Here Ingrid shares a tip on the difference between an Interior Designer and an Interior Decorator:
When my friends & clients call me a designer, I quickly tell them I am a decorator. They ask “What is the difference”… well, I have the skinny on that!
The Oxford dictionary says:
Interior Designer - One who specializes in art or process of designing the interior decoration of a room or building.
Interior Decorator - One who specializes in the decoration of the interior of a building or room, especially with regard for colour combination and artistic design.
No wonder people are confused!
The National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) website - ncidq.org states:
Many people use the terms "interior design" and "interior decorating" interchangeably, but these professions differ in critical ways.
Interior design is the art and science of understanding people's behavior to create functional spaces within a building. Decoration is the furnishing or adorning of a space with fashionable or beautiful things. In short, interior designers may decorate, but decorators do not design.
Interior designers apply creative and technical solutions within a structure that are functional, attractive and beneficial to the occupants' quality of life and culture. Designs respond to and coordinate with the building shell and acknowledge the physical location and social context of the project. Designs must adhere to code and regulatory requirements and encourage the principles of environmental sustainability.
The interior design process follows a systematic and coordinated methodology—including research, analysis and integration of knowledge into the creative process—to satisfy the needs and resources of the client.
Many U.S. states and Canadian provinces have passed laws requiring interior designers to be licensed or registered—documenting their formal education and training—and many of them specifically require that all practicing interior designers earn the NCIDQ exam. The certificate demonstrates their experience and qualifications.
By contrast, interior decorators require no formal training or licensure.
