A sense of your own style 

Most people can learn the basics of design, but the most successful designers add their personal flair to their projects. You may have always favored a particular “look” or still feel unsure as to your preferences. The more experience you gain in bringing client visions to life, the more confident you will feel in adding your own distinctive “stamp” to every project.

Versatility is a great asset and you should never override your client’s preferences, but showing a signature style across your portfolio will allow you to build a distinct “brand.” Even if you do not sell your own products, it is still helpful to think of yourself as offering a unique service.
Therefore, you should aim to develop a USP – Unique Selling Point

The ability to apply basic design principles 

There are a huge number of potential styles you can use to improve or create an interior space, but there are certain “rules” or guidelines that most creative professionals incorporate into their practice.
Objects arranged in threes are usually more aesthetically appealing than those arranged in odd numbers and mirrors can make a space appear larger than it actually is. 

Project management skills

Each client represents at least one distinct project. Even when working in a team with others, a designer will still need to take responsibility for organizing their portion of the design work, ensuring that it is ready on time.

Freelance designers must possess especially strong project management skills, as they must coordinate all stages and aspects of the project. As you gain experience in seeing
projects through to completion, you will soon be able to provide accurate estimations as to how much time a room, home, or commercial space will take. 

Good communication skills 

While some clients will be cooperative and communicate their needs clearly, others will have unrealistic expectations, be prone to changing their minds, or have no idea as to what they want or need.
A designer should anticipate that some clients will need extensive guidance in choosing elements of interior space, whereas others may have devised an unrealistic brief that far exceeds financial and practical limitations. In these instances, a designer will need to exercise tact and diplomacy, drawing on their past experiences when explaining to a client what is and what is not feasible. 

Financial planning 

A freelance designer needs to have an appreciation of cost – what fixtures and fittings cost, how much it costs to cover a floor in a mid-range carpet, how much builders and decorators typically charge for various jobs and all other common costs associated with interior decoration.
This is essential, in order to properly advise a client on how much they should expect to spend on the project and the anticipated breakdown of costs. 

A desire to keep on learning 

Some styles and design principles have stood the test of time, but each year brings with it new approaches, colors, and decorating techniques. In order to offer their clients an up to date space, a designer needs to take responsibility for keeping up with trends. However, a good designer knows that it is not a good idea to try out new fashions just for the sake of it – every space is an individual project and requirements will differ in each case.

The ability to work with other professionals involved in a project 

Interior designers often work with people other than individual clients. For example, they may need to collaborate with builders, painters, and architects in order to realize a specific vision. 

A willingness to work in different environments 

Even if you choose to specialize in designing a particular kind of space, each environment is different. You may work in an urban flat one week and then move on to designing a country house interior the next. It is fine to favor one type of project over another, but do not become too trapped in your comfort zone. Pushing yourself outside your usual parameters will force you to tap into your creativity and keep yourself engaged with your profession. 

General professionalism 

Interior designers often work with individuals and organizations who are spending a lot of money in pursuit of a particular result. They expect their project to be well run, completed on time and to be carried out in a professional manner. From the way you dress to the way in which you talk to clients, aim to always uphold the highest possible standards.
