THE CASE FOR CREDENTIALS
So now that Florida has lowered the bar for who can call themselves an Interior Designer (back where it started) what do we do now?
Florida’s Interior Design Practice Act
KUDOS TO JUDGE HINKLE FOR A SUCCINCT AND NON-LEGALISTIC DEFINITION AND DESCRIPTION OF HIS FINDINGS!
IS KARIM RASHID AN “INTERIOR DESIGNER”?
http://www.lvbusinesspress.com/articles/2010/02/08/news/iq_34094794.txt He’s not NCIDQ certified. He lacks the appropriate education and training…. HELL YES HE IS A FREAKIN’ INTERIOR DESIGNER! He should be able to call himself an interior designer in every state and territory in the union and anybody who claims otherwise is blind. We cannot, nor can the government, determine who can call themselves an “interior…
Judge issues opinion in Florida Interior Design Lawsuit
Thanks to the IDPC for posting the judges opinion; http://www.idpcinfo.org/FL_Decision_2-4-10.pdf I am sure both sides will be claiming victory. The anti-regulation folks stake their claim here- http://idpcinfo.wordpress.com/ The pro-regulation side offers their humble take on the opinion here- http://www.idaf.us/news/judgeruling.html Most likely the two professional organizations (ASID & IIDA) representing the so called profession will not…
WHO OWNS THE TERM “INTERIOR DESIGN”
http://www.nhidc.org/NHIDC.NH%20Bus%20Rev.08%20article-ad.pdf Well nobody owns it of course. But there are some who feel that they do. This is a fundamental flaw in the use of interior design regulation to distinguish who is an Interior Designer and who is not. Although the above link is one year old it is probably the most succinct and reasonably…
WITH A NAME LIKE POSH WHAT ELSE CAN YOU DO?
I note that you are just one of dozens of over hyped uber-celebrities who are taking advantage of our career path fire sale. I see these decorators cum “interior designers” as the make-up counter attendants at the mall department stores that are cute but, but like mosquitoes, serve no real purpose other than to cover…
YESTERDAYS TREND IS TOMORROWS RETRO-TREND
Are we daft? Okay just 2 weeks ago interior desecrators were touting the return of “glam”. See my post on the subject. https://porfessionalinteriordesigner.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=17 So as of today the Wall Street Journal (my source for all things trendy) claims that glam is out and trash is in. “Rough Luxe” they call it. Who comes up with this…
YOU DON’T OWN THE TERM “INTERIOR DESIGNER”
http://www.idaf.us/downloads/TC%20%20Business%20News%2010-09.pdf To quote from the article; “This is my livelihood,” Inman said. “I’ve earned the right to be called an interior designer. Others should be able to do the same.” Isn’t that the problem Mr. Inman? Others DO want to call themselves interior designers. Unfortunately your idea of “interior designer” is far different than the majority…
GIVE ME A BREAK….WORD!
http://idpcinfo.wordpress.com/ So the IDPC is lobbying to get their case noticed on network T.V. It will be interesting to see if they can delude Mr. Stossel into airing their grievance. They were able to hoodwink George Will to take their side. Why not Stossel? Stay Tuned http://abcnews.go.com/2020/Stossel/
