“It's an extremely tough industry to get into, as there are so many talented designers out there. But if you really love what you do, your persistence and talent will shine through.”

Little Interiors is an interior design and decorating business specialising in designing children’s spaces including nurseries, bedrooms and playrooms run by Svjetlana Miskovic.

Little Interiors design beautiful spaces for kids around Australia and worldwide- that not only look gorgeous- but promote growth and exploration. Svjetlana believes that every child deserves the most beautiful room in the home. Svjetlana was always interested in interior decoration and design but due to other responsibilities never had time or a chance to pursue it as a career. Finally after having her son she decided to give it a go and go back to studying. In June 2013 Svjetlana graduated and became a qualified Interior Decorator and Designer.

1 What did you study and how did your career path evolve?

I studied a Diploma of Interior Decoration and Design. After graduating I decided to get some work experience in the interior design field before venturing out on my own.

2 How does working in interior design specifically for children's spaces differ from other niches?

It's much more relaxed I have to admit. I love working with little people and their beautiful parents in creating the best and happiest looking room in the house.

3 Do you find the industry to be stable? Are the hours flexible?

It's an extremely tough industry to get into, as there are so many talented designers out there. But if you really love what you do, your persistence and talent will shine through. As for the hours, I find it easy to fit the hours around being a full time mum, but I do get occasional night or two (or five) where I would stay working until the early morning.

4 How did you go about building your portfolio? How do you present it to clients?

Everything I do, I share with my online community. My previous work is available on my website so it's easily accessible to anyone that's interested in my work, and that would like to work with me.

5 What advice would you offer students looking to get into the interior design industry?

Do your best to get as much knowledge as possible before entering this field. Get some qualifications as well as job placement at few different interior decoration and design places. Be different, daring and think outside the box.
