Looking for a New Job? Queen Elizabeth Is Hiring
Many of us have interior designer dreams, right? With HGTV setting up an app that lets us design our own home and shows like the new, behind-the-scenes Fixer Upper spinoff, many of us think we can design like the pros. But there are some of us who are pros, and if you are one, maybe you’re looking for a new, high-profile job. If that’s the case, you’re in luck, because England’s Queen Elizabeth is hiring a designer to update Buckingham Palace.
According to the website for the Queen’s staff, The Royal Household, the Queen is hiring a “Curtain Maker and Soft Furniture Upholsterer,” AKA an interior designer who knows fabric and design history. This unique opportunity would be for a designer willing to work with their own hands creating drapes and cushions and reupholstering existing furniture, while working with the palace’s archival fabrics to create a look that is both updated and fits within the royal style.
Talk about a high-pressure gig.
On top of designing new pieces, the designer will work with existing furniture to monitor its condition, state of repair, and overall quality. On top of the Palace, which has over 1,000 rooms, the designer will also monitor and maintain Windsor Castle and St. James Palace.
