Not one to shy away from design related controversy PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER offers this gem from down under. Yes I know my previous post was quite high on the ID profession down there but this one seems to have set us back a bit. Of course we do not know if a professional interior designer specified these fixtures or if it was a DIY job by the restaurant owner…..by the looks of the poorly planned corner urinal I would say it was an inside amateur job. None the less we are getting the blame. DRAT!
Here is the Huffington Post’s take on the issue…the comments are amusing.
Mick Jagger is rolling in his grav……………wait a minute…Okay me thinks Mick would be proud
Who best represents you and your profession?
Funny yet depressing that Interior Design is seen as humorous folly and that virtually anybody with a pulse can earn the title Interior Designer. Seems to me the decorators have won the semantic war. Maybe it’s time to retreat and come up with another plan.
Interior Designers say the darndest things. I could argue that this article, is really written about interior decoration by an interior decorator but that is not the way it was presented. What the general public will walk away with is that…”Hmmmm Interior Designers sure know their pillows.”…………………. PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER is told that our effort to validate and advance the profession beyond this stereotype will take time……yeah maybe when New York City is under a 100 feet of melted polar ice.
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”
It looks like my lament caused a return lament. Well I re-lament their return lament. Does that make me overly lamentatious? And how did I become an architect wanna-be just because they make me go AAArrrrrrrrrgggggghhh?
Good Grief Charlie (Burnt Ochre) Brown!
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.
Do these temporary decorator showcases really represent “Interior Design” at it’s best?
