior Designing to call yourself an Interior Designer. However, that doesn't mean you cant be self taught about things , have a natural talent and become a professional. In her case that's what happend. As far as coding etc...that's why you can work with a professional team who are licensed to follow through with your plan and check coding etc to execute plans!

Amen! That's the biggest difference and it's important not to confuse the 2 so clients know what you're really able to do for them. Both are talented, but only 1 can actually communicate accurate plans to subcontractors that are understood to adhere to construction code.

Mr. Kate knows how to find way to make a living. So, if you believe you have talent, you believe that you are an interior designer, then do what she is doing and stop talking negative things. Make her an inspiration instead to do your thing. I'm a Filipina and always watching her videos to inspire me do things on my own since I'm in the Philippines. I can't hire them. Lol #staypositive#stayweird#becreative

Would you mind if I ask how old you are? Or how long after college it took you to find this path? I am going to be 25 in a few months and feel like it's too late for me to begin this as a possible career path. (Especially with the whole I-need-to-eat-and-pay-bills thing...) I was super interested as a little girl, then got interested in other things, and here I am again. Any insight on that would be much appreciated! <3

I feel like I can do that too like I’m only 11 and I would always think about having my own room and like saying where stuff would go and also just like talking to myself how I would love my house to could of been decorated how I think does not look too much or too little it i think it just comes to my like idc if you tell me I can’t or your just 11 but to be honest the age doesn’t matter it just how I think

Hi. I don't know if you will ever see this comment but right now I am 10 years old and when I was younger people always asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I really did not know but a while ago I figured it out. I took a career test like the one they give you in highschool and it was worth it because it said I was likely to get a job that is a like artistic/creative then a couple of months ago I realized I love to decorate and like remodel things then when I looked it up I found out it was called interior design and you said that the number one thing to do is go to school so I looked up colleges for interior design and wow they are so many to choose from all over the U.S. but the best part is that they are online so I can really choose which one I think will really give me the education I want without having to move across the country. I hope people actually take the time to read this. Thank you
yes we did! good for you!

I think you should title this video: "How To Become A Self-Taught Interior Decorator" because a lot of us schooled + trained designers are insulted by people using the term 'designer' so loosely when describing themselves to others that way, as if alluding to their non-existing credentials. To be honest, some designers are offended by other designers who attended/graduated from an unaccredited school. It can be a big deal. Also, calling yourself a designer can be deemed deceptive to your clients, if they are under the impression that you are technically educated and professionally qualified. For people who really want to get into the profession, I would say: attend a FIDER/CIDA accredited school, major in Interior Design or Interior Architecture, get an internship (whether paid or unpaid), get involved with the student chapter interior design clubs, I.e., ASID/IIDA and work your ass off! With that, congrats on your subscribers and decorating success!

I think this is just snobbery. There is nothing you learn in college that you can't teach yourself. I think we should group everyone as 'Interior Professionals' - if you make a living off something and doing it to a high standard then I would call that individual a professional, regardless of qualifications. Creatives should be creative, that's the integral thing. Anything you can't do can be outsourced which a lot of decorators do, there's no need for all this snobbery. If you love all the technical stuff just become a quantity surveyor.

If ppl who did complete the procedure and getting paid then should Mind their business. Or go a step above and motivate those who have talent but not able to do the course of study to be like them for various reason. Ppl work hard no matter. Mr.Kate taught herself which they couldnt. It is more they are embarrassed for wasting time and money. Dont be. Some ppl have it naturally some have to train for it. Thats just life.

Very well said Bethany. I am an Interior Architect, studied, interned and licensed. This video answers all my questions and doubts of her work. There is more to making a space pleasing to the eyes.
