Managing 
an 
interior 
design 
project 
requires 
as 
much 
creative 
thought-
fulness 
as 
the 
design 
itself, 
and 
the 
best 
projects 
begin 
with 
a 
carefully 
planned 
project 
schedule. 
Typically, 
a 
project 
process 
is 
broken 
down 
into 
distinct 
phases 
to 
establish 
decision-making 
milestones, 
both 
within 
the 
design 
team 
and 
with 
the 
client. 
At 
the 
beginning 
of 
the 
design 
process, 
innumerable 
options 
present 
themselves, 
but 
as 
the 
design 
progresses, 
the 
number 
of 
options 
gradually 
reduces 
as 
the 
project 
gels 
around 
spe-
ciÔ¨Āc¬†
themes 
and 
conÔ¨Āgurations.
Drawings 
are 
the 
primary 
format 
through 
which 
design 
choices 
are 
explored 
and 
communicated. 
The 
mode 
of 
drawing 
changes 
as 
the 
project 
is 
reÔ¨Āned¬†
and 
Ô¨Ānessed.¬†
At 
the 
beginning 
of 
the 
design, 
freehand 
sketches 
are 
the 
best 
way 
to 
test 
concepts, 
while 
later 
in 
the 
process, 
computer-aided 
design 
(CAD) 
is 
necessary 
to 
Ô¨Āne-tune¬†
dimensional 
decisions 
and 
coordinate 
with 
consulting 
engineers. 
New 
technologies 
are 
making 
it 
easier 
to 
explore 
design 
concepts 
in 
three 
dimensions 
at 
several 
stages 
of 
the 
design 
process.
