Open your own business. You apear to be passionate for helping customers.
"I am ready to start a new job and am feeling like interior design or interior architecture is the field in which I can enjoy my work and excell in the field -- I love working in 3-D spaces and creative problem solving."
"I am interested in but still hesitant to persue architecture because I do also enjoy the "softer" or more aesthetic side of designing in addition to the structure and mechanics."
This statement tells me you should look elsewhere. Your desires are elsewhere. Why would anyone want work in something that does not appeal to them?
"I love detail work, creating color pallettes, and helping customers to put together a vision of their personal space." Then work for yourself and your customers doing the detail work your customers don't want to do themselves.
Go back to UC Davis and ask the business school to help you with a marketing study, and business plan. Take the study and plan to the bank and secure some capital to get you going. Roll your sleves up, put your nose to the grind stone and get ready for some lean and tough times, but you will be doing what you love. The finanical rewards come later. People will experierence you passision and will pay you so they to can experierence it.
Allway remember, risk is always present in being profitable, or being bankrupt, it is how you manage the risk which determines which you will be.
Hope this helps, please keep us posted on your decision
