NEWS FLASH BOSTON! INTERIOR DESIGNER CREATES HOUSE THAT IS ACTUALLY FAMILY FRIENDLY!
FILM AT 11:00
With tongue firmly planted in cheek PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER scours the wires for interior design news that you can use to help convince your fellow citizens that we really are worthy of professional status and respect.
PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER told himself not to continue punishing his hyper-sensitive identity complex by subjecting himself to another season of HGTV’s Design Star series. But lo I cannot avoid it. The HGTV juggernaut is omniscient- it is like being forced, with eyes propped open, to watch a slow motion train/school bus collision. The promotion of the series and its impact on the profession of interior design is unavoidable and in my not so humble opinion……devastating.
Again I do not have a problem with anybody using the term “interior designer”. What we (those who have earned the title) have to do is really decide if it is worthwhile to redefine it………me thinks not.
Fans of Desperate Housewives will now have a better appreciation of “interior design” …..NOT!
Another example of “Interior Design” being portrayed as a hobby cloaked in a social event masquerading as a shopping trip. But hey at least they are “green”
We no longer compete with just eachother……
All the more reason to realize our potential as a unified profession by combining our intellectual resources to create a valuable resource to society. If we fail to do this, and soon, nobody will make the effort to call us.
Why should they?
Hmmm. Don’t you think presenting OUR service as “a luxury” is just plain bad business? Please feel free to present your service as a luxury- not mine.
Huh? You mean the public, your customers, will figure out that some decorators have been charging way above and beyond list cost and that the once off limits habitat (albeit very cozy) of ethically challenged decorators is now exposed for what it is. A sham.
