My internship at HGTV.com is wrapping up, and in mere days, I will be graduating college. While I’m thrilled to be done with school, (term papers, final exams, etc.) I’m also nervous/excited about what lays ahead. As I’m determined to make my parents proud, (and start paying off my student loans) it’s time to launch my career. I couldn’t have asked for better job hunting advice than I received from Erinn Valencich, Brian Patrick Flynn and Michelle Wiebe.

These talented and busy interior designers took time out of their schedules so I could interview them about becoming an interior designer. Huge thank you to them! And I’m sure, like me, you’ll find their advice to be incredibly valuable, whether you’re a recent grad or making a career change to pursue the job of your dreams in this awesome industry.

Susan Fredman is one of Chicago’s premiere interior designers. For the past 30 years, she and her team have designed grand homes and estates in the Windy City, around the Great Lakes and on both coasts. The Susan Fredman Design Group delivers luxurious designs that also embrace a client’s passions. This month’s tour takes us to Wisconsin where we step inside the home of a client who loves traditional style but wanted to avoid anything stuffy and uninviting. It was important for them that the house worked perfectly for entertaining and day-to-day living, as well as lending itself to curated collections. The result is a brilliant manor with plenty of personality and surprises, like hidden passages and secret rooms. All design work was done by Susan Fredman, Aimee Nemeckay and Barbara Theile.

Susan says: The appeal of this residence begins as soon as you pull into the driveway. This classic manor looks like it’s set in the English countryside. Who would guess that it’s actually located in the middle of Wisconsin’s agriculture center.

The west coast interiors pro favors “maximalism” born out of a reaction to the minimalism of the 1990s. So far on her blog she’s shared pictures of her “vibe trays” used as inspiration for various projects, as well as a couple of shots of her design studio. Kelly says she will share her personal collection of photos which feed her creativity and give her happiness during her busy days.
