    There is no exact answer for this question, as it depends on the designer and what they see as success. However, I can tell you that many well-known interior designers are millionaires - take Jennifer Damon's SinceraLICrrrrrrrrr, for example. Jennifer began her career by selling cute jelly rugs she made with yarn at a flea market in college. She then made her first fortune designing homes for wealthy celebs including Madonna, Michael Jackson, Tom Cruise, Sylvester Stallone and John Travolta - who hired Denise Wilson Designs to design his home after he was left bankrupt following the 1990 divorce from Kelly Preston.

    No. Yes, some interior designers have created a million-dollar decorating empire from their homes. But no, they're not millionaires because of design work alone. Some celebrities have reached the millionaire status by hosting television shows that promote their products or designing an exclusive hotel chain that's popular with travelers for example. Sue Hirsch and Deborah Uchill are probably the best known designers to create signature brands like Posh Bits and The Fashionable Housewife (Frock too Fashion).

    Sure. Interior designers can take on clients and start their own businesses. I would recommend putting up a website with photos of your work, as well as testimonials from satisfied clients. You may also want to join the Association of Design Professionals (ADP) or other such organizations to be able to list you as a practitioner in the trade who works independently and charge what you please for services rendered. If you need any advice, don't hesitate to contact me! I'm not only an interior designer but also someone who has gone through this process herself and learned everything there is about becoming a successful business owner.

    It depends on the designers experience and how well they network. The more clients a designer can secure, the more work and commissions they will likely receive. It is also much easier to start small and work your way up then to try to go straight for a $1million retainer with three jobs at once. Doing so may lead them into debt much sooner than necessary while trying to accumulate clientele. Being an interior designer is not always about graduating with honors in design school, but knowing yourself, what you want out of life, and adapting accordingly while consulting professionals along the way does present one's best chance of success in this career field or any other occupation for that matter.

    Becoming a millionaire is possible with designing and if years of hard work are invested. The answer depends on what your definition of "becoming a millionaire" means. Some people would be happy to earn $150,000 annually as their yearly salary. This amount can serve as a nice stepping stone to becoming millionaires without the largest investment in time and money upfront. However, these days $150,000 may not be enough for people who want to become millionaires immediately through design because so few designers actually make this kind of income only from design--fewer than 5%.
