This is a subject very close to my heart & something I have had numerous discussions about over the years, since I first started my Degree Course in Interior Design in 1986.
I have given a couple of talks at InteriorsUK 2012, & KBB at the NEC, Birmingham on ‘The evolving role of the Interior Designer’ with another Industry Professional, & fellow member of The Society of British Interior Design, Diana Cellela.
The slides from the presentations are here for you to view and comment upon.
The video of the seminar is also available to see on the Highlights from the InteriorsUK 2012 Seminar Programme.
I hope you gain more insight into the very different roles a professionally qualified Interior Designer & an Interior Decorator play, within the as yet, unregulated UK Interior Design Industry!
