Differences between “Interior Design Engineering” & “Decorating”

Interior Design Engineering is the art and science of understanding people's behaviour to create functional spaces within a building. Decoration is the furnishing or adorning of a space with fashionable or beautiful things. In short, interior designers may decorate, but decorators do not design.
