Food…Er..Um..Drink for Thought
Now that things have calmed down in my day job I have a bit of time to ponder. So it is timely that this little ditty came across my screen and got me to thinking. Listen to this first; https://www.npr.org/player/embed/506319408/506401504 Can you see where this is going?……That’s right I am going to milk this story…
WHAT IS AN “INTERIOR DESIGNER”?
If you just Googled that question and ended up here I apologize. Unless you want to read through my previous 350 posts on this topic I am afraid this post will not come close to answering your query. Click on the next link. I wish you well in your search. Continuing my series on what…
HOW DO YOU BECOME AN INTERIOR DESIGNER?
Seems straightforward enough. I can imagine lots of high school students or 2nd career seekers asking this question. Of course there are lots of legitimate resources available to those who are curious, books (those things in “libraries” and “book stores”), guidance counselors, friends of friends, etc. But PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER is fairly certain that the world wide…
ID REGULATION: WHICH WAY TO THE FRONT?
I appreciate Robert Nieminen’s support of the ongoing effort to regulate the profession of Interior Design . I agree with all of his points regarding the unification of the profession and the efforts by the anti-regulation contingent to stop any and all ID legislation. As far as Utah’s new ID practice law we can claim it…
IF WE SPEND 90% OF OUR TIME INDOORS WHO REALLY IS BEST QUALIFIED TO CREATE THAT SPACE?
There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that humans (at least in the U.S.) spend 85%-90% of their time indoors¹ While this is old news to many and numerous environmental/behavioral scientists, design scholars, IAQ advocates and professional organizations have referenced this fact, I was reminded of the importance of the “design” of interior space after…
DING DONG THE IDPC IS DEAD!

UTAH PASSES COMMERCIAL INTERIOR DESIGN PRACTICE BILL!
Utah Senate Bill 0117 which allows state certified Commercial Interior Designers to submit signed and sealed drawings (within limited scope) in order to obtain building permits in that state was approved today. Yay! This is the first substantial piece of ID legislation to be approved in several years. Kudos to IDEAL Utah and their lobbyist…
PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER has posted many times regarding the issue of California and its private self-regulated, voluntary Interior Design certification program. While California is the largest interior design market in the nation it remains an anomaly in the big picture of the domestic U.S. Interior Design profession’s efforts to establish nationwide practice licensure status. I have just…
INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE vs. INTERIOR DESIGN
So my point here folks is there are many of us who believe that the term/title “Interior Design” no longer applies. It is a liability. It fails to describe us. Okay I do not disagree. But if we are going to keep our collective head in the proverbial professional sand while this title shift occurs…
IIDA Steps Up to Forge Agreement with Food Service Equipment Distributors
Wow two positive efforts to advocate for the Interior Design profession in one week (see previous post). This time it is IIDA that ironed out an agreement with FEDA which is an allied association that represents commercial food service equipment distributors. FEDA has been a long term opponent of most, if not all, recent ID…
