PROFESSIONAL INTERIOR DESIGNERS- O
So we have raised the white flag on the semantic issue of ‘Interior Design”
We do not own it, we cannot claim it as our own. Apparently anybody can…even though all legitimate resources lead us to believe that it has a body of knowledge that can only be acquired through education, apprenticeship and testing.
At what point will we realize that this is not an issue of interior decorators vs. interior designers? But it is a campaign/battle/struggle (insert your own war or sport metaphor here ________) between Certified Interior Designers and those who are merely interior designers?
We could be well on our way to distinguishing ourselves via credentialing and a strong unified public relations campaign. Unfortunately we got lost for the past 37 years trying to figure out who we really are.
