20 Books to Help You Launch & Propel Your Interior Design Business

We’ve all heard the debates on whether or not you should go to school & get formally trained as a designers, or if being self-taught will suffice.

While I can’t answer that for anyone but myself, what I can say is that no matter which path you choose, you never really stop learning.

As a designer & a business owner of any kind, there is always something to learn — a new skill to add to your toolbox or an old technique to sharpen & perfect.

A lot of that learning can come by way of doing — there’s no substitute for experience — but some of that learning you have to actively pursue, whether it’s taking CEU courses, watching webinars, listening to podcasts, or good ol fashioned books!

To help you on this journey of never-ending learning, and ultimately on your designpreneur journey, I’ve compiled a list of 20 books to help you launch and/or propel your interior design business.












Have you ever read any of these books? Or are there other books that you’ve read along your business journey that have been a huge resource?
