MINNESOTA INTERIOR DESIGNERS PUSH FOR PRACTICE ACT
Minnesota now becomes the front line for the push to legally recognize qualified interior designers to be licensed to practice as peers with, or independent of, other licensed design professionals in that state.

ON BEING A C.I.D.
Like calling a tissue Kleenex, regardless of who made it, interior design will always be inexorably linked to interior decoration and all of its drama, divas and stereotypes. Interior design was cleaved from the bosom of interior decoration- we are forever genetically linked- hard as we try to monkey with the gene pool. I firmly…
