BPF: Do you think that decorating is just as difficult as interior design? How are the two different as far as challenges are concerned?
MH: I interpret interior design to be a bit more technical, similar to architecture. It involves more calculated details and drawings, like designing custom furnishings, a kitchen or an interior stairwell
. Decorating is more about selecting and pulling things together like furnishings, fabrics and accessories. There is certainly an art to both! Good designers and decorators must have a sense for the same fundamental design principals...proportion and scale to name a few.
