I have always loved decorating, art, I love to paint, I love furniture, fabrics, and fashion. I’ve done faux finishes in my home, though I’ve never taken formal classes, and have decorated a few friends apartments.
I love the odd, unusual and creative arts. Metal, glass, wood works.
I’ve heard there’s a difference between a home designer and a decorator. How would one start out? I am taking classes here and there, but it’s not the complete picture. What type of companies would you work or intern for? I’d love to be on the cutting edge of unique and unusual things.
This would be my second career in life, so I’d like to do it sooner rather than later.
Hence, I love party planning. It’s like decorating to me, but you get to be more dramatic and change it often. I’ve done a few bridal showers and a few parties, but on a small scale.
Can you make a living at it, or is it more of a hobby? And do you have to be in a large city? I am in a midsize but growing town.
First, focus on getting a degree in Interior Design. It sounds like this is a better focus for you. Talk to your professors about jobs and potential opportunities. Those professors are your KEY to finding an interneship sometimes.
Party planning is NOT like decorating. There are parts of that include decorating, but they aren’t the same. You need a different education and license to be a wedding or party planner.
Both Decorating and planning HAVE to be a full time career. Both require a lot of time, effort, and calling. It’s easier to find a job in a larger city.

Add Yellowcard to that very short list of spirited pop-punk acts that made the transition from an indie to a major label and got better in the process. The SoCal by way of Florida band’s brand of strident, post-emo pop has only improved with each release, even as their sound grew more anthemic and radio-friendly (and reached double platinum status). Their first album since founding guitarist Ben Harper split the group, Paper Walls has been described by the band themselves as a sort of group therapy attempt, an effort to “tear down obstacles and heal old scars” amongst the five members. Unsurprisingly, the lyrics are direct and honest, while they’ve broadened their sonic palette to allow a tad more dissonance in with their urgent and propulsive pop-punk. The songs “Shadows and Regrets,” “Paper Walls” and “Five Become Four” mix thoughtful lyrics with a sped-up, catchy violin in a way that’s both “mature” and the ideal soundtrack to your next extreme sports adventure. –Mike McGonigal
I am a sophomore in high school who is looking to pursue a career in interior design. Next school year, I am taking an Interior Design class. But I feel that it will not be enough. How can I fully prepare myself for whatlies ahead of me in college.
Sort of irrelevant but:
For college I would love to attend either the Cleveland Institute of Art, or Syracuse University. If you can give me any other suggestions, that would be extremely helpful.
the best help you can get for any career in try to get an internship somewhere because they will work with you to not only teach you but to help you gain experience. plus it will give you a glimpse of reality if that is really the career that you want. because who knows you might start doing it and hate it.

Product DescriptionA superb collection of fiction and poetry from a major feminist voice in American literature Wonderfully sardonic and slyly humorous, the writings of landmark American feminist and socialist thinker Charlotte Perkins Gilman were penned in response to her frustration with the gender-based double standard that prevailed in America as the twentieth century began. Perhaps best known for her chilling depiction of a woman’s mental breakdown in her unforgettable 1892 short story “The Yellow Wall-Paper,” Gilman also wrote Herland, a cunning, wry novel that imagines a peaceful, progressive, environmentally conscious country from which men have been absent for two thousand years. Both are included in this volume, along with a selection of Gilman’s major short stories and her poems.
I have sprayed the Wall paper with vinegar & water and then let it sit for a few minutes before I scraped it off. It worked great on the first couple of layers, but not very well on the fourth and fifth layers that seem to be fused to the plaster. Does anyone know of anything else that I can do to get those last couple of stubborn layers of wall paper off my plaster walls?
Keep it saturated with hot water and eventually it will come off. Use a sponge and persevere.
