While studying Entertainment Technology, we took a set design course, and I was to design a set for a stage play, (the name escapes me now.) I do recall deciding on a Rococo Theme for my set.

Interior Designers are therapists, personal assistants, and magicians. It is our job to anticipate the needs of the client, and execute it most fantastically. Every idea must be daring, fresh, and awe-inspiring. You must be able to use your cunning intellect to sway your client from their choice of Beige to going with Cashmere instead. You should also develop your intuition skills; to be able to take the emotional temperature of every person you come in contact with.
Hi, I'm Faye; an Interior Designer. I am not a wiz at Autocad; (there's an app for that). I did not start as an Assistant Designer and work my way up, and I do not have a show on HGTV...Yet.
